Hi, Thank you for taking the time to look at my property: 1 bedroom apartment - 1601 9th Ave, Capitol Hill, Seattle.
I am looking for a responsible person that can take a very good care of my apartment, want it to be clean all the time and the possible tenant will see the house as his or her own and I hope that you can send me some personal information about yourself.
The apartment is fully furnished with all necessary amenities (exactly like in the pics). It has dishwasher, washing machine and clothes dryer. There are two parking spots, a storage unit where you can deposit my furniture (if you don't like it and you want to use your furniture). Pets allowed.
The monthly rent for the whole apartment is $900 and also includes all utilities such as water, electricity, Internet, cable, parking etc. so there is nothing else to be paid on top of that. I am looking for someone to rent anywhere from two months up to 5 years or more.
The only problem is that I had to move with my job back to Madrid, Spain, where I am now. The property is being managed by Airbnb and they will handle the whole rental process.
If you want to know more about the rental process please get back to me and I will send you the step by step procedure.

Ana

Hi
I'm glad you're still interested. As I told you in my first email, the entire rental process is already arranged with Airbnb. The transaction will be made through the Airbnb system and this is how the owner and tenant protection policy works:
To secure the apartment, you must book it through the Airbnb platform. I'm asking for the first month rent of $900 and $900 deposit (refundable). When the inspection is finished, if you are satisfied with the apartment, all you have to do is to sign the rental agreement and move in. If you do not like the apartment and you do not sign the rental agreement, you will receive a full refund of your Airbnb deposit and first month rent the same day you've made your decision.
If you wish to continue, reply with your full name, phone number/whatsapp, current address and a photo of your ID and I will send the reservation invitation by email so that you can make the reservation through the Airbnb platform.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to receiving news from you.

A cordial greeting,
Ana
