When it comes to Timeshare, The word is NOW!

Buy Timeshare Now

Buy timeshare now.

An article from a Minnesota paper highlighted the negative but neglected the positive. The article expounded on why timeshares are haunting owners. It is true that there a lot of timeshares on the market. What the story did not say was that this is the absolute best time to buy a timeshare. Just do not buy it from the resort. If you were to buy timeshare at the resort today you would pay top dollar. Anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000 and more.

You can buy a timeshare through a timeshare broker for half price or less and get the same timeshare amenities. About 35 years ago people started to buy timeshare and now many of them are retiring, finding the nest empty, getting divorced, or just trying to simplify their lives. So they are ready to sell their timeshare. In fact, it is estimated that in the US alone there are nearly 8 million timeshare owners. On any given day I bet 10% of them would be willing to part with their timeshare for the right price, or even for any price.

The timeshare sales market is filled with opportunities to scoop up any timeshare resort for 50% to 75% of developers’ price – or less! The best bet would be to go through a timeshare resale broker who can get the deal closed, title transferred, banked weeks transferred, and so on.

If you are ready to buy timeshare, NOW is the time to take advantage of this timeshare buyers market!

If you have been waiting for a sign that this is the right time to sell your timeshare, that time has arrived.

Numerous timeshare developers are investing in new construction, hiring, and picking up the pace in giving timeshare tours. The timeshare resorts are selling in greater numbers and there is an optimism spreading across the industry.

I interpret that to mean that this is a growth season for timeshare resales. Here’s why.

More timeshare tours at the resorts means more sales. It also means many more touring timeshare resorts, hearing all the reasons why they should buy, but not buying because of the price. This is where timeshare resales comes in. Timeshare buyers are increasingly aware of the deals they can find on the timeshare resale market. They know they can save a large amount compared to what they would pay at the resort. Typically timeshares sell from 25% to 50% off the retail price on the resale market.

The logical conclusion is that there are more and more timeshare buyers looking for a deal. That is when they search for timeshares for sale by owner. If you were to Google search the phrase “timeshare resale broker” you’d find the number one best selling timeshare broker in the business.

Your best bet to sell your timeshare is to go with the one who has sold more timeshares this way than any other. That would be timeshare-resale-broker.com.

Now is the time to sell your timeshare. No doubt about it!

Focus On Puerto Vallarta Beach Timeshare Resorts

Recently an online travel magazine rated their best beach timeshare resorts in Puerto Vallarta. I did not much care for their selections – I guess I am partial to my favorite timeshare resorts in Puerto and Nuevo Vallarta. So here are MY selections for the best timeshare beach resorts in Puerto Vallarta!

My number one choice of a timeshare resort in Puerto Vallarta/Nuevo Vallarta is Paradise Village Spa & Resort. The timeshares at Paradise Village have resale prices ranging from $3,000 to $30,000. You can buy a timeshare at Paradise Village for a great price and these days affordability is a big factor in making your timeshare purchase a smart one. Price is not the only reason Paradise Village is my #1 choice. The real reason is the setting. Seriously!

Quite a few reviews of Paradise Village Spa and Resort reflect the same thing. Not everyone will have the same experience. Many complain of poor facilities, worn carpets, rusted vending machines and so on. Plus you’ve got to remember people will bad news seem to spread it twice as much. Happy customers don’t spread their views as much as unhappy. That’s just the way it is.

Puerto Vallarta has so much to offer those on vacation. Whale watching, theater, the arts, music festivals, holiday festivals, shopping, night life, and the list goes on. Vallarta usually celebrates important dates with large public concerts involving famous artists of national and international importance. These concerts normally take place in the outdoor theater “Aquiles Serdán” (Los Arcos del Malecón) and in el “Caballito”.

Great Location for a Great Vacation!

There are tons of beach timeshare resorts to choose from in Mexico, but Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta take the prize. Cabo san Lucas comes in second and should be mentioned for certain. Cabo is host to international fishing tournaments, the sight of extreme water sports, and features some of the most exotic and beautiful beaches in the world. Year after year Cabo draws millions of tourists who delight in the atmosphere as well as the affordability of a Mexico vacation.

Anyway, happy planning on your next beach vacation! I’d say consider this place in your plans either to exchange, rent, or buy resale.

Here are some other top choices for beach timeshares in the area: Mayan Palace Nuevo Vallarta, Club Regina Puerto Vallarta, Universal Vacation Club at Villa del Palmar, Villa Del Palmar, Mayan Palace Puerto Vallarta, Buganvilias Resort, Sea Garden Marina Vallarta, Club Velas Vallarta, Rancho Banderas Villas.

Exchanging Your Timeshare - 3 Easy Steps

One of the most frustrating aspects of owning a timeshare is having trouble exchanging you timeshare for another. I have heard stories from hundreds of timeshare owners who complain they can never make their timeshare exchange work in their favor. It does not matter if you use RCI or Interval International. The complaints are the same.

Here are the three critical steps to making your dream vacation come true when you exchange your timeshare.

Moon Palace Timeshare Resort Cancun

Moon Palace Timeshare Resort Cancun

Plan Ahead

Plan ahead. You cannot wait until one month or two months before your vacation to request an exchange and expect to get it. At a minimum you need to make your request six months in advance. Nine months is even better. There are some timeshare resorts that if you do not make your request a year ahead of time you will never get in. If you are more of a spontaneous traveler don’t plan on using your timeshare when you travel. That is just the reality of how the system works. The timeshare resorts will not leave a room empty for a week if they can rent it – and yes, they will rent it out to a non-owner or sell it to RCI/II wholesale. Plan your timeshare exchange six months in advance.

