Best of luck to you in your role as landlords and in your new home.
Fortunately we do have a say as to who we rent to. If we had five or more rentals that would not be the case. We do credit and background checks and the rent and deposit help to keep down the riff-raff, although some of them still respond to the ad.
We bought the property 15 years ago and designed and built a home several years later. It is nestled in a forested area at the southern tip of the Rocky Mountains, ten miles from downtown Santa Fe. Well, I know you like pictures:
Thank you for your good wishes
