Hi Karen,
I think this is a great and 'out of the box ' idea on your part. Can you tell me what area you are looking into? I have alot of folks that need 'alternative solutions'. The best way to find out about the rental market in a specific area would be to find an agent in that area and work directly with them, if they are local then they will in fact know the area better than anyone.

I think you just need to do things like you are doing here on Trulia.
I've had a lot of great contacts that were generated through Trulia, including numerous investors and potential renters. I also have some great lenders that I work with so the loans can happen easier and a number of fantastic, reputable builders that I also deal with on a regular basis.

In addition, you will want to ally yourself with a realtor(s) that have constant contact with first time home buyers or really just buyers in general. I have several listings and I work onsite at a number of communities so I do come in contact with many prospects both from the communities and from my listings. Buyers and renters are generated from all fo those. From the feedback I have received, the rental market looks hot but the buyer's market is getting hotter.

I agree with Scott that you should seek out the advise of agents in the area you are looking to guage how the rental market is. They can also assist you in finding the hidden deals as well as onfo on the properties coming on the market soon. A lot of foreclosed homes are in limbo waiting for deed corrections, evictions or them to be cleaned and priced. the top REO listing agents should be able to give the inside scoop on new listings. good luck with your investments.

You probably should have a face to face with several top agents in the areas you are interested in. Speaking from an agents perspective, I'd be wary of someone who makes the introduction you have on here. There are quite a few scams in my area with similar sounding approaches.

Good luck in your venture
