Vacation Ownership Alternatives Demystified


BURLINGTON, Vt., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ — Luxury Fractional Guide, in partnership with Elite Destination Homes, announces the release of the first comprehensive vacation ownership comparison handbook for consumers, “Vacation Home Concepts Clarifier: How to Choose a Vacation Investment.” This handbook was compiled to help consumers make the best vacation ownership decisions to fit their lifestyle and financial goals. It explains and compares the often confusing array of new vacation real estate options being offered today.

The 2007-2008 “Vacation Home Concepts Clarifier,” authored by Bill Bisanz, Founder and CEO of Elite Destination Homes, educates consumers with detailed definitions of the various vacation investment options which include vacation rentals, time shares, destination clubs, sole ownership properties, private co-ownership properties, private residence clubs, fractional ownership properties, and condo-hotels. “People were coming to us completely confused by the proliferation of vacation home offerings available,” says Bisanz. “It seemed like there was a real need to clarify the products on the market.”

Using a variety of proprietary tools such as the Time-Equity Continuum(SM), this 47-page guide illustrates and compares the investment and travel implications of each vacation ownership option. Through key travel and investment driver rankings and individual category report cards, readers will come away from this guide armed with the knowledge they need when entering the vacation real estate market.

“Investing in alternative vacation real estate is an increasingly popular lifestyle choice,” says Sherman Potvin, Founder of Luxury Fractional Guide. “This handbook is a necessary tool for consumers who are interested in exploring the many options available. It explains all of the factors that should be considered before making a vacation ownership purchase in a clear, concise, easy-to-understand format.”
