What Landlords Look For When Renting a Home

Homes For Rent in PMC

Pine Mountain Club Rentals

Anyone looking to rent a home knows that they will need to look good in the eyes of the landlord in order to have the best chance of securing the property.  What is the most important thing a homeowner looks at when considering renting to a prospective tenant?  Good Credit.  Yes, it should be no surprise that a positive credit history is the most important aspect of a renter’s application.  In short, a person’s credit is the best evidence of their willingness to pay their bills and financial responsibility.

What about rental history?  Yes, that is important as well, however a good FICO score can outweigh other aspects of the applicant’s biography.

So what is a good credit score?  A FICO between 680 and 850 is generally acceptable. Without a good  credit history an applicant will have an uphill battle trying to rent a home unless he or she has a co-signor.

There are exceptions to every rule and in some cases such as a catastrophic medical situation, an otherwise poor credit score may be outweighed by other considerations such as excellent rental payment history or long term employment.

If you are looking to rent a home in the near future get your credit in good shape.

What other considerations do most Landlords have?  Good References from multiple past Landlords is one, in other words does the applicant have a good history paying rent on time and maintaining the home in good condition?

Another is a minimum income of 3 times the rent.  Unless a prospective renter has sufficient verifiable income to afford the home, they may not qualify.  This income needs to be from a stable source.  The tenant needs to be able to afford the rent in addition to other monthly bills.

The tenant cannot have a prior eviction or a Judgement from a previous Landlord or property manager.

The tenant must also pass a background check which includes criminal history.  A criminal conviction will not automatically bar them from renting a property.

Minimum Qualifying Standards will exist in the rental application process.  We invite everyone to apply, however the application must meet the Qualifying Standards.  All applicants are required to meet the minimum requirements in order to be approved for the home.

Coming Up To Pine Mountain Club For The Snow

Traffic to Pine Mountain Club to see the snow

The Road To Pine Mountain Club

Pine Mountain Club becomes very popular in the winter after a snow storm.  Thousands of folks from LA and Bakersfield drive up to PMC to see and play in the snow.  The picture above is a recent photo taken on January 21 2019, Sunday.  The road headed into Pine Mountain Club was closed at 2 pm for residents only, however the road back to the freeway was bumper to bumper for miles, filled with visitors heading home after a day in the snow at Mt. Pinos and surrounding areas.

Home For Rent in Pine Mountain Club

Pine Mountain Club is a prestigious mountain enclave located a mile high in the Los Padres National Forest outside Frazier Park, Pinion Pines and Lake of the Woods. The community is situated at a higher altitude than Denver Colorado. The area is so secluded it was once rumored to be the choice location to hide those participating in the Federal Witness Protection Program, yet only 1 Hour From Los Angeles.  Homes here are very coveted and inventory is typically low.

This mountain retreat at 2405 Yellowstone Court is available now. This highly sought after home boasts the most breathtaking views from each of its 3 decks.  It is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac with national forest in the front and back.  Yellowstone Court is one of the most private streets in PMC, away from the Village Center and Country Club.

The home is tucked away from the dead end street so there is virtually no traffic.  The street is paved and maintained, including snow removal, by the association, a service included in the monthly home owner dues that are paid by the landlord.  The driveway is concrete and extra wide, leading to a double sized two car garage with a remote opener.

What Makes Pine Mountain Club an ideal place to live?  It’s possibly what it doesn’t have.  It doesn’t have any traffic, it doesn’t have large shopping malls and strip malls on every street, no homeless people begging at the intersection and it has never had a high speed police chase broadcast on the local news.

Leaving the City For the Mountains

If you are thinking about leaving the city for a new life in Pine Mountain Club you are not alone.  Many former city dwellers have taken the plunge to start living life where the air is crisp and clean and traffic headaches are nonexistent.  The PMC community is a hidden gem only one hour from the San Fernando Valley yet when your here you feel a million miles from the big city.

Before you move forward here are some things to consider:

  1.  Big city amenities are limited.  There is no Costco in Pine Mountain Club.  Shopping must be done in advance and is something planned.  There are markets in the area, however choices and prices are not as favorable as living in the Valley or other large city.  There is no corner Starbucks in PMC.  The good news is that any inconvenience is more than made up by the lower home costs, lower monthly rent and higher quality of life.
  2. The snow.  Make sure you have snow tires.  Many people who make the transition to Mountain living do not plan for the cold weather.  You will use the heater more in the winter so fuel costs are also a bigger concern.  Most homes run on propane which needs to be refilled periodically.
  3. Internet.  Choices are limited, however there is high speed internet available.  If you use the web for your work, consider the providers in your area.
  4. Cell coverage.  Some carriers are not well represented in PMC.  Although there is a new cell phone tower, make sure your provider offers good coverage.
  5. Wildlife.  There are bears, deer, raccoons, and other critters.  Be careful when driving, especially at night, as deer cross the road regularly and can cause major damage.  Avoid leaving pet food outside.  Keep trash cans covered.
