More Fractional Ownership info

Elite Destination Homes has over 10 years of sophisticated experience bringing liked-minded people together to own a home in a destination they love.

You can choose from our available fractional ownership homes, or fractionalize your vacation home to be part of the Elite Destination Homes collection.

Fractional ownership benefits include:

Easy Travel. Your Elite Concierge will not only schedule your reservation, but also arrange your transportation, provide a pre-grocery shopping, make restaurant reservations, arrange tee-times and excursions, hire baby-sitters and much more.

Professional Care of Your Home and the Partnership. Your shared ownership home is administered under the reputable Elite Management Flag, with all aspects of property and partnership management taken care of on behalf of the Owners.

Free Home Exchange. You have the privilege of exchanging time at your Elite home with another fractional owner to spend time at their vacation home. Elite’s dedicated Owner Concierge handles the trade and makes all the arrangements free of charge.
Elite Destination Homes is a division of Real Estate Equities, which has over 40 years of committed teamwork caring for and optimizing the value of investment real estate.

The Elite Model enables buyers and those they love to own an extraordinary vacation home in their dream destination – a place to build equity and memories alike.

From our first conversation forward, we create a comfortable, collaborative environment intent on pairing you with other like-minded families. Together we will explore what you are looking for in your fractional home – your dream destinations, budget, costs, and service expectations – and help you find the perfect property for you to choose as your vacation home.

Unlike timeshares, which grant as many as 52 parties the right to use a given property for a week annually, Elite owners – limited to six per property – actually own the home itself and get use of the home for longer time periods.

Hallmark features of the Elite model:

  1. There are no assigned weeks in Elite homes. You get to use your vacation home as you would like to, which can change from year to year.
  2. And when you’re not able to enjoy it yourself, Elite rents all unused time to generate rental income for you.

The legal structure of ownership varies by location, as each country in which we operate has unique laws and regulations. However, our legal team is experienced in such real estate transactions around the world, and can answer any questions you might have about a specific Elite Destination Home.

If you already have a vacation home, learn more about what it would look like to fractionalize it.

Does fractional home ownership seem right for you?

Contact Our Fractional Expert

We hope to answer many of your financial questions with the topics below.

It’s important to note that Elite Destination Homes are primarily intended for the enjoyment of their owners, friends and families. Given the volatility of the global real estate market, we cannot make guarantees concerning fluctuations in the value of any given property. That being said, our properties are magnificent and in outstanding locations, both of which favor value appreciation in the long term.

Fractional Ownership Costs

Depending on the home and your ideal ownership stake, ownership interests range from $100,000 to more than $1 million. Generally, a budget of $250,000 will enable a family to become co-owners. This gives you approximately 35 days to use in your new vacation home. Please note, this varies per home.

Financing for Fractional Ownership

Elite Homes available for fractional ownership often include a mortgage option, and qualified owners may elect to finance up to approximately half of their purchase. Terms of this financing vary by property and by geography. We will be happy to share details once your interest and suitability for a given home have been determined.

Annual Expenses

Annual expenses vary widely based on the home, ownership stake and financing. Once the Elite team has helped you determine if its model is a good fit for your goals and needs, we will be happy to share details about annual carrying costs for specific properties that appeal to you.

Maintenance and Management Responsibilities and Costs

The Elite team and its local representatives will manage and maintain Elite Destination Homes to the highest standards. This includes cleaning services between stays, upkeep, capital improvements, the training and oversight of local property managers, managing the property’s budget and providing quarterly reports to owners. The cost of these services is shared by owners, apportioned in accordance with their ownership percentage and their annual use of the home.

Rental Income

In addition to their personal enjoyment of an Elite Destination Home, owners can also earn rental income from their property. Any unused time is rented by Elite on your behalf to offset your carrying costs of ownership. Elite doesn’t charge commissions on the rent we generate for our fractional owners – we pass it all through to you. Please know we are just as pleased if owners use their home 100 percent of the time with no rental activity.

Financial Management of your Home

Elite provides trusted financial management for your home including property budgets, rental income projections, taxes, bill payment, reconciliation, financial reporting and year end tax preparation. We prepare budget and rental income projections for each home annually. Quarterly, an income and expense report is sent to owners to keep you up to date on the financial state of your property.

Selling Your Ownership Stake or Passing It on to Heirs

Elite generally recommends that owners maintain their stake in an Elite Destination Home for at least seven to ten years. However, you are free to sell your fractional interest at any time. You can ask Elite to assist you with the sale, or find a buyer on your own. Elite reserves the right to screen potential buyers for financial qualifications and approve their suitability for partnership in a given home. Owners can also will their fractional ownership of an Elite Destination Home to their heirs and/or estate.

We will provide specific financial information for any Elite Destination Home you may be interested in.

