Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or you can email it to

I would speak with your Realtor. If it's a bank owned then the bank will either turn them on for your inspection or have you put them in your name for the inspection. If it's a short sale or the house is empty then the owners have probably had it disconnected so that they do not have a bill to pay. Again, ask you Realtor why there is no power. One way or another, it will be turned on for your inspection.

Good luck!
