Gone were the days when I was constantly on the move. From room rental to flat rental and eventually to apartment rental. After settling down, i.e. after marriage, both of us were more or less domesticated and no longer nomadic.
Therefore, I know a lot about the hassles of finding apartments. I had to trudge through one after another to find one I like. I couldn't afford hiring agent so the works all fell on me.
