Retirement Apartments: Helping you sell your home
To make selling your home easier, at Churchill Retirement Living we have two useful services in place. These are our Selling Made Easy service and our Home Exchange service. It’s these two services that will ensure that your move is as stress-free as possible.
The Selling Made Easy service aims to reduce the stress that comes with marketing a property. As part of this service, Churchill Retirement Living will deal with various areas of your sale for you. This includes agreeing on a good price and arranging viewings, as well as conversing with the estate agents about the minor details.
The main benefit of using this service is that you should be able to make a sale more quickly. As part of Selling Made Easy, you’ll also receive a free Energy Performance Certificate. As well as £2000 towards estate agent's fees and £500 towards solicitor’s fees.
The Home Exchange service offers a less stressful way of selling your property. You’ll always have complete control of the sale, but it will be managed by the Churchill Retirement team for you. By opting to go down the exchange route, you’ll benefit from a fast sale. Plus, you'll have no estate agent’s fees to worry about.
Retirement Living: Helping you move into your new Churchill retirement apartment
Packing up your home and moving to somewhere new is always stressful. But even more so when your new home is smaller than your last one. Don’t let the fact that you have a lot of stuff put you off moving to the perfect sized home. It’s just a case of decluttering and sorting effectively. To help you do that, Churchill Retirement Living offers two services; the Removal Service and the Right Sizing service.
The Removal Service on offer comes with many benefits, including use of some of the country’s best removal companies. You'll receive a free fully inclusive removals package and a personal move coordinator who can help you de-clutter and pack up. There’s even a packing service on offer, so if you don’t fancy packing up, someone else can do it for you.
The Right Sizing service is brought to you by Churchill Retirement Living and The Senior Move Partnership. This is a service that helps you to size up your new property and work out what you’ll be able to take with you. Complete with tailored services to meet your needs, this is an incredibly useful service.
So there you have it, all the best advice for moving to a Churchill Retirement property with ease. For more information, give us a call on 0800 458 1856.
