Default Seattle rentals

We are relocating to Seattle in a few months, and getting ready to check out the areas in a few weeks. My main focus will be the Eastside--Bellevue, Issaquah, Kirkland, and Mercer Island. Right now I am just worrying that I won't find the rental home that I want, as it seems the houses go pretty quickly. Do houses come on the market continously all year long, or is there a surge of rentals that come on the market in May, June, when companies are transferring execs? Any thoughts on this?

We've been scouring Seattle/Eastside rentals for months now and over summer there seem to have been a lot fewer available. I am hoping that when people realize their place is not going to sell this year, they'll put it up for rent.

We've had most joy with the listings on Craigslist. But Hotpads, Truila and Zillow have some too.

I can't speak for the eastside, but there are TONS of rentals in my neighborhood (Fremont) which includes apartments, houses and townhouses. A lot of people don't advertise, they just put up a sign (I know that's what my landlord does and he rents his out pretty quickly). So you might just try driving around the areas you are interested in.
