Scottsdale, Arizona is an extremely popular place for second homes and retirement communities. It has repeatedly been called one of the most livable cities in the country. It is also home to 200+ golf courses, vibrant nightlife, and plenty of beautiful and quiet neighborhoods.

Fractional ownership of a vacation home in Scottsdale is an innovative way to invest in a luxury property without worrying about maintenance and managing it. You’ll have full access to a vacation home for a portion of a year, without having to arrange for upkeep. Shared ownership of a vacation property lets you visit the property during a scheduled time, and share expenses with all owners. After the property se lls at an agreed-upon time, all owners share in the equity.

Scottsdale is known as an idyllic retreat due to its mild, sunny winters and the 330 days of sunshine per year. The advantage of fractional ownership is that your costs are proportional to your ownership share, so you’ll only pay for the weeks or months that you live there.
