Investing In a Holiday Home – Profitable and Steady

Investing In a Holiday Home – Profitable and Steady

In this article, we will discuss why you should consider investing in a holiday home. There are three ways how you can make use of your holiday home, which are: for private use only, a combination of personal use and rental purposes, and for full rental purposes. For this article, we will mainly focus on the last reason, for full rental purposes only. Of course, it’s nice to have a holiday home where you can relax every now and then, but if you want to receive most of the interest, you should fully rent your holiday home.

Financial benefits

Having your money in your savings account is no longer profitable nowadays. More people are looking for ways to make money with their money. Investing in a holiday home is getting more popular as an alternative for savings on a bank account. When you invest in a holiday home, there are a few financial benefits, such as:

  • A very attractive and steady average return of 6% over ten years for the full rental.
  • As soon as you fully rent your holiday home, you can reclaim the VAT.
  • Over time, your investment can increase in value. So it’s possible that you can potentially make a profit when selling the holiday home.

Investing in a holiday home is one of the first steps of expanding your real estate portfolio. Besides, when you own a holiday home, and you fully rent the house, you will generate a passive and steady income without too much effort.

No headaches

It’s possible to buy a holiday home in the middle of nowhere, where you have to manage the house yourself. Or you can buy a holiday home in a recreation park. When you buy a house in a park, one of the most significant advantages is that you don’t have to deal with the problems, which means no headaches for you as a homeowner. The park is doing the management, and they will make sure that the house is rented for most of the time. Besides, they will deal with problems like maintenance and everything.

These are significant advantages when investing in a holiday home. If you are going to invest in regular real estate, you may have to deal with rent commission issues or, in the worst-case, damage or hemp farms in your home. You don’t have these risks at a recreation park.


Due to the Coronavirus, more people enjoy a holiday in their own country. ‘Staycation’ is a whole new concept. People aren’t even allowed to go abroad, and because of the virus, more people find it safer to stay in their own country. So a lot of domestic recreation parks are fully booked. People are re-discovering their own country.
This means that if you invest in a holiday home now in your own country, the chances are that it will be fully booked for the whole year, which means that you will generate a lot of income.

Max Property Group – Zuytland Buiten

Zuytland Buiten is located near Rotterdam and has been operational since 2005. The holiday park will expand from the current 105 to 180 units, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2022. ‘A great investment opportunity,’ says Max Property Group, responsible for the sale.

From Zuytland Buiten, various attractions are only a 30-minute drive away, including the centre of Rotterdam, Europoort, and the port of Rotterdam. The holiday park has been operational since 2005 and is managed by an internationally renowned organization. Due to the excellent location just outside the centre of Rotterdam, many holiday homes are inhabited by expats working in the region.

The sale of holiday homes is made entirely through the real estate crowdfunding platform Max Crowdfund. You can create an account for free and reserve one of the homes quickly and easily on this platform. The platform is completely transparent. In other words, everyone can see when and how many holiday homes have been reserved at any time.

Reserve a lot in 4 steps

You can easily reserve your lot in four steps:

  • Create an account on Max Crowdfund.
  • Go through all stages of the KYC (Know Your Customer) and link your bank account.
  • Deposit € 5000 into your account and make a reservation without obligation.
  • After making a reservation, we will contact you to make an appointment and reserve a lot at the recreation park.

Depending on your financial position, you can have up to 75% of the purchase amount financed, including 21% VAT. You can reclaim the VAT from the tax authorities if the house is rented out for at least ten years. This only applies if you only rent out your holiday home to third parties through operator Landal Green parks and not for your use.
