If you’re thinking of making the move to a park home, or have recently just bought one, you’ll need to think about the steps you’ll need to take to ensure a smooth and hassle free move.
In this article we talk about the few things you’ll need to consider when making the move to a park home.
1. Selling your house
For many, the move to a residential park home will mean selling their current property. To do so, you’ll need to follow the same procedure as you would if you were purchasing a regular house, so dealing with estate agents, solicitors and movers. Be sure to choose an estate agent with a transparent pricing structure, and read the small print before signing anything. It might be worth bringing a family member along to provide some support throughout the process.
That said, some residential park homes do offer a part exchange scheme, which can make things a lot easier. If you have questions about your home move, give our friendly team a call today and they’ll walk you through the process.
2. Packing your belongings
While it can be tempting to pack all of your belongings when you move, moving home can offer a great opportunity to get rid of some clutter that may have accumulated over the years. Be ruthless here – your park home will likely be fully furnished with luxurious items, so get rid of any old furniture you don’t need and take any unwanted items along to the charity shop.
Some charity organisations will even pick up old furniture for you, so you don’t have to worry about getting it to the tip!
3. Getting ready for park home life
Now, onto the best bit – settling into park home life. Once you’re done with the move, it’s time to put your feet up, enjoy your luxurious new park home, and befriend the neighbours. The beauty of leisure park living is the close-knit community it provides, as you’ll often find like-minded individuals on the door step.
Park home estates are usually serene, natural and well-maintained areas in close proximity to local amenities, quaint villages and nature trails, so be sure to explore your local area once you’re settled.
You’ll have less to do around the house, too, as park homes are often sold from new, so no need to worry about the cost and hassle of ongoing maintenance. Use this free time to get to know your new community.
