Yes there is a scam out there where they pretend to have homes for rent. It is very common, they collect first and last month's rent and are gone.

I would suggest you work with a local Realtor. Your Realtor can check public records and property profiles from a title company at no cost to you. Then have the owner(s) provide photo ID to verify their name(s). If the mailing addresses or the names on the public records don't match, then you may be dealing with fraud. ... more

There may be a few other factors that affected the bank rejection. Which auction did you go through? What is the address of the property you "won" and what was your winning bid amount? So I can check in my database any transactions taking place on it - there is a chance your broker may very well be wanting it for themself. ... more

Hi Bruce,

Since you are in the property management field you probably know a real estate agent or two. Reach out to those contacts to find out which agent you would be comfortable listing your home with.
You can also find out a rough estimate of your current's home value here:!whats-my-home-value/cvqy

I hope this helps.

Why don't you work with an agent that you can trust that will protect your interests instead of working with selling agent who is protecting seller's interest?

If we have a contingency like this, typically when could we start the escrow? Immediately after accepted offer
What's the reasonable time that we should give to the seller to find the new home? Whatever you choose, but make sure you write it clearly in the contract.
Also can the seller back out the deal if he could not find a new home after we have have paid the deposit already? Yes, if within the contract terms. Your deposit will be returned.

Well I guess technically, you don't. However, if they are being given to you by the HOA through their agent, they would be committing fraud if they were giving you something that is not current.
If I were you you I would be more worried about getting a current HOA budget. See if they are solvent and if they are carrying a future Capital expenditure budget for Roof, exterior painting and other possible liabilities of this sort. Depending on the age of the buildings, these expenses will be necessary in the future and if there is no capital fund, then the expense will become a special assessment to all residents.
