How to Find a New Santa Monica Apartment on Craigslist


Hunting for an apartment? Try Craigslist, where people post and check out free classified ads for locations around the world.
Craigslist has “for rent” ads from private landlords, so you can check out local listings for the place you are moving to
without even getting out of your chair.


Things You’ll Need:

  • Internet access
  • Computer
  • Craigslist account
  1. 1

    Get online. Visit the Craigslist Web site (see link below).

  2. 2

    Use the lists of cities, states and countries to guide your search. Find the location you are moving to and click on it.

  3. 3

    Look for the “Housing” section of the page and click on the type of property you want to rent. You can also hunt for sublet dwellings, if that’s what you need.

  4. 4

    Screen results for your chosen location based on minimum and maximum rent, pets, number of bedrooms or whether the listing has any images attached to the ad.

  5. 5

    Listings are presented with the most recent postings appearing first. Each underlined posting title is followed by the specific location in parentheses.

  6. 6

    Click on a posting title to see the full description of the apartment. The description also provides an email contact for the landlord or current tenant if you would like more information.

  7. 7

    Round up a few of the best apartments for rent and arrange for viewing times.
