Per Visit Florida research, Florida experienced a record number of visitors for nine consecutive years (2011 – 2019). In 2019 Florida saw 131.4 million travelers more than half of which, 75 million, visited Orlando. The Orlando market will continue to be the crown jewel for tourism in the state of Florida due to their theme parks (Disney World, Universal Studios, Sea World, and more), golf courses, and conference facilities. The Vacation Rental and Vacation Club market has significant pent-up demand as the world opens up after the pandemic. 2022 and 2023 in Reunion Resort where these units are located are expected to have near 100% to cover this pent-up vacation demand. The market for a product that provides both, a lifestyle vacation annual stay, and a fixed and guaranteed, prepaid quarterly income stream to members is very large, and untapped.
Our strategy lies in the creation of the first ever Vacation Residence Club that pays its members, instead the members paying in every month. A true game changer in the Vacation investment arena. https://resclubs.com/membership-program-presentation/
We achieve this program through our patented process of deploying both a Vacation club and VRP on the same home.
This innovative approach is so well accepted and vetted, the ResClubs memberships are now the first and only SEC regulated "Vacation Security" sold to accredited investors by Licensed Securities Professionals. ResClubs has also acquired the largest residential real estate owner in the UK, Alfie Best https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfie_Best, as their capital partner. Mr. Best so strongly endorses the product that he has purchased 19% of the company.
ResClubs takes a data driven analytical approach to purchasing all properties. Each location is reviewed internally as well as with one of our third-party international property management partners to ensure viability of each property as a cash flowing asset.
Each property is purchased with never more than 70% debt. There is never more than 30% raised by member investors. Debt pay down begins immediately the first month after purchase.
Each membership provides a guaranteed, prepaid quarterly cash return direct to the Investor/Member’s bank account for up to 30 years, from only a one-time investment. The company maintains a 2 years reserve based on annual owed member payments at all times.
In addition to this guaranteed quarterly payment to investor/Members, they receive free usage of the Vacation homes for their family to enjoy, every year for up to 30 years. This Vacation time is also sellable by the Member/Investor and can be exchanged for hundreds of other amazing locations.
The impact is that there is no shortage of Investor/Members for the ResClubs product.
The ResClubs brand is experiencing continual growth in other verticals as well which will allow for potential synergies and additional revenue streams. Currently, ResClubs has moved into the international resort development with the PGA of America Resort Costa Rica due to the international development experience of its ownership.
