Hi! Advertise on Craigslist.com and have their credit checked:)

I've used Craigslist and have had better results renting from there than with people I know. You can download rental agreements and perform credit checks on line.

I have done it. This time I have not put in an email address in the ad so I haven't gotten any spam from out of the country. I'm glad it was successful for you. Wish me luck

Postlets.com is wonderful! We charged a $50 app fee to run the credit check and I called the last 3 places our renter lived! She is wonderful.

I am so flabbergasted by the folks that want help to save money or want a nice, clean, quiet place to live! It is unbelievable how folks take care of the owner/roommates things.

I am very happy with my tenants, I did post on Craigslist but my tenants drove by my home and saw the for rent. Post in the local restaurants. Also is your home furnished for many people do come with their own furnishings. So maybe you should remove the furniture. Also what is your rent and deposit.
