The Landed Story
We founded Landed in 2015 because we saw how essential professionals struggle to live in the Bay Area. In expensive cities, high land prices prevent individuals from becoming the long-term residents our communities depend on.
If we want stronger schools and safer communities, we need to uphold those who make it possible. That’s why we provide services like down payment support to teachers and school staff: if more of us feel at home, we all benefit.
Landed is on a mission to help essential professionals (starting with educators) build financial security near the communities they serve. We invest alongside teachers and school staff when they are ready to buy a home in expensive cities like San Francisco, Denver, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Landed is always growing, and we now offer financial wellness education and resources for essential professionals, too.
We are former educators, organizers, realtors, consultants, and investors working together to serve essential professionals.
Landed has the backing of Y Combinator, top banking executives, affordable housing policy experts, union organizers, philanthropists, Stanford economists, and prominent venture capital investors. To learn about the team behind Landed, read our bios here.
