Here's a blog I wrote on how to find a rent-to-own home: http://bit.ly/findaleaseoption
I did a quick search of the area on Craigslist and came up with some possibilities. Here's one example--it's right at the Nevada border: http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/reo/2481078156.html -- a contract for deed on a 3 bedroom manufactured home for $21,000. There are plenty of homes like that out there.
Again, read my blog. That'll help.
