Virginia,

I attempted to call the number and it is a recording saying they are only open 9-5 pm M-F, which is odd for a real estate company.

I have never heard of this company rental advisors. I would call back during the business hours they have listed and ask them for their NY Real Estate Licensing information. Also ask if you can see this apartment. If they hesitate and ask you for money I'm going to assume it's a scam.

I am a REBNY (Real Estate Board of New York) Agent. We agree to share listings with other agencies. And I do not see this company listed on the REBNY site and I've never heard of them before.

Please be careful.

Hi Virginia,

The listing has a telephone number listed in it. I would begin by calling that number. I'm a little concerned because the price is so low for the area. I went to their website. http://.www.superlowrentals.com and it asks for personal information.

It's a little upsetting to think a scammer could have infiltrated the Trulia website. Trulia requires all agents to enter their state license I.D. numbers so I can't understand how a scammer could have added a listing to this site.

You have to be careful in this market, I have heard horror stories of renters taking apartments only to find out a few months later that their rental was being foreclosed on and they received and eviction notice from the bank and lost their deposit in the process.

This is why it is so important to ask any real estate agent you work with for their pocket I.D.

Best of luck!

Please beware. I'm 99% sure this is a scam. There are no studios in Inwood under 1200, let alone a 3 bedroom for 950. You've been warned.
