Get Paid To Go On Vacation

By Matthew Milner, on Wednesday, June 25, 2014

I’m writing this from a white-washed island in Greece called Folegandros.

Yes, it’s summertime…

And I’m honoring the age-old investor tradition of “Sell in May, go away.”

Typically, I can’t get paid to travel like this…

But thanks to a new crowdfunding opportunity, now I can.

And so can you.


12% In the Sun

iBankers Direct, one of the platforms that we cover here at Crowdability, just announced a new investment opportunity.

An American-owned real estate company called Immobiliare Meneghina is offering an opportunity to invest in an historic lakefront villa on Lake Como, Italy.

This is what it looks like:

The property just underwent a 4-year renovation.

To pay off the debt, they’re now offering what they call “Luxury Travel Notes.”

These notes pay a 12% annual return.

But there’s a twist…

Get Paid for a Little Rilassamento

Of the 12% yield, 6% is paid in cash…

And 6% is in the form of a travel credit at the Lake Como resort.

And what a resort it is!

The 20,000 square foot estate was built in 1772. It’s one of only 7 villas with direct access to Lake Como, and it’s the only one that boasts a lakefront swimming pool.

Hmm, maybe I’d better hop over there to do some “due diligence” before I head back to New York City.

All I Got Was This Great Vacation – and Some Income

Seems like a great way to take a little vacation…

And get paid 12% to do it!

Now that’s what I call un buon affare.

(For the record, we have no relationship with iBankers Direct or Immobiliare Meneghina – although, frankly, we wouldn’t mind a long relationship with that villa!)

Happy Investing!

Best Regards,
