Timeshares 101: What You Need To Know
Guides, Tips, and Hacks
3 min read
Each timeshare sales process has a story. And although some do have happy endings, others turn from fairy tales into horror stories. Let’s take a look at where timeshare sales go wrong.
The ideal timeshare story goes like this: A prospective buyer attends a sales presentation. During the presentation, the sales rep offers an amazing deal. The buyer uses their extra money in the bank to take advantage of this deal. And they are rewarded with a free gift just for attending. Then they spend the remaining years of their life paying reasonable maintenance fees in exchange for wonderful vacations with their family. When they die, the timeshare passes to their children, who are happy to do the same with their families.
Each timeshare story starts with a timeshare purchase, usually during a sales presentation. But unfortunately, not all sales presentations are like the one above. Here are a few ways the story turns dark.
In our perfect story, the owner happily pays a bargain purchase price plus appropriate annual fees to support amazing vacations. In real life, that’s not always the case.
All timeshare owners pay maintenance fees to cover basic resort maintenance and upkeep. But here’s how fees get out of control and speed toward an unhappy ending.
The final plot twist is that once the timeshare sale is final, it’s difficult to escape. Some owners rent out units they can’t afford or can’t use, but this isn’t a permanent solution. And some owners try to sell, but the resale market is highly competitive. Others turn to the resort, trying to give back their timeshare to be free of the obligation. Unfortunately, most resorts make this very difficult. Is there no escape?
