We finally got an apartment! 2 months to the day of searching, visiting, applying and being rejected (great training for one's ego, btw) and now we are the proud owners of a 2BR with a fireplace and a balcony, 10 min by foot from Andrey's work and 5 min from the lake! :)
Finding an apartment is no trouble here, finding and agency willing to rent it to us, is!
The stats are:
- 72 apartments seen
- 41 applied for
- 2 "sorry not for you" callbacks
- 10 "sorry not for you" letters
It's a Chanukkah miracle - got the call on the second day of, and a New Year's present - lease starts 1.1.2013
Now off to Pinterst to make a shopping list for supplies needed to make all my home decor plans/dreams come to life!
