When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
I'd suggest calling Remax Realty Consultants. They have a property management division
and may have something in that area. If they don't they may be able to refer you to someone
else who can help.... more
I don't have rentals. I will look on the MLS to find you a rental and then we will ask the landlord if they participate in the section 8 program. If interested in having me help you call me at 704-219-3160. Thanks.... more
Unfortunately, your situation is not uncommon. So many have gone through the same distress you describe. You can be sure the rental market recognizes your situation and has accommodated the need.
Here is what you need to prepare.
#1. Document you have been a home owner and know how to care for a single family home.
#2. Explain how your hardship was created.
#3. Describe how your situation is different
#4. Reveal how the cause of previous difficulty no longer exists.
#5. Have sufficient cash on hand to make security deposit and pay professional fees.
#6. Work with a real estate professional who can identify those home owners and investors with a home to rent that meets your needs and understands your situation.(Don't under estimate the importance of working with a professional)
You will find your situation is not dire at all.
Best of success to you,

Not looking for business; Why don't you consider BUYING:
You will have VA eligibity, and with disability, you will not have the FUNDING FEE.
You should talk to the local VA office; they are there to help.
But I think you should work directly with an agent who can help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!
