How long is the lease contract...I assume at this rate it would be month to month....Are they waiting for a short sale?

This property is also "On Hold" in the MLS at a sale price of $585,000. Rent of $1,100 per month as you have indicated is unrealistically low for this property of 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths and 1,370 sq.ft. I cannot imagine anyone leasing this property at this low of a rental rate for any term.

Always be certain you are dealing with the actual owner / landlord when leasing any property.

By the way? There's no notice of default on the property, so it is NOT a short sale.

It is STRICTLY a scam.

If something appears too good to be true.....................

More likely it's a scam by Nigerians.

Their typical ploy is to find an old listing from the MLS - this lease listing expired in 09, MLS #P658831, and a for sale listing was recently priced at $575k - and advertise it at a RIDICULOUS price, ( Last rate was $2500/month) and get some Rube to send them a cashier's check for the first month's rent plus security - $1700, in this case.

Obviously, there are a LOT of Rubes out there, as they've been doing this scam for a few years now.

Send a cashier's check to Nigeria, and expect the keys back in the mail?

Stop being so stupid, people.
