Hello Dek Sharma,
unfortunetly it is quite hard to find a Wohnung often but to be more succesfull I recommand looking on ebay-kleinanzeigen.de and in Facebook groups where people post about Wohnungen. Also maybe you can let somebody check your grammar and spelling of your e-mail to the landlords in german to give a good first impression.
Regards,
Sarah

Hello @Sharma

Nice to hear from you again!

Unfortunately it's a common problem to find affordable flats or rooms in lots of German cities.

You probably already used the usual websites to search for ads, right? Like these ones:

https://www.immobilienscout24.de

https://www.immonet.de

https://www.wohnungsboerse.net

If you are open to the idea of living in a shared flat (aka WG) you might find interesting results on one of these websites:

https://www.studenten-wg.de/angebote_lesen.html?preismode=&newsort=&stadt=&fuer=Zimmer+in+WG&mietart=egal&zimin=egal&zimax=egal

https://www.wohngemeinschaft.de/immobilien/immosuche.aspx?etype=16

https://www.wg-gesucht.de/en/

Just a little tip (that you might also already know): Back in the day when I searched for a room myself, I didn't just send a "copy&paste" mail to every ad that I was interested in. Instead I tried to give a brief self-portrayal that enabled the landlord/tenants to get a first impression of who I am.

In which city are you looking for a room? If you tell us we can do some research about organisations or initiatives that might be able to help you.

And what documents are you still missing?

I wish you all the best for your search. I know that it can be quite disencouraging sometimes, but you got to be persistent.

Best regards,
Thorgen
