In the past 6 months, 2 three-bed properties have been sold from the mls in that immediate area for lease:

15000 block of Eastwood- 1100 sq. ft- $675/month
15000 block of Faircrest- 1200 sq. ft.- $800/month

Both properties are brick and fairly large. You did not mention whether your home was brick or frame and the square footage- this makes a difference in desirability. Another issue is the property condition- is it painted well, updated kitchen/baths, etc.

Here are a few more questions:

1. Was the home listed? That's your best chance of getting the most exposure
2. Where else did you market online besides craigs? Craigs is best done with consistency everyday, but there are
3. Do you have local or street signs?

The newspaper is good, but can get expensive unless you order the package with the Internet listing for 7-30 days.

Remember, people start looking online first so reach them using multiple online methods- compliment your online with offline marketing.
