Maybe you have not kept up with the market of late. IBR - $1500-2000 maybe. What about those tiny houses by Indio Muerto? Don't overlook local mobile homes - mortgage payments can compete sometimes with local rents. House-sitting? ADU? Use your networks - many landlords don't like to advertise, but prefer to get a new tenant by word of mouth through friends so you never see them in the ads. Walk the neighborhoods you like, and just talk to people who might also know about something coming up. Talk to real estate agents who also act as rental agents for out of town property owners - they love getting a no-hassle, stable income renter and will often rent under-market to keep one. Pounding the pavement and cold calls may surprise you. The old joke even back in the 1970's was if you saw the ad, it was already rented.
