Looking for a roomate?

Looking for a roomate? Going through a Sept 1 move in? Trying to avoid the "finders fee"? Sure the local apartment listings and papers are useful, but the best I could find are the roomate wanted or apartment listings. Any suggestions on others? How would you conduct an interview in deciding to fill a vacant room with someone you don't know? Makes you want to just buy a house and be done with it, but is home buying/selection easier?
