For more than 20 years, Millennium Trust has provided access to and custody solutions for alternative asset investments, including real estate. Utilizing Accruit's patented technology and user-friendly online software solution, Exchange Manager ProSM, clients can now take advantage of the tax benefits of leveraging 1031 exchanges and increase cash flow by deferring taxes on gains realized through the sale of qualifying real estate.

We help people leverage their assets to invest in alternatives like real estate, and we're excited about this step forward, pairing the highest level of administrative expertise and exceptional service with Accruit's revolutionary 1031 exchange software technology," Millennium Trust CEO Dan Laszlo said.

Our company values and path forward are aligned, and we are thrilled to begin working with Accruit's talented industry experts to immediately bring additional value to Millennium Trust's alternative asset clients," said Erik Beck, Chief Commercial Officer of Millennium Trust.

Rently, the leader in self-touring and smart home technology solutions, is pleased to announce a partnership with TURSS, a subsidiary of TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) to provide single-family property managers with an automated leasing application that helps eliminate rental fraud, streamlines business operations, and ensures quality tenants.
Rently's "3-in-1" rental application uses multi-layer security features and innovative AI technology to instantly verify renter ID, income, and credit history. Using information provided by touring renters, Rently's application can be pre-filled up to 30%, connected immediately to bank accounts and TransUnion for financial verifications, and approved within hours.
"Rently is excited to expand our portfolio of smart leasing tools with an innovative product that helps our clients find the best possible tenants," said Merrick Lackner, Rently CEO. "Rently's 3-in-1 rental application continues our commitment to creating real value for our customers."
"TransUnion's TruVision™ Resident Score was specifically created for the rental housing industry to provide the most predictive benefit of reducing bad debt through lower evictions and skips," said Maitri Johnson, vice president of tenant and employment screening at TransUnion. "We provide a comprehensive view of each applicant to help property managers choose the most qualified tenants, while remaining fully compliant with the Fair Housing Act."
In addition to providing renters with a superior experience, Rently's application also saves renters money because it can be transferred across multiple homes under the same management company and used by multiple renters applying as roommates. Renters can also avoid unnecessary application fees by using Rently's iQual+™, a feature that helps them avoid applying to homes they may not qualify for.
Rently's application seamlessly integrates with its popular touring and smart home platform, and managers can view listings and applicants from the same desktop portal. Because it can be easily added through open integration, Rently's application is ideal for clients looking for a flexible "plug and play" solution.
Rently is the leader in self-touring and smart home technology. We offer best-in-class proptech solutions for the rental housing industry. We combine top-tier hardware with an innovative software platform that allows real estate operators to optimize their leasing efficiency and expand revenue opportunities. Rently.com
