Timeshares for Sale by Broker
Are you curious about timeshares? Read on to learn about how these vacation properties work, and why you should consider a timeshare resale
Do you have a favorite vacation destination you’d like to return to year after year? Are you the adventurous type- always seeking out exciting new locales? Perhaps you’ve got a little of both in you. Whatever your preference; if you’re looking for a flexible, affordable way to make travel a regular part of your lifestyle, consider timeshare ownership.
What is a Timeshare?
A timeshare is a vacation ownership property that is shared between multiple families. Many vacationers aren’t able to afford a second vacation home in their favorite travel destination, but are looking for an affordable long-term lodging solution. A timeshare allows individuals to own and use a luxurious vacation property every year or every other year.
How do Timeshares Work?
In the United States, a resort or developer will generally sell timeshare in one-week increments. Owners can choose to purchase as many weeks per year as they’d like. Timeshares’ flexibility also allows for biennial or even triennial usage if annual vacations aren’t practical with owners’ current lifestyle.
In recent years many vacation clubs (like those offered by Hilton and Marriott) began operating within a point-system, affording guests the extra flexibility to break-up their timeshare week – staying for perhaps one or two nights a number of times a year; and making it possible for owners to trade their time for time at other in-network resorts.
How is Timeshare Lodging Different from Hotel Accommodations?
The average hotel room is just 300-400 square feet, while the average timeshare is a spacious 1200-1400. Generally hotels offer guests a room with a bed and a small bathroom. Timeshares, on the other hand, are like condos. They offer private bedrooms, large common areas, a kitchen, a laundry room, and usually a balcony (or two).
Timeshares also offer many resort amenities that hotels do not, like: private beach access, golf courses, swimming-pools, health clubs, tennis and racquetball courts, picnic grilling areas, kids’ activities, and much more.
Are Timeshares Affordable?
Because they are divided among multiple owners, timeshares afford owners the unparalleled luxury of resort ownership, for about the same amount they might pay to rent a quality hotel room for a week’s time.
In that sense, timeshares are already a great vacation accommodation option. However, when you buy timeshare directly from the resort, you’re subject to their often exorbitant marketing fees and profit margin, meaning you could end up paying thousands more than necessary to secure your annual or biennial vacation.
Buying timeshare resale (from a previous owner, rather than directly from the resort) can save you thousands; sometimes up to 70% off resort developer prices. Timeshare resales allow you to secure a lifetime of vacations for a fraction of the cost of renting a hotel room or buying vacation property directly from the resort.
I Like to Travel. Will I be Limited?
If anything, timeshares open up more travel possibilities. Timeshares’ flexibility extends beyond the benefits of annual usage and affordability. In fact, timeshares are some of the most flexible forms of vacation accommodation available.
When you buy timeshare that is affiliated with an exchange company like RCI or Interval International, you can use your timeshare to travel to more than 5,000 resorts all over the world. Resort Condominiums International (RCI) is the largest and most expansive exchange club, therefore offering the most options in worldwide travel.
What if I Can’t Use My Time?
If, for whatever reason, you aren’t going to be able to use your vacation property one year, you’ll still be responsible for paying the maintenance fees. While these fees are nominal in comparison to what you might spend for weeklong accommodation in a hotel of similar quality, nobody wants to be stuck paying for something they can’t use.
Luckily, with the help of knowledgeable brokers like us, timeshare owners can always rent their timeshare to vacationers who want to secure well-appointed lodgings for a fraction of the cost of other methods.
And, with some packages, you can “bank” your week or trade it in for points, which will allow you to put them aside for usage another year.
Where Can I Buy Timeshare?
You have a couple of options when it comes to buying timeshare. You can choose to purchase directly from the resort, which works well if expense isn’t a major concern. For most timeshare buyers though, the online resale market is the best resource for finding inexpensive timeshares for sale. With so many timeshare resellers to choose from, you’d be best served choosing a reputable name you can trust.
