Hey thanks so uch for your question in regards to homes for rent in the Pensacola area! There is definitely a shortage of rental homes in the Pensacola area especially in the Downtown area and East Hill area.
Our company Realty Masters has over 45 rentals available as we are the largest property management company in the Pensacola area. Check our website http://www.PensacolaRealtyMasters.com and let us know if you are interested in any of our properties.
I would suggest being very cautious on Craigslist as we are seeing a lot of scams. :( Here's some more information about the craigslist scams and how you can protect yourself from them: http://realtymastersoffl.blogspot.com/2012/01/craigslist-beware-of-rental-home-scams.html
The best and most comprehensive website to search for Pensacola area rentals can be found online at http://www.PensacolaMLS.com Search Properties, and then change the search to show Rentals instead of Residential. That shows all the homes listed in the Pensacola area with real estate companies.
Good luck with your some search and let us know how we can assist you.
Thanks and have a great day,
