Fractional Ownership guide offered by World Class Group.

28th January 2010

As the after shocks of the financial markets and real estate sectors begin to somehow settle down, it becomes clear to most investors that change is the only constant that they can rely upon.

Few spaces in the economy have been spared from the frigid effect of the withdrawal of confidence by investors and consumers, which has created a domino effect globally. Real estate continues to go through an incredible metamorphosis.

One trend though, although was gaining in popularity prior to the downslide, was using partnerships in the acquisition of buying second homes. This is widely known as Fractional Ownership, and is becoming more popular than ever as now second home buyers are now being give the option of a much lower entry fee to command a destination property for a month of holidays per year.

According to the author of the Power of Property Partnerships, Michael J. Tolan, new opportunities for developers and consumers will emerge during 2010.

"We forecast growth in Fractional Ownership now that the bottom of the market has been identified in areas such as Dubai, Thailand, and Egypt in the coming 12 months." said Tolan.
