How To Sell Your Timeshare in 2012

Tampa, Florida – January 4, 2012: Getting personal finances in order is one of the most common New Years’ resolutions for Americans in 2012. If you’re among the thousands of Americans looking to save money by selling their timeshare this year, you have the potential to eliminate your payments and/or maintenance fees by selling on the resale market. However, without careful research, sellers are particularly vulnerable to timeshare scams.


Research Carefully to Avoid Scams

One of the best ways to ensure you’re working with a reputable timeshare reseller is to check their licensing and BBB Accreditation.  The Licensed Timeshare Resale Brokers Association (LTRBA) is a great place to start – LTRBA provides a trustworthy source of help for timeshare buyers and sellers. The “no upfront fee” policy for all LTRBA members ensures service and protects against fraud.


Beware of Upfront Fees

Upfront fees are one of the hallmarks of timeshare scams. Once a “reseller” has your money, there’s no real incentive to get your timeshare sold. Licensed timeshare brokers, on the other hand, never charge an upfront fee for their services. Instead, brokers work on a commission, meaning they’ll work hard to get your timeshare sold for as much as possible on the resale market.


Check Licensing for Timeshare Brokers

Protect yourself from timeshare scammers in 2012. Always check a timeshare broker’s licensing. For LTRBA brokers, be sure to check their actual website at: One of the newest timeshare resale scams involves unlicensed brokers using LTRBA logos and fraudulent addresses. That’s why it’s imperative you do your research on reputable sites.


Choose BBB Accredited Timeshare Resellers

While you’re at it, check out their BBB Accreditation. The BBB is a widely recognized forum for publically resolving customer complaints. The BBB subjects businesses to a “Code of Business Practices” that help it determine whether or not a business can gain accreditation. This helps ensure reputability and trustworthiness. Be wary of any timeshare reseller or broker without BBB Accreditation – it may signify a company with unsavory business practices, at best.

Careful research is the best way to protect yourself against increasingly clever timeshare resale scams. Make 2012 the start to your financial freedom; sell or buy timeshare safely and securely with licensed and BBB Accredited timeshare brokers.
