I really want a rental but there are more for sale than for rent..can I lease?Hi, I really need a small 1 or 2 bedroom rental in the Santa Ynez Valley but the rental market is so tight, competitive and a lot of rentals are by word of mouth. However, I am seeing so many houses for sale, month after month. Is it possible to rent one of those for sale on a six month or one year lease? When I approach real estate agents they usually say no. What is the best way to get a nice guest house rental in a quiet safe neighborhood in Santa Ynez Valley?
