Not sure if buying a holiday home is in your budget? We’re here to break down the true cost of owning your own holiday home so you can start saving or making plans to make your dream a reality.
When you’re figuring out how much it costs to buy a holiday home, you really need to factor in three distinct costs:
1. Your holiday home
First and foremost the biggest cost is the holiday home itself. The holiday home price you see on the website covers the cost of the holiday home itself and essential add-ons such as siting, connection and safety and security essentials. The cost of your holiday home will depend on where you decide to buy, whether you buy a new or pre-owned holiday home and the location of your holiday home on the park.
To give you an idea of the cost of a holiday home our prices start from as little as just £23,995. Our top of the line holiday lodges that have their own unique designs and hot tubs vary in price but currently our most expensive holiday home is priced at £344,995.
We require a deposit to secure your holiday home and chosen pitch and the deposits we require are from as little as 10%. We would then look to complete your purchase with us, and have you enjoying your holiday home within the next 14 days.
We do also have finance options available that we would be more than happy to discuss with you.
2. Annual site fees
The next thing you need to factor in are site fees. Site fees are not exclusive to Encore Parcs. Every holiday home park charges site fees and covers the cost of general maintenance of the holiday park. Our site fees vary by park and pitch location, but as a rough guide our annual site fees range from £1,800 – £5,000.
The price you pay includes the cost of keeping your holiday home at the park for the whole year, and covers maintenance and security, grass cutting, landscaping and general park upkeep, plus the use of any and all park facilities.
3. Annual running costs
And thirdly we have annual running costs. Annual running costs include rates, water, gas, electricity and insurance. These do tend to change from year to year, but our friendly advisors can give you general annual running costs estimates that you can factor in before buying your holiday home.
Choosing a holiday home to suit your budget
At Encore Parcs we do our best to have holiday homes to suit a wide range of budgets. Our holiday homes range from static caravans and static homes, through to luxury holiday lodges to make buying a holiday home as affordable as possible. We also give you the option of choosing from one of our holiday homes for sale already situated on site, or give you the opportunity to design your dream holiday home from scratch.
