Dalima is a new way to own your second home at a fraction of the price and none of the hassle. We turn buying, owning and selling shares of a second home into an easy and fair experience, thanks to our proprietary technology and impeccable service at every step of the journey.
Once a client becomes co-owner of one of our properties, they can schedule their stay through our scheduling system and enjoy their vacation with nothing to worry about as all it's taken care of by our team: legwork prior to the purchase, staffing, cleaning, maintenance, repairs, concierge services and anything related to the management of the property. It's like owning a second home, but just made easier.
We enable multiple people to own a second home through our co-ownership model, allowing them to enjoy all the benefits of owning a home without the usual hassle that comes with it. We select unique properties in the Mediterranean with the right set of attributes, aggreagate a maximum of 8 co-owners, set up the legal entity and take care of the paperwork. Once the purchase is made, manage the property and any services needed by the co-owners during their stay, making sure they do not have to worry about nothing but to enjoy their time at home with their loved ones.
Not at all. There are three main reasons a Dalima differs from a timeshare.
Firstly, with a timeshare you have the right to use a property for certain time of the year. In contrast, with a Dalima you own a piece of the property - you are the actual owner of a home. This means you may benefit from the appreciation in the value of the real estate asset.
Secondly, when you want to sell a timeshare you must attempt to sell it back to the operator who sold it to you, at a price usually predefined at the moment of the purchase. With Dalima, whenever you may want to sell out your share, you can easily do so through our marketplace, where we connect you with hundreds of real estate agents who will market your share, or you can sell it directly to a potential buyer out of Dalima. You decide both price and buyer at all times.
And lastly, timeshare properties normally are hotel rooms or condominiums in resorts while Dalima properties are unique homes exclusively selected by our team based on the right set of attributes, their top location and their beautiful design, which make them real estate assets with potential for an appretaition in value.
It's very simple. Our co-ownership model allows multiple people to own fractions of a second home. This model has traditionally been used on a DIY format - we are reinvenitng the co-ownership experience by selecting the right properties, creating the legal entity, taking care of the legwork and the property management services, and providing 24/7 support to each co-owner.
By simplifying the experience, we allow co-owners to focus on enjoying their home without the headache that usually comes with owning a second residence.
Every home is divided into eight shares, and each co-owner can buy from one eight to half of the property. Each eighth gives the right to enjoy the property 45 days a year, so in case one co-owner decides to purchase two co-ownership stakes, they will be able to enjoy their home approximately three months a year.
As part of our principles, we provide full transparency on what are the costs and how we are able to operate the business. We only charge two fees:
- A one-time service fee of 6% of the share's value once the co-owners purchase the home. This includes home selection, buyer aggregation, legal entity formation, home upgrades management and closing.
- monthly fee to cover the costs associated to managing the property. This monthly fee goes from 29€ to 99€, depending on the type of property and location, and is defined when the home is purchased.
- Rental commission: 10% of the rental price every time a co-owner requests Dalima to rent out part of their time.
- Additiional services commission: 10% of the additional service price every time a co-owner requests Dalima one of the additional services available in our services portfolio.
Our portfolio combines homes purchased by Dalima and available through our marketplace, as well as homes curated by our team and available for purchase but not owned by us yet, therefore also available in the real estate market. In this latter case, we purchase the home once several co-owners have confirmed their interest in that particular property.
