TransUnion SmartMove ResidentScore

When browsing our site, you may have noticed the term "ResidentScore" 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 ResidentScore is the way to go:

  • The ResidentScore uses, at a minimum, the same information that's factored for a FICO Score or any other credit score. 
  • Like a traditional FICO score, the ResidentScore ranges from 350-850.
  • The ResidentScore 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 ResidentScore is designed specifically for tenant screening by TransUnion.
