This is a case where you or your agent should just get on the phone and start talking to people who are having trouble selling their homes. Sooner or later you will come across someone who will see you as a godsend.
You shouldn't have to much trouble finding a rent to own house in your area.
Just look for homeowners who need to sell or rent and ask them if they would be interested in letting you rent the home and then purchase it after 12-24 months.
There are some things you need to work out in the beginning before signing the lease and option to make sure that you have the best chance to purchase.
