Real Rentals????

Asked by Phil Montez, 90056 Wed Mar 20, 2013

EVERY house I've inquired about was a fake. All of them were on a Christian Crusade,keys with them, wife urging to rent. The only honest information I got was from apts. Trulia doesnt gave a better way to filter thru obvious fraud????

Sorry...nope. Anyone can post a property for rent on any site...except the MLS. On the MLS you have to be an agent to post, paying dues, and have a listing agreement before you can post.

There is a lot of fraud out there and it is good for you to be aware of it. The "too good to be true" posts, are usually fraud.

Good luck!

Work with a professional Agent! Trulia does not filter.

I understand the frustration believe me, the best advise I can give you is have an agent in the area you want to rent in help you find a place.

Good luck.

I have heard numerous complaints about Westside Rentals as well...they take your money and no one updates the postings and landlords don't call you back. Save your money.

Try or Craigslist as I heard lots of complains on trulia regarding outdated/incorrect/misleading rental listings.

I don't think trulia actually check every listing.

Hope this info will help you!
