Step 2:

Decide how to Summer 

Dip your toes (try it)

Summer buys the home for you. You make a fully refundable, interest-free deposit (equal to 10% of the home price). Now, you're a Summer member and start paying a monthly subscription that goes toward your purchase if you decide to buy.

At any point over three years, if you’re smitten with your home, 100% of your initial and 50% of your subscription payments go toward the purchase. If not, after three years, get your initial payment back and walk away.

Dive in headfirst (buy it)

If you know you’ve found the one, Summer can help you own it today. You buy the home directly while Summer handles all the details and provides guaranteed income to offset the costs of ownership by renting the property on a short-term basis.

Step 4:

Gain access to every Summer home

Being a Summer member means unlocking access to every other Summer home, from a mountain retreat to a beachside bungalow. Stay wherever, whenever you want. Summer is your oyster.

All the upside of ownership at a fraction of the cost.

If you choose to try your home,

your initial payment and 50% of your monthly subscription payments are applied to the home purchase. This means you're able to build ownership much more quickly than with a traditional mortgage.

If you’re ready to buy today,

your lease from Summer guarantees you income to offset your expenses. Since you own the home, you also benefit from the equity and tax benefits of homeownership. The income Summer guarantees is dependent on market rates and how often you plan to use the home.
