Park Home Search Helps Couple Find Their Dream Retirement Home

Park Home Search Helps Couple Find Their Dream Retirement Home

Park Home Search ended the year with a dream come true for one couple. Park Home Search is a free online service which connects buyers and sellers of residential park homes and lodges throughout the UK.  Park home and holiday lodge manufacturers, as well as park operators, can add their homes and available plots to the website as and when they become available.  Potential buyers also have the option to register their details. So if you are unable to find what you are looking for, your details will be passed on to the relevant operators and manufacturers. This way you will be informed of new park homes and holiday lodges in your preferred location as soon as they’re available.

Discussing Park Home Requirements

Mr and Mrs Johnson were searching for their dream retirement home on the Park Home Search website when they came across one home which was in their dream location but internally not quite what they had in mind, but were still keen to view the property. Park Home Search is based in Northamptonshire and this is where Mr and Mrs Johnson live, so they decided to head straight down to the offices to speak to someone in person.  They wanted to arrange a viewing of the home that they had seen and to check if there were any other homes that may fit their requirements.  They met with Dave Tranter, Business Development at Park Home Search, who sat down with them to find out exactly what they were looking for, in order to see how we could help.   During the discussion it was revealed that rather than having an en-suite in their new park home, they would prefer to have a study, or even a bedroom that they could turn into a study.  Dave did some research for Mr and Mrs Johnson as they were looking to buy their new park home as soon as possible. He contacted some park operators advertising on Park Home Search to discuss the exact needs of the buyers.

One of the park operators that Dave spoke to was The Royale Group.  Royale has 70 years’ experience within the industry and has park homes in residential parks located in some stunning areas across the country.  Royale had some properties that were potentially suitable, so they contacted the customers direct to arrange a viewing.   Mr and Mrs Johnson were delighted, so decided to book a hotel and stay in the area for a few nights.  This is a good idea when you are buying a new park home, so that you can really get a feel for the area.

The park home in question was an Omar Middleton, and Mr and Mrs Johnson absolutely fell in love with the home and the area, finding their dream home in Devon. They have now purchased the new home and are moving in this month.

We are delighted that Park Home Search was able to help these customers to find their dream home in which to enjoy their retirement, and we look forward to hearing more stories like this in the future.

To adequately showcase the innovative and ground breaking new ranges, the decision has been taken to renovate the Tingdene Visitor Centre.

The centre, launched in 1984, is the only indoor park home and holiday lodge showroom in the UK. Few big changes have been made since it opened its doors over 30 years ago making this a very exciting time in Tingdene’s development.

Works on the Visitor Centre will begin on Monday 3rd December making this the perfect opportunity to view the current range of homes on display before they are sited in various locations around the UK. The Kensington, Country Lodge, Mackworth, Regency Classic, Hayden Classic, Savannah and Barnwell are all open to the public until then. Following the 3rd December the Centre will continue to be open with 4 homes being available for viewing outside of the main exhibition.

We will continue to invite all of our customers to the Centre during the renovation works and the sales team will be available to provide information and help during normal opening hours which are listed below.

We appreciate your patience during this transitional period and look forward to inviting you all to the new park home and holiday launch event in February 2019.

Park Home & Leisure Home Estate Agents

Park Home & Leisure Home Estate Agents

Many people selling their park home or leisure home are unaware that they can utilise the services of more than 1 estate agent to sell their property. However, this depends on the type of contract they have with their Estate Agent. Proceed with caution. As with all contracts, read thoroughly and seek clarification on anything that is confusing before you put pen to paper.

There are 5 different types of contract you could sign with an estate agent;

Sole selling

The estate agent retains the right to charge commission for the sale of the property even if you find a buyer independently without the assistance of the agent.

Sole agency

The estate agent is still the only agency with the selling rights. However, there is no commission to pay to the agent if you find a buyer yourself.

Multiple agency

You can take on a number of estate agents to market your property but you only have to pay a fee to the 1 agent that actually sells it. This contract usually specifies a higher commission rate.

Joint sole agency

You appoint 2 or more agencies to work together to sell your property and they split the fee equally between themselves, irrespective of who is responsible for the sale.

Ready, willing & able

It is recommended to stay away from this type of contract. If the estate agent finds you a buyer and you pull out of the sale, you will still be required to pay them.
