After years of working, you will want your retirement to be as relaxing as possible. Retirement park homes are perfect if you’re looking for a better life at a price you can afford. The below will help you with any questions you may have.
Where Will I Find Park Homes?
Park homes are situated in residential communities, are usually located away from the big city bustle, and offer easy access to the countryside. Don’t think you’ll be isolated though, as many parks are strategically situated near thriving towns. If you have friends and family in the city, major roads are often only a short distance away.
Who Will I Have as Neighbours?
In choosing a park home, you’re choosing a lifestyle that prioritises relaxation. The great news is your neighbours have the same idea. There’s much to be said about living amongst like-minded people that have chosen to retire and enjoy park life, you’ll find it easy to make friends with like-minded people.
Am I Suited to a Park Home?
Park homes are suited to anybody who wants the best out of their retirement. If you envisage hours strolling down country lanes, a park home is for you. If you’d rather spend time shopping, enjoying a movie, or watching the world from a café, there’ll usually be a town nearby. If you’re focused on an active retirement, you’ll find parks near golf courses or fishing spots, whatever you’re looking to continue throughout your golden years, there’s always a park to suit your requirements, it’s just a case of finding the right one.
What Amenities Are Available?
This usually depends on the park, but your needs will certainly be catered to. If security is of concern, many parks have electronic gates and barriers, as well as CCTV systems. Utilities are often organised directly with your energy provider, and a bus stop can usually be found nearby. If you have a pet, many parks will allow them to join you in your retirement, although this is at the park owners discretion. Purchasing a park home means enjoying your retirement, and those managing the park will have this as their primary focus.
What if I Can’t Sell My Current Home?
This won’t be a problem if you find a park owner that offers a part-exchange. This scheme means the park will purchase your existing home at up to 100% of market value, in part exchange against any new park home. It could be just the ticket if you’re seeking a new lifestyle and better yet if like many others you’re looking to downsize, this could mean an equity release offering you some extra money to spoilt you and the loved ones to a holiday or even treat yourself to a new car.
