So what is your question????
Perhaps to a lesser degree but our area is subject to rental scams.
The situation is particularly acute as good rentals are scarce and
difficult to find.......and rental rates are on the rise.
Other than through established property management companies
in our area, a renter should be VERY careful in using the internet
to secure a rental.... the internet is full of rental scams and even
direct in person contact with a "landlord" is no guarantee against
As always, I would suggest any potential renter contact one of our
established rental agencies, Crown, Hedgerow, etc. to secure a
rental.... otherwise caveat emptor..
