Renting an apartment

Your professor is a landlord from whom you would like to rent an appartment. Yet, the rent is a little too high for you. So you point out various shortcomings around the appartment hoping that you might be able to lower the price.


  • Take a minute to think about the things that are important for you in an apartment.
  • Think about two or three shortcomings that the apartment that you are about to rent has.


  • Show your interest in the apartment to the landlord without becoming overexcited about it.
  • Negotiate about the price by pointing out various shortcomings (and potentially some personal things, like being a student etc.).


  • Discuss whether you could share the apartment with two friends of yours.
