Craigslist is a great tool for finding tenants. As others have mentioned, just beware of scams that exist too. But I have had great success using Craigslist for finding tenants for my properties and my clients' properties.

Good luck,

Craigslist has been a very valuable tool for all of my rentals. It's free, user friendly and has a tremendous following. However, be very careful about monitoring your add as there are several scams that exploit many rental listings.

Does your lease allow you to sublease?

Try a nearby college, often they have classifieds online you can post your room on. Perhaps some girl will want to store her shoes there. : )

Be careful with Craig's List. Be prepared to do your do diligence. Don't cut corners on credit and background checks. We had a very nice couple come and view our home and then found out very serious derogatory activities in their past. That in itself is not so bad but not sharing it up front shows deception. Craigs list has lots of people preying on others. Just be wise. I am hiring a reputable real estate company to find a tenant as criminals generally stay away from agencies that do the proper checks. I was told this but I thought, how hard can it be. I don't need that stress. I want a more qualified renter not someone looking for a deal or to scam me.
For the forms I like ezlandlordforms.com has all the laws by state too.

craigslist by far is the number 1 option, then use an online site to get a lease with your state's disclosure forms
