We have a good storefront and recently put out a sandwich board letting people know we do rentals. Our renter walk-in traffic has increased considerably.

use them all simultaneous. for a lot of them there is no cost. refresh postings on craigslist every 2 days and do what ever is necessary on the other websites to keep it looking fresh ie. change photos, headlines etc.. Keep changing text around so prospective tanants think it's a different listing - what matters to you most may not matter to them most and vice versa

I've had luck with http://www.corkin.com as far as finding tenants that are more reliable. It's like a craigs list.

The MLS is the best in my opinion. I am hesitant to use Craigslist anymore, there has been alot of negative issues regarding Craigslist.

Just to add one more to the mix.....I have used backpage.com which is similiar to craigslist.
