Sally has given you some great ideas on how to find a rental property in your area. Working with a local agent who has access to the MLS is a good opportunity for you as the agent can provide you the most up to date information and do some of the leg work for you. And, perhaps the agent would be able to negotiate a better rental price for you since they know the market well.
Online; Craigslist.com is a terrific source for finding for rent by owner listings. I can also suggest: forrent.com and of course the Trulia site too.
