Read a little about us, our mission and how it all began...
We've been specialising in home purchase options for the over 60s for nearly 50 years, and 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.
We want to give everyone the chance to have the security of a safe home in a nice area. To be free from financial worries. To have that garden for the dogs to run around in and those extra rooms for the grandchildren to stay in.
How it all began
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 Reg 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.
The Home for Life Plan
So Reg bought some houses, did them up and sold them to his friends at a reduced price. Nowadays, this is known as the Home for Life Plan. The Homewise team have helped thousands of people over the past forty years, and continue to do so. Visit our Home for Life Plan page to learn how we could help you.
