We manage the home, and you own it. It's the modern way to buy and own a second home.
Find your second home with Pacaso
Explore our collection of stunning single-family homes in top second home destinations. We'll help you find the perfect fit, and you decide how many shares you'd like to own.
We create a property LLC for each home, find and vet co-owners, and handle all the sales details. At closing, the co-owners enjoy 100% ownership of the home – Pacaso does not retain any shares.
We take care of furnishings, repairs, utilities and property management – you just show up and relax. Scheduling is easy and equitable with our app and SmartStay™ technology.

Why second home owners love their Pacasos
- NkemVentura County, CA, USA
“All the things that Pacaso does are the things that I don’t want to do. I don't want to worry about upkeep — I want to spend time with my sons, my daughters, my wife.”
- KevinNewport Beach, CA, USA
“My ideas about what I wanted and what I could actually afford were on two different levels. Co-ownership brought properties that I thought were out of reach into grasp.”
- SherayCupertino, CA, USA
“I like the owners-only policy. The only people in my home are like-minded owners who have pride of ownership, and their guests. That feels good.”
- GeorgeBay Area, CA, USA
“We're not retired or close to it, so I'm not going to be occupying a second home more than 15% tops. It's a perfect product for someone like me.”
- WillRedwood City, CA, USA
“From the start to today, working with Pacaso at all levels, everyone has been fantastic.”
- GloriaFoster City, CA, USA
“This is the perfect model. I can own a share of the property and not worry about maintenance.”
Frequently asked questions
Do I really have ownership in the home?
Yes. Owning a Pacaso is true real estate ownership. You purchase a share in a property-specific LLC. The home is fully managed and designed specifically for co-ownership.
How do I schedule time to use the home?
You book time using the Pacaso app, powered by our SmartStay™ scheduling system. It’s easy to use and equitable for owners, based on the number of shares you own. The system supports two types of stays: general and short-notice. General stays are scheduled 8 days to 24 months in advance, and each owner has access to a general stay that falls on a special date (e.g., federal holidays and popular local events). Short-notice stays are booked 2 to 30 days in advance of arrival. (Note: For homes with unsold shares, the short-notice booking window is 2-7 days in advance of arrival.) See additional scheduling FAQs for more details.
What if I want to sell my ownership in the home?
You can sell at any time after your first 12 months of ownership, at a price of your choosing. We have an active network of interested buyers, and the home will also be listed on Pacaso and promoted across our marketing channels.
What down payment is required to purchase a share of a second home?
Buyers can finance up to 70% of their purchase. A minimum down payment of 30% is required. We offer competitive rates for all financing levels, with preferred rates for buyers paying 30-50% down.
Can I finance my second home purchase?
Yes. We have integrated financing available to offer our buyers. You also are welcome to use other sources of capital such as home equity financing or cash.
How are prospective owners evaluated?
We vet all owners, who agree to a common-sense owner code of conduct. The home will be reserved for the exclusive use of owners and their guests.
