CoreLogic, a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today opened online access to comprehensive tenant screening data for independent landlords with the launch of MyRental.com. The new service provides the same applicant rental histories, eviction data, and criminal reports to small landlords who rent properties independently as those large apartment complexes and property management companies use to mitigate renter-applicant risk. Where services like these previously seemed cost prohibitive, the rates as low as $10 per assessment-with no minimum and no sign-up fee-MyRental.com gives independent landlords managing a small number of properties a way to cost-effectively compete for high-quality tenants while reducing their exposure to risk.
“The recent growth in U.S. rental households is sparking demand for risk management tools tailored for independent landlords,” said Tim Grace, senior vice president of data & analytics product management at CoreLogic. “Previously, small landlords relied on their instincts, a few documents, and applicant-supplied character references to assess rental applicants. Now they have a tool to limit uncertainty and accelerate decision-making with more reliable information to qualify renters.”
