Why Should I Buy a Vacation Home with Kocomo and Not On My Own?


January 21, 2022

The dream of owning a vacation home abroad is a visceral one. Leaving your everyday worries and responsibilities behind in lieu of waking up in paradise. There are no sirens, no email notifications chiming. All you hear is the sound of the birds singing outside, the way the palms rustle together when they blow in the breeze. Instead of making a mad dash for the office with a to-go mug in hand, your mornings here are slow and calm. You take your coffee outside. You watch the sunrise over turquoise waves as they lap against the soft white sand. You take to the water for a refreshing start to your day. This is the allure of paradise. This is what it feels like to spend your days elsewhere, in your faraway Kocomo home away from home where your friends and family gather to make memories that will last a lifetime. 

Before Kocomo, it took a lot of behind-the-scenes work in order to fulfill this vision. Traditionally, if you bought a vacation home abroad on your own, you were in the driver’s seat of searching, purchasing, and sometimes building your home. That meant you needed to gather the necessary contacts to both maintain and ensure the protection of your foreign asset. Even after the tedious upstart was behind you, you were required to assume the role of house manager, which often meant you needed to learn new language skills and destination knowledge to maintain your home. Suddenly a part-time dream home became a full-time job.

At Kocomo, we make the dream of owning your vacation home a hassle-free reality. From start to finish, we ensure everything runs smoothly, eliminating the stress, worry, and upkeep that typically comes with owning a foreign asset. When you’re at your Kocomo home, you’re focused on enjoying life to the fullest. When it’s time to return to your year-round residence, all you have to do is catch a flight. Kocomo takes care of the rest. 

While this was once a dream only for the few, Kocomo makes it a feasible reality for even more people just like you with our co-ownership model. Not only are dream homes in Mexico’s most alluring destinations more affordable with our model, but we also make your buying experience turnkey, from beginning to end. And we continue to be your partner thereafter, even when you’re savoring your experience at your new home. 

Here, five perks of buying a home with us and not on your own. 

We Manage Your Home

When you buy a vacation home abroad, you will undoubtedly become the manager of your home. This usually requires the knowledge of a second language so you’re able to coordinate cleanings and oversee all of the necessary steps it takes to keep your home clean and safe. With Kocomo, we manage your home for you. We are your in-destination expert and partner every step of the way. We’re here with you far beyond your purchasing decision, as we help you coordinate your visits to your new home, and we also manage your home for you from start to finish. We take care of maintaining your home’s charm and quality, and we coordinate everything that your home could possibly need to function at its best. We make the entire process stress- and hassle-free. 

You Don’t Have to Worry About Maintenance

When you purchase a vacation home on your own, you assume all the responsibility of maintaining the home’s condition even when you’re not using it. That means you will need to coordinate pool cleanings, landscaping services, exterior repairs, and more. With Kocomo, we handle all of this for you. We already have every contact imaginable to maintain your home’s charm and allure for you to savor upon arrival. When you’re at your Kocomo home, your number one focus is on enjoying the moment. When you depart for your year-round residence, we handle the rest. 

We Rent Your Home For You

If you purchased a vacation home abroad on your own, you usually want to maximize your investment by renting out the property when you're not using it. This usually means you’re listing your home to strangers on a home-sharing platform and losing a portion of the profit every time. It also probably means you’re relying on an in-destination manager to deliver keys, coordinate arrival times, schedule cleanings pre- and post-stay, and more. With Kocomo, we rent your home for you during the days you don’t stay. If you’re not able to stay your full 6 weeks per calendar year, leave it to us to vet the perfect renters while you enjoy the profits.

Your Home is Safe Year-Round

More often than not, vacation homes are in remote, tropical destinations that are seasonal in nature. This means you’ll likely need to hire a live-in caretaker to assume responsibility for the home’s protection in the low season. For example, if you buy a home on the beach in Mexico, you’ll likely need to hire someone to stay at the home during early fall when hurricane season is in full swing. If a storm comes, a caretaker will assume the responsibility of ensuring your hurricane shutters are in place and that all steps have been taken to secure your home prior to the storm. They also will keep your home safe from any potential off-season break-ins. With Kocomo, we’re are your caretakers. We keep a watchful eye on your home year-round, rain or shine. Come the low or high season, we’re always ensuring that your home is safe, protected, and in perfect condition, for you to arrive and enjoy it to the fullest. 

What is a Fideicomiso?

When it comes to the traditional process of buying property in Mexico, foreigners have a few legal hoops to jump through before they can buy and own land.

Is a Kocomo co-ownership a Timeshare?

No. In a traditional timeshare, you purchase time at a property and not the actual property. Your timeshare purchase allows you to have a set amount of days—let's say a week—at a property every year. Usually, your time is pre-set.
