This site contains information on all types of fractional real estate and shared property ownership.

Our articles include information on tenancy in common (also known as tenants in common and TIC), fractional vacation homes and clubs, equity sharing, homeowner associations, investment LLCs and partnerships, syndication, and crowdfunding. We provide both basic information for homeowners or home buyers with no real estate background, and more sophisticated information for developers, syndicators, real estate professionals and attorneys.
