Easyknock buys your home, pays off your mortgage, liens, and other recorded indebtedness, and releases your home equity back to you. You continue to live in your home as a renter.
You tell us about your situation (ie; past-due mortgage payments, you want to move but need the finances to do that, you want to start a new business). We create an agreement that meets your financial needs and time frame (lease length).
The Smiths own a house worth $240,000 and they have a mortgage balance of $80,000. They want to invest money into starting a new business, but they are behind on their mortgage and have a below average credit score.
EasyKnock will pay a first installment of $120,000 for the Smith’s home. $80,000 will pay off the mortgage and the remaining $40,000 goes directly to the Smiths. The Smiths continue to live in their home and pay rent for 2 years. At any time during the lease term they can decide to buy the house back for $130,000 or request it be listed and sold at market value. If listed and sold, the Smiths would then receive the net sale proceeds over $130,000.

Sell and Stay solved our problem. We wanted to move but don’t know where. EasyKnock bought our home and now we have the cash and the time to look for our next home.

Easyknock’s plan is fantastic. Clients who needed to consolidate debt had no luck with mortgage companies. Sell and Stay is exactly what they needed.

I’m a real estate agent. EasyKnock was the key to my client’s problem. Sell and Stay was the right move – without having to move!
- Terry, Indiana Real Estate Agent
I had no idea this was an option. Genius. Great people to work with. My wife was terrified to think of selling and moving right now, instead we have a 2 year lease and plenty of time to find a home near our grandkids.
