One of the strategies of rental scammers is to price the ‘fake’ rental below the average rental rate in a specific market. This allows the scammers to receive as many emails or inquiries as possible.

One way to see if a rental is too good to be true is to look at average rental rates for like properties within that area. rentBits has a rental rates tool that currently offers rental rates for over 4,000 cities in the US.

Hi Julie,

One word It is a scam.

You are wise to be skeptical. Find a local agent to work with you and verify this or any other rental listing. There are scams on Trulia, Craigslist and other sites. Whatever you do, NEVER send money in the mail for keys.
