How long should you wait for a flat application in Geneva?

Hey everyone,

I have been trying to find somewhere to lay my head on in Geneva for quiet a while, and have to say my luck is yet to come...

Although I have been seeing quiet a few crappy/smelly/non-charm flats through my company's real estate agency, I really have my heart for one I found privately through friends(lease take over)...I submit the application to the agency and got an email reply of 'the building manager would inform you if you are chosen'...how long do I need to wait to know whether I am 'chosen'or not? or is there a way to find it out proactively?...please share your thought....many thanks

Re: How long should you wait for a flat application in Geneva?

How long ago was that? No news is often bad news, sorry to say.

Look at the thread 'why so few apartments in Geneva' and if your French is up to it, watch TSR1 Swiss TV tonight at 20.20. InfraRouge is hosting a debate on the accom. crisis in Geneva+ Arc Lémanique. Sadly the only apartments that will come on the open market are the smelly and ugly ones- or if you are very lucky, those which are waaayyy over-priced. All the rest will never be advertised and sold/rented by word of mouth to those who can afford big money.
