Why Are So Many People Choosing to Move to Residential Park Homes?

Why Are So Many People Choosing to Move to Residential Park Homes?

There can be numerous reasons why people choose to move into residential park homes, especially with such a superb range of options available, to suit all desires and requirements, as well as all budgets.

However, there are a variety of factors that need to be taken into account when deciding whether a park home is suitable for you and your family. Comfort, cost, and suitability all need to be taken into account, amongst other things. And fortunately, the market is so diverse that there is something for everyone.

The reality of a park home is that there can be few more relaxing retreats. For example, most of our parks offer locations in unspoilt countryside, amenities close by and tranquillity around every corner. In fact, that's the main reason why so many choose this lifestyle.

The exponential growth in recent years is a result of increased desire for a more tranquil way of life, away from the hustle and bustle of the rat race. Typically, it is retired or semi-retired individuals, looking for a stunning location and peaceful surroundings, that are the most common residents here at Allens Caravans.

Modern, luxurious park homes benefit from superb specifications, inside and out. In addition, they also offer a variety of features to satisfy all needs. One benefit in particular is that residential caravans are generally low cost, compared to brick-built properties. That is why many people, when looking to downsize after their children move out, look to either sell their existing home outright or consider equity release of the existing property as a means of purchasing a park home.

Another factor is the maintenance and upkeep of a brick-built property. Regular maintenance can become an issue as we get older, but it is minimal for a park home, especially compared to a bricks and mortar one. Associated running costs are also much cheaper; add to this the fact that council tax tends to be within the lowest brackets, unlike many brick properties, and it's easy to see why residential caravans have become so popular.

There is no doubt that residential park living offers something for everyone, and people often remark on the community feel of our residential parks. Quite simply, residential park homes offer a delightful experience that delivers in every way, providing the ideal retirement that has been earned after years of toil.
