Well, this morning I get an email from the owner and here's what he said.
Hi Elizabeth and thank you for your message.
Unfortunetly we won't be able to rent you the apartment because they just started renovation in our building and for the next tree month it´s gonna be really noisy!
Hope you will find another place.
Ummm, wtf? I can't believe my luck. Based on the photos, the building and the apartment are in perfect condition so I'm not sure this guy is being truthful with me. I am so bummed. I haven't even come close to finding an equivalent apartment and now, I really don't have the energy to keep looking. Every apartment I like is rented or too expensive. I wrote the owner back and said I wouldn't mind the noise so hopefully he'll reconsider. What bothers me most is his apartment is still listed for rent for all the dates except the ones I need it. If his apartment building is being renovated, why wouldn't he block out the next 3 months? Sounds fishy, right?
