Not a scam. It is however under agreement:

Right now out of the 43 condo's on the market for sale in Southie priced over $600K, 35 are under agreement (leaving only 8 actively for sale)! The market is very competitive.

Here is a single family on the market in the same price point:

Here is everything actively for sale in Southie:

Hope that helps!

This is an actual condo, is under agreement and scheduled to close on March 17th, listed at $625,000.

Possibly the Buyer may be looking to rent a room in the unit, the rent does seem a bit low for it to be the whole apartment.

South Boston rents are generally lower than Boston Proper, so you never know. It's worth a call.

Altho' it's safe to say that the Buyer has no legal right to enter in to a contract for the property until he takes possession, unless it's in the sales agreement to be allowed to show to potential tenants.

Best of luck,
Stephen

When things seem to too good to be true they usually are. I would recommend that you find a local Realtor that specializes in rentals and work with them to save you time and sanity. There are many rental scams out there be careful.
