Caravan Parks For Sale, Valuations and Planning

Caravan Parks For Sale

Michael Paul Consultancy specialises in caravan parks for sale. Whether you are looking to sell or buy a caravan park, at Michael Paul Consultancy we can help navigate you through the process, from conception to completion.

Even before the Covid-19 pandemic, the popularity of ‘staycation’ holidays was at an all-time high, with many people ditching plans for a holiday abroad in favour of staying in the UK instead.

However, with many feeling uneasy about travelling abroad even as restrictions start to lift, demand for breaks closer to home has soared.

The 2020 Travel Survey, conducted by Michael Paul Holidays, heard how the pandemic had impacted the plans of British holidaymakers and found out what kind of holidays they were planning next.

From July 2020, most British holidaymakers (85%) said they were planning a UK getaway, with the majority of those (44%) booking a caravan holiday in a coastal area (73%).

This staycation ‘boom’ has led to an increase in the number of British holiday park owners who are now looking to sell their asset and likewise a a surge of interest from people wanting to buy.

Selling a holiday park you own

If you have a holiday village, leisure park, lodge complex, caravan site, holiday cottage or guest house you wish to sell, current valuation is the best place to start.

We start by undertaking a detailed assessment process before we advertise sites for sale creating a bespoke marketing brochure, virtual walk-through, drone imagery, and online videos.

This will then be sent to our contacts in the industry and published on industry-targeted websites.  It will also be added to our own website to provide you with the best chance of making a sale.

Once an accurate appraisal has been made by one of our RICS Chartered Surveyors, we can advise you on the best way to market your holiday park.

Helping you sell faster

Over the past 50 years, we have built up an extensive database of contacts , meaning we can target thousands of active buyers to give you the best possible chance of achieving the asking price.

We will be happy to discuss an appraisal of your caravan park and recommend the most appropriate marketing options to meet your needs.

We can often achieve a confidential sale without the need to openly market and advertise the park and take a great deal of pride in delivering what our clients need.
