Kigreen30, I also experienced the same problem with a rental property that I had posted on Craigslist a few years ago. I reported it to my police department , they took all the information down but that was it, they were no help at all. What I did was, I taped the information on the inside of the front window. I typed on a 8x10 bright colored yellow paper that my house was "for rent" and the monthly rental amount. I stated my name and phone # and stated that I was the owner and the only person authorized to show the inside of the house. I also stated if they saw my house posted on another web site for a lower rental amount(my monthly rental amount was $1450, the scammer used my photos and listed the monthly rent for $995, they stated that they had a family emergency out of state and they were looking for someone to take care of the house until they returned 18 -24 months later
Once you mailed them a $700 security deposit they would Express Mail overnight the keys to you.
Aside from that there is not much you can do. I also did daily drive bys to make sure there was no one trying to move into the house. I also placed a large FOR RENT BY OWNER sign in the front yard with my phone #. The sign was very helpful, I received numerous calls inquiring about the house and I had to explain to them that is was a scammer trying to get them to mail money.
I am sure if you place a large for rent sign in your front yard, you will be fine and have no problems.
Best Of Luck To You<

Sign in yard - yes - obviously

Photographer to take pictures - I take my own, but if I hired someone I would be there to let them in.

Turn on lights etc - you think your agent is just sitting around with nothing else to do. Maybe sometimes but to think every time - no. I am a big boy and can turn lights on for my buyers.

12 hrs notice - sometimes, but would you really tell the buyers agent to not show the house because they gave 6 hrs notice or 30 min notice? I had an agent call me at 10:30am today to show a house at noon. It happens and I said yes.

If it's a $1.5 mil oceanfront vs a $75,000 split foyer it could make a difference to an agent what they will drop to go open blinds.

A Real Estate attorney would know the answer. If your question is could an eviction prevent you from finding new housing, it very well could.

Larry Lichtman answered:
Hi Dana,

Find another agent. A good Realtor will get back to you in a timely manner. There is no excuse for any Realtor or other real estate professional not to return a call within a week. I make it a practice to get back to all messages within 24-48 hours. There are plenty of Realtors out there who would appreciate your business and value your time. I suggest you start interviewing other Realtors until you find someone you really want to work with.

Good Luck.

All the best,
Larry Lichtman

Hi, Yes, there is an FHA 203k loan (streamline and regular 203k). Contact a local mortgage professional to get the most up to date info and facts regarding these loans as the criteria can change often.
