The benefits of renting in retirement
September 7, 2021

When you are heading into retirement, it can be a daunting process and something you want to ensure suits you and your new lifestyle.

 Renting is a fantastic option for those looking to retire as it offers flexibility to retirees. While many people dream of living in the Cotswolds, there are many who are not entirely sure what retirement actually looks like, and renting can be very appealing to many who are looking for more flexibility.

 Renting at Stratton Court Village means there is much more flexibility for those looking to move around. Whether it is moving abroad or even moving with family, renting means you are not being tied down permanently and offers you the ability to change your mind if circumstances change.

 When you are selling your current home, you can free-up capital by moving into rented accommodation. This can often be more profitable as an investment than tied into a property which can somethings not grow at a similar rate. We recommend speaking to a financial advisor who specialises in retirement if you want to assess any investment option.

 Now that the reduced stamp duty is nearly over, renting means there is no stamp duty on a new property which can be really beneficial for some retirees.

 Renting can give you a real try before you buy experience in Stratton Court Village. If you are looking to ‘dip your toe’ in the retirement waters, then renting can give you a flexible alternative to outright purchase while still giving you access to our wide range of social events.
