Oh, I am sure you're being scammed!

if the price sounds too good to be's a scam

If they ask you to wire money's a scam

if they give you some story about being out of the state or country (like London!!).....and they can't show you the's a scam

NEVER wire money.......never share personal information........

Bottom line............ask any local agent to verify this home is still listed for rent.....and confirm the facts and list price!

Best wishes.......

Hey Paul, I have some friends who live in Grant's Pass. Their backyard is the Rogue River. Beautiful country. Give me a call and I will refer you to some property management companies who might be able to help you. Also, I have an investor who has 3 properties in escrow and once they close, he will be looking for tenants. Rentals are in fairly short supply right now due to the number of home owners losing their homes to short sales and foreclosures so it helps to have someone helping you before you get here. My # is 661-747-7763. Thanks. Dee Oliver Realtor - RE/MAX MAGIC ... more

Don Tepper answered:
Well, if you're living there, that removes one aspect of a possible scam.

However, if the question is whether the money is going to the owner . . . not necessarily, even if it's legitimate. It's easy enough to determine who owns the house and where he/she lives. The tax assessor for Bakersfield can answer that question. Often, the money would be going directly to the owner. But if the owner is using a management company to handle the rental, your money would be going to the management company.

What makes you think it might be a scam?

Robert D Hughes answered:
Heidiho, in my experience everything is negotiable.Some pay on the gross others on the Net. All depends on what is agreed upon by the parties involved. Variable rates adjusting down are also common on 5+ year NNN leases. Speak with your representative to get a clear understanding on the payment structure.

Happy New Year and good luck,

Ron Thomas answered:
I have heard similar stories lately; my stepson is going thru this in Missouri: If you are living there RENT FREE, you will have to understand the problems of the new and the old owners. Put everything that you can into a storage unit, particularly valuables. Understand that you are living one day at a time. Save every penny that you can; no pizza, no games, no movies, no new shoes. You know it's coming; prepare for it. ... more

Hello Evan,

I believe those are called the "Vintage Apartments", but I don't see any reference to them on Trulia.

Hope that helps.

Thank you,
