Enjoy a second home come rain or shine
As people start to return from their summer holidays over the next few weeks, many will have spent their break enjoying the coast, attractive villages and rural idylls, as the staycation trend continues. For those keen to continue to enjoy the delights of the great British landscape, come rain or shine, purchasing a second home in one of these destinations could be the answer. According to Dawn Carritt, Director at Jackson-Stops: Providing the location of a second home is good, then the long term gain is hugely appealing. Second homes in the UK can be seen as both a financial and enjoyable lifestyle investment. The rent obtained from a second home can provide a good supplementary income. Currently there are some classic holiday homes for sale at very attractive prices through our network of offices.
