Downsizing or Equity Release Posted on October 10, 2017 (June 15, 2020) by Caitlin Marsh How can you free up equity? You’re thinking of retirement and in doing so you have lots of questions. Where do you want to live? What do you want to spend your time doing? How will you support any potential future care needs? How do you deal with your finances? When you’re thinking about your retirement and finances it’s common to consider downsizing and equity release options. It can be difficult to decide what to do and often the costs of either of these options can really add up. It’s because of this that we have created a new solution! Flexible ownership. You could buy one of our beautiful retirement properties and remain living the life you have now. Part-ownership enables you to remain independent and in control of your future, gaining a greater capital release and a tax-free lump sum. You still own your property and pay a minimal rent. From John, a Platinum Skies owner: “A lot of the places we looked at didn’t fit the bill – they were out of budget, too small, or we’d be sharing bathrooms and laundry rooms, not quite the independent life we were looking for! Platinum Skies’ part-buy part-rent concept has meant we’re able to move into a modern, brand new apartment with more space than we thought we could afford and still be mortgage free!” – John is one of our new owners having just moved in at Monterey, our development now selling in Christchurch. Part-ownership was a great decision for them. Have a look at our infographic which will show you why retiring with Platinum Skies as your partner could be the best decision you ever make for your retirement: If this sounds like an exciting possibility for your retirement why not take advantage of our offer today and call us on 01202 47146?
