Safe viewings reassure our buyers and homeowners

The gradual easing of lockdown restrictions is now making it easier for our buyers to safely view homes and complete purchases in our beautiful retirement living locations such as Poole and Salisbury.

The safety of our visitors, homeowners and team remains our top priority. This means that there are now several ways that you can enjoy the experience of a Platinum Skies home.

If you’d like to visit in person, you can rest assured that we have invested in personal protective equipment (PPE), comprehensive training and technology that follows strict government guidelines.

Our virtual tours also let you explore our retirement living locations with a friendly tour guide from the comfort of your own home.

Viewings to a Platinum Skies location are limited to two people and prior to this a Sales Manager will ask four COVID-19 questions to assess the risk of the visit. We appreciate that this can seem a bit different, but we’re here to guide you through every step of a safe viewing.

Gloves, mask and access to antibacterial gel is fully available at the reception/foyer. Our on-site Lifestyle Manager will also be on hand for support to ensure a safe viewing and then wipe down surfaces after the visit.

We feel this is the perfect way to confidently and securely explore all that a Platinum Skies lifestyle has to offer. We have a number of show homes at each location, as well as tours of the communal spaces and outdoor areas, so you can really get a sense of the location as a whole.

Platinum Skies retirement locations are purposefully chosen for their beautiful natural surroundings and amenities. Many of our homes have balconies with sweeping views and access to large, private communal gardens.

We provide an affordable home in the right location for you to enjoy your retirement. Health and wellbeing is a huge part of what makes being a Platinum Skies homeowner so special. We have designed our homes to be bright, spacious and airy, which brings enormous benefits.

Throughout the lockdown, our on-site lifestyle managers have been supporting our home-owners with support, socially-distanced events and free food parcels when needed.

David Hines, COO of Platinum Skies, adds: “It’s a testament to the quality and stability of our homes that the sales team have remaining busy throughout the lockdown period, with new buyers wanting information on all of our schemes in South-West England. The safety and wellbeing of our buyers, homeowners and team will always come first. At Platinum Skies, we are proud to say that at each of our developments you can now take a safe, socially-distanced guided tour with full PPE equipment provided.”

David Hines added: “If you’re not visiting us in person, we have virtual tours with buyers available to have face to face video conversations with our sales team, as they navigate through the development. The videos are fully interactive, so purchasers can zoom in on specification details, such as kitchen cabinetry and bathroom finishes, as well as view rooms from different angles, to really get a sense of the space.

“We also have aerial drone footage of each development, so buyers get a sense of what the immediate surroundings look like, and how the building fits within the local area. At Vista in Poole, residents can see the mesmerising views of Poole Harbour which is enjoyed from practically every apartment. Meanwhile from the upper levels at Chapters, the distinctive spire of Salisbury Cathedral can be spotted in all its glory.”

Platinum Skies homes are available on a 50% shared ownership basis. We’re proud to emphasise that this scheme is backed by Government and regulated by Homes England who strive to make affordable homes accessible in the UK.

Platinum Skies affordable retirement sites are located at Vista, a collection of apartments in Lower Parkstone overlooking the beauty of Poole harbour, Esprit in the heart of Poole, Chapters a new retirement village in the heart of the historic city of Salisbury, Monterey in a prime location in Christchurch and a soon to be completed retirement village in Sherborne, Dorset.
