I used Craigslist and PadMapper the most. I agree with the above poster that I ignored posts without a clear neighborhood or cross street listed. I also ignored posts without the price listed in the subject line and without pictures. When that wasn’t working out – I walked through the neighborhoods I’d like to live in and took down the phone number for every “for rent” sign I saw outside of buildings or posted in windows. Not sure if that is an option for you – but if you can put out a sign with a phone number or email that may increase your interest.
