1.Use Whois lookup tool like http://www.whoisxy.com/ to check the whois information.Because legitimate company properly update whois database.
2.Then check whether domain owner contact details and E-mail address is currently active or not.
3.Finally take some reviews about that company using Scamadviser.com,Webutation.net.
I am sure above the steps are very useful to check any company is legit or scam.I hope it will be very useful to you.
I agree with Lance that the best way to get the information you need is to contact a local Realtor. If you know someone in the profession they are a good place to start, and if you don't I am always more than happy to help in any capacity involving real estate in San Francisco and the Bay Area. The MLS is the only universally recognized system for finding up to the minute updates on real estate in your area, and as a Realtor, I have access to this system.
All the best and good luck with your search!
