CraigsList. Many reputable Land Lords, like myself use it as their sole source of advertising. Yes, you must always be aware of possible scams but then again that is something you always need to be aware of. Yes, all other sources noted by others should also be considered but do not be afraid of CraigsList..

Friends and co-workers are a good place to start. The internet has sites that offer reviews of rental properties. The local newspapers and their internet sites. Gps mapping in our area gives you a good view of the area the apartments located in and travel routes to work, shopping, etc.

Beware of scams on CraigsList... My advice is contact a local Realtor to help find you a place. Too much is going on in this market and the best way to protect yourself is to work with a professional.. You don't want to move in to your new place, then in a month get a notice on the door the property was foreclosed on...

CraigsList as many Land Lords will go there first as it is free. Also contact local real estate offices as many manage rental properties for their clients. How soon, how many rooms, price range, etc.

Check with local realty offices for available rentals, check local print media for by owner rentals, word of mouth, etc.
