Probably not. There is no street number posted and as you expressed it sounds too good to be true. There are lots of scammers working the tight rental market now. My listing http://www.trulia.com/property/3083545073-1427-35th-Ave-San-… is for sale not rent but is has shown up on Craigslists and Facebook as a rental.
One couple sent me the e-mail string they had with the person offering it, using the e-mail address faithalison79@yahoo.com She was offering it for $1,300 / month
The prospective tenants were told to go look through the windows to see if it net thier needs. They got there and saw my sign, called me and got the reality check.
Beware of rental scams. Never send money without seeing the inside of the property and meeting the landlord or the manager.
Lots of listing data is being taken from all the aggregators and being used to post the property as a rental. The stories of fraud abound. There was the woman who was offering an apartment in the Richmond district. She was collecting deposits from multiple people and then delaying delivery. She only got caught because she did it to two people who happened to work toghether and they shared thier stories one day. Another elavorate ruse was used on a recently sold property. The scammer told this elaborate lie about hoaving just bought the house but getting the job offer of a lifetime and having to move out of state. That was why they couldn'd see the inside you see. "Just send me the deposit and rent and I'll send you the keys".
