You are near Ft Bragg, which means you could potentially get some of our wonderful men and women who are returning from Afghanistan and Iraq (welcome back to them)<br/>I would contact a local <a href="http://www.zillow.com/directory/real-estate-agents/">realtor</a>, if you dont have one, I can refer you or pull down the professionals tab at the top here on Zillow. Put it on Zillow and also put it on Craigs List (be very careful on that site or any site for that matter) You want first last and security, do a credit and criminal check. Talk to their current landlord, etc. Put up posters in grocery stores etc....see if there is a military board you can post this to also.<br/>Best of luck to you.
