• craigslist, word of mouth.
  • That's where I found my current one. Call and follow up. I've found that the people who get back to you first make the best landlords.
  • I think you will find that if you inform people around you of your search, you will have better luck. People know to keep an eye out for things that are not necessarily going to be advertised. Also, make sure you know what you want in an apartment. Draw up a rough budget and figure out exactly how much you can spend (for an approximation, your rent should be no more than 30-40% of your monthly income). Write down exactly what you're looking for - what kind of neighborhood, amenities, how many rooms, heating system, etc. It's a lengthy process, but if you plan it out properly you're likely to end up happier than if you just throw caution to the wind and jump on the first place you find.
  • Shop around, word of mouth or referrals, look in places you'd never expect...mainly, ask your friends.
