I think you have received three great answers already from the previous local agents. Craigslist will probably be your best bet in addition to an ad in the Middletown Press or the Town Times. I think they are all correct, an experienced agent will alleviate a lot of the stress associated with the paperwork and legailty issues you may encounter. Another great resource that will require some extra effort from you but may reap great rewards is to post your condo with the best pictures you have at Wesleyn College and the Bookstore. You are in a college town hub and school is about to start. Also post in any local business where they have a bulletin board and they allow free postings. Many markets and grocery stores have one.
Good luck !

Well, first let me tell you that a lot of folks want to try it themselves and I commend you. Try Craigâ€™s list and most certainly your local paper. If it becomes stressful then give a real estate agent a call to see what they can do for you in the way of advertising and handling all of the paperwork. For rental property the commission is one months rent, not bad for alleviating the stress and running around. We at Linda's team will advertise your property in 5 print adds ( newspapers), we use 9 on line venues, visual tours, credit checks, all legal paperwork to protect you, and much more. Just let me know if we can help you!
Best of Luck!
Craigs List, Zillow offer you the forum to list your rental. However, if this is not something you have done before I would recommend you speak to a local Realtor who can also put your rental on the MLS as well as the aforementioned sites. The screening process, credit checks etc can take up quite a bit of your time and having someone who knows the laws and the process can be well worth the fee in the stress and time it saves you.
