More people than ever before are realising their dream of owning a residential park or holiday home – thanks to Sell My Group. Visits to the UK’s leading online park home platform, which incorporates Sell My Park Home, Sell My Lodge, Sell My Caravan and Sell My Holiday Home, have jumped by a massive 35 per cent over the last year. In October alone, visits were up by 34.5 per cent on the same period last year.
Justin Allitt, of Sell My Group, believes the huge increase in traffic reflects growing interest in holiday home ownership and lifestyle living.
He said: “The market, which was already growing, is now being further buoyed by those who are ruling out holidays abroad. They have realised that they can save money by investing in a holiday home in the UK as well as discovering the many benefits of owning their very own bolthole.
“Hassles with flights, foreign security and tour operators going bust have served to turn the British off holidaying abroad. They now want to be able to kick back and relax whenever they want in a location that best suits their individual needs on home soil.”
Interest in residential park home ownership has also seen a huge spike.
Mr Allitt said: “More and more people are realising that park home ownership is good for them, both now and in the future.
“As well as offering contemporary accommodation with every conceivable mod con, park homes offer those looking for a slower pace of life the ability to achieve their dream and release capital to spend in retirement.
“Thousands of people have realised that they really can enjoy peace and tranquility in safe, secure communities, while still having money in the bank to spend on the things that matter to them.”
Mr Allitt added: “homes on residential parks are modern, easy to maintain and really cheap to run – all important factors that people are really taking on board. They don’t want the burden of having to care for a property that is too big for their needs and park homes reduce the burden of maintenance and other bills. Downsizing to a stunning park or lodge home frees up cash that makes growing older really enjoyable and not a worry.”
The Sell My Group brand connects buyers and sellers in the park home sector, as well as offering services to park home operators and associated businesses.
