Nothing is better than having a vacation with your family and your loved ones; however, going in a vacation without thinking of financial disruptions is way way better! A lot can agree with that for sure! A lot of us have booked and stayed in high price villas, hotels, resorts and condominiums during our work breaks with our families and I am sure in some point, many of us ended up thinking of the total expenses we had. Later on, we planned and looked for a way to spend wisely the next time, and yes many of us believed that buying a timeshare for multiple weeks or less can make it work.
Yeah, it did actually become much cheaper than spending twice as much. We stayed in a beautiful resort that we, in some point, owned. Nevertheless, today, timeshare ownership is starting to wither because of high price maintenance fees. In fact, we have come to a point right now that we need to sell our timeshare a.s.a.p so as to avoid increasing fees. Our goal to save before seems to become another way to spend more.
I have asked a lot of people about how to sell my timeshare and they have given different answers that I found reliable but mostly a bunch of junk. I went to eHow.com and checked out some tips over there and I simply found the most straightforward solution and I quoted them below.
The first part is to sell your timeshare through a company.
1. Call up your timeshare corporation and inform them that you wish to sell your timeshare. Demand to speak with the lead or senior sales agent. This way you guarantee they are not just following protocol. If you can, go in person.
2. Many corporations attempt to use leverage marketing against time share re-sellers. They will make the opposite arguments about the value of timeshare investment when you attempt to sell it as when you purchased it. This will include supply and demand, devaluation, recessions, etc.
3. You are the sales person. Have a pitch, take control and get what you want.
4. During your sales pitch, cite very specific examples of why you are selling. If it was poor service, run down rooms or whatever, it is in your best interest to tell them about their problems. Because many timeshares paint a better picture than reality, it is your job to let them know you feel cheated, robbed and lied to.
5. Do NOT settle on the first price they quote you. They will continue to try to sell you on a low-ball price. When you bought the time share, they sold it to you with a buyout price buffer zone, so that even if you sell it back at the real value, they still profit.
The second part is to sell the your timeshare through a dealer.
1. Conduct a cost benefit analysis of the fees and commissions taken by a timeshare dealer. Often, the difference is less than a thousand dollars, and involves nearly a year of listings.
2. Keep in mind it is in their interest to get a lower price for your timeshare. They want to sell it for a profit just like the resort or corporation did
3. Select a reputable timeshare dealer. Many organizations will charge for listings but do very little work to sell your timeshare. Many potential sellers simply wait and wait in the vain hope of the agency selling their timeshare.
4. The agency sale will give you an estimated selling price, and as time goes on, this price will drop. Just because you’ve selected a timeshare dealer does not mean you are stuck with them. It’s your investment–protect it.
