Buying an apartment in Paris - Fractional Ownership

Jump to last reply

Like many people on this board, I've always dreamed of owning a home in Paris. I'm curious, has anyone done this or have you considered it? To me the idea sounds very similar to owning a timeshare where you purchase 1/2, 1/4 to 1/12 ownershop. Cost wise, this *sounds* very appealing but, I'm wondering investment wise if it's a good idea? Everyone here in the USA seems to end up unloading their timeshares at a loss. I honestly don't know anyone who purchased a timeshare who would do it again! On the other hand, you could rent an apartment on a monthly basis for A LOT less than what you'd pay to own. The issue is long term, I would assume that real estate values in Paris are on the rise so perhaps it would be a good investment in the long run? Just dreaming at work and weighing my options!
