Many lenders and brokers use private credit reporting agencies that are familiar with credit reporting software and you should too.
Private agencies share consumer data that’s both positive and negative, giving lenders a full picture of their customer’s credit status. They also provide data with variation. Privately owned credit reporting companies have a history of giving a more concise and extensive credit history reports.
Private agencies also provide a wider credit history, sharing data from five years back or further. And they collect data towards loans that gross above 1% per capita, further extending the information needed to prequalify your customers for loans.
