This is the perfect time to enjoy your second home – long winter nights, cozy fires, and special time with family.So why would you sell part of your second home to Pacaso? Because our co-ownership model empowers you to “right size” ownership, keeping up to half of your home, while gaining liquidity and distributing costs with vetted co-owners. Here are four great reasons to list a share of your second home. 

’Tis a record season for second homes

Our new Second Home Sentiment Report shows more people are interested in second homes than ever. More than half of those surveyed (55.7%) say they want to own a second home, up from 46.4% the previous year.  Interest is turning into action across the country. Increased demand for second homes outpaced the demand for primary homes by 50% — an impressive statistic given the hot market for primary homes. Pair a hot market with colder weather, and you can see the temperature is right for selling shares of your second home.  The process is simple: Pacaso purchases your home outright and retitles it into a property-specific LLC with eight equal ownership interests. You can retain the amount of ownership that meets your needs, up to 50%, and Pacaso will find buyers for the rest. Costs are shared, fees are low, and all Pacasos are professionally managed. 

Your home is on someone’s wishlist

Second-home dreams know exactly what they want, and your home could be it. Our Second Home Sentiment Report found they prefer modern (27.9%) and rustic (26.8%) designs. And when it comes to location, homes near a beach or lake top of their list Mountain homes ranked third, followed by country and ranch locations. With Pacaso’s co-ownership model, you can give buyers exactly what they’re looking for while keeping the home you love. 

2021 resolution: de-stress

Second home ownership can be a source of great joy, but it also comes with some pretty big stressors: the cost of maintaining the property, the pressure to use it whenever possible, and the responsibility of dealing with things that go wrong. Enter Pacaso’s modern co-ownership structure. We offer turnkey second homes that are professionally designed, maintained and managed. You can just sit back, relax, and enjoy your second home without the stress. 

Give yourself a present: a second Pacaso!

What’s better than co-owning one second home? Co-owning two Pacasos! With all the money you save by right-sizing your current second home and cutting down on costs, you can share another beautiful Pacaso in a different location.
