Resale Service

Caravans in the Sun have a dedicated sales team and a large database of customers wanting to purchase a mobile home in the sun. Our main aims are to match customers already on our database to the homes that come available and then to convert general phone and email enquiries into park visits / viewing trips. Sometimes the homes for sale don’t even make it on to our website; in a number of cases we can match the home for sale with a customer already on our database and complete a sale very quickly.

Caravans in the Sun have use one of the largest marketing budgets to help sell your home for you, we advertise on various online property portals, we are present at multiple exhibitions for both property and mobile homes, we have our very own Radio and TV adverts (as displayed below), even being featured on ‘Channel 4 – A Place in the Sun : Winter Sun’ twice, the most recent in January 2017 featuring our park in Crete – Creta Camping and we also advertise in relevant magazines and sporadically national newspapers. ‎All of the above will help to encourage potential customers to visit our parks and view your home.

We aim to provide a stress free and time conscious solution to finding a buyer for your home or Lodge in the sun.
