My only advice is to be extremely careful when using Craigslist for rentals. At least half the listing on Craigslist for rent are bogus and scams. I have no information on Realty Connection they may be perfectly legitimate though I'd Google them and if they don't have a website , I'd move on.

Under no circumstances should you ever mail anyone a check for a property you haven't been shown by a real living person.

Good Luck.

Check out: also and click on the "rental" tab at the top.

Be careful if you decide to rent from an owner because many are in pre-foreclosure status.

It would not be unreasonable for you to ask to see a current mortgage statement to be sure they are paying on time. Also you should make sure you make your payments to the owner per the public records. There are some scammers who are renting out vacant properties they do not own.

Hello Tracey - I have seen people in your situation a few times and can only speak for myself and what I have done on behalf of the bank. Once the Bank foreclose they will attempt to make contact with anyone living at the property. If they are able to make contact, they will give you time to move as long as you agree to hand over the keys. In some instances they will give cash to help the tenant or homeowner move out. You sign an agreement that on a given date you will move and in return the bank will give you a check. If the bank is unable to make contact, then they will move forward with eviction proceedings. It is always best to work with the bank and they will work with you. You do not have to go through eviction if you cooperate with them. In the meantime you should take some time to look around to see what's out there as you will have to move at some point - could be in a month's time, could be six months. Hope this will help you breathe a little easier. Good Luck! ... more
