not always. i moved 1600 miles without having seen the place outside of pictures and having no clue what the neighborhood was like.

i just don't want to do anything wrong. i don't want to get taken for a ride, i don't want the landlord/property owner to take advantage of us because we've never apartment shopped before, and i don't want them to try to pull any fast ones because we're new.

I didn't mean in general, I meant for their specific situation. Obviously when you move to a new city its totally different. They're looking for an aprtment in the same area they live in now.

My point was that an apartment listing on craigslist is no different than a listing you'd find in the newspaper, rental guide, realty office or any other traditional medium. As long as you can check the whole thing out, feel the landlord out, etc you can make an informed decision
