Good Screening Starts with Good Marketing in Albuquerque

Attracting as much attention as possible to your vacant rental property is going to require strategic online advertising and immediate follow-up. Our team is responsive and ready. We will quickly answer any questions prospective tenants have. We always expect an overwhelming response when we post an ad – our homes are well-maintained and in desirable locations. Tenants are eager to see them.

You can expect an online listing that includes:

  • Professional-level photography, highlighting your property’s best features.
  • Well-written and accurate descriptions that really sell your home’s assets.
  • Our contact information, including phone, email, and website details.
  • All the pertinent information to help us pre-screen, such as rental amount and whether pets are allowed.

Our process for showings is innovative and responsive. We’ll be prepared to show your property at the tenant’s convenience. 

Properties that show well rent faster than those that are neglected. We won’t begin showing your property until we know everything is working and functional. We’ll have the place professionally cleaned, and we’ll make sure everything is in place to attract Albuquerque’s best tenants.

Fair and Consistent Tenant Screenings Protect Your Investment

Our screening process is consistent and rigorous to ensure that your residents are responsible and trustworthy. We require every applicant who is 18 years of age or older to complete an application and pay an application fee.

As soon as we have that completed application, we go through it to verify identity and confirm all the information we have gathered through credit reports and other records. We use technology to automate most of the process, but we also take the time to talk to former landlords and evaluate income against the amount of rent that will be due every month.

Some of the things we check when we’re screening your tenants include:

  • Credit history and credit report.
  • National eviction searches.
  • Information about unpaid debts to former landlords or apartment buildings.
  • Outstanding or unpaid utility bills.
  • Employment and income verification.
  • Landlord references and rental history.

If you’re renting out a pet-friendly property and your prospective tenant has pets, we’ll also screen those animals and discuss the pet fees, pet rent, and pet policy we have in place.

Potential tenants always know what we expect before they fill out an application. We explain our criteria and what will be necessary before we approve an application.


Preparing a Lease that Establishes Expectations

Once we’ve approved a tenant, we’ll help you with collecting the move-in funds, settling on a move-in date, and executing a lease agreement. We’ll also conduct the move-in inspection, which is an important part of protecting your property from tenant damage.

The lease is perhaps the most important document of the tenancy. It will clearly establish the responsibilities of each party. It will also let the tenant know what’s expected in terms of rental payments, maintenance requests, utilities, communication, pets, and guests. 

Almost everything can be done electronically now, from the lease signing to the rental payments. We’re prepared for that because we’ve invested heavily in technology. We’re always prepared for phone calls and in-person help, however, and our tenants know we’re ready to help and support with anything they need during the move-in process.

We place excellent tenants quickly, and the result is a more efficient, more profitable investment experience for our owners.

Karen Martin-McKenzie with The Bruni Karr Agency was my mom Sharon's realtor. She was patient, kind, very accommodating, and did I mention patient. Karen took time to make sure mom understood and was happy with all steps of getting her new home in Belen. Karen's knowledge not only of the housing market but the closing process, made mom's next step in her life a pleasure. Thank You

I just completed selling a property that has been difficult to say the least. I don't know how bad it could have really been had I not had Karen Martin McKenzie by my side the whole way. I've bought and sold several homes, but this was the most pleasant of all my experiences. Karen was ever present with advice and support. Her empathy and knowledge were a comfort on more than one occasion. I have been fortunate to have her exceptional compassion and expertise through this trying time. 💜
