Hello Kik Carlisle-fallon, If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment you are looking to achieve you can be emailed listings to study and compare. The rentals are very few in Auburn in the mls so you may want to inquire with local rental management companies.
Beware of the many rental and rent to own scams out there these days on all sites. The scams are on all of the rental listing sites except one that us agents/broker use such as mls, multiple listing service. I can verify whom you should be dealing with by checking the status of the address...
You should not give anyone any funds or personal information without confirming with a licensed agent/broker or management company to find out whom you should be dealing with and the status of any address of interest. There are rent to own but they require 10% down plus another 3% fee's.
You should study RENT vs BUY options as you may qualify to buy with minimum out of pocket expenses and pay less than rent in many cities. The are not many rentals in Auburn but start from $1,450 for 3bd 2ba single family home. The purchase in Auburn start from 220k for 4bd 3ba single family homes and is only $1,100 down with a minimum 580 fico score.
You may qualify to buy FHA with fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score and even 5% down conventional with NO Mortgage insurance (Lender paid MI). Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.
It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some blogs to study such as RENT vs BUY, Which loan is right for me, Down payment and closing costs hurdles and Pre-approval in minutes.

There are sometimes as that street has multi family units on it. My suggestion would be to drive by on occasion, as many landlords around here just put signs up in the front yard.
Generally in Auburn figure the rent about $1.00/sq foot ( 1000 sq foot home + $1000/month )... more
