Fractional ownership is the fastest-growing segment of the luxury real estate market. The concept is revolutionizing vacation travel because it’s now so easy, economical, and hassle-free to own a vacation home. Studies show most second homeowners use their vacation homes less than 30 days each year. Why be burdened with a whole 12 months worth of hefty mortgage payments, taxes, maintenance fees, and other expenses for a house you visit only a month or so annually?
It simply doesn’t make sense. With your SandCastles fractional ownership of a luxury villa, you pay only for what you will use, enjoying all the satisfactions of true ownership for a mere fraction of the cost. Yacht and airplane enthusiasts discovered years ago that the smartest way to own an expensive asset you don’t use all the time is in partnership with others. Now you too can take advantage of this practical, economical way to own a spectacular vacation home!
