The Ad states ROOM for rent. Which means you will share the rest of the apartment with another individual. You can always call to ask for more information. Do not give any monies or personal information up front. Good luck with your search!

Hi Jadedliluse,

One of the things you want to be aware of is that things that are too good to be true often are. I am not saying that this is a scam, but if you do call about this listing, be aware that there are a ton of rental scams out there. If they want you to pay by mail, or that they are located overseas and want to rent way below market rate, you can be pretty sure that it is a scam.

Trulia has this posted on its listings: Avoid rental scams! Situations involving wire transfers or a landlord who is currently traveling and can't meet you in person can be rental red flags. If you think you've found a scam, please hit the "Report error" button above and tell us!

As always, be safe out there,

Room for rent means YOU RENT ONE ROOM IN AN APT. You will be sharing common areas with your apt-mates, such as bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining area....
