    So Ive decided that I need to move to San Francisco and away from my parents, however everywhere I reply to I do not get a response back, at all. I have been applying for the past two weeks. Does anyone know of placed to look for rent other than craigslist?

    I've always had my best luck walking into real estate companies that have rental properties.

    ha ha - He said besides Craigslist!

    I search the internet for rental properties first. Then I drive around and look at the ones that appear nice and/or have good reviews in person. If you're looking for a room/apartment/house instead of a complex, you might want to drive around neighborhoods you like and just look for "For Rent" signs.

    Thats good and all but I also need to find roommates, which is very hard. Is there a good site or anything like that?

    I had great luck with that site when I used to room with others.

    Google "roommate finder" and a ton of sites will come up. I've never personally used any of them, but you might want to check them out and see if any of them interest you.
