Placemate’s 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.
