You can literally save thousands of dollars when purchasing a timeshare resale versus purchasing a timeshare directly from the developer. While in some instances not all the benefits of buying retail are transferable, the dollar savings of purchasing a timeshare resale is significant.

Determine what is the right timeshare resale for you

Timeshare resale choices are endless and how you and your family like to vacation will determine the type of timeshare resale you should consider purchasing. The timeshare resale inventory is quite varied with a number of options to be considered when buying.

There are vacation clubs, point-based programs, fixed weeks, floating weeks, annual ownership, seasons, view category, etc. that should be considered when purchasing a timeshare resale.

Timeshares do not trade equally and this should be a consideration when deciding what type of timeshare resale would best suit your vacation needs.

How does the process of buying a timeshare work?

Work with an experienced licensed timeshare resale professional who has many years of experience in the timeshare industry, is knowledgeable about the timeshares you may be considering and is an A+ Rated Accredited Business BBB Member.

Remember, timeshare is real estate and using a licensed real estate professional will ensure that the entire transaction is handled correctly and any questions you may have can be answered promptly and accurately.

Offers should always be presented in writing. This will eliminate any misunderstandings.

Once the Seller and the Buyer agree on the price and terms of the sale, escrow will be opened.

In order to protect your assets, all funds should  be held by a licensed, bonded, third party closing agent, in a trust account until the closing, at which time the closing agent will disburse the funds and you will receive a free and marketable title.

The Title Search and Escrow process is similar to buying a home and usually takes approximately 30 – 60 days.

The closing agent will also handle the transfer of any documents in compliance with the resort and association requirements and notify the resort management company of the change of ownership.

Once the transfer of documents is completed, you will have  the rights, benefits and privileges to enjoy your new vacation timeshare!
