We are also determined to provide positive resale values and protect the financial investment made by our customers.

We are pleased that our in-house Resales team achieves a net price increase on average for the properties they resell. For example, for properties bought new in the last three years and since resold, the net increase averages 6%.

McCarthy Stone are committed to a long-term relationship with their customers. That is why from 2010 McCarthy Stone have taken a series of measures to build a sustainable partnership with their residents that is focused on their ongoing wellbeing. These include:

  • We now operate every development we build, ensuring the level of service and quality of the scheme is kept at a very high standard.
  • We have integrated our services, development and landlord operations and obligations which helps to retain the value of our properties.
  • As we remain as the landlord and managing agent on all new developments, our customers do not have to deal with any third party.
  • We changed the length of our leases from 125-year leases to 999-years for all of our new apartments on developments launched for sale after 1 January 2015. This means customers do not need to worry about lease renewals.
  • We have set up an in-house Resales Team who are best placed to promote the benefits of living in a McCarthy Stone property and maintain a database of people interested in buying. This is part of our new long-term focus.
  • We have improved our products by providing more internal space, additional car parking and enhanced kitchens and bathrooms. We are also reviewing our services on a regular basis and now offer new ways to pay for the services we deliver.
  • We now offer much more tenure choice. In 2020, around a third of our new completions were for rent or part rent, part buy. We have also launched new partnerships with Anchor Hanover and Homes England to provide more affordable options and alternatives to outright purchase.
  • We offer a service charge deferment option to support our customers and their families when they come to resell.

Independent research carried out by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC) in 2019 confirmed that new retirement properties typically increase in value.
