  • The newspaper, maybe look up the rental agencies in that area, or look online at the chamber of commerce for that city?

  • The best really is to just drive around. Thats what I did; drove around looking for "For rent" signs and taking down the phone number and address of the house then making a lot of calls to see if it was what I was looking for. Good luck!

  • My first thought was to go to the grocery store or really any other store and look at the magazine stands outside near the newspaper rack for Renter's Digest or other publications like it. They are free. These stands are usually located just at the front door or just inside the front door.

  • call a realtor in the area you want. Ask them to email you a list of rental homes in the price range you are looking for. You can narrow it down by bedrooms/baths, schools, neighborhoods, etc.
