Asked by j-e9801, Albuquerque, NM Sun Jul 22, 2012

We are wanting to re-locate from OK to albuquerque to reunite with family. Spouse and I both have horrible credit,also another reason we want to relocate for better employment oppurtunity. We have rented from the same person here in OK for the last 6 years. Do we have a chance at a rental? Looking for 3 bedroom in the 700-800 range

Now is the time to get yourself established with your credit. Spend the next year in OK or ABQ getting your credit fixed, paying your rent on time along with bills like phone, utility etc and getting settled in a job that will look good on your credit. Rents are high here you may find a 3 br in the price range you're looking for but many landlords are picky about credit history, if you have a good record with your present landlord it will help. Check the Albuquerque Journal online and the MLS, also have your family here be on the lookout for you. Feel free to email me at hope this helps!

Make sure when you leave that you have asked your landlord if they will give you a good recommendation as tenants. Also, see if he has a spreadsheet or logs of any kind showing that you paid rent consistently on time. Living at one rental for 6 years and having that landlord give you a great reference can go a long way in renting a home from a private home-owner/landlord. In using the larger rental companies, you can be sure your credit will play a factor. However, there are still many "mom and pop" landlords that won't do a credit check and will instead look at rental history and a personal interview with you. Your history sounds solid.

Be prepared to buy you way past any credit report issues. A few hundred extra dollars on deposit towards the last month or two of rent may get you the property you need.

It's possible, but the decision can vary by individual owners. To get you started, You try web sites such as:

Be careful when using web sites such as craigslist. There can be scams on that web site. Be sure to check out all potential owners/landlords.
