If your credit is good, it shows you take responsibility for yourself and will most likely make an excellent tenant. Property Management companies have the task of seeking occupants who will faithfully make monthly payments and exercise good housekeeping skills.
At times, available rental homes will remain vacant too long because property managers refuse to take risks in selecting a candidate who has not shown evidence of wise credit usage which reflects on their report. It's always a pleasure to present positive findings back to property owners.
Scores of 600 and up are considered to be good rental potentials. Ratings of lesser points indicate troubling challenges, and could be reasons for denial of a rental home.
Annual credit reports for consumers are available and offered FREE by three major credit reporting bureaus. Credit scores can be obtained for a charge. More information can be found online at: Annual Credit Report or by phone at:
- Trans Union: 800-916-8800
- Experian: 888-397-3742
- Equifax: 800-685-1111
If you are searching for a rental accommodation and possess good credit, the door is wide open with multiple choices in housing, while those with poor credit are limited.
