Do mobile homes depreciate in value?

Yes. Holiday homes do depreciate in a similar way to vehicles and especially for the first year or so due to tax payable but this can even out over a period of time and when considering used values for resale. The park on which the holiday home is situated; the pitch, its environment and its ambiance are very important factors in dictating the resale value.

There are a number of options open to you as an owner. All sales must go through the Park office:

  • Pinewoods will buy back your holiday home from you.


Can we let our mobile home to a third party?

No. You may allow the use of your holiday home to family only, however we do not allow the commercial letting of holiday homes to take place this is to preserve the peaceful nature of the Park.
