Setting a fair price for your static caravan
Many people ask ‘do static caravans hold their value?’ – The safe answer is ‘no’ however this is not always true because static caravans can actually increase in value on certain parks. This all depends on supply & demand as well as the condition your static caravan is in.
Ask yourself the following questions when deciding how much you should sell your static caravan for.
- Are static caravans selling well on park and how many empty plots are there?
- Has your static caravan got many years left on the pitch licence agreement?
- How much are similar caravans selling for? A private sale will usually sell for less than company models as they do not come with the same benefits i.e. extra warranty, consumer protection.
- The price you paid. How much did you pay and how long have you owned. A simple equation is to deduct £1000 per year for depreciation.
- How fast do you need to sell your static caravan?
Take all these factors in consideration and come up with a fair selling price to start. Here at Parklink we’ll be happy to help you decide a fair selling price for your static caravan.
Can I put a ‘for sale’ sign in the window of my static caravan?
Most holiday parks have a policy where you are not able to put a ‘for sale’ sign in your static caravan window. This is for the good of the park as holiday parks with too many ‘for sale’ signs does not look good to potential buyers. Check with your park as they may let you put one of their branded ‘for sale’ signs in the window as a compromise.
Work with the park and together you should be able to achieve a private sale which suits all parties.
How to prepare my static caravan to sell?
Getting the ‘show-home’ look can be challenging especially if you are planning to continue to use your static caravan. Clear out as much clutter as you can and make the place as neutral as possible. Bear in mind that your tastes will not be the same as a potential buyers. Buyers need to imagine themselves being in, and owning your static caravan. Keep the place as clean as possible and welcoming at all times. When selling your caravan it is always best to open the curtains wide, letting in the natural light. Perhaps even open the windows as this will all help give your holiday home a welcoming natural ‘buy me’ vibe. Ensure the outside of your holiday home is clear and welcoming.
