Post Best source of rental apartments 
Hi all,

My husband and I would like to move to Forest Hills and rent a two-bedroom apartment. What is the most common way to look for rentals these days? If I go to realtors web sites I see very expensive listings and I know I will have to pay a fee. If I go to Craig's list--I don't see very much. Is there a particular "Penny saver" type newspaper that has a lot of pertinent listings? Is there a particular real estate forum that lists a lot of rentals? When I lived in Long Beach, I could depend on New York Newsday and they have a very active real estate web site with lots of listings. But I can't seem to find the equivalent for Forest Hills. Help and thanks!

Italy lover

It's hard because nothing is centralized.

craigslist is your best bet. or call a management company. they rent without fees usually.
maybe these guys? I don't know if they charge a fee tho

Sometimes rentals are hidden in sites that show property for sale. You can find some gems because they're tucked away and other people don't see them. That's how I found my place. I got a great deal because there wasn't a lot of competition to nab it.
