As Lottie already stated, craigslist.org is a good place to check several times a day because rentals are scarce and go quickly.
Although my main career focus is listing and selling real estate I do occasionally have rental listings and represent renters in leases.
If you are interested, I can set you up at no charge on the multiple listing service's automated email system. It will deliver rental listings with your desired criteria as soon as they come on the market. If you find something you're interested in , i can show you it to you, write and negotiate the offer for you. There is no cost to you for this service. My commission is paid by the seller for listings in the MLS.
The most important thing for owners of rental property is a tenant's credit report. Next is income. Then job and references. If you have rented before you may be aware of all of this.
If this service is something that you would like to discuss further, please call me at (650) 454-7787 or email me at RSVP2Robin@gmail.com.
Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.
