Your Retirement Move is Safe in Our Hands 

The loss of a loved one is such an emotional experience for the family without the added stress of them being faced with selling their home. But if you need to sell your property, McCarthy Stone Resales can take care of everything.

A Resales Case Study

Rhoda, aged 86, moved to Bilberry Place in Bromsgrove to be closer to her daughter Sue. Sue says: “She was enjoying making new friends and the convenience of being so close to town meant she was very active.”

Sadly, Rhoda fell poorly very suddenly and her time at Bilberry Place was cut short. Sue never thought she would have to be selling her mother’s property so soon.

Understandably during such a loss, the thought of selling a property is an unwelcome burden. Sue turned to our dedicated, in-house resales service and was relieved to have the support she needed with McCarthy Stone Resales taking care of everything. An effective and reliable service gave Sue complete peace of mind that everything was in hand.

“The whole process was extremely efficient and we had viewings lined up more or less straight away. The great thing was that the House Manager took care of everything.”



The House Manager’s knowledge of the development and the area as well as the facilities and lifestyle meant she was uniquely placed to communicate all the benefits to potential buyers and open their eyes to a whole new world of possibility.

“Buyers want to know about the social activities, how the restaurant operates, they want to be introduced to some of the current residents and get a real feel for the place; and this needs to be done by someone who truly understands their needs and abilities.”

Three months later the property was off the market. A single lady, helped by a relative, bought the property and Sue was delighted that someone else could benefit from Bilberry Place like her mother had.

Resales Director, David Gabriel said: “We were really pleased to achieve such a hassle-free result for Sue and her family. It is always very upsetting when a close relative passes away so suddenly and having to deal with their estate can be a very daunting and stressful task.”
