Hello Michelle, thank you for your inquiry,
First of all, sorry for the late reply (I had a terrible week) and your email for some reason went into my spam folder. The unit I own is available and ready to move in as we speak. The rent is for the entire property.
A few things about myself, I'm 54 years old and I am inspecting offshore oil rigs. Oh, and you can call me Christopher. Most of the time I am offshore, I return to the city a few times/year.
If interested, please give me some details about you (age, lifestyle or whatever you think makes you a good tenant).

A few things about the apartment to refresh your memory: The utilities and HOA are included in rent. Also the parking, there is a private garage.
The rent is for the whole apartment, I will not stay there because I have another home from the oil company.
The condo is furnished just like in the photos I sent you, it also has a washer/dryer. I will move my extra furniture in the storage if you have your own, you choose what will remain, so basically, you can rent it with or without my furniture.
What else...? the neighborhood is very safe, behaved pets are permitted (there is no pet fee).
The move in amount will be the first month + one deposit.

I would need a few rental details as well, how long do you plan to rent, starting when?

I'm currently on an oil rig but I could plan a swing back to arrange a showing. I'm sure you will love it, no one lived there since I've taken the photos. Also please add my email to your contact list, last time I got an error when attaching the photos.

Thank you for your time,
