Cut Your Cost of Living with McCarthy Stone

Concerned about the rising cost of living? Don’t compromise! McCarthy Stone can help you cut your costs and still enjoy the lively lifestyle you deserve.

Did you know? The average energy bill saving from moving to a new build home is up to a staggering £435 a year* and our research shows you could save £2,300 per year** on household costs in a McCarthy Stone retirement apartment when compared to a typical home.***

That’s because all our retirement apartments are well-insulated, warm and energy-efficient. Plus, you’ll likely benefit from cheaper heating, water and other utility bills, including Council Tax.

Stay warm – and safe

As well as being well-insulated and energy-efficient, all our new retirement properties have the latest safety and security features built in. You’ll benefit from a 24-hour emergency call system, fire detection and door camera entry, so you can see who it is before answering the door. You’ll also have the reassurance of a manager onsite.

Budgeting is easier

Our service charges mean you have one payment each month that covers a multitude of everyday services, making budgeting a breeze. You also enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you won’t be hit by large, unexpected maintenance bills. We work hard to keep charges as low as possible and many homeowners find they pay less than they did for similar services in their old home.

For instance, all maintenance and upkeep of building exteriors, communal areas and gardens is included and is taken care of by gardeners, window cleaners, decorators etc. You’ll benefit from loads of extra amenities and services too, designed to make retirement more enjoyable.

Money-saving homeowner perks

Our buying power means we can negotiate harder for services than individuals can, which means our homeowners enjoy special offers just for being part of the community. These include deals on Sky television and broadband, free supermarket deliveries that can be arranged over the phone and cheaper car club membership and car hire, so there’s no need to keep paying for all the running costs of owning a car.

And finally …you can’t put a price on a happier life

Without the worry of high energy bills, you’ll have more time to focus on enjoying your retirement.

“We are so glad we made the move!”
“We have lived our new life for a while now and are enjoying it immensely.”
“Utopia! Its absolutely fantastic”.

Most of our homeowners say they wish they’d made the move sooner – and that’s priceless!
