McCarthy & Stone Resales

McCarthy & Stone Resales is our specialist property service dedicated to supporting our customers if they wish to resell their retirement property. 

As the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, we made a clear break from the typical short-term focus of the housing sector in 2010 when we brought the management of our developments in-house and established our own care, support and property management teams.  This means we provide lasting relationships with our customers and look after our properties for the long term. 

As part of this long-term focus, our expert Resales teams are able to communicate all the benefits retirement living brings to prospective purchasers.

Support through Every Step of the Resales Journey

The combination of our Resales team’s expertise, and the local knowledge of McCarthy & Stone’s House Managers, means that we can offer existing retirement property owners access to a unique selling service. 

At the same time, those contemplating a purchase will be supported throughout all steps of the journey. 

When you also consider how our residents and resales customers frequently tell us that they know and appreciate that help and support is on hand if needed, it’s not surprising that we’ve received the following recognition:

  • A five-star rating by the Home Builders Federation for customer satisfaction for a record 14 consecutive years.
  • That 9 out of 10 customers say our properties improve their quality of life.
  • That 92% of residents recommend retirement living, according to the EAC. 

Our Positive Resale Value

Our improved service means that the resale performance of our managed developments built since 2010 is positive.  

According to this independent research  by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC), in 2019 it was confirmed that new retirement properties typically increase in value.  

In addition to this, our Resales service has seen a c.4% net price increase per sale for an average resale since its launch in 2017.
