Webinar sponsor: Leap is a high-growth fintech startup that helps underqualified individuals gain access to sought-after apartments by acting as a cosigner on their lease. Typically, landlord portfolios experience between 5%-10% vacancy loss on rentals. Yet, perfectly good applicants are regularly declined due to blemished credit, student status, or other factors that do not impact their ability to pay. That’s where Leap helps. Their proprietary underwriting tools allow for quick and thorough vetting of potential residents, which expands a landlord’s pool of qualified tenants and eliminates default risk. Leap’s goal is to improve the financial performance of landlords while helping people qualify for better apartments.
