If you’re looking to enjoy the benefits of retirement living but are concerned about the costs and hassle of moving home, why not visit McCarthy & Stone?
During February and March, purchasers at McCarthy & Stone's retirement development Cwrt Hywel in Gorseinon, Swansea, can take advantage of the Move and Live Free for a Year scheme.
The package includes estate agent and solicitor fees paid, arrangement of your Home Information Pack, a free removals service to help with decluttering and packing up your existing property, plus free council tax, TV licence, contents insurance, electricity, water rates, telephone line and calls, service charge and ground rent for the first 12 months, courtesy of McCarthy & Stone.
Aileen King, sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone's south west division, said: “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 Cwrt Hywel 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.”
And for those who are struggling to sell their existing property, McCarthy & Stone can help get you moving with its part exchange and guaranteed purchase plan schemes.
Through part exchange, McCarthy & Stone will purchase your existing property at an agreed price, saving you the hassle of chains and 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.
Cwrt Hywel is a retirement development exclusively for the over 60s offering 54 contemporary one and two bedroom apartments. The development is situated on Alexandra Road, in the heart of Gorseinon on the outskirts of Swansea. The Gower Peninsula, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is located south west of Gorseinon and offers stunning beaches and scenery.
