We manage the home, and you own it. It's the modern way to buy and own a second home.
Find your second home with Pacaso
Explore our collection of stunning single-family homes in top second home destinations. We'll help you find the perfect fit, and you decide how many shares you'd like to own.
We create a property LLC for each home, find and vet co-owners, and handle all the sales details. At closing, the co-owners enjoy 100% ownership of the home – Pacaso does not retain any shares.
We take care of furnishings, repairs, utilities and property management – you just show up and relax. Scheduling is easy and equitable with our app and SmartStay™ technology.
We make it simple

With Pacaso, you own a home, not just a block of time. You can book stays throughout the year, not annually. And resale? It's streamlined in partnership with a local real estate agent, and you set the price.
Easy, equitable scheduling
We created the real-time SmartStay system based on feedback from second home owners. Gone are fixed time periods, replaced by a flexible system that lets you book time in your home anywhere from two days to two years in advance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I really have ownership in the home?
Yes. Owning a Pacaso is true real estate ownership. You purchase a share in a property-specific LLC. The home is fully managed and designed specifically for co-ownership.
How do I schedule time to use the home?
You book time using the Pacaso app, powered by our SmartStay™ scheduling system. It’s easy to use and equitable for owners, based on the number of shares you own. The system supports two types of stays: general and short-notice. General stays are scheduled 8 days to 24 months in advance, and each owner has access to a general stay that falls on a special date (e.g., federal holidays). Short-notice stays are booked 2 to 7 days in advance of arrival. See additional scheduling FAQs for more details.
What if I want to sell my ownership in the home?
You can sell at any time after your first 12 months of ownership, at a price of your choosing. You’ll work with a real estate agent, who markets the home just like they would a whole home real estate listing.
What down payment is required to purchase a share of a second home?
Buyers can finance up to 70% of their purchase. A down payment of 30% is required.
Can I finance my second home purchase?
Yes. We have integrated financing available to offer our buyers. You also are welcome to use other sources of capital such as home equity financing or cash.
How are prospective owners evaluated?
We vet all owners, who agree to a common-sense owner code of conduct. The home will be reserved for the exclusive use of owners and their guests.
