Take the pain out of selling your home with Part Exchange

With our Part Exchange service; we’ll guarantee to buy your property, meaning you’ll have a less stressful experience when selling your home.

Introducing the concept of Part Exchange.

When you’ve chosen your new home, McCarthy and Stone can buy your existing property in a part exchange process. This will allow you to avoid estate agents’ fees, organising viewings, and the dreaded property chain. Part Exchange will make your selling process simpler, and you could be moving into your new home before you know it!

Greater flexibility

Our Part Exchange scheme applies to most types of residential property, regardless of whether the new apartment you’ve chosen costs more or less. Even though Part Exchange means you will sell your old home quickly, we completely understand that you need time to prepare for the move. So, a major benefit of our service is that you can retain access to the property you sell for up to two weeks following completion on your new apartment. This can take away the stress of having to move out and move in all on the same day.

Of course, we can’t guarantee you won’t get a better price for your property on the open market, but many customers find that the time, expense and hassle they save with Part Exchange makes it their preferred option.

Save on repairs and decoration

Another huge benefit of selling via Part Exchange is that it saves you from having to carry out any of the repairs and redecoration that Estate Agents often say are necessary for showing your home at its best for viewings. If you do decide to sell your property yourself, we can still help you with every step of moving into your new McCarthy & Stone home.

Move into your new home in three easy steps

Step one: Simply tell us which beautiful new retirement apartment you’ve set your heart on. We then arrange for one of our trusted Part Exchange partners to visit you. They’ll instruct a RICS (Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) survey and for independent, local Estate Agents to value your property.

Step two: When we receive a suggested purchase price we’ll discuss this with you so you can decide if you’re happy to sell. If you are, you’ll be free to make a reservation on your new apartment from as little as £500. All our valuations are free, so you can see if the offer suits you before deciding how you want to sell your property. There’s no obligation.

Step three: If you accept our Part Exchange offer, all that’s left to do is for us to work with your legal representatives to finalise the contracts. To help make this process even easier, we’ll help pay towards your solicitor’s fees*.
