Different Types of Timeshare Ownership

Vacationing has been proven to be good for our health and gives us quality family time together. While timeshare should never be purchased as a financial investment, owning a time share is an investment in quality vacations in the future for your family and loved ones.

Timeshare resales can be purchased for thousands of dollars less than developer prices. However, as in all real estate transactions, you must do your homework, do your research and be an educated and informed buyer and understand the different types of timeshares. Timeshare resales have proven to be one of the best buys on the time share market offering significant discounts at some of the most prestigious resorts and properties around the world such as  Hilton timeshareMarriott timeshareHyatt timeshare and Starwood timeshare.

Deeded Ownership: Deeded ownership means that you own the property just like your home. You can rent it, will it to your children, give it away or sell it.

Leasehold Interest: A leasehold interest means you own the property for a specific number of years. Many Mexico time shares are Leasehold.

Fractional Ownership: Fractional ownership offers individuals the opportunity to buy partial ownership of an upscale property in a resort area. Picture mountain chalets with walk-out skiing in the Rockies, oceanfront houses and/or condos on island properties in the Caribbean and Hawaii. These upscale properties include resort-style amenities such as on-site restaurants, fitness clubs, full service spas, golf courses and in many cases concierge services.

Bi-ennal Ownership: This means you are able to use your vacation timeshare every other year.

Floating Week: This type of ownership allows you to choose any week within your season of timeshare ownership.

Fixed Week: You purchase the specific week you want to take your time share vacation each year, i.e., 4th of July week or Christmas Week.

Points: With Points you own a specific number of points that allows you to use the points in a number of different ways. For instance, if you owned  7000 annual points at Hilton Hawaiian Village in Oahu, Hawaii you could use it to book a two bedroom unit for a week or use 4800 points to book a one bedroom unit and use the remaining 2200 points and stay in a studio and have two weeks of vacation or you can use the remaining points on another vacation at another time of year in a different location.
