Precautions we ask you to take.

Lease and payments must be made in contract with Invitation Homes. If anyone is trying to convince you otherwise, it is a scam.

Lease applications can only be submitted through InvitationHomes.com or with the help of a licensed leasing agent. We do not lease homes through Craigslist or other classified advertising services. Approved listings can be found on InvitationHomes.com , Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, Hotpads, Rentals.com, Apartment List, Apartments.com, and Zumper.

Signs of a scam

Abnormally high security deposits

No background checks required

Eager requests for cash or wire payments may include an emotional plea

Deals "too good to be true"

Bad grammar or lack of photographs in fraudulent ads

Three quick steps if you find yourself faced with a rental scam:

1. Please report the scam to local law enforcement.

2. Inform the website where you found the fraudulent ad.

3. Inform Invitation Homes by submitting a Contact Us Form.
