How do you know?
1. they give you some story (maybe even a sob story) about why they can't show you the home in person.....they claim they are out of the area, out of state................... out of this world!
2. they ask you to fill out a "lease" application with lots of personal information
3. they ask you to WIRE money for keys! DON'T do it!
Bottom line - the rent amount may/will seem too good to be true...........that's because it isn't true!
Understand that the6y often use real listings - maybe active or expired listings.;they "hijack" the photos and make them look like legitimate listings............
When in doubt, ask for proof of ownership, and to see the home in person!
Ask an agent to check it out for you.
