‘Smarties’ choose Dorchester as the perfect place for downsizing

We were delighted to see that Dorchester is a top choice for ‘Smarties’ – a group of retirees defined by global information services company Experian.

The number of retired people in the UK grows every year and Experian’s research highlights the increasing diversity of this group, with very different needs and expectations.

Smarties represent a rising trend of retirees who are relatively affluent, active and in good health …. and often keen to downsize to an attractive town in the UK.

One of the top towns chosen by this group is – Dorchester!

This is not surprising. Dorchester is a fascinating historic town with a great mix of new and old, excellent amenities, mainline rail link to London Waterloo and stunning countryside on the doorstep.

Metis Homes’ new three and four-bedroom houses at Eastgate are perfect for Smarties. The homes are a short stroll from the town centre and offer a high specification and private parking behind secure gates. There’s even a Waitrose nearby.

Homes are selling fast – so contact us quickly if you’d like to find out more.
