Complex reports that Landis Technologies is a startup that seeks to guide renters on their way to buying a home.

Social media users shared mixed opinions on Jay and Will's involvement in the project. Check out some of the comments below:

@Hippieofluv said:

"I was denied again. At this rate the only way I will buy a home house with garden is winning the lottery. And that is slim to none."

@FreshCoast818 wrote:

"This is an excellent idea. Buying homes for people and let them build credit and down-payment. Then after two years, they purchase the homes from the VC. Are they even making a profit? How is this going to work? It is a little risky but it's cool to see them take that chance."

@Fresh_Mess13 commented:

"Man nice to see people with money doing something that will help others even if they are getting something out of it. Better than billionaires claiming they went to 'outerspace' for society."
