The number one question we hear is “How can I sell my timeshare?!” As previous timeshare owners ourselves, we understand the need and the desire to sell a timeshare. After all, we paid good money for these properties and the timeshare salesman told us they would go up in value, right? He said I could always sell my timeshare!? He also said I could sell my timeshare back to the Resort, right? He seemed like such a nice boy and a timeshare salesman would never lie.
The difficult to accept fact is selling a timeshare in the current market is next to impossible.
The fact is that, due to no fault of yours or ours, timeshare companies have undercut the value of their own product by overselling and by opening up their properties to the general public (non-owner) rental market. This has made getting where you want to go when you want to be there very difficult. This has also virtually eliminated a need to own a timeshare to enjoy the benefits of ownership. Together, this has all but made selling a timeshare nearly impossible.
Please do NOT blame yourself!
When we were proudly buying these timeshare properties in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, they made perfect sense. The maintenance fees were $200-$300 a year and taking a family to a nice vacation resort would have cost three or four times that amount back then. This would assure our families of a nice vacation every year and it would be affordable on our budgets. No one could have foreseen the advent of the internet and the effect it would have on vacation travel and the increasing cost and difficulty in simply using a Timeshare. Now we can go to these or equally as nice locations at about the same cost without being a timeshare owner. It never occurred to us back then that we would want to sell my Timeshare – it worked well, the family loved it and we will just give it to the kids. Now decades later it doesn’t work well, the kids travel differently or can’t afford it and you have found out there is no way to sell Timeshare.
If you are still asking the question, “How do I sell my Timeshare NOW?” We have a few simple words of advice: never pay anyone upfront fees to “list” or “sell” a timeshare.
These unscrupulous companies will normally ask for a few hundred dollars sent by wire, money order, or check to “list” your timeshare. They will promise that they have a herd of anxious buyers from around the globe just hoping to buy a timeshare just like yours. They will make too good to be true promises of thousands of dollars in profits just awaiting your payment to them. They will most likely “list” your timeshare on some obscure website no one can find and you will hear nothing more from them and will not be able to get your money back. It is a waste of time and money. If you have been through the timeshare resell wars and are tired of taking part in this losing cause, only to be stuck with another year of ever-increasing resort fees, then it is time to stop banging your head against the wall and contact timeshare ninjas for immediate timeshare relief. “Without my timeshare I am able to enjoy my life again”
