The Flip Listing Guarantee protects you against scams and falsely advertised listings. As long as you pay on our platform we will 100% guarantee the quality and veracity of our listings. 

How it Works:

Step 1: Pay rent to secure a room or apartment. 

Step 2: Your rent payment is held in escrow until the lease starts

Step 3: On the first day of your lease, get the keys and do a full walkthrough of the space to makes sure you are satisfied with it. If you are not then you can leave and your rent money will return to your account within 2 business days. We will assist you in finding another home.

Common Scams:

  • Fake listing scam: Someone asks for money off of the Flip website before showing you the apartment you think they are renting to you. They take the money and run, because they never actually owned or had access to the apartment. 
  • Advance fee scam: Someone offers to pay you or give you something if you pay them off of our website
  • Phishing scam: Someone sends an email or a link that looks like it’s from Flip or another trusted site. These messages are designed to trick you into providing confidential information such as passwords or other email addresses.
  • Misadvertised listing: Someone accepts your rent money and gives you access to a real apartment, but it is dirtier or in worse condition than was advertised.
