    Your Pacaso neighbors are families, not corporations. Owners, not renters. Together, they own 100% of their home.

    Economic benefit

    Just like their neighbors, Pacaso owners make large financial investments in their homes and support local businesses.

Part of the community

No one benefits when homes are empty. Pacaso co-owners use their homes year-round, supporting local businesses and building community connections. 

Owners, not renters

Kirk and Sheray quote on pacaso

Forget short-term renters. Pacaso serves homeowners and their families. They are invested in their home and bring an owner’s mindset to their use and care of the property. All owners agree to Pacaso’s policies, which prohibit rentals and large events or parties.

Code of Conduct

Supporting the local economy

Owners drinking wine

Most second homes sit vacant 10-11 months each year. Pacaso homes are fully utilized, meaning owners and their families are patronizing local shops and restaurants in all seasons. In addition, Pacaso employs around 10 local businesses, such as real estate agents, landscapers and property managers, to care for and maintain each property.

Reducing competition for homes

Comparision of a pacaso vs whole home

As demand for second homes continues to rise, vacation communities across the U.S. are struggling with housing shortages and higher home prices. Pacaso helps to relieve this pressure by consolidating eight buyers into one luxury home, removing them from competition for moderately priced homes needed by the local workforce.
