Many landlords wait until they have several inquiries, before they start to invite applicants to viewings. It is normal to wait up to 10-14 days for an answer from the landlord.
Especially in the larger cities, where demand is very high, it can take a long time to answer all the applicants. Therefore, the landlord often starts by contacting only those applicants which he or she thinks are best suited for the property.
