Total scam! You pay for a list of rentals that may or may not be available. Most everything on their list in run down and in unsafe areas. You would be much better off going through a real estate agent or checking your local paper!
Rent Max is a scam – meaganwoodard must work for Rent Max, along with a couple of others here. This so-call rental company is a nightmare. Did you ever get that feeling deep inside when you realize you just made a big mistake? Just deal with these people and you'll know that sick feeling!!!!
Rent Max helped me out – I used Rent Max about a year ago to find a cheap place. They gave me a list of cheap rentals in the areas I was looking for. I found a cute little house with a yard for only $300/month. The landlord worked with me on the deposit, and I ened up staying there for the first two weeks without paying anything! I'm looking for a new place again, and I will definately use Rent Max again. My contract has expired with them, so I will have to pay the fee again. I think it's well worth it, though. They saved me a lot of time by providing me with the list of places in my price range so I didn't have to search. They are not a scam at all.
Thanks for saving me the trouble! – I want to thank those of you who posted your experiences with RentMax. I just called them this morning in response to an ad for a rental house that sounded too good to be true. The guy who answered the phone told me that that house had already been rented, but if I would come by their offices and pay $59 IN CASH, that they could find me several properties in my price range that meet all my needs. He of course wouldn't offer me any properties over the phone.
As others have stated, the guy on the phone sounded a little too slick and fast-talking, assuring me that they would help me find exactly what I was looking for.
I had tentatively agreed to come down there, but I ddin't like the idea of having to pay for a list of rental properties when most places list them for free in the paper or just about anywhere else. And in the past when I've called realty companies looking for an apartment I didn't have to pay any fee--they were happy to show me, in person, an available property.
So I decided to look online to see if they had a website, etc., when I found this page and these reviews.
I won't be wasting any money or time with these people.
Totally Unprofessional – I agree with the other comments about this place being a scam. They are both dishonest and unprofessional. This place should be forced out of business. They won't put anything in writing or provide you with a receipt. Furthermore, their lists are outdated and the properties look a "hot mess." Meaning roaches and mice.. I wouldn't recommend this place for animals. In addition, it is my personal opinion that this is a ruse for a drug dealing business. Just another example of how black men make themselves look bad. And yes I am black too! These people have no interest in the needs of the clients and you have to pay an extra $10.00 for internet access. WTF? Losers!
Rent Max is a JOKE!!! – Rent Max is a total scam! I saw an ad for a rental property in the paper. Called the number and got an " agent " for rent max. I asked him about the property and gave him detailed information on what my family and I were looking for. He said that they had exactly what I wanted, where i wanted, and for the price I wanted. I asked him for the info on the home and he explained that I would have to drive to their office, which is about 40 min from my home and pay them 59.$ for their services. So, I loaded my 3 kids in the car, drove there, signed their paper work, handed over my credit card and as soon as that was done I got 3 print offs of homes that were nothing that fit into my criteria. When I asked about the 1 specific home that I raced to their office for they had the audacity to tell me that the home had gotten rented 2 min after I had called them. I found that very hard to believe. Not only that but I also thing that it is pretty important info to explain to people that the houses they have on their " list " may no longer be available. Once I realized that I had been scammed, I asked for a refund of my 59$ because I had and have no intentions on using them.... EVER... Then, I was rudely informed that I would have to wait for 32 days and then call them for a refund and I would get a partial refund of my money but if I did not call on the 32nd day I would get none of my money back. This was all told to me by the front office manager who btw reeked of Marijuana and was the rudest and most unprofessional person that I have ever met. I told her that I thought it was really crappy how they charge someone for a service that they obviously are not able to provide correctly and as I was walking out the door she yelled "F****KING B***H"!! She did this in front of my 3 kids... After that I called the bank, stopped payment, disputed the charge, called her manager which was also a joke, called their cooperate manager - nothing there... So, no cooperation at all from anyone. I have filed against them with the BBB and will continue to let everyone know about their scamming business and very rude mannerisms to hopefully save someone else from the headache that I endured...! Rent Max is a scam with BS employees and employers!!!
Lost 62$ on BS – Several years back, found an ad in the paper. said Rent Max... kept looking. Found another just what I was looking for and was able to afford. Went to the place, handed over my money and got a list that was 15 pages long. What I wanted had "already been rented" yet they had plenty more. I was young, dumb, and willing to believe these people I gave my money to.
I would never do it again. First of all, of the 15 pages 4 lines were in my area, and of those four lines, only one in my price range. I went and looked at the place. Had I had a weaker stomach I would have gotten sick. It was not anything I would put rats and roaches in, not to mention humans. It was horrible.
On a hunch I went and looked at the other places. Homes that had people living in them. Nice places. I figured wth I may have had a bad bunch. So I went back and went to go get another list. It was the same as the first list. They then told me when I mentioned this that they have up to date listings on the internet. But that would cost me 15 dollars to change my contract.
And since I didn't call every day to get the new listings (I don't know about you, but I don't have time listening to stuff that doesn't pertain to me.) I didn't get my refund. That was the worst way to spend 62$.
I don't suggest Rent Max. I DO suggest going up your local Housing Authority, and get a list of the landlords/rental agencies in the area. These are people/places that have to pass inspection to have their places approved for Sect. 8. Their homes are more decent than the ones "provided" by Rent Max and have to be reasonable in price to be HUD approved.
RentMax Scam – I recently made the huge mistake of going to rentmax. I wish I had taken the time to research the company like I normally would have. But I found myself in a situation that was somewhat time sensitive. So I fell into the rentmax scam. I was drawn into the scam by calling about a rental add in the paper. The man on the phone said that not only was the property that I was calling about still available but he had many others in that range, and all I had to do was come in and sign up for this service. I soon found out that all of the listings were false or could be found on my own. All the properties that they post in the papers are fraudulent.. I have called about many of them, and of coarse they are never on my lists. They say you have to call there service number for listings that are listed in the paper, and when you call of coarse they are old or never existed in the first place. I cannot believe I fell into this scam. I am reporting them to every watchdog, news, and government agency in the country. I write this as a warning to others who hopefully will do what I neglected to do, and research these scam artists before giving them your hard earned money.
Rent Max Gits It Done! – I have used Rent Max for years now and All I have to do is give them a call and my houses are rented.
Thanks guys and gals, for a job well done!
Really Surprised... – I'm really surprised to see so many negative comments about Rent Max. I've used their service since they moved here years ago and I always find what I'm looking for. Paying them $59 a year sure beats not finding anything in the newspaper but high prices or slums. I have kids, and I don't want to live just anywhere. I don't want to be in the ghetto but I can't afford to pay $800 or more a month for most of the houses in the newspaper. As long as you do what they tell you to do you will save money, more than enough to pay them $59.
Some people just want everything done for them, and most of them want it for free. If you want a good house without going to a property management company or doing credit checks you should just go to Rent Max.
