A Spring Texas house listed for sale at $300,000 also available for rent at $900 a month. Does the monthly rent sound too good to be true? Then it probably is.
Recently a scam artist had copied the pictures and the description of one of listings and placed an ad for it for rent on Hotpads.com. The house was NOT for rent and if it was for rent it would NOT be for rent at a 1/3 of the market rental rate.
Unfortunately scam artists are not extinct. They are still out on the Interent spinning tales that unfortunately people still get caught in.
How can you as potential renter protect yourself from being scammed? The best way is to only search for rental properties on websites where the listing data comes directly from the Realtors, Brokers, or the local MLS. Websites that permit individuals to input listing data are prime targets for scam artists. You can safely search for all Spring Texas homes for sale on our website as our listing feed data comes directly from the our Houston MLS.
Remember …. If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

She took us through the process which we thought was daunting and at times frustrating. With her excellent local knowledge (including the area, the builder, the market, local school and tax system to name a few) and experience with building a new home (each steps that need to happen and what to look out for), we were able to find a place quickly and go through the building process smoothly. With the ability to grasp our needs and interests fairly quickly, Jill demonstrated strong representation of our interests, including negotiations on our behalf and recommending additional steps which builders would not typically do. Jill had a strong focus on customer service, not only being responsive and answering every questions in detail, but also proactively go extra miles to help us at every step along the way, including alerting us the things we need to do and watch for, helping us out in the design selection process (which very few agents would do) , walking us through the paper works and highlighting issues. It was our pleasure to know Jill and work with her in our new chapter of life. We are very happy with her excellent work and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. read less
