6 Awesome Timeshare Resources

If any industry deserves to be labeled “buyer beware,” it’s the timeshare industry. Read on for timeshare resources to help you protect yourself!

Since day one, timeshares have engaged in high-pressure and misleading sales practices. It’s no wonder they have to lure potential customers with “free” gifts and prizes. That’s why we’ve created a list of timeshare resources to help prospective buyers and sellers avoid scams.

The Better Business Bureau

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is a private, non-profit member-based organization that works to foster “honest and responsive relationships between businesses and consumers—instilling consumer confidence and advancing a trustworthy marketplace for all” (Source: Better Business Bureau). Founded in 1912, the BBB is an organization of over 100 groups across the US. They provide a wide range of information for consumers, including a lot of information on the timeshare industry. Before you do business with any resort, contractor, resale firm or exit company, make sure to check their BBB profile. And what you’ll find about many timeshare companies isn’t pretty. If you do decide to do business with a company with a poor grade, at least you’ll go in with your eyes wide open.

Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports is “an independent, nonprofit organization that works side by side with consumers for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace. We use our rigorous research, consumer insights, journalism, and policy expertise to inform purchase decisions, improve the products and services that businesses deliver, and drive regulatory and fair competitive practices.” (Source: Consumer Reports).

CR has long been a reputable source for marketplace information of all kinds. Subscribe to their magazine or check out their many online resources on timeshares.

Timeshare Users Group

Timeshare Users Group is the first and largest site dedicated to providing timeshare resources to owners and prospective buyers. You’ll find articles, a marketplace, and an online forum. TUG is a rich source of information and community. And check here before you buy for tips on getting the best deals and avoiding scams. They have a lot of free content or you can join for a small fee to access all features.

eBay

Interested in buying a timeshare? Only have $1? You’re in luck. Check eBay. On any given day, you’ll find hundreds of timeshares for $1. And many are offering other incentives such as free closing costs and more. Before you buy from a resort or developer, check out eBay. Of course, you will want to ask yourself why so many people are essentially giving away their timeshares…and you might want to imagine how you could recoup your losses if you decided to try and resell a timeshare.

Google Reviews

Check reviews here before you do business with any timeshare resort or developer. While many people are happy with their timeshare experience, this industry is well-known for those who are quite dissatisfied. Although there are many review sites, some of which we’ve mentioned, Google reaches so many people. Do your due diligence and see what others have to say! It may save you thousands!

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
