A "time share" is when several people share ownership of a vacation property, either by owning a part of it (fee interest) or having a long-term agreement to use it (leasehold interest). Each person gets to use the property during specific times, making it a more affordable way to enjoy a vacation home.
Imagine a beach house that 4 friends decide to share. They each buy a fee interest or sign a long-term leasehold agreement for the house. They create a schedule, allowing each person to use the house for 3 months of the year. By sharing the costs and responsibilities, they all have an affordable vacation spot and know exactly when it's their turn to enjoy the house.
