In the latest edition of Life magazine from our partner McCarthyStone, we hear from customers who have used Spring's home buying service to make their move into a new retirement community.

Mr & Mrs Perrin’s story:

Spring Part-Exchange – a quick, simple, and stress-free move.

When McCarthy Stone began building a development nearby, it caught the eye of Jennifer Perrin 74 and her husband Michael Perrin, aged 86, who wondered what life would be like in a retirement community and how it could meet their changing needs.

McCarthy Stone offered us a way to sell our home via their part-exchange partner Spring. This was ideal for us as it meant we didn’t have to put our house on the market or have strangers traipsing through the house on viewings. Spring took away a lot of the worries and stresses we were feeling and made the move so much easier, plus it allowed us to move when it suited us and we didn’t have to wait’, explained Jennifer.

‘Choosing Spring’s part-exchange service allowed us to sell up quickly and easily. Once we had made the decision to move, we just wanted to get on with it. The Spring team were always at the end of the phone and I was reassured by their open, friendly communication. I also got my cheque from the SPRING PRICE PROMISE which was perfect for us once we moved in. Overall, I’d highly recommend Spring to my friends and family’.

Phyllis and Alex’s story:

License to occupy – flexibility to move when it suits.

After trying to sell her bungalow for 6 months on the open market with no success, Phyllis, with the help of son Alex, came to Spring to find a solution that could get her moving into a  McCarthy Stone assisted living accommodation which offered the support she needed to keep living independently in her golden years.

Mum just wanted to get on with the move as soon as possible as she found a lovely McCarthy Stone apartment that suited her perfectly in Chorley”, said Alex.

Having the 28 days to access Mum’s home after the sale completed was invaluable to us. It allowed us to have a good clear out and move Mum into her new McCarthy Stone apartment in a far more relaxed way – it was a huge help. Without the licence to occupy, I think the move would have been impossible and far too stressful for her”, explained Alex.

Thelma and Alison’s story:

Spring Price Promise – extra peace of mind

After living in the Carlisle home Thelma shared with her late husband for 56 years, selling a house with so many memories wasn’t an easy decision. Choosing the right property and making the move happen as quickly as possible was a priority for the whole family. Unsure of the local market and dreading hosting viewings, McCarthy Stone part exchange partner,  SPRING, was able to simply purchase the home directly from Thelma, freeing her to make the move to her new apartment quickly and easily.

Finding Mums new home and using Spring’s part-exchange service has made the whole move seamless and really easy”, said Alison.

Following her move, Thelma benefited from a SPRING PRICE PROMISE payment, allowing her to redecorate the apartment without using her savings. “We loved that Spring gave Mum an additional 4 weeks to move out of her house. My husband Peter and I were able to redecorate Mum’s apartment using the price promise money, then clear the house and garage in our own time. We couldn’t imagine trying to move and complete all in one day like a traditional house sale. It’s been a great experience and we can’t praise Rebecca and everyone at Spring enough”.
