Guide to Buying

Your three-step journey to a new home.

Deciding to move home is an exciting moment. But the process can be daunting, regardless of how many times you’ve done it before. Our friendly team are determined to help make your move go as smoothly as possible. So, we’ve created this three-step guide to help get you started.

 

STEP 1 FIND A HOME YOU LOVE.

The first step is to look for a home that ticks all your boxes. You can search all our available resale properties here.

All our developments are well-placed with local amenities and essential transport links within easy reach. When you spot a property you like, simply request a viewing or call our team to find out more.

We have everything in place to ensure all visits are carried with safety as our highest priority. View our safety guidelines to find out what you can expect when you visit one of our developments.

 

STAY UP TO DATE ON OUR DEVELOPMENTS.

You might know of a McCarthy Stone development in your area that is currently sold out. It’s a good idea to let us know you’re interested. We can then keep you fully informed when properties do become available. Click here to register your interest.  

STEP 2. MAKE IT YOURS.

Once you’ve chosen your ideal property, all you need to do is make an offer with one of our Property Consultants. They will then work with you and our dedicated Sales Progressor to make the process as straightforward as possible.

We can also put you in touch with one of our Conveyancing specialists who knows our developments well and can help your purchase go through as smoothly as possible.

 

NEED TO SELL? WE CAN BUY IT.

This is where we act as a cash buyer on your property, so your sale will be guaranteed. So, no chain, no estate agent fees and free removals.

EXPERT ENTITLEMENT ADVICE.

According to Age UK and CAB, retired people in the UK fail to claim over £3.5bn a year to which they may be entitled*. So, when you’re ready to buy, our Entitlements Advisor can offer support and advice to help you understand which allowances you may be able to claim and how much financial support you could receive. Find out more. 

 

STEP 3. MOVING IN.

The easier the move, the sooner you can start doing more of the things you love. Our removal experts can make all the difference on moving day – from decluttering to unpacking your boxes, they can take care of everything for you, so you can sit back and relax.

Our safety guidelines ensure we welcome all new homeowners safely to our development. View our latest guidelines here.

 

ENJOY YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

With the move complete, you can start to enjoy living life your way. Meet your new neighbours, explore the area and make the most of everything your community has to offer. After all, time well spent is a life, well lived.
