My GF and I came across a wonderful apartment to rent but dealing with the Real Estate Broker soured the whole deal for me. We got on great with the landlady but could tell that even she didn't like dealing with this guy and he wants 1200 EUR "in cash at the signing" for doing absolutely nothing. He didn't even know much about the damned apartment. I was warned that the system here is that jacked up but I at least expected the person I knew I would get robbed by would at least attempt to earn 20 of the 1200 EUR by knowing his craft.
Are there any good sites with private listings in the Mannheim/BW region since most of what I've found is more geared towards the Munich area? Thanks in advance!
