Is it more expensive to live in one of your apartments than my current home?
Many of our homeowners are pleased to find that the service charges for their apartment tend to work out at less than what they were paying in like-for-like costs at their previous property.
Energy bills often turn out to be lower thanks to the modern construction methods we use at all our developments. Your new apartment is also likely to be a more manageable size and so cheaper to run.
When Customers discuss the purchase of a McCarthy Stone apartment with us, they receive a service charge leaflet and our Sales Executive sits down with them to help them fill in the costs, review what is covered in the management services and compare them to day-to-day running costs in their current home. Our Sales Executive ensures that they have a detailed knowledge of ongoing costs before a sale is completed
How long from putting down a deposit do I have to purchase the apartment?
Usually this can take between 12 to 16 weeks. We understand that some customers may have a time period that will more suitable for them and we aim to be as flexible as we can.
We have an expert resales team for people selling our retirement properties, with an extensive database of customers waiting to move in. This helps us to sell faster and at a better price than traditional estate agents. On average the McCarthy Stone Resales team achieve a net price increase on the retirement properties they sell.
