Zee House

I'm having a pretty horrible time finding people for the new place. Although I've spoken to over a dozen people about the place, and shown it to about 5 or 6 people nothing seems to be panning out. Last night I called a couple less-than-perfect candidates and accepted them - however one has decided to go with another place and I'm waiting to hear back from the other. My $85 Washington Post ad produced a disapointing 4 or 5 phone calls. I imagine that this is a bad time of year to be looking for people, but I was hoping for better luck. My latest thought is to make a run down to Mason and leave a few flyers around - there have to be some graduating seniors looking for a room in my area.

I'm pretty scared about how much it costs me for each day that place is empty. This was a big balls move in the first place, so I'm not sure why they seem to be shriveling up now.

On the plus side there isn't that much to do in the way of repair. I finally got internet access at the new place. It's amazing how boring a house can be without access to the ol' information superhighway.

    Hang in there, Pussy. Heehee. Just kidding - Tiger. Definitely Tiger. I work and occasionally play much closer to Mason than you - so if it is any help at all I would be more than happy to print out some info that you email me and post away at Mason. I would think that any plans towards wiring up the internet in the new place would bode well with that crowd. Lemme know if there is anything else that I can do....
    Good luck Tiger. Hang in there - you have made the right decision.

  2. I agree, GMU is a good idea. Another could be an email to all your friends. Although i don't know of anyone maybe Marty would (for example). couldn't hurt. Is there a local sterling paper? You might find a more focused audience than the post.

  3. There is always your sister Sarah I'm sure they would be more than happy to rent from you.
