RealPage® Security Deposit Alternatives

Tackle bad debt, get ahead of regulatory laws and increase efficiency.

Deposit Alternatives

Two Solutions. Unlimited Benefits.

Our deposit alternative solutions allow you to protect against lost rent and damages, advertise lower move-in options and reduce bad debt without losing leases from high security deposits.

Deposit Insurance

The all-new zero-risk Deposit Insurance allows you to offer your residents the choice of a small, non-refundable monthly premium instead of an upfront security deposit. Reduce bad debt without losing leases from high deposits—at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.

DepositIQ replaces the upfront security deposit and lets you offer residents the option of purchasing an affordable one-time, non-refundable surety bond that guarantees lease obligations instead.
