Daily update on my house-hunting. Some consideratons based on the experience gained so far.
The apartments in a nice neighbourhood are far from the office, those in a quiet area far from the center. In those in a lively and trendy neighbourhood it is difficult to park, those near parks and gardens are far from the metro. Those that are in nice buildings are furnished with grandma-like furniture, those that have recently been maintained have small rooms. Those that have a nice terrace do not have elevators, and those that have elevators are far from the grocery. Those that are bright have old window frames, and in those with a brand-new fridge and washing machine there is no bathtub (Mathilde’s only condition). Those that are close to our friends are on the wrong metro line, and those that are spacious are facing north. Those that have nice landlords have noisy neighbours, in those where the neighbours are nice the real estate agents are jerks.
And all of them are quite expensive!
And you, what are the most important elements for you to choose your apartment?
