Is this price correct or this listing real? The name to call is not the name on the answering machine. The answering machine is also full.

The area code 609 is for New Jersey. There is no agent by this name registered in DORA as Licensed in Colorado. I agree with the below comments. The price is too low for comparable rentals and no local presence show for leasing agent on this property. You may want to have Trulia check on this listing. Please do not wire or send any money out of state. Meet a local representative to the property when signing a lease and verify that the person actually owns the property. I have had my listings twice now show up as rentals on other sites. They were not for rent and I was not aware anyone was marketing them as such. They were scams. Not to say this is, but you should work with a reputable leasing agent.

Sounds like a scam. If it sounds too good to be true, it is.

Troy, I agree with Robert. This does seem questionable- the property has their own website, with none of the units at that price, most are at least double that level.

Given the tight rental market in Denver, there have been lots of scams recently, as Robert mentions.

Be Careful, do your research, and good luck!

Troy,

I would be careful with this one. The monthly rent seems low for the area and a 2 bedroom condo. If you do reach them be cautious and don't send any money by cash, Western Union, or Money Orders in the mail. There are a lot of rental scams running in the Denver area right now.
