About Us

We help homeowners achieve financial freedom through an innovative and modern equity release program

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

OUR MISSION

For those of you who love your homes but your down payment and all your mortgage payments are locked up and out of reach. Being cut off from your own equity is frustrating and unfair. What if there was another option, a better option? That’s where we come in. We’re EasyKnock. We’ve invented something so simple and yet so powerful you’ll wonder why no one came up with it before. (Actually, they did, but for commercial property owners. Now we’re bringing it to you). It’s called “Sell and Stay.” We buy your house at fair market value, and then we turn around and rent it to you so you can access your equity.

So nothing changes. Except everything. Now you have enough cash to live life the way you choose. Now you can pay for your kids’ college, a medical situation, a business opportunity, or pay off debts. We buy your house, you buy time.

WHAT WE DO

Our Sell and Stay program, the first residential sale leaseback program in the United States, is an alternative to traditional equity release and refinancing programs. Our program enables homeowners to access their equity without having to move. With Sell and Stay, homeowners have the flexibility to repurchase their home or move at any point.

WHY WE DO IT

Homeownership is the pinnacle of the American Dream. But when it comes time to work with a bank to access one's equity, that dream can start to morph into something that resembles a nightmare. Roughly 25% of Americans are disqualified from refinancing because they don’t fall within the strict confines of the bank's ideal candidate.

We created Sell and Stay to be the antidote to that. Where lenders see numbers, we see people. Sell and Stay is an equity release program that allows homeowners to tap into the equity they’ve built to take whatever next step life is asking of them.

"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."

"EasyKnock solved my client’s problem. Instead of sell-move-rent-move again, Sell and Stay was a perfect fit for my client!"

"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."
