Hello,

I just read your e-mail regarding my apartment located in: Leibnizstraße 85, 10625 Berlin. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen (65 m2). The rent is 450 euro/month included additional cost. The security deposit is 1450 euro, and you get it back when you decide to leave the apartment (you will have to give me at least 30 days notice).
A little bit about myself so we can get to know each other better.
So, I am Valeria Etchudez I am 51 Years old, I have 54 year old husband Darius and we work at IT-Tech in Amsterdam.
As for me, you can rest assured that I will never ask you to leave the apartment without announcement. You will have access to a very large and well ventilated cellar, where you can store things if you need to.
I would like to know something about you, for example, your occupation, financial situation, your monthly income, how many people will have to live at home and for how long do you plan to stay?

I hope you got a good first impression, and please if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Would love to hear back from you!
Kind regards from Netherlands,
Valeria Etchudez

Thank you for your quick reply.
The apartment is available for a long-term rental and is exactly as you can see in the pictures, so you can rent as long as you want. There will be a regular contract between us. You will have a completed residence registration form, signed by me. The registration at the address is possible.
As I said in my previous email, I live in Madrid and will have to come and show you the apartment and sign the rental agreement.
After moving to Madrid, we started renting the apartment through Airbnb.com, but it has been quite a hard time for me to come often and check everything, so I decided to rent the apartment for long terms. Airbnb provides an online platform that connects hosts who have accommodations to rent with guests seeking to rent such accommodations. I am Airbnb member since 2015 with good reviews.
Like any other transactions on Airbnb, they will handle payment and it will be released to me only after you check in. By any chance the apartment would not suit you, you have the option to cancel the reservation and get full refund.
After you confirm the booking and payment to Airbnb, I will come as soon as possible back to sort out the lease. I use Airbnb because the owner of the property is covered by Airbnb policies.

If everything sound good to you, I will enable the apartment on Airbnb so you can book
I will need your full name, your actual address, phone number, the date you want to move in and the maximum estimated period of your staying.

Best regards,
Claudia
