Beginner's Guide to Timeshare Resale

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 285

Timeshare is in fact what the name indicates, a share in time. This share you keep is frequently inside a specific resort, or with a developer or in a vacation club. Marriott, De Vere, Macdonald, Diamond Resorts, Anfi are developers which offer timeshares or timeshare points in one way or another. Owning this share enables you to stay in a given resort for the length of time you have just bought, so for instance buying a timeshare week at Marriott's Marbella Beach will permit you that week (fixed or "floating") annually. Once you're familiar with the possibilities of timeshare it will not be long until you discover the term timeshare resale.

The simplest way of thinking about timeshare resale is akin to having something pre-owned. So as an alternative to buying timeshare directly from a resort or developer you get it from a pre-existing owner who, for whatever reason, is looking to sell their timeshare. Now needless to say this has the benefits associated with buying pre-owned, the most important being cut price timeshares (sometimes up to 65% cheaper!) and skipping an extended sales pitch.

Even though "pre-owned" also suggests a feeling of "second best" of getting something passed down, or abandoned by another person. This is how the resemblances of resales and buying pre-owned begin to vanish. If you are thinking of buying a fixed week unit (i.e. same studio number) inside the same resort, the maintenance costs that are paid yearly are used for the upkeep of the resort's rooms and facilities, which means you'll not feel like you have purchased second hand when you check in.

Buying timeshare resale can be very daunting for people who are approaching it fresh; the truth is that selling timeshare by means of resale can feel the same, even for an experienced owner. This is down to a couple of things fundamentally, firstly the difficulties of the sale and additionally, the standing of some timeshare resales "organizations".

Those looking to buy or sell timeshare must be aware that the process of giving over the paperwork, paying transfer fees and any legal checks that may be involved are usually very necessary and very, very daunting. This is where a resales company or broker really shines; they aid the sale process from advertising, to striking a deal, to working with the transference of documentation, conveyancing and legal checks. This all really means that you just choose the timeshare you wish and get in touch with them if you're thinking of buying or if you're selling your timeshare, just provide them with the details and they will publicise it for you.

Since the economic depression not long ago, there has been an increase in dodgy resellers, businesses that tell you they are working on your behalf but simply end up conning you; propositions from phantom buyers that are not real, requests for enormous sums of money that you will not see again, and quite often more besides. This doesn't signify that all timeshare resales organizations will do this just that you have to be cautious when approaching or being called by them.

One of the greatest things to check for is registration with the Timeshare Association (TATOC) or the other regulating organisations like RDO, ARDA and others. They've got directories of authorized resellers which are regulated stringently by legislation and law and can offer guidance and details concerning the best approach in case you are worried about a specific organization.

With the right approach buying timeshare resale is a safe and more affordable means of going about things rather than going direct to the resort, and the right resales company can go through the legal aspects and challenges of the procedure so that you do not have to.
