How familiar are you with "Rent to Own" or "Seller Financing" situations? This is not very common these days, since we are now in a pretty hot seller's market. Most sellers want to SELL, not rent to a qualified buyer. Rent to own was never a good option for buyers. It was primarily an option for buyers who couldn't qualify for a normal mortgage and for sellers who were desperate to sell.
The for sale listings you see here on Trulia are not up to date. And the for rent listings are full of scams. I'd be happy to refer you to an agent in the Co Springs area.

This is a tough question to answer! There are many areas in town which are very safe! You can look at the Colorado Springs Police Dept website to get some ideas on police activity in areas of town. (http://www.springsgov.com/Page.aspx?NavID=208)
Again, there are lots of areas of town that are family oriented. I would say that Colorado Springs in general is very family focused. The cost of living is higher in certain areas, such as the Broadmoor, Pine Creek, Peregrine, etc. You can find good affordable housing in almost any area, depending on your needs. You will need a good Realtor that knows the areas to help you find the right place. Let me know if I can help and good luck in your search!... more
It may depend on how the home is rented. If it is being managed by a company, they may have strict standards that they use to qualify rental applicants. If the owner is managing the property, and you can provide some solid references, you may be able to rent with them.
The best place to look online is hotpads there are a lot of rentals in that price range with big yards. Fountain valley Colorado is down the highway from Colorado springs. I relocating also with to mature dogs but just myself and them. Good Luck d.olette... more

It can be difficult, but if you keep trying and are honest about the felonies, you will find a place. Craigslist has lots of homes for rent, many of them by personal owners. That may be your best bet. Good luck!... more
