Loftium is now launched in Greater Seattle to help with your down payment!

We are so excited to introduce all of Greater Seattle to Loftium! Loftium provides you with down payment funds in exchange for a share of future Airbnb income. Homebuyers who need Loftium’s down payment help simply agree to rent out a spare bedroom and split the income with us for 12-36 months after buying their new home.

Loftium has been working with Umpqua Bank to bring our down payments to Seattle homebuyers, and we are excited to continue that work from Everett and Lynnwood in the North to Tacoma, Puyallup in the South to Redmond, Bothell, and Snoqualmie in the East.  If you’re looking to buy a primary residence home (not an investment property) in Greater Seattle, Loftium can offer up to $50,000 (not to exceed 10% down) on a conventional mortgage. Best of all, Loftium does not have income limits or home price restrictions.

Here’s how it works:

  • You choose the home, qualify for the loan amount with Umpqua Bank, and put at least 1% toward the down payment.
  • Loftium will estimate the income potential of renting the home’s spare bedroom on Airbnb and will then offer a lump-sum prepayment to use toward the remaining down payment.
  • In exchange, you’ll be required to list a bedroom(s) on Airbnb and manage the rental process for a fixed period of time, ranging 12-36 months.

Benefits to the homebuyer:

  • Only 1% down payment is required by the homebuyer.
  • Homebuyer will receive approximately 10%-40% of the Airbnb income each month.
  • Loftium provides a starter supply kit, software, pricing and support in kickstarting your Airbnb hosting!

This down payment assistance is not a loan, financing, or other extension of credit to the purchaser. The homebuyer must still meet the lending requirements of Umpqua Bank.

Super efficient cleaning – getting it done in under an hour

After hosting for a period of time we’ve narrowed down our cleaning to-do list so it’s as easy and efficient as possible. We even provide quick-drying linens to reduce the amount of time spent waiting next to the dryer. Should you decide to hire a cleaner, this is a great resource for onboarding them to your Airbnb, too.

Here is our cleaning run-down after a guest checks-out and takes under one hour.

  1. Remove the used linens & toss in washer on fastest setting.Linens to launder: sheets, pillowcases, duvet/comforter cover and towels.  
  2. Put clean linens out while the washer runs the dirty ones.  You don’t have to wait for the washing to finish Loftium because sends you 3 sets of linens – you’ll always have a clean set ready to go!
  3. Vacuum the guest room, bathroom and common areas.
  4. Move the finished, wet sheets and towels to the dryer and run “Quick Dry” dry cycle.
  5. Wipe down the bathroom counter, toilet and shower.
  6. Check bathroom toiletries for fullness, replace/refill anything that’s running low.
  7. Take the bedroom and bathroom trash out.
  8. Take the dry sheets and towels out of the dryer, fold and place them in the closet.


Once a month, we recommend a deep cleaning of the bathroom and bedroom. Given you’re doing the above between guests the monthly “deep clean” should be super easy.
