Stay away from Craigslist, while it is still good for many things, the real estate section is now full of scammers. I agree with several people here. Hire a real estate professional to market the listing for you. They can put it in the MLS and syndicate the listing to hundreds of websites much easier than the average person. It will save you a lot of time and money.

I suggest signing a contract with a REALTOR and have the REALTOR advertise it for you.

Agree with Hector. In addition to marketing, a Realtor can perform professional leasing services required in order to protect you in your lease application process, including but not limited to your lease agreement, an initial walk-through inspection as well as applicable important lease document preparation.

Hi Nancy,

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).

Hello Nancy,

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!

Hi Nancy,

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.

Best of luck,

May I suggest our interactive website This website can also be uploaded as a mobile version so you can see what's available on your smartphone including video tours of the houses, condos and apartments in which you have interest. This same interactive site allows you to apply online, assist you with our lease documents and get you moved in to your new home. Later you will have a secure place to pay your rent online and thereby never have a problem with late rent penalties. If you have a maintenance issue you can communicate the same way. We provide personal resident care with technological convenience.
