Conversations in Hindi – Searching for an apartment Posted by on Feb 26, 2012 in Hindi Language

Many of you want to stay in India for a while or relocating because of your job assignment.  For such a situation,  you might want to search a decent apartment but don’t know how to proceed in that situation.

In India, you can search for a vacant apartment through a real state agent (also known as “property dealer” at many places) or through the internet. They are located in each locality or you can find vacant places on the net.

You have to tell them to find an apartment as per your requirement and your budget. Once they have found a place for you, they will ask you to have a look it and will go with you to see the apartment.

Now, I will present an conversation on how to hold such conversation and ask them some common questions in such a scenario.

Michael came to India on a job assignment. He is from Stuttgart, Germany. He is looking for a two bedroom apartment in the city of Noida.

Real State Agent to Michael:
नमस्ते / नमस्कार भाईसाहब!
Namaste / Namaskar Bhaisahab!
Hello / Hello (more formal) Sir!

Michael to Real State Agent:
नमस्ते / नमस्कार!
Namaste / Namskar!
Hello / Hello!

Real State Agent to Michael:
बोलिए मैं आप के लिए क्या कर सकता हूँ?
Boliye mein aapke liye kya kar sakta hoon.
So, what can I do for you?

Michael to Real State Agent:
