Part Exchange

After you have chosen the perfect resale apartment to suit your new retirement lifestyle, McCarthy & Stone offers a part-exchange scheme for your current property.

In referring you to a specialist company, the process of selling your existing house becomes straightforward and hassle free. Not only will you be avoiding a dreaded property chain, but you won’t need to pay estate agent fees. By part-exchanging, you can sell your existing property quickly and easily, and you’ll be in your resale McCarthy & Stone apartment before you know it.

Greater flexibility

Greater flexibility, making your move that bit easier

Our part-exchange scheme can be offered to any type of residential property, whether your resale apartment is worth more or less than your current property.

We know that when it comes to something as significant as moving home, nothing can be rushed and you need time to prepare for the move. That’s why with our part-exchange service you can continue to access your old home for up to two weeks after completion on your McCarthy & Stone apartment. So there’s no need for the stress and strain of having to move out and move in all on the same day.

While we naturally can’t guarantee that your existing property won’t sell for a better price on the open market, the time saved, lack of stress and flexibility in the part-exchange scheme makes it the clear choice for many customers.

Before you move

Before you move

By signing up to our part-exchange scheme, McCarthy & Stone not only take the stress out of the buying and selling process, but we aim to make your pre-move experience as smooth as possible.

There’s no need for the repairs and redecoration that so many estate agents say are necessary for selling, saving you time, money and strain. You also won’t have the hassle of organising viewings and there’ll be no uncertainty and worry that the sale may fall through – everything is just a simple and straightforward transaction.

No matter whether you sign up to our part-exchange scheme or decide to sell your old home yourself, McCarthy & Stone is committed to helping make every step of your move into your new home as hassle free as possible.
