Brad's story

Why Homewise?

Having been stuck in a property with negative equity for 11 years, Brad and his wife Carole had limited funds available for an onward purchase. They knew they could possibly afford a small flat, but their dream was to retire to a house with a garden.

With help from Homewise, the couple were able to find their ideal house in Newhaven with the perfect garden, exactly what they wanted for their retirement years.

Providing reassurance

At first Brad was a little apprehensive, concerned that a Home for Life Plan may be like equity release and he'd be charged compound interest.

After learning that the plan isn't a loan of any sort (and therefore he would be charged no interest at all) he realised this could be the ideal solution to help to change his life.

With the support of the Homewise team, Brad and Carole soon moved to their dream house in Newhaven.


Living the dream

With a Home for Life Plan, Brad and Carole were able to move into a beautiful Victorian terraced house, complete with a small garden, and are enjoying the comfortable retirement they always wanted.

Thanks to Homewise, Brad and Carole were able to...
