I must admit, while I've been very good at looking for places to move into, bishi_wannabe and I have been pretty slack about actually applying for places. I sent some forms off on Monday, and there have (aparently) been calls made to our references. I was pterry laid-back about the whole affair, but now that I have seen some more houses I'm beginning to hope that we get this one place in particular.
The only problem is, we tried to pull a shifty and have offered a lower price than they asked for.
So, in an off-handed manner, I phoned up the real estate guy today to ask about how our application was progressing. Aparently, they have processed it - it is now in the hands of the landlord.
