Re: fractional ownership
I'm not familiar with Manhattan real estate , just think it is a destination I'd like to be for a time and think the kind of appreciation I'm used to would be there.*
I'm also not so set on my time frames.* There's probable only three months of the year that I'd slightly prefer not to be in Honolulu and I could definitely spend any time period in NY.* (April, May June,Springtime activities! )(July August, Sept. Central Park picnics sports concerts Fall colors) (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year)(Jan Feb March? Big Fireplace Full Bar!)
At this point I'm more interested in Swapping places . That could potentially result in meeting people that are like minded that I could possibly persue the fractional* option with.* I'd rather put my* own deal together with people that I kinda know(at least by 6 degrees).* I've always been the guy to put ski/rafting/vacations together from a good mix of people.* I think the internet will make that more available over the next few years.* * Might meet some on this board.* KCowan talks about swapping but don't know if they go thru an established service.* I would hope to get into a flexible arrangement that still provides a certain amount of control.*
Maybe within the year when I retire there will be enough interest on this forum to have a Fractional/Swapping/Get my RV while I'm in your boat* category!
