Why buy a holiday home?

More people than ever before are investing in a holiday home. According to the Resolution Foundation, one in ten British adults is now a second homeowner. The majority of those buy second properties as holiday home investment. If you are thinking of becoming one of them, you can make the most of your holiday home investment by choosing wisely.

Buying a holiday home in the UK is not just a sound financial investment. Over the years, it will save you money on expensive trips abroad, give you a chance to kick back and relax not too far away from home and allow you to do more of the things that you enjoy doing. What’s more, the whole family can benefit from your purchase.

Choosing a holiday home

Before you splash the cash, it pays to consider the options. Do you want to invest in a property that comes with the benefit of managed grounds, a ready-made community and on-site facilities? Perhaps you would like to have a home by the sea, or in the country? You may even want a second home that is somewhere in between – so that you can take advantage of both.

Holiday parks are a popular choice for holidays because they are an affordable, low maintenance option with all the style and kudos of five star hotels. You will find them in premium locations across the country, in secure, sometimes gated, communities. Boasting contemporary interiors and all mod cons, they are an attractive gateway to lifestyle living.

Things to consider before you buy a holiday home:

  • Is it in your preferred location?
  • Does it tick all the boxes for being close to amenities and attractions?
  • Will it be easy to maintain?
  • Are there any site fees or services charges to take into account?
  • Does the park cater for your needs?
  • How long is the holiday season?

Who buys a holiday home?

Whether you enjoy walking, cycling, days out or just relaxing, holiday homes are a cost-effective and attractive investment. People who own a holiday home enjoy the freedom of being able to come and go as and when they please, many benefiting from long holiday seasons. If you want to enjoy your holiday home whatever the weather, you may wish to choose either a lodge or static caravan. Often available with ten to twelve month holiday licences, they give you the option to take holidays all year.

Static caravans remain a popular choice for holiday homes. As well as being available in areas where you might not be able to afford a bricks and mortar property, they are now the height of style. Furnished with luxury fixtures and fittings, including high-quality fabrics and spectacular bathrooms, they boast everything from fantastic views to plenty of storage space. What’s more, they are often sited in sought-after locations.
