I would say the best place to look for an owner would be interested in selling a home with owner financing is by checking with current owners of single family rental properties either by:
1. Calling on properties for rent individually. (Talk to the owner, not the rental management company.)
2. Finding real estate investment clubs in your area with members who may be interested in selling with owner financing.
You may be able to find an owner who wants the benefit of monthly payments without having to manage tenants in the same way they would have to with a rental.
Best of luck,

BUT, if you specifically want this maybe because you can't qualify for a loan right now, there are ways to find these properties. Have your realtor do a search for properties that are both for sale and lease. Especially ones that have been on the market for over a month. These will be good option candidates. Also there is a specific field in our MLS that specifies purchase option, but not everyone checks it.
For the owner financing, there is a searchable field for this as well and this should be easy to find. Just run a search for properties that are offering owner financing.
If you don't have a realtor already please contact me and I will be happy to assist.
