What is Fractional Ownership at Lake Tahoe?

With home prices at Lake Tahoe escalating, many buyers are feeling like their dream of owning a home in the basin is slipping away. However, few know about the benefits of a shared or Fractional Ownership purchase.

In most cases, many Bay Area buyers only spend a few set weeks in the mountain, renting their property out the rest of the year. Fractional ownership is a way of just accessing the time you actually use your vacation home.

Fractional Ownership is different from time share because you are actually purchasing an equity based deeded portion of a home or condo. Generally, these can be in shares of 1/8, 1/7, 1/6 or even 1/2 shares. These shares give you access to premium properties located in highly desirable areas on the lake, slopes or on a golf course.

When you consider the expense of renting out your vacation home, using the rental income to offset the cost can sometimes mean you will only break even. In a Fractional Ownership scenario, you might be given one primary week and four additional weeks, plus space available use. The best part is that you will enjoy the appreciation in equity as the property value increase.

In addition to providing deeded ownership, most Fractional Ownership offerings will provide governing documents, use time schedule, a management and cleaning service. Many will have onsite management and some include access to exclusive amenities.
