WHAT WE DO?
Lemonjuice Capital invests in select legacy resorts enabling them to achieve their highest and best use.
The time has come for a growing number of timeshare HOAs to address the sustainability of their properties. The status-quo and legacy practices of managing and operating older timeshare properties might not work in the long-term. Ignoring these realities and failing to act can force a resort into insolvency, possible bankruptcy, and even worse, continuing on the life-support method of charging excessive maintenance fees. Some timeshare resorts are heading toward failure or have even ceased operations. The resulting chaos can be devastating for owners. Instead of owning valuable property, they would end up with a personal liability. With investment and assistance from Lemonjuice Capital, owners can exercise win-win choices that include selling their intervals for real money or staying in sustainable resort sharing arrangements.
- Aging owners
- Non-revenue generating inventory
- Increasing delinquencies
- Sunset provisions
- A need for funding to sustain operations and properly maintain the property
- Wind-down operations and convert to wholly-owned condominiums or to a hotel.
- Consider moving toward a hybrid solution of being part hotel, part condominium and/or part timeshare.
- Explore options for keeping a portion of the property operating as a timeshare, vacation club or travel club.
How we do it
We’ll review your needs, prepare a plan, and provide funding to implement long term solutions.
A Board of Directors must be proactive. When delinquencies and defaults increase, the reserves and operating funds for a resort decrease. Good management can handle small adjustments but when those situations become prolonged, the ability of a resort to sustain operations comes into question. The sooner the Board gets a full picture of the trends, the sooner the resort will be able to plan a course of action and implement the necessary changes for the best interest of their owners.
Your resort has unique circumstances and requires custom solutions.
Taking a go-it-alone approach entails significant risks and can cost the resort precious time and money. Professional and objective expertise to assess the situation will avoid costly wheel-spinning.
We know how critical it is to keep owners informed and engaged. We understand that cost-containment is critical. We have developed systems and procedures for gaining clear title, securing title insurance on the property with complex ownership, and working through the legal requirements to assure compliance with your resort’s governing documents and state statutes.
Often overlooked is the underlying value of the real estate of each resort.
Our approach is to invest in the property, and the transformation of the resort. We invest to realize the maximum return on the underlying value of the real estate for the benefit of all legitimate stakeholders.
We invest the necessary capital. There is no requirement for outside debt financing.
Often, it takes substantial capital to implement the right solution. Lemonjuice Capital will take on the financial burden by investing into restructuring and repositioning your resort’s assets. There are no surprises or hidden agenda. Details of the arrangement are spelled out in advance for review and approval by the Board and its local counsel. Of utmost importance is protecting the interests of the dues-paying owners.
We work on repositioning resorts, not individual deeds, and here is what individual owners say:
Thank you for taking the bull by the horns.
My wife and I were pleasantly shocked when we received our check.
If it weren’t for you, we would have had to give our unit away for nothing.
