Fractional Vacation Ownership

One of the top ways to own a gorgeous vacation home is with fractional ownership. "Private residence club" is another term often used in place of fractional, but it means the same thing. These are similar to timeshares, but the fractional properties are generally going to be upscale luxury properties. The amount of time that you are buying in the vacation home is greater as well – usually between four and twelve weeks. Look at all of the different benefits that you will find when you choose this route for your vacation home.

Great Amenities at the Locations

A reason cited for buying fractional properties is often amenities. Most of the options that are available will have a wide range of high quality amenities that will be able to make quite a difference in your life. Some of the sites might have a spa and fitness center, a clubhouse and the types of services that you would normally expect from a 5-star hotel. These are amenities that you would simply not be able to have available if you owned an entire vacation home or even a condominium in the area.


Four of the Best Reasons to Consider Fractional Ownership

Have you ever dreamed of owning a vacation home? If you have, then you might’ve started to crunch the numbers and found that having the luxury vacation home you wanted might be doable financially, but it really made little financial sense! While you want to have all of the amenities that you could find in a top of the line resort in a private residence that you own, you are only going to be vacationing for a relatively small portion of the year. You would have to buy an entire home that you would only use occasionally.

Fortunately, you do have much better options. You can look into fractional, where you have partial ownership in a vacation home. This option is going to provide you with some great benefits, as you can see.


Buying a vacation Property With Family and Friends

Have you thought about getting a timeshare for your family vacation spot? Timeshares can be a great solution to those who are looking for a nice and simple way to vacation each year. Buying into these properties means that you will always know you have a place to stay when you go on your trip. It also means that you do not have to worry about overspending on an actual vacation home that you would only be able to use for a short time each year.

One of the things that some people are doing is buying timeshares with their family and friends, and it might be an option that you want to explore.

Top 5 Reasons to Buy a Timeshare
Have you been thinking about buying a timeshare recently? Those who are looking for a smart way to vacation at their favorite destination each year would do well to consider some of the many benefits that timeshares are able to offer. Here are five of the top reasons that you might want to choose one of these properties.

Afford a Great Property

When you choose to buy into a timeshare, you are going to be able to afford a great property. It is going to be possible to find a property that has luxury amenities that you might not be able to afford otherwise. Buying the timeshare is going to be much less expensive than it would be if you were to buy a second vacation home that you are only going to be using for a week or two out of the year.

Will your timeshare save you even more this year? According to MSNBC, ConTech Construction and Travel & Leisure, 2012 may be the year of the timeshare makeover.

The project was so successful, it was named the 2011 “Project of the Year” by the International Concrete Repair Institute; the first time a timeshare has ever won this award.

Perspective Magazine reports:
Since the renovation, the resort’s rental revenues have experienced a 22 percent increase generating $52,000 over budgeted revenues. The electricity consumption has decreased by 25 percent, corresponding to $40,000 savings in only 9-months. The association hospitality expenses (guest compensation for problems related to the resort amenities) have decreased by 50 percent compared to 2009.  Maintenance payroll also decreased by 24%, due to fewer problems and service calls from guests.
