The property has been removed so I guess that answers that!

Here is every property actively for sale in Boston:

If it looks like a scam, it probably is, especially with something so outrageously out of the current market standard. It's best to contact the listing agent but I would be careful.

101 Belvidere st is in the Back Bay, by the Sheraton Hotel. There are only a few residential properties on this street.
The place looks nice, and the price is dirt cheap for such location. There are studios in the area for more than that.
I would proceed with care here.

Hello,

I would contact the listing agent but it doesn't seem legit at all.

Best of luck.

There is no 101 Belvidere St in 02115 zip code in the tax records.
I would use a local rental professional to save time and money and also to make sure you don't miss a great rental.

Best thing to do is to contact listing agent and if that does not work find a good rental agent to represent you. There's been a lot of scams out there and is best to have someone who knows by your side.

There is no agent or firm listed in the mls registry by the name of Craig Mcconachie which is the name listed as the contact person and his company

Get a good buyers agent to assist you.

I would say buyer beware .... that seems too good to be true. Work with a rental agent on your side to protect yourself from scammers.
