If you looking for a bigger property or a commercial property - I think it's best to your professional and licensed realtor.
Westside rentals will give you some of the properties available for lease. You should consider working with a real estate agent. The person offering the property for rent pays for the agent's fee so its free to use an agent.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I would be happy to provide you with a list of available rentals that fit your criteria.
MUST READ IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT SIGNING UP
Several Friends of mine used to work at Westsiderentals.
They didn't like working there because it was an unethical place to work, however the bonus incentives were irresistible.
Westsiderentals payed their employees 25 dollar bonuses to get their friends and/or clients to write them good reviews on yelp. The employee received 25 dollars and their friend or client would receive a 25 dollar Amazon Gift Card for writing the review. The only way to qualify for the "yelp bonus" is if the review included the employee's name in it, so they knew who to pay the bonus to.
For instance, if you see a review that says "i went in...........and so and so was so helpful.........." then so and so would get the bonus and the person who wrote the review would get a "bonus" also. The majority of the time, the person who wrote the review is a friend of the person they wrote the review about.
This is just one of many unethical things westsiderentals does.
ALSO, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEIR LISTINGS CAN BE FOUND ON FREE WEBSITES.
no need to spend the 60 dollars on a membership. treat yourself to something nice with the money you saved by avoiding a scam :)
For more sophisticated properties, you should work with an agent.

the short answer is yes. they have the majority of what's available because it costs nothing to advertise properties on their site. anyone can list their property on that site for free, including Realtor's. in addition to that you should consult and work with a local Realtor who's familiar and knowledgeable about the neighborhoods and perhaps some off market (or pocket) listings that may be coming on the market soon thereby not having to compete. if its a high-end property then a Realtor should definitely be your first choice. call me if you have any questions.
have a great afternoon,
