Explanation

"Green" issues

It's hard to make a case that any form of second home ownership is really environmentally friendly.

Inevitably you have to travel, whether by road, air or train, raisng your carbon footprint.  And having two homes means you are probably using more resources overall than you would if you just stayed put.

If you want a second home but these issues do concern you, sharing its ownership by joining a private syndicate really does does have major benefits over the alternatives.

So while it may be true that no form of second home ownership is 100% "eco-friendly", if that means using resources efficiently, supporting local communities, and minimising impact on the landscape, then buying with a small private group of co-owners is by far the best way to do it.

To find out why, here's the difference with individual ownership and  fractional or timeshare ownership.
