    The shortage of housing

    Would you please help me with my sentence and correct my mistakes? I am not sure if it sounds natural. Is the word "seekers" appropriate in my sentence? Could I use "applicants" instead?

    The shortage of housing has reached such high level that for every flat offered for rent, there are at least 300 hundred seekers.
