Finding the right agent to handle your timeshare transaction is very important!

Timeshare is all about spending time with your loved ones, traveling and saving money too!  Purchasing a timeshare is an investment in your future vacations.  With so many things to think about when considering purchasing or selling a timeshare, working with a professional, licensed real estate is critical and will give you peace of mind in all of your transactions.

Many well known hotel brands such as Hilton, Marriott and Starwood and luxury golf and spa resorts have gotten into the timeshare business and offer a variety of options for the first time buyer.  But, remember when purchasing from a developer, you are paying more (most times 30-50% more) than you have to for the same product you can buy from a timeshare resale broker.  When you purchase from the developer you are paying the costs for all the people who toured but  did not purchase.

If you already own a timeshare and are considering selling, where do you find an agent that can handle your transaction and ensure you get fair market value for your timeshare?  As in any real estate transaction, you must do your homework and take your time in researching the best agent who will listen to you and work for you in accomplishing your goals.  You should choose an agent who specializes in the area or brand name of timeshare you own.

When searching for timeshare resale agents, you’ll want to find out if they are licensed real estate agents, memebers of the Better Business Bureau and how long they have been in business.  Ask for referrals.  And beware of any company that requests an upfront fee to sell your property.  It is normal for an agent to charge a commission, but reputable companies only make their money after the transaction is completed to your satisfaction.

People that buy timeshares are smart, but the really smart people buy timeshare resales!

Don’t pay more for your vacation time that you have to-buy a resale!
