Ken, you've responded to a similar question with the same response more than once and I've shared my thoughts which I'm glad to do again.
Couple of notes regarding a good resident who is probably looking to buy a house in the future and asking how can their rent payments be reported.
These are the type pf residents who are most likely willing to pay a few dollars extra to participate in a program which will report the payments, therefore not costing the landlord any extra money.
A resident who wants their payments reported are also far more likely to make sure their rent payments are made on time during the time they do reside in your property, so that their payments will indeed help their credit instead of hurting it.
A good resident who is looking to buy a house will only be with you as a resident for a limited number of years, whether the payments are reported or not. Just as well make it as much a win-win relationship during the tenancy as you can. And as you look to help them, the odds are far greater they will help in referring another good resident when they do move and leave your property in excellent condition on the way out.
My experience of those utilizing the Clearnow method of paying and rent reporting when they finish their rental term have returned the property in great condition. I have several residents paying rent automatically each month using the service that I never worry if rent is going to be paid.
