Why the holiday complex sector is standing strong through political uncertainty

Why the holiday complex sector is standing strong through political uncertainty

Now we face a hung parliament, an increasing feeling of uncertainty is spreading its way through the property market. In a market where confidence is a major motivator to buy or sell, people rely on certainty to make important decisions, so recent events are bound to take a toll on the figures.

However, with a record level of new applicants, a 22% increase in viewing numbers and 100% more properties completed to date in 2017 compared to 2016, Stags Holiday Complex department is still seeing more and more people looking for a change in lifestyle.

Nick Smith of Stags Holiday Complex department owes this to a number of ranging factors, with the desire for a change at the forefront. "In times of uncertainty people turn to bricks and mortar. A move to the West Country from the South East means downsizing in price but upsizing in the size of property, land and income and with the added benefits of being your own boss and enjoying a better work/life balance than London or the Home Counties can offer, the prospect of a fresh challenge in the beautiful West Country remains as luring as ever."

With the typical lifestyle buyer looking for a traditional family home with between three and eleven cottages, below is a sample of the stunning properties our Holiday Complex department is currently listing across the West Country:

•Higher Torr Farm, East Allington, Devon: Charming period farmhouse in a central South hams location with four high quality holiday cottages and approximately 6 acres. 

•Widmouth House and Farm Cottages, Ilfracombe, Devon: a five-bedroom detached house with 11 recently refurbished AA 4* gold cottages, a private beach, boat house, mooring and fishing rights and former coastguard's lookout set in about 33.7 acres

Stags launched its specialist Holiday Complex department in 2004 to meet the ever-increasing demand for leisure based businesses in the West Country. Our team of dedicated, expert professionals offer a thorough understanding of what is involved in marketing and selling a holiday complex and will focus on maximising the potential of a property through skilled appraisals and a keen eye for development potential.
