April 9, 2019, Press Release – Knox Financial Announces Mortgage and Insurance Partners

Partnerships with Own Up and Stanton Insurance focus on providing Knox customers with best-in-class home financing and investment property insurance  

April 9, 2019 — Knox Financial, a fintech company that is democratizing access to investment property ownership by making it easy to turn a home you’re moving out of into an income unit, today announced that it has partnered with Own Up and Stanton Insurance. These partnerships enable Knox to offer its customers best-in-class solutions for securing mortgages and investment property insurance through the Knox Frictionless Ownership Platform.

“For homeowners who are ready to move, Knox is committed to helping them build long-term wealth, far beyond what they would if they put their homes up for sale,” said Dave Fridman, CEO and co-founder of Knox. “We thought a lot about this commitment as we were building the Knox Frictionless Ownership Platform, and it was important to us that we partner with companies who share our mission of helping homeowners make sound financial decisions.”  

Knox Financial’s partners include:

Own Up

Own Up offers a new approach to help people get the lowest rates on their mortgages. Own Up has built a model that aligns its interests with those of its customers, allowing the company to be truly objective when assessing each mortgage loan applicant’s options. Own Up’s customers save an average of $21,000 over the life of their loan. As part of their partnership with Knox, Own Up will help Knox customers secure mortgages on their new homes when they are ready to move.

Stanton Insurance

Stanton Insurance is an independent agency based in Waltham, MA that provides auto insurance, personal insurance and business insurance to residents and businesses throughout Massachusetts. Founded in 1907, the company is made up of a highly educated team who stays on top of industry trends to bring customers superior insurance coverage at an affordable price. Knox is partnering with Stanton Insurance to provide insurance for Knox customers’ investment properties.

“Putting homeowners’ best interests first is a core value of both Own Up and Knox,” said Mike Tassone, COO and co-founder of Own Up. “We’re confident that Knox customers will appreciate the transparency, honesty, and simplicity we bring to the process of finding a mortgage.”  

For homeowners who are ready to move or landlords who no longer wish to manage their properties, Knox allows them to choose a wealth-building alternative to selling their properties. The Knox Frictionless Ownership Platform features a simple and hands-free process for turning a home into an income property, managing that income property, and securing the appropriate financing for a new home. Once a home is enrolled in the Knox program, the homeowner receives a payment each quarter as a passive investor while continuing to own 100% of the equity in the home.

The Knox Frictionless Ownership Platform is currently available to qualified homeowners in the Greater Boston area at www.knoxfinancial.com.
