Beach Hut Sunshine Getaway by Heather Hilder on March 19, 2021 “Beach Huts” Sunshine Getaway Are you getting that itchy feeling about needing a post-lockdown sunshine getaway? Where would you like to go next? Dubai, Barbados, Singapore, Gold Coast, Bali? Brighton & Hove for a beach hut sunshine getaway! We locals are well aware of everything Brighton & Hove has to offer, with its abundance of amenities. And we often don’t even worry about atmospheric pressure, forecasts of rain, storms, heavy clouds. You see, people are attracted to the prom exactly for those reasons – in all kinds of weather, the prom is a force of nature. There’s definitely an excitement in the air as we slowly gather pace towards Spring. And, fingers crossed, may we hope of an end to lockdown? Our overseas trips may be curtailed due to travel restrictions, Covid-19 tests, and the hassle of airport queuing, security and so on… Fun sunshine getaway So despite the lure of far-away sunny destinations, I’m sure many Brighton & Hove beach-hutters would agree: “There’s no better place to be, than on the prom”. Breathing in the fresh sea air, capturing the flight of the seabirds, watching in awe the aerial displays of wind-surfers, kite-surfers and aerobic displays of paddle-boarders. Smelling the coffee, even. I do believe that sitting on a deck-chair outside one’s beach hut is time well spent, watching the world go by, doing nothing. When all’s said and done, there’s no better time to start planning your first trip of the year to your beach hut. Fling open the doors! Did you check the condition of your beach hut following the winter winds and cold weather. How much maintenance needs doing? Be sure to attend to those repairs before you take your picnic baskets to your hut for a lazy day at the beach! Beach Hut Demand I’ve seen a pent-up demand from buyers for beach huts since January 2021. No sooner had we shouted ‘Happy New Year’ than my phone started ringing with calls for a Beach Hut. The list is getting longer as the weeks pass. As long as you’re a Brighton & Hove resident, I’ll gladly call you when a beach hut in your preferred location becomes available . What is so surprising is that would-be beach hut owners are considering buying on any part of the prom. Demand is outstripping supply, meaning prices are increasing. Savvy beach hut owners will sell now with prices going up. Selling your Beach Hut? Recent conversations with beach hut owners reveal that they are holding back from selling. These reasons include: “I might want to use it more this year if we can’t get away on holiday” “My family don’t want me to sell” “It’s been in our family for many, many, years…” (i.e. emotional attachment) Beach huts come onto the market throughout the year generally. The period before 1 April (when the Annual Licence Fee is payable) is often busy. If you’d like to join the beach hut sunshine getaway crowd, be sure to let me know you’re looking. You may get an amazing offer for your beach-hut and help someone else’s dreams become a reality. When you ask Callaways to sell your beach hut you can be sure that GDPR and Anti Money Laundering checks are carried out. More importantly, we’ll find a buyer to cherish your much-loved beach hut as much as you have. What are you waiting for?
