SWAPALEASE.COM RELEASES LATEST FIGURES ON LEASE CREDIT APPROVALS

 

Lease Credit Approvals Reached 67.6% in June; Down Slightly from 69.9% in May 

  

CINCINNATI, OHIO (July 20, 2021) – Swapalease.com, the nation’s largest car lease marketplace, reports car lease credit applicants registered a 67.6% approval rate in June. The approval rate is a small decrease from the 69.9% approval rate in May.  
 
The June number, although lower than last month's rate, is higher than the same time last year, when the approval rate was at 67.1% right at the beginning of the pandemic. The steady, incremental increase indicates consumer credit levels are also holding steady as many households continue to receive stimulus relief provided by the government.   
 
As opposed to consumer borrowing, many are utilizing stimulus checks toward paying debt. With consumers reigning in their credit usage as well as lowering revolving debt, Americans have more confidence to go out and take over someone else’s vehicle lease.  
 
Swapalease.com believes many of its site visitors and vehicle customers have solid credentials available to take over a person’s vehicle lease. The stability to have more flexibility in leasing through economic uncertainly may contribute to an increase in shoppers looking to lease vehicles through the secondary market – where lease payments are much more appealing than what’s currently offered at a dealership.  
 
“Credit strength continues to stabilize due to the figures maintained throughout the first half of 2021 and we believe this will only continue into the second half,” said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. “Because Americans are either saving or paying down debt with their government stimulus money, consumer credit confidence will ultimately continue to grow leading to larger spending in future quarters.” 
 
Swapalease.com matches a person wanting out of their existing vehicle lease contract with a car shopper looking to take over a short-term vehicle lease. The marketplace has thousands of cars and trucks available for transfer to anywhere in the continental U.S.
