Why should you think about buying a retirement property chosen for over-55s?

Retirement property is now something that is being more widely offered to those who are over 55 and looking to buy. They are often provided at a more affordable cost to buyers, and built in a way that offers greater features for older residents as they begin their retirement. This can minimise difficulties over the following years, in a number of ways, even if at 55 you still feel as if you’re in your 20s! So if you’re over 55, why should you think about buying a retirement property chosen for over-55s?

The moving process made easier

Specially-built retirement homes for the over-55s can simplify the moving process and move in residents straight away without the need to redecorate or complete repairs. Retirement properties are built ready to move in, and then sold on in the same condition. This shortens the overall moving process and removes the need for additional structural surveys that may otherwise need to be completed.

Security and guarantees

Often, retirement properties will be sold with guarantees of a set period of times, and this will cover unforeseen problems that may occur during this time. Not only this, but retirement properties are designed with security features such as fire and smoke alarms, burglar alarms, and health-specific assistance cords where required. They are also often designed over one single level to eliminate the need for stairs. This enables buyers to live in their new home for the following years without any issues even through any health problems, or whether they are physically completely able.

Blenheim Court properties from Clarke Gammon Wellers

Clarke Gammon Wellers are currently showcasing a number of brand new retirement properties in Blenheim Court, located on the outskirts of Liss, a beautiful countryside village in Hampshire. Within the development there are 14 Close-Care apartments, each of which has 2 bedrooms and is designed to the highest specification. The setting within the South Downs National Park is hard to match, whilst for those residents looking for greater care, there is also a care home adjacent to the development which offers outstanding services on the doorstep. Buyers of Blenheim Court apartments can choose to opt for care packages from help with daily tasks and medication through to the smallest half an hour of assistance per day.

Age-specific living in a beautiful setting

Even if you’ve just turned 55, there are benefits to living in a more mature community, which include generally lower noise levels and being around others of a similar age or older. Age-specific living offers contemporary design combined with additional security benefits, and offering high quality care close by when needed. At the same time, it offers an independent lifestyle where buyers can take advantage of care facilities or simply enjoy the setting.

What’s more is that the Blenheim Court properties are within a short distance of all amenities that buyers will need, such as Guildford being only 31 minutes away by train and 25 by car, and Portsmouth being 39 minutes away by train and only 22 by car. This makes it easier for buyers who still want to travel easily, and London Waterloo is also only 71 minutes away by train too, whilst the village of Liss is well served by public transport including regular bus services.
