NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EasyKnock, the nation’s first institutionalized residential sale-leaseback company, today announced to its agent partners an offering that enables homeowners to sell their home, and remain in it rental payment-free until they find their dream home. The service enables the homeowner to leverage their equity as a payment, so that they are effectively living without out-of-pocket expenses during their transition period. Agents nationwide are bringing options to help homeowners capitalize on market highs without rushing into another purchase.
By postponing rent and having it come out of the sale proceeds, customers gain access to cash, time and flexibility, which are often lost in the typically stressful sales process. This provides them with a valuable grace period in which they can remain undisturbed while they enjoy the process of shopping for a new home.
“Many Americans are coming to agents to take advantage of the strong housing market right now,” said Jarred Kessler, CEO and Founder, EasyKnock. “However, it’s also not an ideal time to move. While Americans want to capitalize on the demand, their stability remains the priority. This product provides an opportunity for both. We hope that through this solution, it will be easier for homeowners to downsize, upgrade or re-locate on their own terms.”
Agents are already using the offer to grow their business and help their customers navigate challenges like downsizing, getting their home ready for listing and timing the market for the most return. Agents and homeowners are able to collaborate for a more successful sale.
"The rent deferral option makes the EasyKnock program a consideration where other programs can’t compete,” said Rob Kittle, President & Owner, Kittle Real Estate. “EasyKnock has done a wonderful job at making the moving process stress-free. Many homeowners are hesitant to explore selling right now, and the EasyKnock program eliminates many of their concerns. I think if more homeowners knew about their program they would be more willing to capitalize on the current buyer demand!"
