Park homes benefitting from housing boom

There have been plenty of headlines recently declaring the housing crash that has affected us during the past few years has come to an end. It’s not just the bricks and mortar market that’s moving, though; park home popularity is on the increase as well.

According to the British Holiday & Home Parks Association (BH&HPA), more than 200,000 people now live in a park home in the UK alone. The majority of these (95%) are aged over 55 years old, however park home living is gathering appeal among younger generations as well.

‘Far from negative images of ‘trailer parks’ often portrayed by the media, home parks are aspirational, not desperate places, offering individuals, couples, families and retirees alike good quality, affordable housing within a community in some of the most stunning parts of the country,’ remarks Park Home & Holiday Caravan magazine.

A more affordable purchase price and lower cost of living are also among the reasons why park homes are proving an attractive choice to many different sections of society.
