What is Fractional Ownership?

You may have heard the term “fractional ownership” but what is it, and is it something you would consider when looking at building options? Well, to answer the second half of that question, the first part needs to be addressed.

Fractional ownership is pretty much what the title says, you own a fraction of a cottage. This allows you to use a set number of weeks per year as your very own home away from home. The weeks are set out at the beginning of the year so you have time to plan your holidays. 

“But wait! Isn’t that a timeshare?” 

Nope. A fractional is not a timeshare. Even though the two models do have some similarities, the difference lies in the ownership part. With a fractional, you actually own a part of the building. So over time, if the investment increases, you can yield a return.
