Smart Vacationers Go Timeshare, Especially When They Are Watching Their Spending

If you have boxes of money piled up under your bed, then you probably shouldn’t read this timeshare blog. But if you are like most people, the only things under your bed are dust bunnies and stray socks.

For most people, the intensity of the need to take a vacation is matched only by concerns for how to pay for that vacation. You’ve read it here before: Men who don’t vacation regularly are 32 percent more likely to die of heart attacks; women are 50 percent more likely (source:

Life is hectic and families are torn in many directions. Sharing time while on vacation and away from work, school, and everyone’s busy schedules is critical. So let’s look at a few of the reasons smart vacationers see timeshare resales as a way to enjoy those much needed, much wanted vacations, without breaking the bank.

  1. For families, timeshare accommodations are almost always more spacious than hotel or motel rooms. Your whole family doesn’t live in one room at home, why would you do so on vacation? Most timeshares have separate kitchens with dining areas, living areas, and one, two, or three bedrooms and baths.
  2. You can share the cost. Because timeshares are designed to sleep a larger number of people, you and another family may decide to split the cost of the timeshare resale or rental. For example, many two-bedroom timeshares actually sleep eight people. Imagine how big the savings become when you share the cost.
  3. Amenities galore. Sometimes the fun of vacation is going and doing. Other times it is kicking back and doing as little as possible. Many timeshare resorts offer a wide range of onsite activities and amenities designed to interest vacationers of all ages. When you timeshare, you can have fun without ever leaving the property, but if you prefer to relax by the pool and count clouds, go for it!
  4. Dine out when you want to; eat in when it fits your plan or your budget better. Kitchens and dining areas in timeshares make this easy. With timeshare, you vacation food budget doesn’t have to be any higher than your weekly grocery bill at home.
  5. Timeshare resales and timeshare rentals are right priced. When you take advantage of timeshare on the secondary market, you let someone else absorb the frontend depreciation. You pay the competitive market price for your vacation accommodations whether it’s a timeshare resale or a timeshare rental. And with timeshare resales, you are locking in a lifetime of vacations at today’s price.
  6. Great rates on financing, now available. Until Sell My Timeshare NOW partnered with Prosper to bring timeshare resale financing to the marketplace, opportunities to finance your timeshare were limited. Now you can apply for timeshare resale financing as easily as you apply online for a credit card. With rates averaging 7.4 percent (lower for shorter terms), you can finance up to $20,000 to buy a timeshare resale that you and your family can enjoy for a lifetime.

When smart consumers look at the dollars and sense of whether to pay hotel rates or go timeshare, the decision is easy. This is the year to buy timeshare resales and start vacationing smart!
