Thanks for your reply. As regards to a video tour in other to view the apartment and get more acquainted i told you in my previous mail about my new job which I got relocated because of,and that is why I need responsible individuals to live in the apartment and take good care of it while i am away. As you can see in pictures,the apartment is in a very good condition. I have it locked as i have the keys over here with me,as i would want my eventual tenant to meet the apartment in good condition,nothing different from what is been shown in pictures.

I am very sure you are aware of the current situation of the whole world. These pandemic has caused a lot of crisis and all precautions have to be taken properly, in other to stay safe and healthy.

I was in Berlin twice few months ago because of the interested people in renting my apartment. They were unserious and couldn’t afford it. Some even said they will pay after sometimes in the apartment, which they only wasted my time.

As things stand now,i have several other Erasmus students whom are also interested and coming into the city for the same calendar and are ready to make immediate reservations for their respective dates. And i must say it’s really good to hear from you with all your details i will really like to have someone like you as my tenant. And before i can secure the apartment for you,i have to be sure about your financial capabilities in paying rents for other months also that my time won’t be wasted.

Like i also said earlier,it will also be stated in the rental contract about refund for more security. That at the point of move in should the apartment look different from what’s shown in picture,then you will be refunded back your payment which you have made to secure the apartment.

I want you to know i am a lady of integrity and great personality and wouldn’t indulge in any sought of unjust to tarnish my own image. I have got a very good job which earns me a good living to be comfortable with and my main interest is to rent to well behaved and responsible individual who is capable of taking care of the apartment like it where theirs. So I assure you are on safe hands renting from me.

Do get back to me as soon as possible with the required details for the rental contract in other to proceed.

Kind regards,
