Sell Timeshare for No Upfront Fee
Sell Timeshare with a Licensed Broker
First of all, it is recommended by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) to use only licensed real estate brokers if you plan to do more than just advertise your timeshare for sale. Brokers are licensed and regulated, and can be easily verified by state boards and other real estate services.
A timeshare broker can provide not only a complete advertising program, but also help assist with buyers, negotiate pricing, write sales contracts and provide closing services. At Timeshare Broker Sales we do not charge any advance fees for these services, relying only on commission paid at time of closing of the timeshare sale.
When selling timeshare, it’s most important to go with a name you can trust. Timeshare Broker Sales is a licensed REALTOR® and a BBB Accredited Business. We are timeshare resale specialists for Hilton Grand Vacations Club worldwide.
Truths about Selling Timeshare
It’s important to manage your expectations. Don’t expect to receive the same amount that you originally paid for your timeshare. Many factors influence the resale price including season, location, unit size and age of the unit or resort. In particular, if you have owned your timeshare interest for less than five years or if its resort location is not ideal, the resale price will reflect this. A Florida timeshare, for example, will appeal to more buyers than a Belize vacation property. Remember, a timeshare should be considered a vacation-use product, rather than a traditional real estate investment, although it may include a small interest in real estate.
Timeshare Broker Sales is expert at providing true market value of your timeshare based on experience of our professional timeshare staff and available data.
Be cautious of what timeshare resale advertising sites claim your timeshare is worth. They are very restricted as to what they can say regarding prices because they are not licensed. Pricing your timeshare incorrectly means you won’t attract buyers and you’re your timeshare may go unsold.
Additionally, beware of any company who asks for an upfront fee to list your timeshare for sale. When you pay upfront to advertize with a company, they’ve already got your money – what’s their incentive to sell timeshare quickly and efficiently? Remember, these companies are trying to sell you an ad, not sell your timeshare.
No Upfront Fees and Hands-On Brokerage
On the other hand, timeshare brokers and agents don’t get paid until the timeshare is sold, so we have an obvious incentive to price it right and find you a buyer! Timeshare resales are a price driven market because every unit competing with your timeshare is the same.
Our timeshare sales professionals will provide you with a range of prices for recent timeshare sales based on the fair market value of your vacation property. If you’re in a hurry to sell your timeshare, your listing price should be at the low end of the range. If there is no urgency, try the high end. We present all offers, and like traditional real estate, you control the sale by accepting the offer, rejecting it or countering it. You are in charge!

Finally, if you’re a timeshare owner considering selling but not quite ready to part with your vacation property, consider renting your timeshare. With rentals, you can rent your time at the resort out for cash.
If you plan far enough in advance, you may even be able to make a small profit off your timeshare rental. If not, you can still generally cover your maintenance fees while providing a vacationer who may not be able to otherwise afford it a luxurious vacation.
Renting timeshare is also a great way to experience timeshare brokerage first-hand, in case you should decide to sell in the future.Whether selling, renting our buying vacation property, Timeshare Broker Sales is your one-stop shop for all your timesharing needs.
