Your best bet is searching Craigslist. Also driving around the specific areas you want to live and looking for "for rent" signs can be a good way to find the very best rental deals.

While I home you find a lead here, please remember that this is not a rental site; I suggest you look at the room for rent section of craigslist...there is an area that is specifically designed for what you want...and craigslist ads tend to be more up to date.

Good luck.

forget the dogs - the real issue is...........rent to own is not a good idea, in general, as it strongly favors the owner/seller.

Most sellers who want to sell and can sell, sell now, not later.

You will be expected to give an upfront NON-REFUNDABLE deposit, and pay rent over and above the normal rent.
Only that extra rent will be applied to the purchase, but it will also be lost if you do not buy the home for ANY reason.
So, if you do not qualify for a loan now, you better be sure you will qualify at the end of the lease or risk losing your money.

My advice is to rent while working on whatever it is that is keeping you from buying a home in the normal manner. Buy when you're financially ready to do so.....another plus will be that you will have a full selection of homes from which to choose.

Rent to own is not a good idea with or without dogs!

Good luck

Absolutely however you will find many Realtor's do not actively engage in rentals. I would suggest you contact the local property management companies and of course diligently review Craig's List each day. Many landlords or their agents say they won't accept S8 but sometimes you have to go and present yourself and try to change their mindset. Most won't but some might. Best of luck. ... more