How We Compare

We are often asked how fractional ownership differs from timeshares, destination clubs, and private residence clubs. Each one, under the right circumstances, has its own unique features and benefits, as well as unique limitations and risks. It’s up to the prospective buyer to try them on and find out which one is the right fit.

Timeshares vs. Fractional Ownership

As the name suggests with timeshares, you are buying time not real estate. With a timeshare, you are dividing the time at your home with up to 52 owners, and the purchase price you pay has been inflated so aggressively it is difficult, if not impossible, to recover your initial investment.

The main differences between timeshare and fractional ownership are:

Timeshares grant as many as 52 parties the right to use a given property for a week annually. Elite owners – typically 6 per property – actually own the home itself and have 5 – 10 weeks to spend vacationing at their home.

Timeshares are usually located in hotels or condominium communities. Elite’s fractional homes are stand-alone homes and villas, except in cities like Paris and New York.

Timeshares are typically priced at 3-10 times the actual value of the underlying real estate, forcing users to pay a premium for less-than-premium properties. By contrast, our fractional homes are priced to reflect their intrinsic value, plus a modest 20% markup at the time of development.

Timeshares have assigned weeks. Weeks are not assigned in Elite homes. You get to choose when you want to use the home, and it can vary from year to year.

Timeshares require a seven-night stay. As an Elite owner, you can stay as long or as short as you would like.

Timeshares and Elite fractional homes both provide exchange opportunities.

Private Residence Clubs vs. Fractional Ownership

Private residency clubs, which are often known by their acronym PRC are run by highly respected hospitality companies, such as Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, Four Seasons, Hilton and Starwood, and enjoy first-class amenities. However, these homes are often units in a resort or a multi-unit building that have been developed exclusively for the purpose of a fractional ownership model.

While these models do typically allow for deeded ownership, it can be difficult to realize the benefits of one’s investment due largely to the developer’s high profit margins and the management team’s corporate overhead and marketing budgets.

Historically, the prices of PRC’s range from $200,000 to upwards of $2,000,000 for 4 weeks of use. By contrast, Elite Destination Homes offers prospective buyers a price that is more closely related to the intrinsic value of the property itself.

Destination Clubs vs. Fractional Ownership

Destination clubs and fractional ownership are two are very different models. The biggest difference is that you do not actually own anything in a Destination Club; you are actually paying for access to use the club’s vacation homes. With fractional ownership, you actually own real estate.

Destination clubs resemble country clubs – they have members that are charged a large initiation fee and annual membership dues to gain access to the club’s vacation homes. They often rely on a constant influx of new members and their cash – a model that degrades exclusivity and, inevitably, the users’ experiences because there are too many members, and the homes you desire are not available for you to use.

Leaving a destination club may take a long time, as you get put on an exit waiting list and are only allowed to leave when a certain number of new owners have joined the club. This creates long waiting lists that may take a few years for you to reach the top.

In the event that a destination club fails, its members’ investments are at risk. In 2006, there were 23 major destination clubs worldwide. Since then, only three major clubs have not gone through a merger, major restructuring, or bankruptcy. The financial impact on members of these troubled clubs has been serious, ranging from special assessments and increased annual dues, to the loss of all of their money, which typically ranges from $300K to $600K.

By contrast, Elite Destination Homes’ simple, fractional ownership model is actual ownership of a second home with a few other like-minded families with a clear operating agreement governing the home, including the ability to sell your home at any time.

We hope this overview of the various types of ownership is helpful. For further clarification, feel free to contact us.

  • Email the Elite Concierge with which home you would like to visit. stay@elitedestinationhomes.com

OWNER TESTIMONIALS

TESTIMONIALS – June 2020

Raymond & Cathy W., San Francisco, CA, Owners of Rue Saints Peres, Paris, France
Own The location of the apartment was so much better than that we had expected. EVERYTHING was within walking distance from the Metro, shopping, groceries and restaurants. Our apartment is HUGE. Plenty of space for the whole family, very comfortable and there was so much light all throughout the apartment. Opening the double windows to take in the street atmosphere and just soaking in the French culture was fantastic. Although we have only been at our apartment a couple of times, we hope to utilize our share fully in the coming years. We look forward to not only enjoy the apartment but also look forward to potentially leveraging our share to exchange for another location.

Bob H. & Susan S., Minneapolis, MN, Owners of Rue de l’Universite, Paris, France
In 2011, I purchased a share of a beautiful 3 bedroom Paris home only because it was promoted by Elite.  The home is professionally managed and maintained by Elite and its Paris affiliate.  Everyone at Elite and the concierge in Paris are wonderful.  Elite always keeps you informed of all the aspects of ownership including timely financial statements.  It recently coordinated a major rehab of the apartment and furnishings. The concierge service is on par with the best hotels in Paris.  I know of no management that comes close to the personal service Elite provides.

Josh & Leann N., Owners of Palmilla Retreat, Cabo san Lucas, Mexico
Because of our fractional ownership, Palmilla has become a home-away-from-home not just for us but for our entire family. Our kids have loved growing up there knowing everyone, making memories, and having a place to break from their hectic lives. We not only use it for family times but also for birthdays and anniversaries.

Eric S., Calabasas, CA, Owner at Villa La Percha, Turks & Caicos
Now that our adult children our scattered about, it’s nice to have a second home where we can all get together, yet still have the space to do our own thing.  We especially like the evenings strolling on an empty Taylor Bay watching the sunset, and walking back home to barbecue some fresh local fish accompanied by a cold Turks Head beer.

Mimi C., Toronto, Canada, Owner of rue de l’Universite, Paris, France
The opportunity to travel elsewhere has been amazing through the home exchange programs. No more sorting through rentals for something suitable and well kept, and being disappointed.  All the Elite Destination Homes are of such high quality they take your breath away, and the Concierge reception makes traveling to a new place a wonderful experience….and so easy to arrange, since Elite does all the work! We’re looking forward to our next trip.

Rod & Cathy S., Kendallville, IN, Owners of Villa La Percha, Turks & Caicos, Caribbean.
Kathryn and Crew, The villa in the Turks & Caicos was fantastic. We lived outdoors in the pool, hot tub and ocean. We watched the sunset almost every night and we even roasted marshmallows over the fire pit with our grandkids. The villa was amazing.

Gene & Nancy H., San Francisco, CA, Owners of Rue de l’Universite, Paris, France 
For many years we have wanted to own in Paris, and now we do! Our home is perfect and fulfills our every dream.  We arrive and all is awaiting.  Elite meets us to assure all is well and always leaves us a small welcome home gift of delicious cookies, bottled water, and a bottle of wine.  Being welcomed home is far more exciting than even coming home.  We are in a perfect location with grocery store nearby, many restaurants, and a few blocks from our quiet neighborhood is the exciting St. Germain des Pres with cafes and bistros to explore and enjoy.  We can walk to the best fromagerie I can imagine, a great fish market, special vegetable market, and of course several bakeries.  The entire tempo is changed.  We are at home so the rush to get out evaporates.  Just being home in Paris redefines relaxation and enjoyment.

Since we share the home with like-minded people, there is a great repository of restaurant cards for us to peruse, and after a great meal at a new place, we add to the selection with a few notes for others.

I cannot say enough about Elite.  They are professional of course but also they are more importantly family.  Every detail is addressed immediately.  No question goes unanswered.  Our Paris managers are terrific, speak fluent English, and even put up with our insistence on speaking French.

I must also add that buying in France is filled with difficulties if you are from another country.  The tax and inheritance law is quite different, and Elite has carefully developed a plan and approach that protects us and simplifies the buying, owning, and when ready, selling.  This part is less romantic but without Elite it would be very difficult and expensive, and a poor decision would be even more expensive.  Elite has removed all obstacles and opened the door to our dreams.

OLD FRACTIONAL TESTIMONIALS – 2018 or older

Brad & Peggy S., Minneapolis, MN, Owners of Palmilla Retreat, Los Cabos, Mexico.
Kathryn and Team – We feel blessed to own such a beautiful home in a lush green setting with a view of the ocean and our own pool in Los Cabos. The Concierge services made our stay extra special. From the moment we arrived in Cabo to the day we left, the services rendered by your Team were beyond reproach! Everyone was incredibly efficient and attentive, service was at its premium and we felt most valued and appreciated. I have nothing but superlative praises for the entire team. Thank you so very much for taking such good care of us and for making our first stay at our new Los Cabos home so memorable.

Steven and Michele S., Minneapolis MN owners of Casa Celina, Los Cabos, Mexico.
My wife and I consider ourselves incredibly lucky to own at Las Ventanas Resort in Los Cabos. Avid travelers, we’ve had the good fortune to vacation in some amazing places around the world. Without question, Las Ventanas is by far the most extraordinary resort we’ve ever experienced. It is truly a paradise. The warm and friendly staff are very knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful. The resort’s restaurants offer distinctive cuisine that is simply sublime. We had a difficult time getting out of the bathwater-warm pools and the lazy hammocks on the beach. They’re addictive! And lastly, our condo is amazing! I especially loved the gourmet kitchen! We can’t wait to return!

Mimi & Wayne C., Toronto, Canada, Owner of rue de l’Universite, Paris, France.
Hi Kathryn – I just had to tell you about our stay at rue de l’Universite. First, the apartment is just beautiful and so comfortable on all levels.  We loved every minute of it.  Your generous gift of wine, expresso and Laduree macaroons were all there on arrival and we really appreciated the special gesture to make myself and my family feel so welcome. We saw quite a bit of the city, shopped, ate at bistros, saw the sights, etc. The Thanksgiving dinner went off really well.  We cooked everything including a 10 lb. turkey with dressing and gravy. The Concierge was amazing. He even arranged for extra chairs as we had 10 people for Thanksgiving dinner.  We just love our new Paris apartment.

