What is the minimum credit score you require when screening for potential tenants? What service do you use for screening credit scores?
No minimum. I do screen credits through https://www.tenantbackgroundsearch.com/ and it provides me with credit scores, but it's such a garbage system that many great tenants don't fully understand. I'm much more concerned with employment and rental history. I don't ignore it, but it's a factor that I weigh less heavily if everything else meets my criteria.
700 minimum. My screening is done through my property managers.
I don't care about the score. I care about transactional history. Does this person make an effort month in and out to meet their obligations. A credit score can be in the toilet for any number of reasons, but the history doesn't lie. It tells the entire story.
