When my son was renting out an apt. in his Metairie house, he did not advertise except for a sign in the yard. He did not want to field tons of calls from people who were just curious, couldn't afford it, couldn't read what the ad said about # of bedrooms, etc. Driving around is a time-honored way in many cities of finding a rental. Doesn't help you much, sorry to say.

When you post your own "Housing Wanted" ad on Craigslist, it helps to be specific. Even if you find something on Craigslist, you need to protect yourself. Don't send anyone money or sign anything until you have had a chance to see the place in person.

No matter what, you're just going to have to come down here and do the driving around thing. There's really no way around it for a newcomer to the city.
