Immediate Ownership

Make memories while you’re there, and money while you’re not.

Summer takes the headache out of owning a vacation home by taking care of design & furnishing, property care, and revenue management to maximize your investment.

Get started

Step 1

Find your happy place

Let Summer take you through our portfolio of rental-ready homes, or let us help you find the one on the market that meets your criteria.  We also welcome you to send over any home listings that have already caught your eye!  

We thoroughly evaluate each home to measure its short-term rental potential to ensure that our members are fully-informed on their investment.

Step 2

Become a member

Once your offer is accepted, your due diligence period begins with Summer taking care of closing and home inspection. Post-inspection, you’ll make it official with Summer by signing the rental agreement.

Step 3

Design and construction begins

You’ll get a tailored presentation of our vision for your home’s design - including customized mood-boards and furniture/decor selection - based on information gathered from your initial conversions with the Design & Installation team.  

Summer will oversee construction, furniture delivery, and the setup of all essentials and finishing touches.
