Fast and Reliable
Tenant Screening

Savvy uses open banking to make renter applicant screening faster and more reliable for property managers and renters.

More reliable and higher-fidelity data on renters

Traditional renter screening depends on credit scores, which are an unreliable indicator of future payment performance.

Avoid fraud. Make a decision in seconds.

1-page risk summary allows managers to quickly view risks and make more reliable tenancy decisions

Identity Verification

Retrieve names, phone numbers, addresses, and emails from registered bank account information, verifying identities and reducing fraud

Income & Cash Flows

Transactions data shows renter income and cash flows over time

Rent Payment History

Access 12-24 months of renters’ transaction data, verifying on-time rent payments and amount paid

Property & Leasing Managers

How it Works

  1. Send prospective renter a link to apply
  2. Applicant shares info and grants access to their bank account through our secure web portal
  3. We analyze applicant bank account data, review credit score, and order supplementary reports as necessary
  4. We send the manager a 1-page risk summary along with supporting materials
