Our Process

1

Create a renter profile

Creating a renter profile with Landing Locals is fast, free, and easy. This includes information like household size, housing budget, and employment information that we use to match you to potential homes.

2

Receive rental listings before they go live on our website

When a new home becomes available, Landing Locals sends listings to renters in our database whose search criteria match the parameters of the home. You’ll receive the listing 24 hours before we post it on our website.
3

Get matched with a homeowner and see the home

We put the qualifying and interested renter profiles in front of the homeowner, and then the homeowner selects three to five tenants they would like to show the home to. Landing Locals will coordinate a showing of the property, either in-person or virtual.
4

Fill out an application

Landing Locals sends rental applications to renters who the homeowner is interested in moving forward with. We do a comprehensive tenant screening and the homeowner makes the final selection for their tenant.
5

Sign a lease

Once the homeowner is ready to finalize the lease with their renter, Landing Locals coordinates the lease signing and move-in details with both parties.

Frequently Asked Questions

Landing Locals’ mission is to help the local workforce secure housing. Because of that, we prioritize renters who are locally employed and those who already live in the community. We have a three-tiered system to ensure that local and established renters receive listings first and are the first renter profiles we send to homeowners.

Tier 1: Locally Employed

At least one member of the household has local employment and lives in the region. This includes locally employed people who are trying to move closer to where they work, or who are moving to the region for a new job in the community.

Tier 2: Established in the Region and Working Remotely

At least one member of the household is already established in the community (with their primary residence in the area) and has remote employment.

Tier 3: Moving to the Region and Working Remotely 

No one in the household currently lives in the area or has work in the community. This includes people looking to relocate to the region long-term with remote employment.

You can read more about our tiered system in this blog post.

If you’re not receiving listings, it might be because the listings we have do not match the exact criteria you filled out on your profile (ex: the rent is higher than your stated budget or the home has space for only one car but your household has two adults). Please note that we go off of your criteria exactly, and will not assume you are willing to flex from that unless you’ve told us otherwise. We will also not send you listings assuming that the homeowner will be willing to flex their criteria either (ex: we will not reach out to you if the homeowner has stated no pets but your profile shows that you have one well-behaved dog). You can always update your renter profile by emailing us directly. Soon you’ll be able to edit your renter profile yourself from our website – stay tuned! You can read about how we prioritize tenants and who we send listings to first in FAQ question one.

Landing Locals represents each candidate fairly, with unbiased information to the homeowner and ensures that homeowners follow the Fair Housing Act. However, homeowners make the decision about who they show the house to and who they select for their tenant. There is a huge discrepancy in supply and demand — we have far more renters looking for housing than we have homes available. We understand that it can be frustrating to not be selected for showings, or after the showing, to not be selected as the tenant. Please know that we are doing our best to find housing for as many local renters as we can.

There is no fee for your renter profile or rental application. The only fee you pay is for a $30 background check during the final stages of the process, immediately preceding lease signing. Note that if you complete your background check and do not move forward with a lease at that property for any reason, the background check is transferable to other properties in our system within 30 days. You can additionally download the background check and use it for other purposes.

Landing Locals works with homeowners, informing them of the median budget for renters in our system in hopes of making their homes affordable for locally employed renters. However, the homeowner ultimately gets to decide on the final rent price for their home. Landing Locals does not take a cut of monthly rent or add in fees that make homeowners set higher prices on their homes

Just like the setting of the rent price, Landing Locals shares with homeowners the percent of renters in our system that are looking for an unfurnished home and a long-term lease, yet the homeowner makes the final decision about furnishings and lease length. Landing Locals conveys to homeowners the need for long-term rentals, yet some homeowners wish to use their home for a season or in-between rentals. Especially if a homeowner is converting their home to a rental for the first time, they may prefer a shorter lease to start out and may not be open to unfurnishing the home. Additionally, while we know that unfurnished homes are more attractive to long-term renters and we love long-term renters, there is also a need for seasonal (or even long-term) furnished homes. At Landing Locals, we would rather see a home utilized for a short time if the alternative is that it’s left completely empty. We are hopeful that some of our short-term rentals will turn into long-term rentals in the future as homeowners build trust and understand the positive impact their rental home has on the community.
