It’s that time of year again when we start thinking about our holidays in the spring and summer months to come. With an ever increasing desire to holiday in the UK rather than travel abroad, we sell many properties of all types to buyers looking for either a holiday home for themselves or a property to let out in the popular short term holiday letting market.
Particularly since the introduction of the additional 3% stamp duty for purchases of second homes, we have seen an increased demand for more affordable holiday chalets in the coastal villages along our East Coast. These generally sell beneath the £40,000 threshold for the additional stamp duty and can provide an excellent holiday letting income or a be a handy, low maintenance holiday ‘bolt-hole’.
We specialise in the sale of chalets in villages such as Bacton, Walcott, Winterton, Hemsby and Scratby and have had many successful sales over recent months in chalet sites including the ever popular Winterton Valley Estate, Belle Aire Park and California Sands. With many waiting buyers, we are always looking for more to sell and welcome the opportunity to offer you a free valuation if you are considering selling your chalet. Just give us a call at any of our four sales offices and we would be happy to help with a free appraisal.

Arriving early for an evening appointment last night on Camperdown, Great Yarmouth I had time to look around the area and appreciate the fantastic architecture.
Camperdown and the properties around the Nelson and Carlton hotels were constructed to rival the great south coast resorts of Eastbourne and Brighton. They were the first phase of a planned development. However, Victorians from the affluent parts of London were not convinced that the slightly longer train journey and slightly lower east coast temperatures were worth it. Many carried on heading south and the mass estate planned for south Great Yarmouth was never constructed.
However, these roads and buildings are a fine example of Victorian architecture and many are Grade II listed.Through the 70’s and 80’s some of the properties fell in to external disrepair, however, most are now in fine condition externally. If you love period property give Camperdown a visit.

An interesting development in the mortgage market!
Barclays have launched an interesting mortgage product that offers to pay buyers stamp duty if they accept a higher interest rate.
The fixed rate mortgage is aimed at first time buyers and existing home owners and allows buyers to recover some or all of their stamp duty on their next home via a cashback scheme.
However, full stamp duty cover will only be available up to £250,000 purchase price.
