Most likely, the "guy in Africa" has nothing to do with the house. He's just scamming you to get your deposit money, and may even lease/sell it to you - even though he doesn't own it.
Well known scam.... more
Not without linking it, no one knows what you are looking at. Call a local Realtor and ask if it is really a real rental listing or not. Often they rent and still are on these online sites or they can be scams. Never send money to see a house or to get a lease.... more
I don't see that it is listed with an agent. It may be For Sale By Owner. If it is in fact for sale, the sellers may not have posted pictures for a number of reasons. They may have pictures scheduled with a professional for a future date, or perhaps the home is in need of repairs.
From experience, I would first contact the school district office for 204. The maps for the school district you are currently interested in are always the most current at their location. Boundaries change due to enrollment and population fluctuations. Please review the link included and contact information:

Have you found a home yet? Right now is the best time to look for a rental in Wheaton, this is when most lease's are up from Wheaton College professors as well as Students. You should lock in to a home before August , I believe this is when the market will be short on rentals as everyone wants to be settled before school starts.
