Do what I did & search the classifieds in the Merced Sunstar. I rented my house from the owner, NOT a property management co. Gonella, Tinetti, doesn't matter. They take your money & run your credit BEFORE they will even let you look at the house! I even had a credit report that was run a week before, they wouldn't accept it. We all know that the more you run credit the worse it gets! The Gonella people went as far as telling me that neighbors wouldn't want someone like my husband living next door to them. Army & law enforcement. So apparently they like to rent to the bottom of the barrel. WATCH OUT!!! There are horror stories about the mgt. co. here. Won't prorate rent for a week, can't get deposit back, charges for normal wear & tear after several years. Find an owner, pay dbl the deposit if you have to, it'll save you a lot of hassle in the long run!
