How to Choose the Best Timeshare

If you love to go on vacation and to spend a little bit of time getting away from all of the worries and stress that you would normally find in your daily life, then you are going to want to make sure that you choose the right vacation destination. One of the options that quite a few people today are considering is the timeshare. While the timeshares might have had a bad reputation in some eyes, it really does depend on a number of things, including the quality of the property, the price, and the location. Today, you will be able to find some great options for your shared property. Here are some tips on how you can do it.

Understanding the Timeshare

First, you have to understand what you are going to get when it comes to the timeshare at the most basic level. You are buying a portion of the property. The money you spend on the property and the yearly maintenance fees will give you access to that property during certain times of the year. It is most common for people to buy their timeshares in week long chunks. They may choose to buy two or more weeks if they are vacationing longer.


The concept of timesharing has been around since the 1960’s as an innovative alternative to paying for hotel accommodations while on vacation. Today, timesharing comes in many forms, from vacation clubs to fractional ownership. Yet, never before had we seen the concept of timeshare rentals by the hour. Until now.

What was once an empty lot at 145 Ludlow Street in Manhattan is now home to the world's first "Timeshare Backyard." For $100 an hour (with a two hour minimum), New Yorkers who don’t want to make the trip out to Brooklyn, the Bronx or Queens can enjoy a private, fenced-in backyard fully equipped for lounging, grilling or even hula-hooping.
