5 Things to Consider When Buying Your Holiday Home

Buying a holiday home can be both an exciting and stressful venture. Here are 5 of the most important things that you should remember to consider to ensure that you purchase the right holiday home for you…

 Research the Holiday Site

Remember, not all holiday sites are the same, some are designed for families and others are aimed at people seeking a quieter holiday. The distance of the site is also important to consider, if you are planning to visit your holiday home regularly a park that you can access within a couple of hours is advisable.

Decide Whether You Want to Buy a New or Used Home?

Your budget will determine whether you purchase a new or used holiday home. If you decide to buy a second hand home, make sure that you review its full owner history and get someone who knows what they are looking at to give it a once over before you part with your money!

Consider Extra Costs

Most holiday parks will give you an all-in figure for your plot and holiday home. However, you will also need to pay a pitch fee which will be priced according to the facilities on offer. Most sites provide water, sewage and electrical facilities, but make sure you double check exactly what is available to be on the safe side.

Check How Reputable the Park Owner is

To ensure that you are buying a holiday home from a reputable park owner you should check that they are a member of the National Caravan Council or the British Holiday & Home Parks Association. This way they have to adhere to the official codes of practice and you can rest assured that you are well protected.
