Breaking Down The Sales Tactics Of Timeshare Companies

Timeshare Exit Reasons

July 1, 2019 – by James Cox

Timeshare Exit Reasons

Happy people make happy decisions. Over the years, thousands of people have fallen for the sales tactics of timeshare companies. These people are intelligent, they work hard, and they know that some of these resorts are actually scams. Yet they still fall for the tricks. Why is that? To better understand why this happens so often, we have to look at the process that is involved with selling these spaces.

Getting You In The Door

The chances of someone randomly buying a property from a cold call is less than zero if you think about it. People want to see the property, get an idea of the costs, what’s going on in the area and more. The only way these companies have a chance is to make sure that people are coming in and seeing the area, seeing all that it has to offer and convincing them that they want to stay here as often as possible. The best way to do this is by offering free trips, free tickets to local attractions and so forth. Imagine if you can stay in Orlando for an entire weekend without having to pay for a hotel. The only catch is that you have to sit through a presentation for a few hours and meet with a salesperson. That seems like a fair trade and you are going in with a mindset that you are not going to buy anything. So, how can you be tricked into signing for something that you do not want?

The Hook

The presentation isn’t actually designed to sell you on anything. It’s designed to put doubt in your mind of all the things you’ve heard about timeshares that are negative. Most people know timeshares aren’t a good investment, but they do not know why. These presentations are designed to show you why those “rumors” should be ignored and why putting your money into this property is smart and can save you thousands of dollars a year.

There’s plenty of free food and alcohol around as well and the idea is that once the presentation is done, you can easily walk away and go enjoy the rest of your free weekend. Or can you? These companies want you to walk away, they want you to go have a great time around town. They want your kids to enjoy the swimming pools and for you to drive by all those expensive hotels and see people unhappy that they are crammed in a building with hundreds of strangers, living out of suitcases rather than having their own place to go to.

This is when you start to wonder if everything you heard in that presentation was true. “If so many people have purchased a timeshare before then maybe they aren’t all bad. Maybe it’s not a scam, maybe it’s a good investment because I can come here two or three times a year with my family and save a fortune on hotels and be more comfortable.” That’s all it takes; this little bit of second-guessing and you’re hooked.

It wasn’t the high-pressure sales tactics that got to you, it was the information presented in a calming way, the relaxing, fun time you are having in the area and seeing the costs of hotel rooms that gets to you. This is when you start to think about the prospect of actually owning a timeshare and how fun it would be. Then you start thinking about how easy it is to rent out your week as you learned in your presentation.

If you do not want to come down for the week, then you can just find someone else to cover the costs and maybe even make some extra money off of it? This is all it takes for you to change your mind and that’s exactly how the process works when it comes to convincing smart, hardworking people that they should buy their own timeshare.

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.
