Best of Luck.
It may be difficult to tell honest ads from fraudulent ones. By posting a picture and providing a telephone that number should separate those that may not be real.
I have not relocated. I still rent properties here in Long Beach.
If you would like to see one of my listings on short notice feel free to contact me on my cell phone at 562-472-4577
Thanks for inquiring!
Long Beach is a very interesting place for rentals. Many of the most sought after properties are not listed on the MLS (which feeds to Trulia).
The best way to find rentals in Long Beach are:
1. Look in the Grunion Gazette or Downtown Grunion (or use their website gazettes.com which updates as each property is rented).
2. Drive through the neighborhoods you like and look at the names of the management companies posted on the buildings. Then go register with these management companies.
3. Align yourself with a local realtor who specializes in rentals or one who is willing to work with you (be prepared to pay them something for their time) and verify property ownership on ads you find on the internet.
Most importantly, if the deal looks too good to be true, then it is probably a scam. Good Luck in your search. Hope this helps.
