Showing an apartment is a balancing act. What do they read on Craigslist and what do they see in person?
It's about illusions and personalities among rooms: clean, eucalyptus bathroom smell must somehow mesh with yet distinguish itself from fresh-baked-brownies-kitchen smell.
Also, meeting any potential renter is a test of one's ability to stretch the truth through detail: disheveled books and unsipped tea on the table by the chair near the window imply that happiness, solitude and Vitamin D are constantly acquired whilst living here. Additionally, the unrolled yoga mat and not recently used keyboard say "Yes, you can have it all."
