The Future is Fractional For Brazil's Hotel Sector in 2018 and Beyond


The concept of fractional ownership started off in the US to to commercialize luxury vacation homes whereby a group of clients could divide maintenance costs,taxes,security etc and use the same property for a given time period per year. Overtime this business model was extended to selling condominium apartments,theme park properties and units in beachfront resorts with hotel facilities.

The model is simple and readily applicable to any tourist related real estate development.

For the developer it is much easier to sell fractionally to raise the necessary capital to execute a project ( if off-plan ) or generate funds from fractional sales as an alternative strategy to sell a hotel asset ( if already built ) For the buyer, you acquire equity ownership in a piece of property that you legally own and receive all the benefits of the investment (including potential for appreciation of your asset ) at a fraction of the price.

This real estate segment is primarily touristic driven with demand for resort hotels and vacation homes in the sun. Brazil has an abundance of beautiful locations for such developments and fractional ownership has seen accelerated growth over the past 5 years despite traditional real estate markets suffering heavily throughout Brazil’s recession.
