While the popularity of buying mobile homes, lodges or holiday homes may be marginally affected by the seasons, you can’t go wrong if you remember a few basics. There are many pros of caravan ownership, including the flexibility of choosing your own location, relocating abroad, or just purchasing accommodation at a very reasonable price.
In general, the best time to buy a mobile home or a static caravan is when you’ve organised your finances, done your research and had a good look around at what is available. Then, when you see the model and location that ticks all your boxes, you will have the information and resources to negotiate a good deal.
There are many pros of caravan ownership when it comes to having a place to go on holiday that you can kit out exactly the way you like it. When you buy a static caravan, you can have a relaxing holiday in a mobile home whenever the fancy takes you, with no worries about hotel bookings or having to think too far ahead. One of the pros of caravan ownership is that your schedule is determined by you, and you alone.
While a relaxing holiday in a mobile home is a great idea at any time, the warmer months do tend to see an uptick in the number of people going on holiday. When the school term ends for the long summer break and children are free of classes, parents naturally think about holiday homes and organising trips. It is logical then that the summer school holidays and the weeks leading up to the long school break are probably the busiest time of the year for purchasing mobile and holiday homes.
Of course, when demand rises, then so can the price. In the summer months, there may be more competition for mobile and holiday homes and you might have to pay a little more. Conversely, during the winter months, fewer families are thinking about a relaxing holiday in a mobile home so demand will be less and there may be some bargains to be had if existing owners need to sell holiday homes in a hurry.
It’s a good idea to take your time when thinking about the pros of caravan ownership and buying static caravans or holiday homes. First of all, be clear about what you want, how big it needs to be and your budget. Do you need to borrow money or get financing in place? Getting this crucial aspect sorted out before you start the search can give you negotiating power.
When you start looking at mobile homes, you might want to consider the age of the model, and whether it can be customised the way you wish. You will also need to think about the location of your mobile home. If you are relocating abroad, there could be some admin to deal with regarding your purchase and setting up in your new home.
