Like many vacationers in Europe, we fell in love with the lifestyle in Europe and longed to really live there for part of each year. But how?
It seemed impractical and expensive to own and maintain a home we might use for a month or two each year. Instead, in 1998 we became one of the first to use an American limited liability company to buy a property in France which offered a simple vehicle for other like-minded people to join us in ownership of that farmhouse in France.
International Property Shares offers a unique opportunity to purchase a French or Italian property without a large outlay of capital. As an exclusive member (shareholder) of one of our LLC’s, you literally own a percentage share of the LLC (Limited Liability Company) which owns and manages the property.
