Lauren Lagow, Renter in Plano, TX

Does anyone know if this is a legitimate listing? I know the neighborhood very well, and this seems unusually low for Plano, and for Whiffletree

This is not legitimate listing. I have seen this type of scam on my LEASE lisiing where someone in out of USA is telling the people wanting to lease to send filled out applicaiton in email and then send few $$ depoist and the key comes in the mail for the home. They will only communicate via email.

Don't fall for this......don't send any money. Use the service of a Realtor who can make appt for you, show you the homes and put in application for you.....Bela

Way too low to be true....probably more like $2000 a month in reality.
If they can't show you the house or meet you in person, never ever send money through the mail or by Western Union. Unfortunately there are a lot of scams these days. Google the phone number and you will see they have posted the same price on listings all around the country.

Sorry Lauren- It is really frustrating as an agent when bad brokers do things like this and take advantage of consumers by mis-using the purpose Trulia was set up for!!!

If you want, I would be happy to put a watch for you in this neighborhood and if something pops up I can email you the info.

Text me your email address and I will set you up. It will also include any foreclosures that hit the market as well. My cell is (214) 215-4145.

Have a great day!

Too bad, My parents just purchased a house in this neighborhood, so I didn't think it was, but it would have been perfect to be right down the street from them! Unfortunately, 1700 is a little out of my price range. Thanks for your answers ladies!

6909 Harvey is the only one I found in the Plano area. The lease price is $1695. Would you like to see this property? Also, call me and I will send you a list of the rentals in Plano to your email. Rentals usually are leased quickly, so the first person to see the home is the winner. I look forward to helping you. 972 896-5986
