New 2019 – EliteParks Owners App!
Brexit uncertainties, a slow recovery from the 2008 financial crisis, a weak pound, and inflation due to impact on house prices, have all encouraged the recent and rapid increase in holiday home ownership in Britain over the past two years. UK consumers are making more carefully considered choices when it comes to spending their money, and when choosing their next holiday destination.
However, and perhaps not surprisingly, the staycation boom planning of low-cost alternatives to overseas vacations is also met with increasingly sophisticated experiences, and longer-term lifestyle choices, such as holiday home ownership.
In response, many holiday parks have invested heavily in additional stock, site expansions and infrastructure and facilities including on-site shops, restaurants, bars, leisure complexes and recreational facilities.
Holiday home ownership offers an affordable second home alternative to bricks and mortar. Running costs are generally lower and your quality for other unique benefits including leisure club membership, site security, access to owner events and a real sense of community. Additionally, many park operators offer owners the option to earn rental income to offset your site fees through subletting schemes.
As holiday home ownership continues to grow in popularity, we understand more than anyone, that a growth in owners require more management and administration. Which is why at Elite, we have developed an Owners App as an extension of our EliteParks Solution to help reduce the strain on the back office. Your owners are crucial to the success of your business and that’s why our team have developed a tool that will help to keep your business running effectively while providing your owners with the ultimate “valued customer” experience.
