These Days, It Takes Good Credit Just to Rent a Home

These Days, It Takes Good Credit Just to Rent a Home

In the past, we’ve somewhat equated the need for good credit with the ability to buy a home.  After all, in order to qualify for a mortgage, you need to have at least “decent” credit and to get the best rates, you have to have excellent credit.

But now the pandemic and things like the moratorium on evictions have left many people with credit scores so low that landlords and property managers will not even consider their rental applications.

Combine low credit scores with unemployment and rising rents, and you can quickly see how people can be stuck living with relatives because they can’t qualify for rental housing.

That’s where we can help!

3-4 months of credit repair, which will cost far less than the security deposit on a rental, can move those credit scores north into territory that makes qualification for a rental unit possible again.  We understand exactly what needs to be done and we have years of experience doing it.

So if you or someone you know is having difficulty renting due to poor credit, we’ve got the answer and we’re happy to explain exactly how we do it!  Give our office a call and get back on the road to affordable housing.
