EUR1500 Dec 1st: 1-bedroom for 1200 inclusive, 2-bdrm for 1500 (15 min from the artis/pijp/Roetersstraat)
I'm a mild-mannered 33-year-old American bachelor ex-pat looking for an apartment, starting December 1st. My preference is a 7-month lease to begin (until July 1st), with possible extension. I can also certainly accept a 12-month lease.
I need at least a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and microwave. My budget is 1200 per month (inclusive) for a 1-bedroom, or 1500 per month (inclusive) for a 2-bedroom. I am happy with furnished/semi-furnished. I am NOT interested in paying a 1-month agency fee, above and beyond the 1200/1500.** For a 7-month lease, I am also open to an apartment share (800/month max inclusive).
Finally, since I am a universitair docent (assistant professor) at the University of Amsterdam, I'm interested mostly in an apartment within 15-minute bike/tram from the artis, pijp, *or* Roetersstraat/Sarphatistraat.
Please contact me via email if you have an apartment that satisfies the above. If the location/apartment is exceptional, I can possibly go beyond my current budget. I can certainly provide references, both from my landlord and my boss.
** However, if you are an agency and my costs fall within 1200/1500 per month after including your fee, I'll think about it.
