Research by both Ragatz Associates and Price Waterhouse Coopers shows that the main factor that people consider when they buy into a private residence club or luxury fractional home is the location. The new directory allows prospective members of these clubs to search by destination to find the home and club that's right for them.

Destination clubs offer their members a portfolio of luxury homes around the world together with full travel services and on site concierges. Each of the clubs has multi million dollar residences in a variety of locations, with the directory you can now see which clubs have homes in your favorite destination.
