Why choose McCarthy Stone Shared Ownership?

On top of securing a luxury retirement apartment, there are plenty of additional benefits you can get with McCarthy Stone shared ownership.

  • You can make your purchase of an apartment more affordable. 
  • There’s flexibility with the percentage share of the property you choose to buy.
  • On purchases of 75% of the value of your apartment, there’s no rent on the outstanding share.
  • This approach can make it easier to manage your savings and investments. 

A spokesperson for McCarthy Stone, said: "The biggest benefit of living in a shared ownership property is that it offers a more affordable option to own a McCarthy Stone property when finances may otherwise get in the way.

“Residents who buy 75% of the value of the property will save a significant amount of money in comparison to others who are buying or renting in the area, as they are not only paying less towards the property but will also pay zero rent on the outstanding share.”
