Housing Works

Rental Properties Needed

Invest in Your Community. Year- long studios, one and two bedroom properties needed.

Give your Summit County home a new purpose.

The high cost of living makes Summit County a difficult place to raise a family. Most locals cannot afford to purchase a home and depend on rental properties for housing. Short-term vacation rentals have significantly reduced the long-term rental inventory, which is causing many locals to leave Summit County. This is putting stress on businesses to hire qualified employees and reducing the year-round community that makes Summit County such a special place to live.

You can make a difference. The Housing Works Initiative helps owners use their properties as long-term rentals to benefit the community’s workforce.  By adding your home to the Housing Works Initiative you are helping working families realize their dreams of living in the mountains.

In order to qualify for the Housing Works program, you must be switching a property from a short-term rental into a long-term lease. This program is designed to support owners who are adding to the long-term rental inventory for the local workforce.

Property Owners who participate in the program receive:
