Resale made simple
Pacaso makes it easy to own a second home, and we make selling simple too. After 12 months of ownership, you are eligible to sell at any time at the price you choose.
Resale is fast and streamlined with our established marketplace of interested buyers. In many cases, homes are sold without the need for listing. If we don’t have an active buyer waiting, your ownership will be marketed broadly on Pacaso and third-party real estate sites. As with any home sale, any equity gained is yours.
Pacaso Home Transfer Benefit
More joy, less risk
Start making memories in your second home today — with no regrets. The Pacaso Home Transfer Benefit™ gives you the ultimate in flexibility and peace of mind: If your Pacaso isn’t a perfect fit, you can transfer ownership to a home that’s a better match for your needs or lifestyle within the first year of ownership.
There’s no fee or extra closing period. If you transfer to a more expensive home, you simply pay the difference in share price. If you transfer to a less expensive home, you receive a credit toward future operating expenses.
Easy, equitable scheduling
Pacaso’s SmartStay™ system makes scheduling simple and fair. You’ll have peace of mind knowing you can enjoy your home during the times that matter to you most, and the flexibility to books stays 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 and popular local events). Short-notice stays are booked 2 to 30 days in advance of arrival. (Note: For homes with unsold shares, the short-notice booking window is 2-7 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* at a price of your choosing. We have an active network of interested buyers, and the home will also be listed on Pacaso and promoted across our marketing channels.
*Applies to homes where all ownership interests have been sold. If units are still pending, owners can sell their interest after 12 months of ownership.
What down payment is required to purchase a share of a second home?
Buyers can finance up to 70% of their purchase. A minimum down payment of 30% is required. We offer competitive rates for all financing levels, with preferred rates for buyers paying 30-50% down.
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.
