Keeping an eye on the basics


Make sure that bad birds of a feather don’t flock together on your property.


Rental Credit Reporting provides Houston’s apartment industry with the most effective credit and collection reporting tool available. RCR gives your leasing staff immediate access to information about which residents are in good standing and who has received their deposit refund. RCR also tells you who hasn’t paid rent or who has broken a lease.


Don’t miss out on this basic information that can tell you a whole lot more about a renter than just a credit score.


For more information, contact RCR at 713-595-0330, email rcr@haaonline.org or visit us online at www.haaonline.org.
