    Default house rental agencies

    Hello forum! 2014 will be my second year attending the festival. Unfortunately the friends who did all the organizing last year are not coming this year And again unfortunately, I have waited a bit too late to book a house... So we are starting the search for a 6 to 8 person house, walking distance or biking distance to the festival. I started on vrbo, and got a reply from a booking agency; "Desert Vip". Does anyone have experience renting through this agency? They offer a shuttle service from La Quinta homes, which sounds great. But I got scammed once last year and am determined not to let it happen again. Any comments, tips or feed back would be great!!

    Nothing spells SCAM like "house rental agenices".

    Yeah I am a bit hesitant. But because I've waited so long, this agency may be one of my only options. I'll keep checking vrbo for something privately rented. Is there anything I can look for to verify the legitimacy of this agency? If I can pay through visa, am I good?

    VRBO will differ from property to property. Some are handled by owners, some by property management companies, some by real estate agents. Generally, if it is a legitimate agency, they will have you sign a contract (most likely a California Association of Realtors lease form, or something of similar ilk) that will specify payment deadlines, generally with an initial deposit of some amount due within X amount of days of signing the lease.

    That's how we got our house this year, but we had ours locked down several months ago...walking distance homes for Week 1 may already be pretty limited.

    Legit agencies will have a number you can call, an office you can visit, a website, yelp reviews, etc. Google is your friend.

    My internet search hasn't yielded anything relevant. Nothing on google, yelp, no company website. The properties are viewable only on you tube, and there are no comments... Sounds suspicious. But the agency does have rental agreements, credit card payments, and deposits. I'm not sure... I think I'll keep looking for something in Indian Palms rented by the owner. This agency seems to only have properties in La Quinta anyways.
