Program highlights

  • Down-payment support through Landed:
    • Stanford staff can receive funding for down-payment support to purchase a home
    • Add the support from Landed to a personal down-payment contribution, for a combined 20% down
    • In exchange for the down-payment support, Landed shares in the equity gain (or depreciation loss) at the time the home is sold or refinanced, or when the mortgage term ends
    • When prospective homeowners have a 20% down payment, they typically qualify for lower mortgage interest rates and avoid costly Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) that lenders often apply to home loans with less than 20% down
    • The program accelerates the timeline to home ownership, enabling Stanford staff to benefit from tax deductions not available to renters
    • The down-payment support from Landed is not a loan, so it does not add to an employee’s debt and there are no monthly payments
    • The program supports the purchase of a primary residence
    • The program is not limited to first-time home buyers
  • Education and financial counseling regarding home buying:
    • Webinars and support to understand home buying options, such as how to make an offer, what contingencies are, how to close on your home, and more
