Concerned about the strength of the Orlando timeshare market? Be sure to read this.
If you are familiar with Orlando vacation ownership, you probably know that there are more Orlando timeshares and timeshare units than in any other city in the world. And while this may seem like great news for vacationers who want to buy a timeshare indicating that they will have many beautiful, resorts from which to choose, it could be a little intimidating if you want to sell your Orlando timeshare.
The Real Question about Orlando Timeshare
So here’s the real question: are there too many Orlando timeshares already? Not if you take your cue from the business planners at Disney Vacation Club, Marriott Vacation Club, and other branded hospitality providers that have continued to expand their properties in the Central Florida area. And there are certainly not too many Orlando timeshares according to the amazing tourism numbers being reported by Visit Orlando. In 2011, Orlando set a new world record with 55.1 million visitors, an increase of 7.2 percent over the previous year’s total and even a 1.5 percent gain above the forecasted number for the year.
Insights like these are confidence building for the vacation ownership industry and should be inspiring to Orlando timeshare owners. If you are looking to buy timeshare in the Central Florida area, these stats tell you it as a growing and viable market. And if you are an existing owner, looking to sell timeshare in the Orlando area, you need only to look to the numbers to gain reassurance that there is measurable demand for Orlando timeshare.
Paul Tang, Chairman of Visit Orlando says, “We are known worldwide as the top family destination and we continue to be a top choice for inspiring meetings. Breaking the 55 million total visitation mark shows the strength of the Orlando brand.”
