Our Story

We're on a mission to make home ownership in cities affordable.

We started Loftium in 2016 after experiencing how hard it is to buy a home in the city where you live and work. We were seeing a pattern: our friends who were able to buy all received help from their family, while those without help were out of luck. It turns out this is true across the country - with skyrocketing student debt and rent prices at historic levels, even people with steady income are increasingly unable to save enough for a down payment.

Being long-time Airbnb hosts, we saw a solution. As a homeowner, you can host short-term travelers and access a significant, reliable income stream (and meet great people in the process!) But until now, there's been no way to access that income if you don't already own. That's where Loftium comes in. We're leveling the playing field with a new category of home-buying assistance that's available to anyone who wants to take their future into their own hands.
