How does it work?
As an owner in the Cape Codder Residence Club, you will own a fractional interest in a specific residence in the Club. You will receive a deed to your fractional interest, similar to the deed that you may hold to your primary residence or vacation home. There is no cross liability between you and the other owners, and you are free to sell, will, or gift your fractional interest as you choose.
The Cape Codder Residence Club is currently the only fractional ownership program offered on the Cape. However, similar programs are located in resort locations throughout the United States and in many foreign countries.
