After years of enjoying your timeshare vacation at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas with family and friends the economy has changed, kids have gotten older, jobs may have changed and no one seems interested or able to travel and enjoy vacation time as they once did.

With all these changes and the cost of ongoing maintenance fees there may come a time for you to consider selling your timeshare vacation and you may even consider trying to sell it yourself.

There are several questions you should consider before you attempt to sell your time share yourself:

  1. Do you really know what your timeshare is worth on today’s market?
  2. Do you know where and how to advertise your timeshare for sale?
  3. Do you know the legal documents required to sell your timeshare?

Selling your timeshare in today’s market is not as easy as a lot of people want you to believe and regardless of what some “expert sellers” may tell you, you should have a professional handle the transaction for you and contact a Hawaii licensed timeshare resale broker.

The first and most important reason why you should contact a licensed real estate professional to assist you in selling your timeshare is simple – timeshare is real estate and the majority of timeshares are deeded. Even if it is not directly deeded, a timeshare interval does represent a real estate interest and anyone involved in the sale of real estate is required by most states to be licensed.

Timeshare resale brokers can assist you in the selling of your timeshare by showing you comparable sales in order to reach a reasonable asking price for your timeshare interval.

Another important point to consider is that when you use the services of a timeshare broker you are assured that the escrow will be handled by a third party licensed and bonded escrow company, all the paperwork will be handled professionally and promptly and title searches will be complete. A licensed broker should always recommend getting title insurance which is also done thru escrow.

And remember, you should never pay an upfront fee to sell your timeshare vacation.
