Landis is a sale-leaseback and rent-to-own service that helps buyers access the cash required to purchase a home in exchange for equity in the home.
A buyer applies for Landis to get qualified, and, on approval, will work with a partner agent to find a home. Landis will then purchase the home, and the buyer will rent the home from Landis until buying it back at a predetermined price.
According to most sources, Landis does not have a strict pricing scale and will set terms on a case-by-case basis with buyers based on market rents and other factors.
Landis primarily makes money by charging rent to buyers it works with as well as the capturing a share of appreciation of the house during the rental period.
Landis is privately held.
Landis acquired the assets of GoldenKey, a discount real estate brokerage service, in 2018.
