FOREIGN NATIONALS - Purchasing a 2nd home or investment property couldn't be easier. You can pay Cash or take out a US Loan. Cash is King! Contact Liz Appling to discuss this further. Usual down payment for Foreign Nationals is 30-40%.
FRACTIONAL OWNERSHIP - Have you ever considered owning a property with several others and sharing the costs? Fractional or Tenant In Common ownership reduces the costs and ongoing expenses of ownership to the time period you are in residence. You have the rights and freedoms of outright ownership for the time period which you elect to purchase AND you share the running costs and maintenance problems with others. Each TIC owner (ideally 4-6) purchases an undivided ownership interest. 4 owners would each own a quarter interest matched to a 3-month occupancy period. A comprehensive and well conceived set of recorded covenants provides for the management, use rules, and administration of the property, including the funding of reserves to assure the upkeep of the property, furniture and accessories. A concierge company provides the management, weekly cleaning, and maintenance to assure a hassle-free ownership and occupancy experience. Each TIC interest is freely transferable, just like a full ownership deed.
RENTALS - We have many properties available for ANNUAL or SEASONAL rental. Contact Liz Appling for further information.
