If you want to avoid scams, interview several agents on this site and choose one to help you in your real estate search. We can set you up on an auto-email feed directly from MLS, so you know that the listings are legitimate.

NEVER SEND MONEY ANYWHERE!!! If the person sends you a "cashiers" check for more the amount and want change back, it is a scam. NEVER SEND MONEY Of you are the landlord or the tenant.
