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.

Things to do in Exeter, Devon
Exeter is one of the prettiest cities in the UK and sits in a prime location close to some of the most spectacular countryside and coast that this country has to offer. It’s no wonder it’s a popular destination for retirement living.
This ancient city dates back to Roman times - there are even Roman walls to walk around, and it’s rich in history, culture, cobbled streets and quaint or impressive listed buildings, like the iconic gothic Exeter Cathedral.
There are lots of interesting things to do and see in Exeter , from the fascinating Underground Passages to the award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery and popular Exeter Northcott Theatre. You’ll find quirky independent shops on the gorgeous Gandy Street and big brands at the Guildhall Shopping Centre, whereas the attractive Quayside offers a wealth of modern restaurants, shops, bars and public spaces for festivals.
Topsham is a short drive away with a wide range of pubs and eateries to explore on the banks of the Rive Exe – you can even take in a wine tour at Pebblebed Vineyard. And if you fancy some sea air, the beautiful sandy beach at Exmouth is just a half hour drive or train trip away. Exmouth Beach is the gateway to the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is on the South West coastal path too.
