When looking to purchase a retirement property there are several places to search for one.
First you need to establish what type of retirement property you are looking for, the location you would like to live and the facilities and services you require. Then you can begin looking for your perfect home.
Developments tend to comprise of around 60 1 and 2 bedroom retirement apartments. There is a huge choice of properties all over the country and each house builder has a different style for their developments so it is worth looking at each of them to see which suits you best. Anchor, Rennaissance, McCarthy and Stone and Churchill are the largest and most well-known but there are many others as well.
Where to find your perfect retirement flat
High street estate agents sell retirement flats alongside regular properties so you may want to visit your local estate agent to see what is available in your area. However, it is also worth contacting a specialist estate agency such as Retirementmove, who specialise in retirement properties. Our sales team understands the benefits of the retirement lifestyle and the retirement market which enables them to give you a personalised, tailored service.
For a wider search and to find properties available through multiple agencies, you may prefer to search online. Most estate agents advertise on property websites such as www.Rightmove.co.uk. On Rightmove, you can filter your search criteria to just show retirement homes in your specified search area. You will be able to see photos of the property, floorplans, a description of the facilities available at the development and information on the local area. You will also be able to contact the estate agent via the website.
www.housingcare.org is another useful website. It offers advice for older people on elderly care and housing. They list all the retirement developments in the country and often show when they have flats for sale. Like Rightmove, you can search by postcode or city.
