This is a great point. 


I do think rent should be factored into credit and I hope the industry does head in that direction. You could make the argument that it's not a line of credit but if it were my house and I were letting you live there, that's extending quite a bit of good faith. Not precisely credit but similar exchange of something that is mine for a payment you will make me later based on your written agreement to do so. I would imagine that as far as statistics go, one's ability to pay rent on time every month is fairly predictive of their ability to meet other such obligations in a timely manner. 


Just my two cents. 

Starting Score: EXP 615 | TU 610 | EQ 635
Current Score: EXP 719 (lender pull 10/15) | TU 707 | EQ 700 (lender pull 10/25)
Goal Score: 740
