Before renting from a private owner vs. an apartment complex, Please click on my photo & read my 2 recent blog postings called RED FLAGS - RENTAL SCAMS - PUBLIC BEWARE. Reading this will aid you on your quest to NOT get scammed & find a good rental property.
Also Be VERY VERY CAREFUL with sublet.com or subletting in general. Subletting means you will NOT be renting FROM the Legal Owner, but from "some person" who May or May not actually have a valid lease with the legal owner.
