Kary L. Krismer answered:
I was wondering on some of the homes offered for rent it will have a price of say $700/month for a 3 bed/2 bath for example.
If the price looks too good to be true it is likely someone trying to defraud people. Not the real owner of the house--someone just looking to collect a deposit and some rent.

errol.jacques, Renter in San Diego, CA
errol.jacques asked:
For some reason, the crime map option isn't showing when I type in a search. Instead, it says "for professionals" over and over again on the map. I'd really like to use the crime, transit, grocery, etc. options all on one map, but it just keeps saying "for professionals". How do I fix this?
