Sorry for the way that posted. I tried contacting the person listed but got no answer with phone. I sent an email and got what appeared to me a "generic response". It almost seems to good to be true. Thanks in advance for any help I receive.

It is NOT for rent. Good catch. If someone responds to the rental contact the FBI or Sheriff!

Hi Brian,

There are no rentals in our MLS for that rental listing on Avery Oaks. It could very well be a scam or a rental "by owner' that is not serious enough about renting to return your call.

I did find 2 listings for $1500 in the 33625 zip code. If you are interested, I can email those for you to review.

Tons of rental scams are on the internet - they are on this site, craigslist etc...Contact a licensed real estate agent to assist you in locating a legitimate rental.

Call ANY agent in the area, they will be able to determine the legitimacy of the rental. Without one, you are on your own.

Brian Benko, work with a property manager/rental agent to find your next home.

Rental arena has many scams.
