I do suggest posting your rental listing with a local property manager & get it in the MLS, so many people are using websites like Trulia & Realtor.com which gets their info fed to them from the local MLS boards. You will get the max amt of exposure working it in this fashion.
Shoot me an email directly if you want to talk about this some more, I don't look back on this same Trulia thread for answers posted after mine. I am not a property manager, I suggest you interview with a few or I can refer you to someone I feel is competent.

I would however, begin to strategize with real estate professionals or property managers and perform any rehab or clean-up work sooner than later. If there is any deferred maintenance that needs to be addressed, it will be better to take care of it now. Fresh paint and professional cleaning will be the last step in your make-ready process before showing the condo. Are you currently living in the condo? Will you offer it as furnished or unfurnished?
I can say the above with confidence because I have leased over 900 rentals in my own personal portfolio of properties and for Archstone Apartments (I was the General Manager for their 623-unit Marina del Rey property) just within the past four years. My seventeen years of experience in property management have served me well and I would be delighted to assist you in your efforts when you are ready.
