Why Timeshare Owners Need Choices

Let’s dispel the notion that it is impossible to resell timeshare. In 2009, the websites for Sell My Timeshare NOW generated 61,743 offers to buy timeshare resales and 85,949 offers to rent timeshares. That’s a lot of activity in any market, but especially during a time when consumers are evaluating expenditures more carefully than ever.

Yet even with the outstanding global visibility of the Sell My Timeshare NOW websites, there is still no one-size-fits-all option when it comes to selling timeshare. We’ve always offered timeshare owners the option to sell timeshare, advertising it by-owner, on our well-positioned websites. (That means websites that show up in all the search results, no matter which timeshare or timeshare-related words you may type into your computer.)

However, not everyone is comfortable with or has the time to handle their timeshare sale themselves, connecting with prospective buyers, negotiating the contract, and contacting the timeshare resort. That’s why it is important for us to bring our timeshare broker services, (which we have offered for years) into a more prominent role in our discussions with owners.

Timeshare Resale: You Have Choices

If you choose to sell your timeshare by advertising it on the Sell My Timeshare NOW website as a by-owner resale you pay $599 in a one-time fee and your timeshare ad is marketed until it sells. If your timeshare sells via some other outlet first, we refund the money you paid to advertise it with us.

But if you want a broker managed timeshare sale, you can turn the entire process over to a licensed timeshare broker who is part of Timeshare Broker Services. You timeshare broker will take care of everything—start to finish. For this ‘turn-key’ service, you will pay nothing up front, and then either a 15 percent commission or $2,000 (whichever is greater) when the sale of the timeshare closes.

Yes, you really can resell timeshare and now, you have even more choices about how you do it.
