The Cheap Timeshare - Too Good To Be True?

May 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 153

If you are in search of timeshares to purchase on eBay you may have observed a few weeks coming in at £10 or even significantly less. There is no secret that the timeshare industry has seen healthier days, so how do some resellers get away with merchandising their timeshares for such a low price?

Whilst it is valid that some people looking for the fastest sale are likely to sell as cheap as possible in order to get a customer speedily, however the upfront expense on a timeshare isn't always the sole expense concerned. There is often the expectation that you can get your hands on a week for close to nothing and that is the end of the financial considerations. Not surprisingly as enticing as this may appear this is often not the case, the reseller is required to add-in the price of legal checks, transference of documents and potential outstanding maintenance fees on the picture.

While looking to acquire timeshare on eBay the procedure is made easier as the listing price should include all the various costs and charges linked to the initial sale of the timeshare, meaning that you can't get stung by substantial sums of cash after you've clicked "buy now" anticipating a good deal.

Still you can see businesses on eBay merchandising timeshares for near to nothing, what is going on here? Most customers looking to buy are going to want the best price as long as the offer looks good. Although it actually should be emphasised that with anything that has long lasting expenses like owning a timeshare, you'll want to do some bit of research before clicking "buy now" for that 1p week in the sunshine.

Of course some resellers have particular deals with the resorts which own the timeshares. Sometimes the resort won't let those owners give back the timeshare when they no longer wish to pay the associated costs. In cases where the resort won't accept the timeshare back, they might set up special arrangements with resales businesses where legal fees or transfer costs are absorbed by either the vendor or subsidised by the resort itself to the resales company. The long and the short of it is that this kind of sale is often rare.

These deals are usually fine and dandy when they can be found, even though it is not always a true reflection of the price of the timeshare for sale. Elite destinations can nevertheless be found cheaply, although it is rather rare to locate a quality week for close to nothing. Having mentioned earlier that eBay requires that the charges are expressed within the price of the listing, several vendors (private or else) don't always conform to this and state the added expenses within the item description - so buyer beware.

For anybody who is ever uncertain concerning the details of a timeshare for sale on eBay, get in touch with the resort first, there you are able to discuss the full details of the process and make sure that you don't get any unpleasant shocks later on.
