The tension in international markets driven by the conflict in Ukraine, together with the existing volatility in the energy market, and still the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, sum a further dose of uncertainty when deciding to buy a second home. In this post, we will try to give you some advice on the criteria to take into account when buying a new property.
Having a second home is a very attractive option for many families, as it guarantees them a place to rest and disconnect from everyday life. In addition to providing a space for disconnection, away from the hustle and bustle of the city, second homes in co-ownership revitalize communities, bringing life and economic dynamism to rural or tourist areas.
Each Secconda home comes with a property manager, and you might be asking yourself: what do they do exactly? The job of a property manager is to handle the day-to-day maintenance, while we take care of the operational necessities of your home, so you don’t have to! They are specialists in handling all aspects of a building, such as maintaining safety standards and overseeing repairs.
Each Secconda home is under a property-specific Property Company that has a reserve bank account funded by the co-owners of the property to cover replacements, repairs, and other large unexpected expenses. These funds are usually kept in cash, in a savings account, to keep the money safe and accessible.
Second homes have been obtained since time immemorial for rest and relaxation, as a way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, the experience can sometimes be tainted by worry over chores, bills, repairs, taxes, and other time consuming aspects of home ownership. Secconda co-ownership eliminates all those problems for you, by handling them, and leaving you to the best part of second home ownership: enjoyment.
The Secconda co-ownership system may at first seem similar to having a timeshare, since the home is not fully yours, it is shared. However, there are five key reasons why co-ownership is a better fit for most: with Secconda you actually own a part of a second home, you may use your home recurrently throughout the year, there will be a maximum of 8 co-owners for each Secconda home, every home is carefully curated like a piece of art, and reselling your share of a Secconda is as simple as selling a whole home.
Easy and equitable scheduling are at the core of the Secconda experience. We want to make sure that when you are using your second home, you can relax and enjoy. After all, that is what a second home is all about, getting away from the hustle and bustle with those who are special to you.
