Dear Jessica this seems to good to be true, and more than likely it is. there are many scams going on. Be aware that there are people being evicted renting out apartments. Save yourself the the headache and find a professional to help you find a home.
Let common sense prevail. This is an uncommon home, and $1,200.00 wouldn't cover the real estate taxes. Deal with a Realtor, who will help you locate a rental that is appropriate for you. All the best to you.
