Unfortunately for you the lisited rental price of the rental that you wish to rent does not have to be honored by the landlord or his/her agent. If you want the $890 per month listed rent as opposed to the $915 price, I suggest that you negotiate the price downward to your liking mentioning the $890 monthly listing.
