Through Part Exchange*, McCarthy & Stone will purchase your existing property at an agreed price, saving you the hassle of chains, delays and estate agents’ fees. To qualify for the scheme, you’ll be asked to answer a few simple questions about your current home and McCarthy & Stone will then arrange for three valuations before making an offer for the property.

Alternatively, with McCarthy & Stone’s Guaranteed Purchase Plan*, the developer will help find a buyer for your existing property within 12 weeks at an agreed price. The retirement developer will then market your existing property through selected estate agents and if a realistic offer is received below the agreed selling price, you can still accept the offer because McCarthy & Stone will guarantee to make up the shortfall!

Aileen King, sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone South West, commented: “Moving home can be a daunting process at any age, which is why we do everything we can to help make the process as smooth and as stress free as possible. The big advantages of moving to a retirement development like Olde Market Court is it provides a real sense of security and companionship. It also enables you to retain home ownership as there are a number of features built into our apartments to help you maintain your independence as you get older.”

Olde Market Court is located on Fair Park Road and offers 50 one and two bedroom retirement apartments. Each comprises an open plan lounge and dining room, adjoining kitchen, one or two double bedrooms and a bathroom.

Design features include 24 hour emergency call points, electrical sockets at a raised height to reduce bending, illuminated light switches, a video entry system, easy grip lever taps in the bathroom and kitchen and energy efficient heating. Residents at Olde Market Court can also enjoy beautiful gardens, socialise and relax in the communal lounge and invite family or friends to stay in the development’s guest suite.

There are currently only two 2-bedroom apartments left at the development so if you’re looking for the extra space a two bedroom property affords, hurry to make sure you don’t miss out! A wide selection of one bedroom apartments is still available.
