The rental market must be heating up as this is the second request we’ve received in two weeks asking for help in locating a cool apartment. This request comes from a reader in Amsterdam:
Do you reckon we can find something under $2000 a month that actually has some character or are we being too optimistic here?
We want the feel of a loft (hardwood, light, brick, vintage details) but are lured away from that idea sometimes by places with 2 bedrooms, modern fixtures, backyards and storage. We basically know what we don’t want (the average stuff out there), but what we do want doesn’t seem to be out there in places like Capitol Hill, Queen Anne and whatever other neighborhoods close to downtown are called. To boot, Craigslist is sooo depressing. Do you have any tricks to share? Our time is ticking as my husband is in a downtown hotel now, and I’m coming over in about two weeks.
