As a long-time Riverside resident, I can tell you that there are quite a few vintage Spanish-style homes here and many are for sale in the Inland Empire. Unfortunately, unless you have a big down payment, there are few that you could buy or rent for $850-950. The first step for you is to contact a local lender and talk to them about what the payment would look like given your down payment and FICO score. Be sure to ask about whether there is any down payment or closing cost assistance programs that might be eligible.
Good luck, Alicia!
