Attention Over 55's! Are you considering a new future following the pandemic?

Are you planning for the future? Considering retirement and releasing equity from your current home?

Retirement properties come in many forms, some are highly independent, and others have a level of care and support included in the package. Some are in towns and cities and some in well served villages. Some even consider domestic pets, have 24 hour emergancy alarms and have flexible communal areas if required, or privacy if not. The type of property you require will ultimately depend on your current and possible future needs. With prices starting from only £90,000 a  retirement property could be the start to a brighter, independent future both personally and financially.
