Oh the joys of renting.
We thought we were being generous in giving our landlord 6 weeks notice before leaving only to find out you need 3 months. Who knows that far ahead what they are doing! (We certainly didn't!) So we took on the task of looking for new tenants only to find out our landlord is rather picky.
Within minutes (literally) of placing an add on craigslist we had emails and the phone hopping with intersted people. Apparently even with the rent hike its cheap for this area. We had close to 30 people through, this was a little strange and amusing for Eleni and she had varying reactions to the many different visitors from being really shy to almost hugging one guy she just met. We then selected someone we thought was a good prospect only to have him rejected by the landlord. We moved down the list of people who had left contact details only to find they were no longer interested. After some stress and many prayers we decided at the last minute to let a fellow visiting from the US through to look at our place.
Lo and behold he is keen, so we thought well lets give this a shot and our landlord actually likes him. We spent the night praying that it would all go smoothly. Next day they are here signing the lease and we are free. How fabulous is our God.
Now all we need to do is sell off and give away all the furniture we spent the past 11 months purchasing. This is slightly less daunting now that we know how quickly craig's list works.
