Those purchasing a holiday home will have their own unique set of requirements; in recent years holiday homes have in fact been viewed as a good investment property type. For many though a second home is purchased for dual purpose to serve as a holiday home for them and their family whilst also allocating weeks through the year for the property to be let to holiday goers.
In Norfolk we also see a lot of clients simply purchasing a second home for their own regular use as an escape from their busy lives.
Depending on the driving factors the property needs to meet certain criteria to conform with regulations in place when letting a property to the public. The holiday home also needs to appeal to visitors meaning location and property type need to be considered logically.
