FL Attorney General Steps Up Efforts to Fight Timeshare Scams
Thursday, March 13, 2008
Last week, Florida’s Attorney General, Bill McCollum increased his focus on consumer education specifically targeting scams in timeshare sales.
It makes sense that McCollum would have a particular interest in timeshare issues since more timeshare resorts are located in Orlando than in any other city, and more timeshare resorts located in the state of Florida than any other US location. McCollum’s office recommends that people who want to sell timeshare use either, a licensed real estate broker or they sell by owner — and both are excellent suggestions.
Avoid Timeshare Scams: Sell Timeshare Through a Timeshare Broker
A licensed real estate broker, like Sell My Timeshare NOW’s sister company, Timeshare Hot Deal, is an excellent choice for some people who are ready to sell timeshare. A timeshare broker gives you the benefit of a commission-motivated sales professional and the plus of paying no fees until your timeshare unit or timeshare weeks actually sell.
Avoid Timeshare Scams: Sell Timeshare By Owner
Selling timeshare by-owner is also a good option. By owner selling lets you control every detail of your timeshare resale; and it is the way many of the timeshare sellers at Sell My Timeshare NOW handle their timeshare resales transaction. Sell My Timeshare NOW advertises and markets available timeshare real estate, attracting over 1.7 million visitors per month to our website. In 2007, more than $274 million in offers to buy timeshare or rent timeshare were made on properties in our inventory.
But Attorney General Bill McCollum’s message for more consumer education is important! Before you buy, rent, or sell timeshare, do your research to ensure that whomever you hire to help you is reputable and has a proven track record in the timeshare resales industry.
