Jeanie Logan – My Simple Life story

Jeanie Logan lives with her husband, their young son and two ‘four-legged friends’ at Simple Life’s Baytree Lane, Middleton. After years of bad rental experiences and the financial ties of home ownership, Jeanie and her family sought a life with more freedom.


Affording flexibility

“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”, Jeanie explained.

“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.”

After searching for a more flexible alternative, Jeanie’s husband suggested renting. “I was a little apprehensive at first”, Jeanie admits, “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.”


A simple solution

Jeanie and her family decided to rent a four-bedroom, semi-detached home at Baytree Lane. Their home has three bathrooms, including an en-suite, as well as a garden and large storage spaces.

“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”, Jeanie said.

“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.”

Baytree Lane is located within walking distance of Middleton town centre, close to amenities such as grocery shops, local swimming pool and Ofsted rated ‘outstanding’ and ‘good’ schools.

Tandle Hill Country Park is one of the many green spaces close to the development, as well as a number of local leisure facilities available such as North Manchester Golf Club and Radclyffe Athletics Centre.


Better lives with Simple Life

“The local area and location of our home is brilliant”, Jeanie added. “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!”

With a 12-month lease on her Simple Life property, Jeanie and her family have the peace of mind that their home won’t be sold. Knowing that a maintenance team is on hand if anything goes wrong has allowed the Logan family to focus on the more important things.

“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.”
