Your search area covers a pretty broad area and so it would be most likely that you could find a "lease option."
Most people selling their property do not initially consider a lease option scenario upon listing their property. They list it for sale and generally, consider this alternative after they get into the selling process. Availability of these options is limited but they are there. In most cases, it's a matter of the buyer finding a truly motivated seller and creating the opportunity.
For buyers, like yourself, seeking lease options, it is probably best to do so by working with a specific agent from your location of choice to test the market. It's possible that they may know of someone that would consider a lease option.
Additionally, people that may take you seriously, would probably insist on a larger deposit to protect their interests. Plan accordingly.
