Why many UK retirees should quickly get cash to move to these UK places

Many people who want to retire and so purchase new and more appropriate houses in which to spend their retirement opt to draw upon the assistance of QuickBuyers to quickly get cash for their existing houses. This is often because the current UK economy and, therefore, property market is in far from top shape and so attempting to quickly get cash for properties through using local estate agencies can often be fruitless. However, many people who want to enlist the help of QuickBuyers for the aforementioned purpose may remain indecisive about where they should buy houses in which to spend their retirement. Well, here are a few UK places that we would particularly recommend for such people.


The UK’s capital city is a highly desirable place for many people, not just people seeking to retire, to live in, thanks largely to its amazing wealth of cultural opportunities, widespread and efficient public transport networks – including, of course, the London Underground – and plentiful and varied other amenities. All of these are especially good reasons for many people to spend their retirement in London. The city’s public transport networks, for example, should come in useful for elderly people as their health fails and so they become less capable of driving reliably and the great accessibility of London from so many other parts of the country ensures that many friends and relatives of retired people living in the city are likely to have few problems visiting them even if they live far from London.

Northern cities including Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow

Though London has many merits as a place to retire to, one big dilemma for retirees there is that the cost of living is notoriously expensive. Hence, many people might prefer to quickly get cash for their houses, with assistance from QuickBuyers, to spend their retirement in northern cities like Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow – as, as places to retire to, these cities have many of the benefits of London but typically much lower living costs. Newcastle and Glasgow in particular each boast a large and highly convenient metro public transport system similar to the London Underground.


We have mentioned a few large and well-known cities in this blog post, so why are we suggesting that many people seeking to retire should, with help from QuickBuyers, quickly get cash for their houses to fund purchases of new houses in Harrogate? It is, after all, a relatively small spa town and so, initially at least, apparently unremarkable. However, the town does actually have a surprising amount to recommend it as a place to which to retire. For example, not only does it boast countryside on the doorstep and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, it is also near several cities which can offer many retired residents of Harrogate plentiful entertainment and shopping opportunities and medical care. This makes Harrogate an appropriate place for someone to retire to if they would like to spend their retirement somewhere that is relatively peaceful but not too isolated for comfort.
