Rising Consumer Borrowing Translates Into More Credit Applications on

Cincinnati, OH (April 15, 2014), the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports lease credit approvals during the month of March were at 69.6%, up from last month’s yearly low of 66.7%. The 69.6% approvals mark is also the level of the last three months, indicating a credit approvals landscape that continues to hover near the “healthy” mark of 70%.

The credit approvals rate over the last twelve months stands at 71.7%. Prior to March, the approvals rate had continuously dropped from early fall of 2013 when the approvals rate rose to approximately 76%. Since then, has noticed an increasing rate of credit applications due to more lease shoppers entering the marketplace.

According to data cited in a recent Bloomberg news article, consumers borrowed more for autos and other non-revolving loans in February, exceeding estimates from economists. Consumers borrowed $16.5 billion in advanced credit compared with $13.8 billion in January, signaling an American appetite for credit that keeps rising.

“A consumer that wants to borrow doesn’t always mean they will be approved, which is why our approval rate continues to hover near the 70% healthy mark,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of “Credit worthiness is the most important aspect of getting approved for a car lease, and expects this number to remain at or near healthy levels for the near term.”

When a car lease shopper is interested in taking over someone’s lease, matches the two parties and helps the “buyer” connect with the lease company to being the credit approvals process. If anyone is not approved they can work with a partner to repair or improve their credit standing before a re-application process.
