How To Find Rental Housing

Where should you look for rental housing?

  • Try the classified ads of newspapers. You’ll find the most ads on Sundays.
  • Look on bulletin boards at supermarkets and other stores.
  • Ask around. Organizations and churches in your area may be able to help.
  • Look for vacancy signs in windows.
  • Call rental services or look for them online. Keep in mind that these companies are usually paid by the landlord, so they’re not always looking out for your interests.
