The best advice I can give you is something you may already be doing. Find an aggressive Realtor that exclusively deals with rental properties to help you with your search. You should work with the broker/ agent that is the king of the neighborhood or area you are searching in. Unfortunately inventory is down and there are quiet a few renters looking but I am confident you will find something if you put all your ducks in a row.
