Last tennant moved in yesterday. There’s a bit of an odd story behind this. Three of the rooms were let very quickly then of course there’s been this gap since. Quite a few people came to view the last room and although they all said they liked it no one came back. Last week I decided to do a new advert as the previous one was looking a bit tired. Within hours of going live on Spareroom (on Thursday 2.30 am) I had a call, by the end of the night I’d got a viewing with another booked for Saturday; again the person said he loved it, even promised to bring his deposit to secure it at 7am the next morning – but didn’t. Then my friend came round on Friday night and I asked her- casually – to have a look at the room and give me an opinion as to why it wasn’t going. The first thing she noticed was the Jean Michel Jarre album cover I’d got propped up on the bookshelf as dressing ‘Why on earth have you got a skull in the room?’ she exclaimed, and for the first time I noticed that there was indeed a picture of a skull overlooking the room. ‘Have you any idea the effect that could be having subliminally?’ The skull was promptly removed and on Saturday morning the room was taken. All week I’ve been inundated with calls from others who had seen the advert and wanted to know if the room was still available. What do you make of that? So if you’ve got a room to let – beware the sublimnal messages. The house feels complete now.
