Thank you for responding so quick.
I'm trying to find someone who will take care of the apartment as his own. The only thing, is that I'm currently in Italy and for the moment I cannot come there to show you the apartment. However, I hope this will not change your intentions to rent my apartment because we can still reach an agreement. We can do this transaction through Airbnb - www.airbnb.com. I'm paying for the services of the agency, so there will be no extra costs for you. In this way, you will receive the keys in less than 48 hours to inspect the apartment. They've already got a set of keys so here's what you have to do if you are ready to rent the apartment.
To reserve the apartment I will need your personal information (name, address, phone number). Also a copy of your ID or passport is necessary to prepare all papers for you to become a future tenant.
Once I get your details, I will contact Airbnb agency with them to start the transaction. They will send you an invoice and further information regarding the rental, along with payment instructions to secure the booking. The deposit consists of first month's rent and the security deposit (kaution) and is just to reserve the apartment and not a commitment. After you pay the deposit, the inspection time will be settled (you just tell them on which date you're available) and within 2 days, the agent will come to show you the apartment and help you with all the formalities so you can live in the apartment.
If you will be satisfied with the apartment, you can move there in the same day. All you have to do is to sign the rental contract and Airbnb will release the payment to me. Also, if by any reason you would like to cancel the transaction or you don't like the apartment, the agent will refund all your money and bring the keys back to me. I'm quite confident you will like the apartment, but if not, you still have the option to cancel, and get your deposit back from the agent, immediately. Also, in case you're tied up in another contract and cannot move in immediately, we can arrange the viewing now, and reserve the apartment for you.
I would appreciate a quick response, because there are several others interested in the apartment, and I need to know if I can count on a deal with you.
