Christmas. It’s a time where we all come together as a family. In fact I’d like to be able to arrange a couple of big holidays for us all every year. That got me thinking about the best way to do this. I think I’ve come up with the solution. Rather than plan holidays every year, I could just buy a holiday home. That way I can have the perfect getaway for the whole family and it can also be quite a nice little income. It’s something I’m seriously considering and I might start moving towards this idea at the end of next year. For now I’ve been looking at what I would have to do.
Choose A Destination
As much as I would love a home somewhere tropical, I think it’s better to buy a home in England or wherever you live. I’ll say a little more about this further down, but it will certainly take out the stress of travelling with kids. One drive and you’ll be where you need to be for a relaxing getaway. The question then is where in England I might be. I suppose I would love a place down on the south coast. Somewhere, where during the summer the wind is cool and the sun is hot. I might even give surfing a go. I’m not sure if they have scuba diving down there though I’m willing find out. But as I said, as long as we’re together as a family the location doesn’t matter to me.
Buying A Place
Next, I’ll need to think about buying a place. Hoburne Holiday Parks have got some wonderful little holiday homes on sale at great prices. I’m quite drawn to them because they are in picturesque locations and the interiors look stunning. But I will of course be searching far and wide before I commit to a final decision. You have to think about cost and the expense of upkeep. The cheapest I’ve seen are around forty thousand but I think I’d like one a little larger, so I’ll have to start saving. I might hold off on holidays for a couple of years so that I can afford it. Or, I might just dig into my savings. After all, you only live once.
Paying The Price
Once you have bought the home, you can make back some of the money you spent on it. You can rent it out when you’re not using it. You will have to take on the responsibilities of making sure it’s fit for purpose. But you’ll still earn quite a nice little income. Particularly if you buy a home in a popular destination for holiday goers like Cornwall or Devon.
This is just an idea I’m throwing around, but I’m sure you can see the appeal. It would be lovely to own a little home away from home for you and your family, wouldn’t it?
