Dear Real Estate Agents, Roman God(s) and/or Other Deities,
I'm looking for a one OR two-bedroom (and, as you'll see, my budget is adjustable accordingly) for between 1000 and 1400 a month.
In terms of "ideal" requirements, I am interested in the following:
1 - Certain areas of Monti (Madonna dei Monti, Baccina, etc. and perhaps Cavour).
2 - Areas east and north of Colosseo (especially along/around Via dei Santissimi Quattro, Via Capo d'Africa, Via Marco Aurelio, Via Frangipane, etc.).
3 - An apartment in *good* condition.
4 - A bathtub.
5 - An American-style kitchen (i.e. where the living/dining are in view).
6 - Not ground-floor (but, if higher than one floor up, I’d like an elevator).
7 - Sunlight.
Terraces and balconies are not high-priority issues, and even in the above list, I am flexible depending on how many "pluses" there are against the "minuses."
In terms of that second bedroom, especially, I am flexible. For example, if it's a one-bedroom apartment with the kind of bedroom or living room that can accommodate two kinds of "spaces" (i.e. an office / work-area for my writing), and/or also accommodate the occasional long-stay houseguest (I have a mother that would *like* to visit for several weeks at a time -- grin), then I will consider the higher end of my budget, even for a one-bedroom...
I would like the kitchen and bathroom to be fitted / "attrezzati" -- but do not need the rest of the apartment to be furnished (and in fact I would prefer it -- as I would like to buy my own furniture).
I have some time for looking, and am flexible about a move-in date (a good thing -- since I know I am being very "esigente" -- sigh), but I would like to decide sooner rather than later.
In terms of duration: I'd like a lease for at least one year, and preferably longer.
That Fussy Chick.
