Homewise has a clear vision: To provide people aged 60 and older with choice, by unlocking limited moving budgets and presenting solutions that enable them to have security for a happy retirement.
As the UK's leading provider of the "Home for Life Plan" (which can be applied to properties anywhere in England or Wales!) we are proud to work closely with industry experts across the nation. Together we provide solutions for customers and change lives every day.
Partnering with estate agents is key to helping movers; our partners include Andrew Craig, Arun Estates (Cubitt & West, Douglas Allen, Pittis, Wards), Bradleys Estate Agents, JW Wood, Lamb & Co, Lomond Group (Dale Eddison, Hardisty & Co, Julian Wadden, Linley & Simpson, Matthews of Chester, Thornley Groves), Paul Carr, Pygott & Crone, Relocation Agent Network (RAN), Richard James, Rush, Witt & Wilson, Stephenson Browne, Urban & Rural, and Webbers.
“Offering a home-moving solution for our customers in their latter years has proven to have changed so many of their lives for the better, securing financial peace of mind in their retirement. Not only that but Homewise supply us with hundreds of listing valuations a year and purchase many properties through Arun too. It’s a partnership that goes back to 2007 and one that we, they, and most importantly our customers truly benefit from.”Jon Holden, Arun Estates
“The help it gives the over 60’s to be able to move at a time when financially or health wise is such a fantastic service to be able to offer. I know personally a number of over 60’s who would be stuck in homes that are no longer right for them but feel they cannot move due to not having the budget. This gives us an additional service to offer more customers the opportunity to move, something most of our competitors cannot offer – a USP - and we earn extra money from providing this help.”Sam Dalton, Wards Estate Agents
“I like having the extra flexibility to help people with their finances and provide more options for their future. If their dream seems impossible then it may be possible with Homewise. It's the chance to make a difference to someone, so they can make an informed decision to achieve their goal. It’s a USP that other agents don’t have, with a wider audience to view our properties, there are more opportunities to further income, business, reputation and success stories.”Emma Ohlson-Page, Pittis Estate Agents

Market Plus is included in your standard vendor agreements for marketing properties and our system will post properties to online portals (such as Rightmove and Zoopla) if that property meets our criteria. It's as simple as that!
Note: Vendors can opt out and have the Homewise listing for their property removed at any time.
Put simply, the vendor's property is listed online at the market value with their local agent as normal and, with Market Plus, they have an additional advert showing a Home for Life Plan guide price for ages 60 and over. This is typically 33% less than the advertised market value.
The vendor won’t receive any less for their property if we purchase it for our customer though, we’re just like any other buyer and the vendor receives the full agreed selling price.
Market Plus provides an opportunity for vendors to double the exposure of their properties (for free!) and gain more interest, ultimately selling quicker in many cases.
Yes, there are filter options on Rightmove and Zoopla to exclude Homewise listings. By excluding 'retirement properties' this will stop the over 60s listings showing in search results.
The prospective buyer won't miss out on any properties being sold in their area, they'll just see the standard listing from the agent selling the property, at the full market price.
A Home for Life Plan is only available to those aged 60+ and may not be the ideal solution for everyone.
Yes, many of our partners have a commission agreement in place, whereby they may receive remuneration for a referral or introduction that results in a customer for Homewise.
