Have you ever experienced that moment when your landlord just called you up and informed you that you have to move out tomorrow? Well, I know how that would feel as it is your room that we are talking about, not like moving tables from one to another at the mamak stall. It can be very stressful especially when you do not have much time to locate the potential rooms that you are looking for and short listing them according to your budget and location and of course the tenant mix in the house and whether you are comfortable with the house or apartment.
Thank goodness for the internet as it can help you tremendously by keying in a couple of words and “tada” u have potential current and recent rooms to go and visit and start your shortlisting process. Maybe some of you guys may know this, but for those who don’t this might help. What you need to do is get onto google and type the keyword “room to let ss15” for example and of course a list of results will show which is not a surprise. What you need to do next is to click on the “Show options” button on the top of your results and you will see a list of options on a menu on the left side of the browser. Next thing you need to do is click on “Recent results” and that’s it, you have results of available rooms that have been posted as recent as 1 hour ago. Gone were the days of calling a list of phone numbers and only to be told that the room is not available. Definitely a way to save on your mobile phone calls. Hope this helps, if it does, do shout a comment to me, appreciate it. Happy room hunting !
P/s: This is how it looks, and guess what? this website is on No.1 on Google under recent results.
