Feature Article: 13 Essential Questions to Ask When Touring a Fractional Property

by Sherman Potvin

 Touring a Fractional Property

Participating in an Inspection Tour or Discovery Visit at a fractional resort allows you to “try it on” and make sure that the property is the right fit for you and your family. You will have the opportunity to experience firsthand exactly what you might expect as an owner. This is your chance to ask all the right questions, make note of the answers and come to an informed decision.
Below are the 13 essential questions that you should ask during your visit. The answers to these questions should be the foundation for any decision you may make.

1. Is this deeded property?
While most fractional properties are deeded, you still need to ask this question. Deeded property gives your investment a better chance of appreciation and allows you to leave or “will” it to a family member the same way you could a whole-ownership property.
