Similar to owning a condo (shared ownership), only it's a shared house! This is not a timeshare!
As a lifestyle investment, Shared Ownership makes sense. On average, a new homeowner has all the
expenses of buying and maintaining a new home alone, shared owners don’t have the financial burden of
maintaining the property alone; they simply split the maintenance fees with fellow owners.
Africa Investment Guide’s owners buy a 1/3rd interest in their residence of choice, which allows full
residency each year. Africa Investment Guide’s owners are investing in ‘bricks and mortar’ – an
asset which can be passed on to family. Africa Investment Guide.com properties are owned by their
members, through a US based non-trading company. When members wish to sell, gift or transfer their
membership it is a straightforward process which can also be executed easily from overseas. It does not
involve the complexity or cost of transferring property under the US (American) legal and tax system.
