Enjoy your own holiday home

Going on holiday at home has never been more popular. It is sometimes impossible to get a holiday home even in the coldest months to get a breath of fresh air by the sea or enjoy a wooded area. If you often go away for a weekend to unwind and you have the money, buying a holiday home is definitely worth considering.

Everywhere in the Netherlands

Holiday homes can be found all over the Netherlands. There are private holiday homes that you can rent out on your own, but there are also, for example holiday homes North Brabant and areas on a holiday park where holiday homes are regularly sold to private individuals. But what should you pay attention to if you want to buy a holiday home and rent it out when you are not using it?

Letting independently

The advantage of buying a second home as a holiday home is that you can decide on the layout yourself. Houses in holiday parks often have a fixed layout and arrangement in terms of furniture. You can make this second home completely your own. However, if you want to rent it out to third parties, make sure not to leave too many personal items in the house. Think of family photos or beautiful heirlooms. If you buy the holiday home just for yourself, you don't have to take this into account.

Of course, you will have to manage the house and possibly a garden yourself. Do take the time to do this regularly to keep the house in good condition. This is beneficial if you ever want to sell it again. In addition, by letting, you keep the rental data yourself. You can, of course, join a website for letting private houses.

Letting via a holiday park

If you have bought one of the holiday homes Zeeland of a holiday park, then you can make all kinds of agreements with the holiday park about renting out your holiday home. Of course, such a holiday home must comply with the interior of the other houses, but sometimes you have some leeway there in terms of furniture. If the house is already furnished, you don't have to do anything else.

Although you will of course clean the holiday home regularly, it is nice to know that the garden of the holiday home, for example, will be maintained by the green management of the holiday park. However, this differs per park, but you can make good arrangements.

Safe holiday home

If you rent out a house, it is nice that the house is also safe to use. This means that there is a fire extinguisher, but also that the house has smoke detectors. Because many people use your home, it is important to keep appliances, such as a cooker, microwave, oven or dishwasher, well maintained. If an appliance breaks down, it is a good idea to replace it or have it replaced as soon as possible to avoid accidents. This way, you can be sure that you enjoy your holiday home to the full.

Good investment

Buying a holiday home is a good investment because the housing market is fairly stable in value and carries less risk. Besides, you always have a holiday home to get a breath of fresh air or go for beautiful walks. If you rent the house out to third parties, you can even earn some money from it. You can put this money back into maintaining the house.

Book your own holiday

If you want to rent out your second home, it is important to book the weeks or weekends you want to spend in your holiday home in advance. If you rent it out yourself, then you have a little better control over that, of course, than if you bought a cottage on a holiday park. Pick one weekend a month, for example, and lay down your long holidays throughout the year. With your own holiday home, you have something to live towards in your busy existence.
