Landed is on a mission to help essential professionals, starting with educators, build financial security near the communities they serve. One of the ways we do this is by investing equity alongside educators when they are ready to buy a home. We call this shared equity down payment assistance. Here's how it works. The company, founded in 2015 and based in San Francisco, has the backing of: Y Combinator, prominent angel and venture capital investors, top banking executives, former directors of federal housing authorities, affordable housing policy experts, union organizers, philanthropists, and Stanford economists.
Helping great educators become homeowners keeps them in the classroom and improves student outcomes. That's why Landed is financially supported by great organizations like the DRK Foundation and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Recent news coverage about Landed can be found in the Wall Street Journal, on NPR, and in the San Jose Mercury.
