How Homewise helped

For Ron and Val, the Home for Life Plan was simply a way for them to be nearer to their sons. Living in an apartment in Cromer, Norfolk, they were a five-hour journey from London where their two sons live and work, and with London prices being what they are, the South Coast with its transport links and beautiful surroundings was the perfect choice.

Why the Home for Life Plan?

Unfortunately, they were facing a shortfall and being retired their options for finance were limited, as former bank manager Ron knew only too well. Using the Home for Life Plan, Ron and Val were able to increase their budget and buy a beautiful bungalow in Worthing.

Life after Homewise

Now, their family visit regularly, they’re part of a vibrant community and proud owners of a beach hut on Worthing seafront.

It’s like getting your life back. We have some lovely times, which we could not have had without Homewise.
