PRLog - Feb. 7, 2011 - Traditionally a slow time for the housing market, the winter is a prime time to buy a holiday home or lodge in the UK according to leisure sales specialist ThinkLeisure.co.uk.

The company, which acts as a one-stop shop for the buying and selling of holiday homes, lodges, caravans, motorhomes, and all things leisure, says that prices through the winter can be up to 30% lower than in the spring/summer with more room for negotiation.
Ed Williams, Director of ThinkLeisure.co.uk, says: “It’s a bit like buying your dream soft top – if you want to get the best price buy in the winter. With the lodges and holiday homes we see in the UK, there are some real bargains to be had over the next couple of months. Many sites are closed until the spring, the summer holidays seem a long way off, and the gloomy weather doesn’t help the price. As a result anyone looking to buy a place has the opportunity to get a lot more for their money.”
Prices for holiday lodges on ThinkLeisure.co.uk currently start from £45,000 for a two-bedroom furnished home in Devon, rising to £375,000 for a three-bedroom luxury lodge in Abersoch, North Wales.
“Prices for UK lodges can vary significantly, but by buying at the right time it is possible to negotiate a better price or get extras included in the sale,” adds Ed. “We’
UK lodges have enjoyed a resurgence over the last few years, particularly at the top end of the market, and with a range of new-build lodge developments across the country there is growing choice for investors.
“A lodge gives investors a lot more for their money in some of the UK’s top locations, and once purchased they can bring in good rental income. Equally, if you’re looking to sell, winter allows more time to negotiate on upgrades or a dream holiday home,” Ed adds.
