I've been a landlord for 4 years now. It's great with good renters, the trick is to weed out the bad applicants. Remember it's your investment you can not rent out to people you don't think will be a good fit. X2 on credit and criminal background checks. It's only $40-50 online and will cover your backside. I've just used craigslist to advertise and will get all kinds of responses. The biggest thing is to change your mindset. Your rental is no longer your house. People generally won't treat it as nice as you did. If you make this shift your stress level won't be as high. My first renters I had, I nit picked everything. And all's it did was stress me out.
