I'm leaning toward a realtor because I don't know all of the things that I need to do in order to rent out our house.

Any advice or experience stories are welcome.

By the way, it's a fabulous 3 bedroom/2 1/2 bath townhome in a great family friendly neighborhood. Email me if interested.
I would definitely recommend Craigslist and rent.com. Maybe even a local ad in the paper. A realtor and the MLS is another tool, so use it but more than likely you will not find your tenant that way.

Good luck!

Lightbulb Landlord via social networks

I would try Hotpads.com, a map-based search engine for real estate. Nowadays Zillow.com offers both rental and sale estimates of real estate properties.

Has anyone tried renting via social networks, such as Facebook.com and LinkedIn.com? A quick online search reveals Realtown.com and ActiveRain.com, neither of which seem to be widely used social networks.
