Sorry to say, we really can't help you. Keep trying the landlord/rental agent . . . phone or email, not just text, unless that's what he indicated he preferred. If you continue to get no response, that's a good sign it's been rented.
BTW, an $800/mo. rental is extremely low for a house (maybe for a room in a larger home, but not a whole house). This may be an example of a scam where a person claims to have a home for rent, collects a deposit, then disappears. Be careful when making contacts like this. Good luck.... more
If you are looking for a home to rent, try craigslist. If you want to buy a home, you can look at homes in Morro Bay and the entire Central Coast in Real Time on my web site at http://www.dnorwood.com/MORROBAY.aspx
Today, buying a home costs less than renting because interest rates are low and prices of homes are very low. There are programs that offer first time home buyers the option to put as little down as $1,000.00 with good credit. If you are interested, please give me a call.
