MoveAbility, The Better Way To Move

By Tom Burchnell

EasyKnock’s new product, MoveAbility, allows homeowners to convert their home equity and stay put for up to a year, providing time and money for down payments, upgrades, and whatever else life may have up its sleeve.

We all know the virtues of homeownership: pride, stability, and perhaps most importantly, building equity. Building equity is great, but what happens when you want to use that equity for something else, like a down payment on your next home? Or installing new flooring to boost its value? Getting cash for that is… not easy. That’s where EasyKnock comes in.

EasyKnock provides new solutions for homeowners looking to tap into their equity now, without having to leave their homes and immediately go through a costly and time-sucking move. Our latest product, MoveAbility, is a sale-leaseback program designed specifically for homeowners who need cash to buy their next home, need extra time to sell, or want to take a bit longer to find their forever home. With MoveAbility, you get access to up to 75% of your home’s value while paying rent to EasyKnock for up to a year. Finally, you can finance your next move smoothly, without being rushed as you make one of the most critical decisions for you or your family.

Get Cash. Shed Stress. Stay Put.

Before MoveAbility, high-interest bridge loans were the primary solution for homeowners who needed cash for a downpayment before their house sold. This meant dealing with traditional lenders and expedited moving timelines. We knew there had to be another way for homeowners to tap into the equity they’ve diligently earned, and that’s when MoveAbility was born.

MoveAbility eliminates the stress of the typical home selling and buying process by letting homeowners use their equity the way they should be able to. In 13 days, you can tap up to 75% of your home’s equity to better manage your next home purchase, without having to relocate at a break-neck pace. Place a downpayment on a new home, spruce up your landscaping, or upgrade your kitchen, all on your timeline and without racking up new debt. Once you’re ready to get moving for real, we’ll work with a realtor of your choice to get your home listed at its proper market value.

The New Industry Leader

More than ever, homeowners are looking for options that aren’t tied to traditional models and large, anonymous banks. Seeking greater control and more transparency, they’ve turned to companies like EasyKnock in search of new ways to boost their buying power. While many other iBuyers have popped up over the years, MoveAbility offers the kind of unprecedented control and options the others don’t. Here’s why:

Keep More of Your Money 

Other web-based sale-leaseback programs are looking to make a significant profit, at the cost of the seller. From initial fees that range between 6-13%, and sale offers that come in up to 20% under market value, selling your home on the spot comes at a huge cost. With MoveAbility, you don’t have to leave money on the table. To tap your home’s equity, you’ll pay 1.5% of your home’s market value, and then rent for each month you stay in your home: no tricks, no nonsense, no hidden fees. We pride ourselves on transparency with our customers, so we keep everything out in the open.

Supercharge Your Finances 

With more money in your pocket, you can invest in your home by making useful upgrades that boost your eventual sale price. Even more, since your mortgage will be paid, you’ll get more favorable terms on your next mortgage application. With MoveAbility, you boost your finances and your buying power, without taking on new debts from a faceless big bank.

We Move Fast So You Don’t Have To

 Other iBuyers can take up to 30 days. Listing your home on the market can take months, depending on the time of year. You don’t have to be at the mercy and whims of the market. We’ll get you your cash in 13 days so you can get moving on your forever home or start making the upgrades you’ve been putting on hold for months, without having to move into a rental property in the meantime.

Take Your Time 

Most of our competitors will only let you stay in your home for up to three months (if that) once you’ve sold your house to them. Depending on your family’s needs and what the market looks like in your region, that may not be enough time to find the right home. That could lead to another rental, and, even worse, another move. Skip all that with MoveAbility. You can stay in your home for up to 18 months while looking for your next dream home with funds for your next down payment. It’s an unprecedented level of control and flexibility designed to help real people make real changes in their lives, without any strings to get tied in.

Take the Next Step with MoveAbility

Getting started is simple! Take a few minutes to fill out our form so we can assess your home’s value and confirm the status of your mortgage. From there, we’ll put together a customized agreement, and you’ll have your cash in 13 days.

Still have questions? We’re here to answer them! Reach out to us to set up a call and we can walk you through the entire process. There’s no need to be at the mercy of tradition. Take control of your equity with MoveAbility.
