The Vacation Town Housing Problem

The dramatic growth of vacation destinations across America has caused massive housing shortages for the local residents. While most people only travel to these one-of-a-kind places for a temporary getaway, the permanent residents and seasonal employees who support these communities are struggling to find housing.

The Problem

Renting a vacation home short-term is easy, but finding a longer-term renter is much harder.

Vacant Homes

Many vacation homes sit vacant for the majority of the year while locals struggle to find housing.

What People Are Saying

Kai and Colin did a fantastic job helping us rent out our house. They helped us set a fair and competitive price for our rental and then found us several great possible tenants. They are super organized and responsive – highly recommend if you’re looking to rent out your house!



When our previous Truckee tenant had to postpone his move-out date until December of 2019, my wife and I faced the inherent challenges of renting in the middle of winter. After reaching out to Colin, he really hit the ground running and found us several quality tenants… We now have the kind of family anyone would want in their home, and huge thanks for that go to Colin and his company.



Besides the positive business outcome, I feel very good about facilitating the effort to provide housing to Tahoe workers and residents by working with Placemate. I think it will benefit the Tahoe economy and community to have residents be able to live where they work. Colin and Kai are terrific – they provided great advice, insight, and service. I would highly recommend them and would go back to them for my real estate needs in the future.
