Advertising An Apartment for Rent

advertising an apartment for rent

Within a few hours, I had received a dozen phone calls from people who had seen the apartment for rent ad I displayed. I began to keep a list of their names and phone numbers saying that I would get back to them. I didnt want to show the apartment until the weekend, which was still several days away. Two days after announcing that I had an apartment for rent, I had more than sixty phone calls. I was getting quite annoyed and was seriously considering asking more for rent. I now had fifteen people lined up to examine the apartment. The sound of the phone ringing was now irritating me.

I was also amazed that some people had the nerve to call at the most inconvenient hours. There was no way I’m talking to someone about an apartment for rent at midnight. I didn’t even bother to take that insensitive persons information, I just hung up angrily. I contacted the newspaper the next day and requested them to remove the apartment for rent ad. I was in no condition to deal with another fifty phone calls. Sure enough though, when I arrived home, my answering machine informed me that I had eighteen new calls. I could not believe that an apartment for rent was so much in demand. I called the current tenant and asked her to remove the sign from the apartments window.

That weekend, I started to display the apartment and I was struck at the quality, or lack of, that people showed. Some of them were unable to provide any references. My favorite was the young girl who didn’t have any references or job, and said that her married boyfriend was finding her a new apartment so she could be closer to him. I couldn’t stop myself from wondering if her married boyfriend was someone I knew. By the end of the weekend I decided that the apartment for rent sign would not be displayed again, as I have found a few desirable tenants. Next time though, I’ll make sure that I ask for more rent.

Making Great Coffee

There is nothing more satisfying than having a freshly brewed coffee in the morning. I say fresh as good coffee is not about getting it out of the jar but actually making your own from fresh beans. You just can’t beat the aroma of freshly ground beans.

Coffee Origins

Coffee has come a long way since it was first discovered in Ethiopia in the 15th Century. It is now thought to be one of the largest agriculture exports in the world. The actual country that coffee beans from will determine its flavor, aroma and body and the taste characteristics will also change depending on the growing region. For those of you that like strong robust coffee, Brazilian beans are a favorite and Brazil has the largest export of beans per year than most other countries.

Barista Perfection

There is no perfect way to make a coffee it really depends on your taste buds but the best way is if you buy whole beans and grind them yourself at home. This will produce the best tasting coffee. You can grind using a mortar and pestle but this is not only time consuming but hard work. There are some great coffee machines on the market that contain an inbuilt mill and this is by far the easiest way. Coffee machines have evolved since they were fist invented many years ago and now you are able to make coffee at home as good as any Barista in any coffee house. When choosing a coffee maker you will want to make sure that it has all the suitable functions and enables you to make the style of coffee you love. Many on the market are aimed at different types of coffee, such as lattes, cappuccinos etc. However there are also certain ones that will produce all styles of coffee. They are more expensive but well worth it if you appreciate fresh coffee and it something you will use often.
