Our approach to agency is made unique by the needs, wants and circumstances of a growing section of the market looking to buy and rent properties branded as "retirees" albeit at varying ages and for many different reasons.
The market continues to grow and will be particularly buoyant this decade due to a number of factors, with the post WWII baby boom being a key one. Ending just over 65 years ago, this boom is having an impact on the growing number of family homes being sold, by those looking to retire or simply release capital accrued resulting from the healthy rise in house prices over the last few decades.
This sector has shaped the way that we look to market and advertise ourselves and our client’s properties. Amongst those looking to retire, there is a commonality that enables us to provide properties that generally offer features that the vast majority of the market is looking for. The concepts of a lock up and leave and easy independent living are generally popular and are considered when seeking properties that our buyers or tenants would find of interest. Typically, properties that offer modern fixtures and fittings, security, semi-fixed and manageable costs, good levels of customer service and more often than not, in a city, town or village centre.
