Real Estate Scam Involving Foreclosures, Short Sales & Vacant Homes For Sale
Here's a recent "Scam Alert"sent out by ARMLS®. Realtors® and anybody who owns a vacant home should beware:
So sellers - keep an eye on your vacant homes and/or ask your neighbors to watch for suspicious activity. Realtors® - check your vacant listings. And renters - verify the owner/history of the property you're renting, and check out your potential landlord!

I read in one place, a person from church started renting out vacant homes in Atlanta that were for sale!

Sheez People will try anything for a few buck! I feel sorry for that poor woman and her children. Just pisses me off really! I wonder exactly when this will start happening here in the Bay Area (Cali). I have an associate that bought a rental in Gilbert. I will have to send her here to read your blog. It will be informative for her.

I have actually seen some for rent signs in front of pending short sale listings. Now we know why! Good info to pass along to our clients that move out before the short sale is complete.

It always amazes me how so much effort can be spent doing illegal things since this same energy could be focused towards creating something that society as a whole can actually benefit from.

This is just heartbreaking. I simply cannot wrap my mind around what is going on here in Arizona with the housing market and this is just one more thing.

Great article! And as a landlord and Realtor this is definitely happening.

In these times, people should be very careful about who they make deals with. A lot of people are out to take advantage of people who don't know any better, especially during these hard times.
