Always use a REALTOR, they have your best interest in mind and can investigate any listing you would like to look at or get more info on it for you.

Dear Trulia, How do you manage sham listings?
If you are looking for a place to live then I would suggest that you work with a local realtor. There are plenty of scams out there.

Do these include washer/dryer?
Probably best to contact the apartment community for a question such as this. Remember, if they only have hook ups - you can usually negotiate, or add rental for a washer and dryer.

My prior property manager is attempting to retain security deposit for resodding a yard that was in poor condition when I moved in. Is that possible?

Where can I get information about good cause eviction rights for tenants that live in Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) apartments?
I'd contact a good Real Estate Attorney. Realtors are forbidden to give legal advice, so you probably won't get a lot of answers on this forum. Let me know if you need a referral.
