Landed Launches with the University of Colorado

Uphold those who uphold us. This common purpose drives all of our work at Landed. From our Relationship Managers who help educators build a supportive team of partner agents and lenders to help navigate the homebuying journey — to our finance and investments team who review property disclosures to help educators make informed homebuying decisions, we center our work on helping essential professionals build financial security because we believe educators should be able to own homes in the communities they serve.

Over the last 10 years, Colorado has experienced substantial economic and population growth. In turn, rising housing prices across the Denver and Boulder metro areas have made it difficult for employees in education to lay down roots near the communities they serve.

Since Landed’s work in Colorado began with K-12 educators in 2018, over 50 Denver and Boulder area educators have purchased homes with Landed’s down payment program and more than 1,000 have received homebuyer resources and educational materials — making Colorado Landed’s most successful region outside of California.

Building on this success, we’re excited to announce our launch with the University of Colorado (CU). CU is Landed’s third and largest higher education partnership in Colorado.

With this partnership, we’re serving an even wider group of essential professionals who uphold our communities: faculty, staff, and administrators at CU Anschutz Medical Center who are also nurses, public health experts, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals by trade. Across all of the University’s campuses, we see that it takes a village to make education happen, and we’re committed to serving all those who make this education possible; any employee of the CU system is eligible for Landed’s support. 

CU employees can now use Landed’s down payment program to purchase a primary residence in the urban or near-urban parts of the following counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Jefferson, and Park — and we anticipate expanding Landed’s down payment program to El Paso County in fall 2020.

We’ve also expanded Landed’s free homebuying services to include a more robust library of homebuyer educational materials, competitive offer reviews, and a supportive homebuying team built around educators to help navigate the homebuying process. These services are available — regardless of whether an employee chooses to use Landed’s down payment program — to employees at all four main CU campuses: CU Anschutz Medical Campus, CU Boulder, CU Colorado Springs, and CU Denver.

"I am proud every day to be a CU Buff alum, which makes me even more excited about being able to bring the amazing things that Landed provides to the entire CU organization!" — Emily Baker, Landed Homebuying Programs Lead

Almost exactly two years ago, Landed launched our first partnership in Colorado with Denver Public Schools. At the time, we had one Denver employee, no official office, and a hope that we could help local educators buy homes to build roots. Two years later, we’re thrilled to mark our growth and success with this partnership with the University of Colorado. We’ve helped over 50 educators buy homes, there are now six local Landed employees, and we have an actual office. Our ability to continue to serve educators in the Denver and Boulder metro areas is deeply connected to the University — as three of our local Landed teammates actually share the University of Colorado as their alma mater. 

Landed will be hosting a series of informational events on the campuses of CU Boulder, CU Denver, and CU Anschutz Medical Campus in early March. You can find the complete list of events at: www.landed.com/cu.
