McCarthy Stone Resales sold Paul's parents' home quickly and for the full asking price

When Paul Howell came to sell his late parents' retirement apartment in Longwell Green, Bristol, he sought the specialist expertise of our in-house resales team. Within a few short weeks they were able to support Paul in finding a buyer swiftly, securing a full asking price offer and an 18% increase from when the property was originally purchased.

Resales Property Consultant, Georgie Kedge [Pictured left with House Manager Marie Purnell] worked with House Manager, Marie to secure the sale and says, “We were delighted to help Paul and his family achieve a satisfactory result. Our resales service is designed to target our audience, and this really helps support swift sales for our customers.”

“Another unique benefit of our resales service is how we work hand in hand with House Managers, like Marie at Cabot Court. They are fundamental to the running of the development and are the best people to show our potential buyers around the development. Marie is very supportive of resales and has been critical in helping secure this sale for Paul.”

Paul's story 

Paul says, "My parents were one of the first homeowners to move into Cabot Court when it opened in 2011. I’m pleased to say they both enjoyed many happy years there.

"Sadly, my mum passed away in 2018 and my father in 2023. Once probate was granted, my sister and I set about finding an estate agent to help sell the two-bed apartment. We invited several agents to value the property, but we instructed McCarthy Stone Resales, due to their expert knowledge of retirement properties. Plus, the House Manager - who conducted all the viewings - knew everything about Cabot Court and the community there, so we thought they were best placed to help sell the property.

“We were pleased with how swiftly the Resales team were able to find a buyer for the apartment and were satisfied with the price achieved.”

Commenting on the sale, Marie said; “I love to see our development full, as this really helps create a vibrant community, which is why resales is so important. It’s wonderful to welcome new homeowners to Cabot Court and see how much they benefit from living here.”
