Are you one of those individuals who wants to own part of a vacation home but not the entire unit. If so, Plum might be the solution you are seeking.
The Durham-headquartered start-up that seeks to simplify the process of buying a second home for groups of people is raising a pre-seed round of $1.5 million in funding, and the round will include an investment from the Triangle Tweener Fund.
