Did you know most McCarthy Stone developments now offer retirement properties to rent? Here are some benefits to renting in retirement.
Discover new horizons
Renting a retirement property gives you the flexibility and the freedom to live where you please.
You can move location with ease so you can be closer to your children and grandchildren.
And if the idea of downsizing from a large home to a retirement apartment seems a step too far, renting could offer the chance for a trial run.
“It was a terrific decision for us,” said Robert Wragg (pictured with his wife Jennifer) who rents a McCarthy Stone apartment at Milward Place, Redditch.
“Initially we took out a 12-month contract so we could decide for ourselves how we liked it, but after being here just a few short weeks we’re really enjoying ourselves and the sense of freedom it has given us is fantastic.”
Combine simplicity with security
Renting means you don’t have the hassle of property chains and solicitors; the whole process is relatively quick and easy.
And if you’ve chosen a McCarthy Stone Assured Tenancy, your rental property is your home for as long as you wish.
Renting also offers the opportunity to enjoy the money raised from selling a home. So instead of using it to buy another you can spend it on the family, hobbies or travelling
“When you rent, if something goes wrong you just ring McCarthy Stone and they arrange for someone to come and fix the problem,” adds Mr Wragg.
“In our previous home we were forever decorating and cleaning. Now the apartment is so low maintenance we barely have to lift a finger. It’s warm, cosy and has a relaxed atmosphere which makes you feel right at home.”
With retirement rental properties there are no more worries over leaky roofs, broken boilers or overgrown pathways.
In McCarthy Stone retirement developments you’ll also benefit from the peace of mind offered by integrated fire and security alarms, 24 hour emergency call out and friendly managers.
Renting a retirement home in a development which offers social events, communal living spaces and shared gardens give you access to a whole new social circle, where neighbours soon become friends.
“The way people all knew each other and would plan activities and events as a community, was really encouraging and gave me confidence that I had made the right choice in renting an apartment at Milward Place.” Ron Daykin.
