The award-winning later-living specialist Rangeford Villages has launched a new initiative to pay household bills for two years*. This is for all incoming residents purchasing a new build property at one of its integrated retirement villages. These are at Wadswick Green in Corsham, Siddington Park in Cirencester and Mickle Hill in Pickering.
The initiative is designed to offer complete peace of mind to prospective buyers. This is when utility costs across the country are continuing to rise. The attractive incentive will no doubt be a welcome relief for buyers concerned about the rising energy costs, as well as cost of purchasing a property.
Rising Cost of Living
Online research conducted by Opinium on behalf of Age UK (January 2022) found that over 75% of overs 65’s worry about the rising cost of living. 54% of those surveyed said they would have to heat their homes less. Additionally, a staggering 43% admitted they would have to either cut back. Some said they would go into debt, or simply not be able to afford their household bills.
Howard Nankivell, CEO of Rangeford Villages, commented:
“We understand and appreciate the concerns of our prospective buyers in terms of factoring the rising costs of household bills on top of the purchase price of a property. With utility firms expected to raise prices by 40% again in October 2022, we wanted to offer an incentive. It would be to help alleviate some of the financial pressures our buyers are facing. The incentive will hopefully offer complete peace of mind to prospective buyers. They can move in having already saved on the cost of their energy bills. And with future energy price rises looming, now is the perfect time to take advantage of this fantastic offer.”
Energy Efficiency Reduces Household Bills
In addition to the energy initiative, prospective buyers can rest assured that properties at Rangeford Villages are also highly energy efficient. They include modern features such as underfloor heating and double-glazed picture windows. Also they have an all-electric energy system to help lower bills and environmental impact. Electric car charging points, pool cars as well as communal transport will all be available for residents’ use.
