Food for thought.
An agent with your best interest in mind is probably a safer choice so that you are fully protected. Many things can go wrong when leasing a home and a properly structured lease is very important. I also believe utilizing the MLS can give you exposure to a different demographic of renters, but not always.
Good luck and please don't hesitate to contact me directly should you have any other questions or concerns.

You absolutely can do this yourself. Staples or Office Depot should have some forms for you to use. You can require the potential tenants to provide the credit reports (ask for originals). It is just a matter of how much time you have!
All my best,
If you have rented your home before and are familiar with the process, using craigslist and westside rentals is the way to go. However, if you have never done so, it maybe worth it to find a professional that can lease your home - so you find the best tenant who will love your home.
