We’ll Sweat the Upkeep—So You Don’t Have to
Ember is a vacation home experience company. We help buyers find their dream vacation home through co-ownership. Then we manage all the details so it’s as stress-free as possible. We purchase the home, design and furnish it, install landscaping, and then manage the property moving forward.
You may resell your ownership interest at any time once all eight shares of the home have been sold or it's been twelve months since your purchase. You choose the resale price. Ember acts as your selling agent and ensures your ownership interest is listed and marketed.
There are several advantages to selling through Ember. We’ve simplified the process to where owners can resell their share in as little as 24 hours. You won’t have to pay any closing costs like title fees, an appraisal fee, or a transfer fee. When your share sells, you’ll pay a three percent (3%) commission to the buyer’s agent and a three percent (3%) commission to the listing agent (Ember).
Ember vacation homes appreciate in value just like other homes on the market. After paying the standard agent commissions, you’ll capture any appreciation in the home.
Co-ownership means you and up to seven other co-owners share the legal ownership of a vacation home property. Each of you enjoys exclusive use of the home during scheduled stays throughout the year. A one-eighth share gives you 44+ nights each year in the home.
Yes. You and your co-owners own 100 percent of the property through a property-specific LLC. Your ownership interest can be sold, willed, and placed in a buyer’s personal name, trust, or corporation.
No. Ember helps you buy, own, and sell beautiful second homes in your favorite vacation destinations. Most timeshares, in contrast, provide “usage rights” to use the property only, with no rights of ownership. Ember homes are owned by as few as two and not more than eight owners, providing an exclusive ownership experience in contrast to most timeshares that have up to 52 people using the property annually.
Scheduling with Ember is flexible and easy too. Just use the Ember App to schedule your stays and enjoy your vacation home because you own it. As an owner, you capture all value appreciation should you decide to sell your share in the future. Being a vacation home owner has never been easier.
There are two types of Ember vacation homes:
Ember Limited: Properties exclusively reserved for owners and their guests.
Ember Flex: Properties where owners can choose to use their time between personal use and renting it out.
Yes. Ember homes are professionally designed and fully furnished by our interior design team. When you walk through the door, the home is turn-key ready. So you can start enjoying your vacation immediately. The home also features a complete audio-visual setup, fresh linens, and a stocked kitchen with enough dishes and cookware to host Thanksgiving dinner.
Each Ember home has a dedicated property concierge that manages all the details of routine maintenance on the home. This includes landscaping, gutter cleaning, and pool maintenance just to name a few. Ember also arranges any repairs, through locally hired professionals.
