About Us

We help homeowners achieve financial freedom through an innovative and solutions for accessing their home value

"We exist to create financial opportunities out of financial pressures, bringing flexibility and freedom to homeowners through innovation and understanding."

OUR MISSION

Life is fluid, and many times unexpected. People find themselves navigating new and unexpected roads needing to adjust their finances to accommodate these changes. Whether starting a new business, sending kids off to college, paying down debt, our products empower people to make meaningful life decisions on their terms while remaining in the comfort of their own home. We want homeowners to achieve the financial freedom they deserve.

WHAT WE DO

Our Sell & Stay product offers an alternative method of accessing home value to traditional home equity line of credits (HELOCs) and reverse mortgages without the challenges associated to qualify. Sell & Stay is the first product in the USA allowing homeowners to sell their home, accessing the money they need and remain in their home as a tenant. People have the ability and flexibility to repurchase their home or move at any time, releasing the full value of their home.

WHY WE DO IT

Millions of Americans are property rich, but cash challenged. As a result of the credit crisis, lenders have strict requirements that disqualify homeowners from refinancing. Without viable alternative options, homeowners are forced to sell their homes and move. People deserve the chance to establish financial stability. We created Sell & Stay to provide homeowners with a new way to access their home value, without having to move, or who aren’t ready to move.

"EasyKnock helped me when no one else would. I had a lot of equity in my home and I needed access to this equity to handle business expenses. The EasyKnock team went above and beyond, I had a phone number that I was able to call at anytime, throughout the whole process communication was prioritized and excellent."

"Through Sell & Stay, EasyKnock purchased our house, and we now have the money to build our new home. We can stay in our current house until our new home is ready. The people at EasyKnock are honest and easy to work with.” If you need the equity out of your home but aren’t ready to move, EasyKnock’s your answer."

"My experience with EasyKnock was 5 stars from start to close. I was property rich, yet credit score poor due to some bumps and bruises along the way. Sell and Stay was a godsend for me – it allowed me to release the equity in my home. On top of getting a fresh start on life, I didn’t have to put my teenage daughters through the stress of moving."
