Here is how to answer them. Why are you thinking about moving? When to you plan on moving? How many people are going to live with? Questions that aren’t looking for a ‘yes or no’ answer are meant to evaluate you as a potential tenant. While there are no standardized ‘right’ answers there definitely are something you don’t want to say. With the quiz below we can simulate the process, and provide you with feedback so you can answer your landlord’s questions correctly.
You've got to come up with a solid reason as to why you're looking for apartments. Otherwise it just makes you look sloppy.

Unless you are paid very well that's not a good sign. Because you are basically telling them you can't afford it.