Julie W., Sioux Falls, SD, Owner of Villa La Percha, Turks & Caicos, Caribbean.
Our first stay at Villa La Percha was simply incredible! We walked into our home and there was a basket of fresh fruit and a beautiful bouquet of flowers sitting on the counter that lasted all week – what a great touch! Kerry, your local Concierge is so pleasant and fun to work with and always accommodating with anything we needed. The wonderful thing about La Percha is the consistency; everyone remembers us, makes us feel welcome and truly seems happy to have us there. It was a wonderful stay and I am looking forward to many more trips to the Turks.

John D., Ontario, Canada – Owner of Rue de l’Universite, Paris, France.
We just returned from our apartment in Paris, and we love it. It is truly a wonderful place. We trusted that you would take care of our home, and you do. It looked incredible when we arrived. Your staff in Minneapolis and in Paris add great value to the ownership experience.

RENTAL TESTIMONIALS – OLD 2018 or older

Hi Kathryn – I just wanted to thank you personally for affording me the opportunity to stay at your Turks & Caicos villa! My daughter, her two girlfriends, and I thoroughly appreciated every moment at La Percha. It surpassed our expectations! The villa is very well appointed, and the location was incredible – with the ocean on one side and Taylor Bay on the other. You run a first-class operation! Darlene G., Montreal, Canada

We had a wonderful stay and were very comfortable in your lovely Paris apartment. We hope to return and stay there again. Thanks! Lisa Mennet, Washington D.C.

Kathryn – We had a fabulous time at the villa in Naples. We got great service from Lee and Wendy locally and the location was wonderful for the occasional stroll to the beach. All in all, we couldn’t have been more
pleased with the villa for our family. It is truly a deluxe unit. John Buckner – California

Our family surprised my wife with a week stay at Elite’s Las Mañanitas Penthouse in Cabo for her 50th birthday. The property was just what we wanted – private, quiet and spacious. It was an event week with my son proposing to his girlfriend on Lovers’ Island, massages on our private lanai, dinners on the rooftop deck, horse back riding at sunset on the beach, parasailing and more. If someone is wanting the perfect beach rental for a week with friends or family, Las Mañanitas Penthouse is sure to please. Brent Nerland, North Dakota

Kathryn & Crew – Wanted to let you all know we had an awesome time this past week in Turks.  The villa definitely looks great and we thoroughly enjoyed the relaxing and private serenity of Osprey.  Please extend our thanks to the owners for providing the week to us and also thanks to you all for following up with me when necessary and being responsive to our requests and concerns. Looking forward to spending time at Osprey again…Eric, Brian, Carl & Tom

MANAGEMENT TESTIMONIALS – OLD 2018 or older

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and your team for taking on our home and making it part of your portfolio. So often we are quick to let people know when something is wrong or we have a complaint. I think it is very important to let people know their work is appreciated and send out a thank you now and then for the good stuff as well.  You have made this venture so easy, yet so exciting for me.  I have enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to seeing the rental income results.  Casa Tanglewood looks amazing on all the marketing sites you have put us on. You are doing a great job. Gael C., Alberta, Canada

Owner Reviews

Each time we return to Paris, we discover something unique or special about our neighborhood.  Just around the corner we’ve found clothing stores we love, cafes we return to, and a sense that we are getting to know the city.  One of the best bakeries in Paris (Poilâne) is just two short blocks away.  It’s now a mainstay for a leisurely breakfast of pastries while we plan the day ahead.  Le Grand Epicerie is just a few blocks further, where we’ve gone to get everything from the day’s groceries, to Christmas dinner with our family, to an extravagant picnic we enjoyed with friends in the gardens of Versailles.  We love having a place to call our own in the heart of Paris.

Brian C. & Jeff M., San Francisco, CA, Owners of Rue Saints Peres, Paris, France

Terrific NYC location, close to Lincoln Center, TKTS, Central Park and museums!  Excellent hotel service and fitness center!!   And just across the street from that big beautiful Columbus statue!!

Gregg S., Fort Meyers, FL , Owner at One Central Park Place, Manhattan, New York

We love having a “place of our own” tucked away on a quiet street right in the heart of Paris.  Especially when our daughter was small, we appreciated making coffee and breakfast in our own kitchen and then wandering with her through the neighborhood Sunday market to purchase a meal for dinner to enjoy with candles and a favorite bottle of wine purchased from a shop around the corner. Family time is even more special when it’s enjoyed in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!
