    Static Caravan Prices

    Hi - I've almost bought a static caravan but have no idea if i'm paying under or over the odds for it. I can't find a site that quotes prices like parkers do for cars. The exact same caravan I'm looking at can be found for sale on the net for between £13k and £31k!! I'm worried that I'm going to get caught out. Can anyone offer any help? Thanks

    You obviously cant read! A con would require payment to have exchanged between 2 parties. I suggest you stick to fighting pirates...

    Prey tell what you are basing your concerns on rather than making brash statements.

    Ok. First thing before even thinking about buying is to check the site rules, ground rent etc and most importantly the age limit. Some places will want you to shift a 10 year old, others don't seem to care. It may not seem important now but as soon as you buy, the value will decrease and very sharply the longer you keep it. You may pay £15k now and in a few years its worth £8k. So do your homework, don't just base the purchase decision on the price of a similar statics as the rules may be different where they are sited which will affect the resale value:thumbsup:

    But you will lose money, it's a big con.

    Some top tips there Shengis, now if only you shaved your hair off you would at the top of my christmas card list...not that I have one.

    Prices should reflect the drop in house prices, so a 20% off pre-property crash prices should be sort after. Don't be scared to ask for more money off too.

    It's a grade 3 now. Got the wife to put the clippers on it the other night. Might post an updated pic when my new 'prison' overalls arrive :lol:

    Good advice from Shengis, do some serious homework before buying, also check insurance, they are easy to break in to.

    Site rules etc. etc.

    Speak with existing owners on the site to find out if there are any real problems that you should be aware of.
