Despite a few hesitations initially, this resident offers her review of how Simple Life could offer a relaxed, care-free place to live and enjoy being a family without the worries of home ownership.

Meet Jeanie

For Jeanie and her family, including husband and son plus two dogs, they thought of renting as a temporary solution before buying again. But the Simple Life experience has already encouraged them to stay for longer.

“My husband and I had owned a home for the last 13 years. We wanted a change but didn’t want to commit to owning a second-hand home or rush into buying again. As we’re still a young family, we wanted to travel with our son. However, there were things going wrong with our home, such as leaking pipes, and it was costing a fortune. We needed a home that was worry-free and gave us more freedom to enjoy to life.

“I was a little apprehensive at first as I’d lived in rented accommodation in the past and had some problems with stolen post and poor-quality, unsafe appliances. However, after searching on the internet, we came across Simple Life and its brand-new rental homes. It just seemed perfect.

“I’m used to rental homes being low-quality, but everything here is high-spec and brand new. We’ve got high-quality integrated appliances and soft grey carpets. We all love it. Simple Life has been great at every stage and the move was just so easy. They really seem to care. We even received a welcome pack with all the essentials when we moved in and it’s the little things like that that make all the difference.

“If you need any help, you know you can call the maintenance team and they’ll be out to fix any issues, free of charge, and that’s a huge benefit to us. The local area and location of our home is brilliant. In fact, it’s even made me more active. As we’re so close to the train station, I’m walking and getting the train to work, which means no more stressful traffic. With the area being so pleasant, and the canal just near our street, I’ve also started running too!

“We no longer have the worry of something costly happening and this has changed our lives. We initially planned to rent for 12 months but we’ve already extended this to three years. Renting a new home with Simple Life has given us the flexibility we need to be able to do things like travel with our son. We can truly enjoy our lives now.”
