I wish I knew a cartoonist… Apartment Hunting Online

Print Friendly

This is another blog post that is just a random comment, (so if you’re expecting wisdom or summary: don’t. That’s not always the point of a blog… some people I know are still getting used to that).

With hopes that I may be relocating in the future, I’ve begun looking around at apartments. Having barely done this in my entire life, and only having done it seriously once before, I forogot what a pain it can be to find a place where you’re going to be living. I also forgot just how underhanded people can be.

  • Quaint, loft apartment in Historic area! Wow, that sounds nice.
  • Hardwood floors! Classy!
  • Very quiet, top floor flat available! Oh, good, I hate hearing footsteps above me!
  • Click for Pictures! Crap.

OK, I’m not actually looking for a place in Amsterdam (and if I were, I would want some kind of shade!), but I think you get the idea of what I’m up against. Finding an apartment, long distance, over the Internet, is difficult.
