These last few days I've been helping Irit and Einat find a room for Einat to rent in Jerusalem for the coming academic year, and it ain't simple. It seems that demand seriously outstrips supply in the nicer areas of Jerusalem and the market adjusts. It seems the way to rent out an apartment (or find a new flatmate) these days is to advertise on one of the Internet sites . most popularly www.homeless.co.il - and then invite all interested people for a 2 hour open house. Interested candidates are then "interviewed" bu the owners or flatmates who announce their decision a few days later.
Here we are in an apartment in Rehavia with Einat waiting to be interviewed.
