Your Home. Your Life.
A home is the most cherished asset most of us will ever own. It’s a place where your family grows and memories are created. We believe it should also be a life accelerator, giving you the means to seize new opportunities, achieve financial objectives or simply take charge of your future.
Life is full of unexpected twists that can bring disruption and uncertainty to your finances. Anyone seeking funding, whether to overcome adversity or pursue an opportunity, are forced to settle for antiquated options that no longer suit the modern homeowner. Banks and lenders qualify based on credit history and job type, making it impossible for nearly 25% of Americans to access their built-up home value, resulting in many having to sell their houses and move.
We believe everyone deserves financial stability and the ability to pursue opportunities, so we created new and innovative options. Say goodbye to banks, unfair qualifications, and loans with complicated language and hidden fees. Through our revolutionary sale-leaseback programs, you sell your house to EasyKnock, unlocking its value, while continuing to live in your home as a renter for as long as you’d like with the option to buy it back or move. We’re bringing both control and flexibility back into your life.
Ben Black is the Co-Founder and CIO of EasyKnock. Formerly the Executive Director at Morgan Stanley, a New York-based financial services firm, as well as the former Managing Director for Ladder Capital, a commercial real estate investment firm, Ben brings an extensive background in real estate investment and management. There, Ben witnessed the narrowing margin for Americans looking for typical financing options. In response, Ben decided to create a solution that disrupts a process that is no longer working for the American people. In partnership with Jarred Kessler, Ben has developed the first institutionalized sale-leaseback platform to help homeowners across the country access the money they need to reach their goals.

Having worked on Wall Street for years, Jarred saw the fundamental issues preventing Americans from accessing the money they need. He decided he was going to do something about that.
