You can have your home placed on the local MLS for a flat fee (without having to pay a commission to have an agent provide full representation for you) by googling 'flat-fee MLS'. Placing your home on the MLS allows you to offer a commission (either % or $ amount) to real estate agents who are assisting renters in finding a property. In addition, the MLS listing will get sent out to the major real estate websites. Be sure to shop around for prices (most of the services are the same, but everyone charges different amounts).

Here are some places/sites that I'd encourage you to use if you are tying to rent it on your own: Craigslist (but be prepared to get responses that may be scams), Backpage, Trulia, Zillow, SignonSanDiego, bulletin boards in your complex, local newspaper, San Diego Union Tribune, any nearby clubs
If you elect to use a professional, they will be able to put on the MLS and also syndicate it to a plethora of sites. Also, that agent should put it on San Diego Association of Realtors, as well as promoting to every agent in their company, along with all the other agents in the area.
Hope this helps!

When looking for rentals or to rent properties, your best bet is Craigslist. 85% to 95% of all rentals leased in San Diego County are found using Craigslist. It is used to advertise rentals by owners, property management companies and agents alike.
