Keen golfers often dream of owning the perfect villa within putting distance of the clubhouse of their favourite golf course, but many have difficulty justifying the cost of buying exactly what they want. Sharing a property with other like-minded golfers makes a great deal of sense and new website yours2share.com enables people to find compatible partners.
The website enables users to find a partner or form a syndicate to purchase golfing properties. Members may also advertise shares in properties which they already own to release equity or seek long term fractional rental partners
According to online entrepreneur Sophie Garrett who set up the website: “Golfing properties work particularly well under fractional ownership. The length of the season in many countries such as Spain, Portugal or the USA means that there are plenty of people interested in using golfing properties outside the normal holiday periods. There are currently 30 ads relating to golfing properties on yours2share. Many people cannot justify buying a property outright when they will only use it a few times a year. In scenarios like this, joint ownership with like-minded golf enthusiasts makes perfect sense.”
Sophie explains: “There are two ways of sharing: joint or fractional ownership when two or more people own shares in a property and the use of the asset is split, usually on a time basis, and fractional rental, where the owner rents the property on a repeated basis to one or two others such as one week per month, eight weeks a year, etc”.
Opportunities to share in golf properties currently on the website include quarter ownership of a four bed villa with course views in the Algarve for £250,000 and the chance to purchase half of a two bedroom in Desert Springs Golf Resort Andalucia, Spain for about £49,000.
Alongside property the site also enables its users to advertise and seek shares in boats, aircraft, cars, mobile homes and pets. Extensive guidance and template contracts are also available.
