Flat searching is a bitch. By the time you find a place that doesn't completely suck it's your imagination that usually betrays you. I think the hardest thing about walking into a strange flat is picturing your life inside it. After all, making a house into a home takes time, so a 5 minute walk-around is not always enough to seal the deal. Unless, of course, you go with Noam, who has her own ways of testing out potential homes.
