Thank you Anita:
Thank you for giving us the address of the property.
The property at 1148 Glenn Avenue was built in 1998, 3,669 square feet, 6,600 lot size. No that does not sound like a townhouse.
Does the person who answers the telephone claim to be the owner of the property or does this person claim to be an agent for the owner?
If the person claims to be an agent for the owner ask this person for their DRE number. They must have a license from The State of California to act as an agent for the owner of the property. If this person gives you a DRE number, then verify that the number is for a valid and active real estate license.
I do not see this property listed for rent. This property was last listed for sale in 2011 and sold and closed escrow on March 17, 2011. The amount of the sale price was $1,645,000. I doubt that this property is for rent. I do not see any evidence that it is for rent. However one of the best ways to find out if the property really is for rent is to go out and knock on the door and talk to the person who answers the door.
I recommend that if necessary, go out to 1148 Glenn Avenue and knock on the door and ask the person who answers the door if the property is for rent. Show the person who answers the door a copy of the advertisement that you are responding to.
That is the best way to find out if the advertisement is real or not.
