Apparently, apartment hunting in Berlin is just as crappy now as it was two years ago. Or even crappier because apartments have become even more expensive. My favorite example from two days back: one room (as in: one room to sleep, live and eat in, but at least a separate kitchen), 38 square meters, 400€ (gross, that is including water and heating). What the hell is wrong with landlords here?

Also, what's so hard about making a couple pictures of the apartment you're offering (good pictures, because, people, you do want to get rid of the apartment and showing it in the worst light isn't helpful with that) and scanning the floor plan to add it to the exposé? How do you think does it make your apartment attractive if I can't see how it looks?

Hopefully, a friend of my father's who works in realty part-time stands by his offer to help me find a new place to live. I honestly could use a little professional help here...

I feel your pain... really.

To rent an apartment in my *small* town (an hour and a half outside the city) starts at $800 for a 1 bedroom.

To actually rent in the city you can get a 200 square foot studio (one room like the example) for $425 + $35 for utilities.

Your example sounds exactly like my apartment, and I live in a relatively small town about 45 minutes from Frankfurt. Argh! I'm looking for a new place as well, but it's hopeless.

Fingers crossed for you!
