A bit about us
Our aim is to revolutionise retirement in the UK. It's a rather grand statement, we know, but we want to give everyone, no matter what their circumstances, the chance to retire happy. To have the security of a safe home in a nice area. To be free from money worries. To have that garden for the dogs to run around in and those extra rooms for the grandchildren to stay in. Basically, we don't think anyone should be stuck in unsuitable housing, and we want to help. And with our team of property experts, sales specialists and customer service professionals, we've already changed the face of retirement for thousands of people across the UK.
Homewise so far
We've been specialising in home purchase options for the over 60s for more than forty years now. Back in 1971, Reg Neal noticed that several of his friends and colleagues were struggling to find suitable, affordable housing as they got older. The more he looked into it, the more it seemed to him that far too many people were stuck in unsuitable housing with unmanageable repayments, and with no way out.
So, he bought some houses for his friends, did them up, and charged a significantly reduced one-off fee to cover the costs. Nowadays, this is known as the Home for Life Plan. Homewise is still family-owned and run, with Reg's sons Mark, Justin and Sean taking over several years ago now.
We value honesty, originality, passion and empowerment.

It gave us the chance to move to a much better area without having to worry about finding the extra money.

Now I can go on holiday and that sort of thing without having to worry about money when I get back. First holiday in six years.
A very big thank you to all at Homewise. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
We were able to realise our dream of living in the area we love so much.
