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.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
