Help me understand renting and buying a house, please

Hey, RE! We’re a family of expats, been living in Europe for 10 years but now have to return to US. We have enough money to buy a house with cash but wanted to investigate the potential areas and therefore wanted to rent for a couple months. What’s our best option here? Since it’s not going to be long term I doubt traditional landlords would be happy plus we’re both self employed without any proof of income except our bank account. Is Airbnb the only option and should we just suck it up with the premium we’ll have to pay? Second question is about home buying process, we’re planning on getting a realtor, but I’m not even sure where to look? We have no friends in the area (WA) and have little understanding of the process tbh. What would you recommended us do in this situation? Thanks!
