Because we're moving out, and our landlord Dave is going to have total
strangers renting his house instead of a former co-worker, his partner and a
random, he's decided that as he's in Singapore, he'll use a real estate
agent to let the place.
I got a phone call from said real estate agent yesterday,
saying that a prospective new tenant that had looked at the place previously
wanted to have another look with his prospective co-tenant mates. I told her
that 6:30pm on Tuesday would be okay.
So what seems to have happened is she's subsequently told all other
interested punters to go around and have a look at the place at 6:30pm on
Tuesday. Here we all are expecting to show the house to three people, and
instead, more cars than you can poke a stick at are lined up on the kerb at
6:25pm. We had about 30 people traipse through the house. It was quite an
unsettling experience having that many people wandering around the house
looking at everything. Hopefully they'll get enough applications from that
lot so we won't have to endure another such exhibition. The rental market
must be pretty hot at the moment.
Still, I can't see why anyone would rent this place when for
exactly the same money you can have this place instead...
