Deciding to go the homeFree Way: An Emotion-Filled Journey of a Family

By a homeFree Realty Customer

When life changes, often our homes need to as well. With four kids aged between 17 and 21, we foresaw the emptiness of our home approaching. However, an unexpected turn in our mortgage renewal terms – a leap from 1.85% to a shocking 7.25% interest rate – hurried our decision. Imagine our predicament when this translated to an extra $2000 on our monthly payments! With two children in university and another soon to follow, we were stuck between preserving our family home and securing our children’s futures.

Enter homeFree. For a family like ours, with remote working parents and education costs looming, the decision was clear. We needed flexibility in viewing times and a method to retain as much equity from our eight-bedroom dream house. University bills don’t pay themselves, after all.

The Listing Process: Easier Than We Imagined

Navigating to the homeFree website, we were pleasantly surprised. Following clear instructions, our listing was up, photos and all, in under an hour. The emotional weight of our decision hit us. Tears of uncertainty paired with laughter at the swiftness of it all. Before we knew it, our home graced the internet.

Imagine our delight when, the very next day, homeFree’s personalized signs were ready for our front yard. But the real surprise was still to come. Our home was spotlighted as homeFree’s feature listing on social media, making our first weekend live a whirlwind of attention. We appreciated the support during a bittersweet phase. The recent challenges with banks and the stressful plea for refinancing had drained us. Now, we needed simplicity, control, and the assurance of preserving the equity we worked so hard for.

Being HomeFree allowed us to navigate this transition on our terms, maintaining a sense of control during a tumultuous phase. Investing in our kids’ future while embarking on our new chapter as empty nesters feels right.

Most heartwarmingly, we’re eager to meet the new family. The ones who’ll soak in our memories and start weaving their own in our cherished abode.
