Holiday Cove Resort Owners Confidence About Future
With the developers confident in growing demand for quality RV sites in Florida, Holiday Cove RV Resort, Cortez, Fla., announced a price increase on selected RV sites effective Nov. 1.
With just 66 sites remaining and with the resort experiencing strong and increasing interest in the purchase and rental of sites, the price increase will bring the site pricing closer in line with the demand, according to a news release.
In today's economy, many RVers are staying closer to home (a new trend known as staycationing) and seeking good locations and value. Many families, empty nesters and retirees are taking to the highways this year. Today's economy might not leave room for a weeklong Caribbean cruise, but a growing number of people have sought more cost-effective vacations in well located RV parks. In addition, Florida lot owner RVers reap the benefit of the Florida lifestyle and beaches without the concerns over property taxes, property insurance or mortgage issues which discourage many potential home buyers.
Holiday Cove was completely remodeled in the last quarter of 2008. In addition to the all new generously-sized brick paver RV sites and patios, the resort has 34 boat slips on an intercoastal canal a quarter mile to the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing from the resort boat docks and canoeing and kayaking along the waterway are just two of the on-site recreational activities available. A newly remodeled clubhouse, heated pool and sun deck and a fitness center are other amenities.
The resort is less than a mile from Bradenton Beach and within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, fishing, boat charters and all water sports. Golf courses, theaters, shopping, spring training baseball and all kinds of festivals and special events are all within minutes of the resort.
"Sales and rentals have been very strong and interest is growing each day," said developer Ed Rymer. "Our phone is ringing off the hook and we know we've got a very unique product in a very exciting location at a great value. RVers are responding."
As ownership RV resorts throughout Florida are cutting prices and giving away all kinds of incentives to get people to buy," said Rymer, "we realize we have a unique product in a great location."
"There's a diminishing supply of quality RV sites in Florida and there are very, very few RV sites in a location similar to Holiday Cove," said David Gorin, Rymer's development partner. "There's no more cost efficient way to assure the availability of an RV site this close to the beach and the Gulf, than to own your own RV site. And with very strong winter and summer demand, the value of Holiday Cove lots is assured."
The new Holiday Cove RV Resort was developed by Rymer, an experienced real estate developer, and Gorin, former president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks & Campgrounds (ARVC), president of Best Parks in America and a well-known consultant in the RV park industry.
Prices at Holiday Cove currently range from $85,500 to $179,000. Price increases on most sites will be in the 5 – 7% range.
