There are homes for rent in these communities; however, they don't come cheap. You can get a mortgage for less than some of the rents there. Have you attempted to get prequalified for a mortgage first? I started in mortgage, unlike most REALTORS. If you want to discuss this as an option first give me a call or you can call Tammi Lewis with First Mariner Bank. http://www.findhousesdcmetro.com/mortgage-contacts.asp
Good luck and either way, I'm honored to assist.
