WHNT News 19 recently investigated the story of a woman who fell victim to a real estate scam. A fake ad claiming her house was up for rent was posted to Craigslist. The scammer, it appears, was trying to steal money from prospective renters… asking them to meet at odd locations to collect the cash.
So how can you be sure if a home you’re looking at is actually for rent, or if it’s for sale? An app from North Alabama REALTORS® may help. The mobile app works on all mobile devices across all mobile carriers.
Using GPS technology, consumers can search by address, city or zip code to see details for commercial property and homes for sale or rent in a specified area. Using the “Refine Search” feature lets users pinpoint a price range or property type as well as other specifics they may be looking for.
If a consumer has questions or wants a tour of the property, the “Call” feature within the app immediately and directly connects the consumer to the listing agent via email or cell phone.
The app can be found in all major app stores by searching for VALLEYMLS.
