The UK’s largest independent holiday home management firm has announced an exclusive partnership, to support holiday homeowners, with the North’s leading estate agency to bring a new service offering to support buyers and sellers of holiday homes.
The most recent Statista Market Outlook revealed that 15 million people used a holiday rental in the UK in 2022, with experts predicting that this will likely exceed 16.5 million this year and 16.67 million by 2027.
The strategic partnership will see Bradley Hall’s clients receive expert analysis on the viability of holiday homes and help them better market properties.
Return on investments
Host & Stay prides itself on ‘making it more affordable for holiday owners to manage and rent out their properties, while enjoying a greater return on investments’ and believes the partnership with Bradley Hall will provide a major boost to the sector.
Dale Smith, CEO of Host & Stay, said: “At Host & Stay, I’m thrilled about our collaboration with Bradley Hall, as we strive to offer people invaluable insights into holiday home investments.
“Our forecasts, expert analysis, and exclusive packages are designed to simplify the holiday home rental journey for both sellers and buyers. It’s an exciting time to invest.”
According to experts at Bradley Hall, this has already had a positive impact on the firm, with the business receiving an increase in let related enquiries over the past 12 months. And with the new Host & Stay partnership set to go live this month, the company has high hopes for the new service.
Angus Todd, director of Bradley Hall Alnwick, said: “We’ve seen a real trend in people purchasing homes that they can let for income while using them as a second home for a proportion of the year. This partnership with Host & Stay will help us to capitalise on that.
“By combining our local expertise with Host & Stay’s proficiency in the holiday home and short let market, we are confident that we will create a real win-win situation for property owners seeking to tap into new investment opportunities across the North of England.
“It’s a really exciting deal for everyone involved.”
The two companies are hosting a series of events at Bradley Hall’s Alnwick and Gosforth branches over the coming months, offering buyers and sellers a chance to speak to Bradley Hall’s expert estate agency teams, Host & Stay reps and interior designers from Styled Interiors.
Angus added: “Whether you’re an experienced investor looking to streamline operations or someone simply exploring the idea of getting into the industry, these events will really help open your eyes to the support and opportunities available.
“With demand in the UK showing no signs of slowing down, there’s never been a better time to invest in holiday homes and short term let properties in the North of England, so I’d encourage anyone interested in exploring the market to come and see what it’s all about.”
