RealPage Rent Reporting
Your Residents Have an Easy, Affordable Way to Grow Their Credit Score
Rent Reporting Benefits Both Communities and Residents
RealPage® Rent Reporting is an optional service for your residents, where they pay for automatic reporting of their rent payment activity to all three major credit bureaus1 — Equifax®, Experian® and TransUnion®. Residents can easily sign up and pay through ActiveBuilding®, and there is no administration or change to existing processes for your property or staff.
Good Credit is Good For Your Community
Consumers recognize that good credit scores impact them on many levels — from their ability to rent without a co-signer to securing good interest rates on car loans and other revolving credit. That’s why approximately 60% of renters will choose an apartment that offers rent reporting over one that does not2, and those same renters are more likely to make on-time rent payments.
Incremental Revenue Without Extra Work
Plus, RealPage is providing a revenue share based on the amount of paid subscriptions at your community. Entirely integrated into the ActiveBuilding Resident Portal workflow, we estimate this will drive up to $10 per unit annually in incremental revenue without adding burden to your staff.
