No one should EVER pay anyone upfront fees to help sell their house. I'm assuming your friend is trying to avoid foreclosure? Have your friend contact a Real Estate agent for assistance asap.
They are SLOW to pay until you start to complain. They still owe me money. We were completing 30-40 BPOs for them per month at 40.00 per BPO and 150.00 per commercial it adds up. Another colleague in my office was owed over 10K. I don't think they are in financial trouble in as much they just don't pay. I know they laid off quite a few people a short while ago. Specifically someone I used to work with a lot.... more
Some "friend" you have. If they are just a friend who is visiting, that will not leave and is not a tenant, what is to stop you from changing the locks and packing their things for them?

You didn't post a link to the property but the very fact you are questioning it leads me to believe that it is a scam.
I would suggest that you DO NOT give this individual any money or personal info.
Read my blog titled 'Could it be a Rental Scam?' for some helpful advice.
Trulia also allows you to 'FLAG' a listing so it will be reviewed & if found to be fraudulent, it will be removed from the site.
Good luck.... more
Hi - This is something I'm used to being asked by clients. First, is are you planning on handling all property issues which may arise or are you planning on having a property management team come in to assist you?
By working with a real estate agent on finding a tenant, the agent can help you with the paperwork process. I'm based here in LA and happy to discuss this further with you.
Feel free to look on my trulia profile and call me :-)

Absolutely not! Highest offer does not mean best terms. Is the buyer pre-qualified or pre-approved, or even better is it a cash buyer who doesn't need to obtain a loan. There are many variables to consider. Not just price. Your local real estate agent should be able to guide you through the variables of an offer.... more

Seems pretty big to be renting. It would be cheaper to buy. Have you thought of that?
