The Catch: Want to Host An Open House?


Our first submission to the tipline! Excellent. The Catch features everything-looks-good-except listings.

What/Where: $1475 2 bedroom 2 Bathroom house in Rose Park area of Long Beach.
Looks Good, Right?: "Hardwood Floors. Beautiful tile work in 2nd bathroom. Cute picket fence yard in front. Large back yard (shared with 2 studio units). Well behaved pet ok with extra deposit."
The Catch: Don't unpack too quickly...the house is currently for sale, and the seller has a big bonus in mind for his tenant once it sells."I have put this house up on the market, but it may take a while to sell--anywhere between 3 and 12 months. I'm looking for someone who not only won't mind a month-to-month rental agreement, but who will actively help me sell it, for example, by allowing me to show the house one or twice on the weekend. As compensation, I will give you $100 on the day the sale closes. If this works for you, please read on..." Try not to spend it all in one place.
