WHY SHOULD I BE INTERESTED?

Rent reporting is gaining traction across the U.S. as a proven way to help renters establish and build credit. Renters are seven times more likely to have no credit score compared to homeowners. Many also have limited opportunities to build credit history, which directly impacts their ability to get and stay ahead in today’s economy.

It’s a win-win! Find out more about the benefits of rent reporting here. 

 

Reporting rental payments provides renters an opportunity to build credit as a financial asset without taking on additional debt. For landlords, it is an amenity that can attract new renters to your housing and encourage on-time rent payments.
