Holiday homes within walking distance of a village shop or local pub, with on-site parking, close to beaches, National Parks and with easy access to popular towns and cities will improve their marketability and return. Coastal holiday homes with good sea views will always carry a premium, both in purchase and rental. If the property were not close to a beach then a pool would add value for the warmer months.
Check the neighbourhood at different times of day. If you are close to a holiday apartment block, it may be noisy with numerous families holidaying together. Find a location with similar properties to your own.How can we assist you?
If you do not want to be amongst the summer crowds then let your property out from late June through to early September, where you will benefit from the maximum return from high-season rental prices. You can then enjoy your property in the more peaceful periods in early spring, late summer and autumn. Remember, Christmas and New Year are still considered high season, so be sure to make your property available to rent during this time for maximum return.How can we assist you?
Think about the ‘What If’s?’
Whilst many buyers are motivated to purchase holiday homes because of the enjoyment they will derive, like with any shrewd investment, it pays to think ahead and have a plan for different scenarios. If you decide to sell the property in the future, how strong is the local market and is the popularity for an area proven or emerging? Are there signs of inward investment into the area to support the desirability of a location? Is there a buoyant rental market or fierce competition? Planning ahead and doing your research before investing in a holiday home can pay big dividends in the long term.How can we assist you?
