Thank you EF!!! We finally got an apartment!

I have to say I was already giving up hope with the flats in Lausanne.

We had tried to get us a home for nearly 3 months and I had no clue how to make our application more attractive...So after yet another "sorry, it's a no" letter I spent a couple of days here in EF reading all the possible tips how to build a good application and changed our tactics accordingly. We would try to be faster (first to see, first to apply), we wrote a cover letter and attached all possible recommendation letters we could only think of....

And today, 5 minutes ago, it finally happened: we received a phone call saying we got a place! And not just a place but a NICE place in a NICE area!

I couldn't be happier! Without this excellent forum we'd still be looking with not much hope in sight!

Re: Thank you EF!!! We finally got an apartment!

Well, someone here said in one of the threads that everyone they know has eventually scored a flat....

....But still the little devil on my left shoulder was whispering "maybe we'll be the first ones, then..."

But nope!

So excited now to move out from this tiny furnished room and attack IKEA and just simply... settle down and make us a home!
