Buying a static caravan is a fantastic way to enjoy holidays throughout the UK. Having your own holiday home that you can visit whenever you like is the perfect way to spend your breaks.
But buying a static caravan is also a great investment opportunity.
Many people purchase their own static caravan with a view to sell later down the line. If that’s something you’re interested in, here’s how you can increase the value of your static caravan.
1. Make sure to give it some TLC
Your caravan is likely to experience some general wear and tear over time but it can depreciate its value. Stay on top of all of the minor damages, fixing them before they become something more serious and expensive to fix. Significant damages can affect your static caravans resale value but so can dated decor and tired furniture. By keeping them up to date and cared for you can maximise the value of your caravan.
2. Regularly service your caravan
You should make sure that your caravan is running as efficiently and correctly as possible so you’ll need to make sure that all built-in appliances such as the fridge and oven are in tip top condition. It’s also a good idea to regularly service your boiler.
3. Stay on top of dampness
A damp static caravan produces a smell that buyers and dealers can quickly identify and it’s a sign of water ingress and a neglected holiday caravan. The foul smell will either keep buyers off or reduce the price. Plus, if you don’t act on the first sign of damp it can severely damage your static caravan and can become costly to repair.
4. Think about renting it out
While you own your static caravan, a fantastic way to earn some extra money from it is by renting it out. This will also stand you in good stead if you do want to sell down the line as while you’re renting it out, any potential issues should arise that you can fix before you put it on the market.
