I think www.apartments.com and www.rent.net are the best. They list both houses and apts for rent, and include ads from local papers. Good luck!

Try Craigslist.org They have rental information for all areas of CT. Plus so much more great information.

this'll sound simplistic...call a real estate office, they'll have a handle on rentals in a particular area...with the RE market being slower than anticipated, someone'll help you. Note..the fee for finding a rental is paid to the agent by the person with the house for rent, not the renter...don't let anyone double dip...

I think Craigslist is a good place to check first, also the local papers... for the Groton area, check theday.com. You could also check shorelinetimes.com, courant.com, nhregister.com. Also, as a real estate agent, I recommend contacting a realtor, as they have access to all rental listings posted on the mls.

True, if the property is listed through the MLS. Otherwise, the renter might have to pay the agent if the ad/landlord doesn't state "brokers protected" or some version thereof. Connecticut is a buyer-agency state.

Since you are coming for the Military, I would suggest that you contact the Coast Guard Academy's housing office at 800-883-USCG and ask for Peter McDonald.
