Which information is part of a successful inquiry and which writing style should be used? Our example of a successful apartment application will show it.

Taking some time is highly recommended to write a successful application.

Your inquiry is the first contact to tenants or your future landlord. A majority of the applicants is already rejected due to their inquiries.  By writing a good inquiry, you will convince the tenants or landlords and stand out from the other people searching for accommodation.

Hello Marie,

my name is Milan and I have just come across your ad for the 2 bedroom apartment. The view into trees from the balcony and the bright rooms with the wooden floors look fantastic in the pictures, I am in love :-)

Some information about me: I am 31 years old and studied Social Education. After having spent five years in Stuttgart I will start my new job in full-time position on a regular basis working for a welfare agency for young people and families in Nippes on April 1st - the location of the apartment is perfect for me. I love to cook and preferably use high quality ingredients bought fresh from a local farmers' markets. It is important to me to have a healthy diet and to work out physically. Jogging in the morning is part of my daily routine. You have written that the landlady wants the tenant to do basic maintenance and repair work. I will do this with pleasure. I even own a professional toolbox set (model Master Electrician II) produced by Engelbert Strauss.

If you want to know more about me, then just contact me by phone on 0177/0000xxx (preferably in the evening between 17:00 and 21:00) or by email. I am currently in Cologne so that I am spontaneous and flexible, available for viewings daily from 16:00. You can have a first impression of me by checking my Instagram profile: https://www.instagram.com/ xxx_xxx/Thanks!

Thank you very much for a reply and your time in this matter, it is greatly appreciated, Marie. Have a nice day!

Best regards

Milan

Example for a successful apartment application addressing the landlord

Good evening Mrs. Koppelstetter,

my name is Milan Kovac and I am very interested in the advertised 2 bedroom apartment located in Marienstraße. I am 31 years old, a non-smoking person and a studied social pedagogue. After five

years of living in Stuttgart, I am going to start a permanent full-time position at a welfare agency for young people and families on April 1st in Nippes – therefore, the location of the apartment suits me perfectly. I can present my new employment contract and my positive credit report to you with pleasure. Please let me know if you need any other documents.

I am responsible-minded and reliable. I have lived for at least five years in each of my previous two apartments and I carried out basic repair and maintenance work by myself. I will do this with pleasure in my new apartment as well. My last home in Stuttgart had a wood floor as pictured on the images. So I am already familiar with the special wood floor maintenance.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact me by phone on 0177/0000xxx (preferably in the evening between 17:00 and 21:00) or by email. I am currently in Cologne so that I am spontaneous and flexible, available for viewings daily from 16:00. You can visit my Xing profile for more information about me: https://www.xing.com/profile/ xxx_xxx

I wish you a nice day and I would be pleased if I had a chance to be invited to a viewing. Thank you for your time, Mrs. Koppelstetter.

Kind regards

Milan Kovac

We wish much success with your accommodation search!
