"We would never own a second home on our own again and go through all the pain if we knew what we knew now!" - Katy, Matt, August...
It can be especially time-consuming and a minefield to navigate. There also tends to be a lot of questions that need to be answered...
After acquiring the property and once the renovations are done, it's about figuring out how to design and furnish it... After all, it's your home so it should feel cosy, comfortable and to your style. Typically, by the time many reach this point, many are so overwhelmed in their journey, they are keen to just "get it done", focusing on function rather than the little details that can transform a freshly painted property into their dream holiday home.
Exhausted by the unexpected pitfalls that many have had to overcome, many haven't even had a chance to enjoy their new holiday homes before being greeted with more joys of home ownership. That is, the ongoing upkeep and fixing which comes with any house that tends to always take up a lot of time and reduces the time enjoyed whilst on holidays...
...and did we mention the garden and the pool? Who is going to deal with that? You, probably.
Not only have we experienced and witnessed this first hand, but we also hear these challenges and feedback time and time again from families who go on the homeownership journey for their dream home. Only to realise... that they would never do it again if they knew what they know now. A very common revelation echoed by many of our August Collection families.
Holiday home ownership should be easy. Tackling all of the above is why August exists and why we believe it's a model that combines the best of true homeownership by eliminating all the pain points typically associated with ownership on your own.
