conelypatrick, Home Buyer in San Diego, CA

is this listing a scam?

Asked by conelypatrick, San Diego, CA Wed Feb 27, 2013

my sister and i are looking to rent it, our combined income is about 3k a month after taxes, so 800 a month isn't unreasonable.

my question is, is this the right price for what it is?

heres the link to the listing

Be careful!!!

The information for this rental was taken from a Postlets on line ad. Scammers often post fake rental ads using Postlets.

The phone number for the person posting the ad has an Indiana area code. In these days of cell phones and free long distance plans that may not be significant but it may be a red flag.

The price does not make sense, does it?

The description of the property is not a rental description. The description talks about the price when the house was last sold. That is irrelevant information for a rental add. The description looks like it was simply copied from a property description that you might find on Trulia, Zillow or many websites.

This smells like a scam to me.
