“I need a second home like I need a colonoscopy.”
Spent an hour on the phone with Wade Shealy, who is probably the most seasoned and knowledgeable man in the country when it comes to second home real estate, certainly the most honest. Wade is the founder of 3RD HOME, a web site for second home owners that expands second home ownership by creating a home swap of vetted owners and properties. It’s like belonging to your very own Exclusive Resorts. The ticket in: you must already be a second home owner — condo, home, ranch — and then you can exchange your home to stay at a THIRD home for — are you ready? $495 a week. That is not a typo. It costs you $495 to join 3RD HOME, and then $495 per week per stay at a home that matches the value, categorized as keys. All the homes and owners are scrutinized so you know you are not just getting a five star location, you are putting nice people in your property.
