Over 60s living in Hampshire and looking to downsize can now take advantage of a new scheme available at McCarthy & Stone’s Assisted Living Catherine Court development in Eastleigh and ensure they enjoy a hassle-free move this summer.

The new initiative*, which is available to those buying selected apartments at the development on Leigh Road aims to sell the purchaser’s existing home at a pre-agreed price within 12 weeks and covers many of the costs associated with the sale. If a realistic offer is made below the guaranteed selling price, McCarthy & Stone will simply make up the difference, enabling the sale to proceed. The scheme could also save sellers thousands of pounds, as McCarthy & Stone will pay the estate agent and solicitor fees and will even help with the move.

Aileen King, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy and Stone, comments: “Selling your home in the current market can be an expensive and time-consuming process and there’s no guarantee that you’ll get the offer you need. With our new initiative, we will help every step of the way, marketing your existing home, free of charge, through an independent estate agent and actively monitoring the sale to ensure everything runs smoothly. It’s the kind of peace of mind that you simply can’t get when you sell your property in the usual way.” McCarthy & Stone is currently selling a range of one and two bedroom retirement apartments at Catherine Court. The Assisted Living scheme is designed for those requiring a little more help and support in later life, with additional facilities such as a waitress service restaurant and flexible services including personal care and domestic assistance.
