International Credit Reports: The Future of Tenant Screening

Moving to a new country is a tough challenge on its own. A major hurdle any new U.S. resident must face is establishing credit. The United States has 43 million 1st generation immigrants, 76 million 2nd generation immigrants, and about 50% of Americans identify as 3rd generation immigrants.  Millions of people move to the U.S every year but their credit history does not move with them. If you're a leasing professional or landlord, you may have also faced this hurdle when screening new tenants. 

International Screening

Traditional tenant screening services do not offer a solution to help a rental business do their due diligence, leaving a leasing agent to guess work. More time is spent, fees goes up and both the international renters and the leasing agent feel at a disadvantage. Intellirent has partnered with Nova Credit to solve this problem.
