We dont have any well to do relatives to cosign in the area. I think i might need a private renter who can help us out. Any advise?

Santa Barbara is different than most areas in that a lot, if not most, rentals are rented directly by the owners. The best site go to is http://www.craigslist.com. The reason is that almost all rental companies put there rentals on here and almost every owner does as well. Please be careful as there can be a lot of scams on craigslist. If it is to good to be true then it is probably a scam. Happy House Hunting!

I would suggest you try the regular rental sites:

http://www.craigslist.com
http://www.apartments.com
http://www.trulia.com (Rentals Section)
http://www.zillow.com (Rentals Section)
http://www.realtor.com (Rentals Section)

Between all of those, you will get a very clear picture if you can find what you are looking for. Good luck!
