What is a Resident Score?


TransUnion SmartMove Resident Score

When browsing our site, you may have noticed the term "Resident Score" periodically. This is a type of credit score that is specifically designed for tenant screening from TransUnion. Here are some reasons that a TransUnion SmartMove Resident Score is the way to go:

  • The Resident Score uses, at a minimum, the same information that's factored for a FICO Score or any other credit score.
  • The Resident Score analyzes resident records and uses additional rental data tailored for resident screening and rental history.
  • It is a better predictor of rental outcomes.
  • Traditional credit scores are used to predict the outcome of a loan, not rental performance. 
  • The Resident Score is designed specifically for tenant screening by TransUnion.
  • Uses a traditional 350-850 range for the score.
