Sell & Stay

A Home Sale-Leaseback Program

What is a Home Sale-Leaseback?

With our sale-leaseback program - Sell & Stay, we buy your house, you get the money you need, while staying in your home. Lease your home for as long as you’d like, with the option to buy back the house or move at any point.

Benefits of Home Sale-Leasebacks

  • Get the money you need now

    With an average closing time of 2 weeks, we give you the money you need quickly. Get up to 70% of your home value in cash upfront, and the remaining 30% as an Option (see FAQ page for details).

  • Get flexibility for your future

    With the EasyKnock Option, you have the ability to buy back your house or move at any point. (If you ultimately decide to move, you will receive any additional value including appreciation, if applicable).  

  • Reduce your housing expenses

    During your lease, you only pay market rent. EasyKnock takes care of the property taxes and homeowners’ insurance.

  • We evaluate your whole picture

    Unlike lenders we can assist a wider range of credit scores and income types.

How Does Sell & Stay Work?

  1. We’ll review your information and see if any of our programs may be the right fit for you.

  2. An EasyKnock Specialist will contact you to learn about your goals and create a plan that’s right for you.

  3. Your EasyKnock Specialist will create an estimate that outlines the money you’ll receive, your option value, your monthly rent, and any other transaction details. 

  4. Once you review the estimate, we will make sure we’ve covered the bases, and all questions are answered to ensure your success in our program.

  5. We’ll send a purchase agreement for you to sign, which will initiate the due diligence process.

  6. We conduct an appraisal, an inspection of the property and a background check.

  7. All documents required to complete the sale and begin your lease are signed and notarized by a state-licensed title company.

  8. Once the title company completes the verification process, funds are transferred to your bank account. Once the funds are wired, the transaction is complete, and your lease begins. 

  9. Stay put as a renter of your home for as long as you’d like. 

  10. At any point, you can repurchase your house from EasyKnock or move.
