I had a look at my last year's tax return...

The rental real estate loss is entered on the 1040 at line 17, which goes into figuring your income. The calculations come from Schedule E.

Everything about itemizing is on the next page around line 39, and comes from Schedule A.

So I think you would benefit from both: the standard deduction and the rental loss.