Flexible Time

While planning that far in advance you still have to be flexible about when you want to get that week. If you plan on using your timeshare on a summer vacation make your request for three different weeks in the summer. Do not request, for example, three different resorts all on the 4th of July or Labor Day. Spread out your three choices on the calendar and you have a better chance by far.

Sheraton Vistana Orlando Timeshare Resort

Sheraton Vistana Orlando Timeshare Resort

Flexible Place

Finally, be flexible on your destination. If you attempt to reserve a timeshare week during a major event at a specific location the hotels and timeshare resorts will be jam packed with requests. You would end up being very unlucky if you make your three choices all in Key West around Fantasy Week. Or, all in Daytona Beach during Bike Week. Keep an eye on other events around your timeshare exchange destination even if they are of no interest to you.

So that’s it: Plan Ahead, Flexible Time, Flexible Place. If you mix it up you have a much better chance of getting a timeshare exchange choice you’d be happy with.

Timeshare Vacations and Scuba Diving

Vacation and Holiday travel do not necessarily need to be expensive. If your hobby or avocation is scuba diving, here are a few great tips for making your next trip more affordable.  Accommodations at most great dive destinations are usually expensive. If you were to rent a timeshare, or buy a timeshare at your favorite dive location you would save a bundle over time!

Scuba Diving Timeshare VacationsFabulous timeshare condos are available for sale or rent in Aruba: Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club, Costa Linda Beach Resort, La Cabana Beach Resort, Renaissance Aruba Resort, Casa Del Mar Beach Resort, Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club, and Paradise Beach Villas to name a few. In the Cayman Islands, our resident diving enthusiast recommends Morritt’s Tortuga Club as her first choice. Other timeshare vacation condos for sale in Cayman Islands include Plantation Village Beach Resort, Coral Sands Resort, and 7 Mile Beach Resort. In Cozumel, you can find excellent dive resorts. For example Melia Vac Club @ Melia Cozumel, Occidental Resort Cozumel, RHC/Park Royal Cozumel, and Reef Club Cozumel.

Now for something TOTALLY different. Diving in Egypt and from timeshare resorts in the Middle East!

The first time I saw Sharm El Sheikh I was in the US Navy on a Cruiser. Having just passed through the Suez Canal we made a port call at Hurghada, Egypt on the Red Sea. From there I took a short boat tour of the area towards Sharm El Sheikh and got into a discussion with two of the passengers from the US. They were divers whose specialty was underwater photography. In fact they had photos published in National Geographic! Pretty impressive. I asked them “Why here?” “Best water for photography of coral, fish, and shipwrecks in the world” they replied. Wow! Judging from the surface no one could ever have guessed that.

There are timeshares in Egypt for certain. Most of them concentrate on diving in the Red Sea. I saw a few resorts in Hurghada during a fueling stop and Sharm El Sheikh twice from the ship. I must say my observation of the terrain around both areas look about as hospitable as the surface of the Moon. Not one green blade of grass or anything resembling a bush or tree. Yet I saw sheep being guided along rocky trails and camels all over.

What would inspire a developer like Hilton to invest in a resort in such a place? It has a secure location at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula. That may be why several of our Presidents and heads of state have had high level meetings there over the years.

Scuba Diving - Best in the Red SeaNonetheless, it absolutely the best destination for diving, wreck diving, and underwater photography.

Search for timeshares for sale in Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh and around the Red Sea!


Many of these timeshare condos offer dive packages, shuttles, equipment rental, and other services. So, if you are ready to rent, buy, or even sell your dive resort timeshare, check out www.rpmls.com for terrific service and great deals.

What Do Timeshares Do For The Economy?

Polo Towers Timeshare Las Vegas

Polo Towers Timeshare Las Vegas

What sort of impact do you think the timeshare industry has on the economy in the US? Does it matter? Of course. This vacation oriented industry creates jobs, contributes taxes, and generates economic activity that helps to keep the economy moving along. It can also be an indicator of how the nation’s economy is doing. Timeshare sales typically decline along with the economy and can be a predictor of growth and recovery as well.

“The U.S timeshare industry contributed an estimated $68.7 billion in consumer and business spending to the national economy in 2013, according to a study conducted by Ernst & Young for the American Resort Development Association (ARDA). That includes a total of 473,000 jobs with $23.6 billion in income, the study reports.” This quote from Travel Agent Central’s website confirms just what we in the timeshare industry all know: timeshares are a valid and valued service and product that the public wants.

Continuing on from the study by Ernst & Young: “Combined direct, indirect, and fiscal impacts in 2013 by the U.S. timeshare industry included $68.7 billion in consumer and business spending, 473,000 full- and part-time jobs, $23.6 billion in salaries and wages, and $8.5 billion in tax revenue.”

Renewed construction of timeshare towers and other interval related projects have continued to grow along with sales of already existing timeshare resorts.

Some resorts are reporting selling fewer units but with higher sales prices. As a result their dollar sales volume has increased while the numbers of closed sales has in fact fallen. But sales have not fallen enough to make a negative impact on profit. Those who trade stock in timeshare resort companies are rating quite a few timeshare companies as a “buy” or at least a “hold”. That is a much better rating than ” run away, run away! ”

Sedona Summit Timeshare Resort

Sedona Summit Timeshare Resort

With all the research and study of the resorts’ success in selling timeshare, what about the timeshare resale industry? Those numbers are hard to find. Timeshare resales by individuals and Realtors are very hard to find data for. However estimates are that timeshare resales are the fastest growing sector of timeshare sales. The advantage is that the asking prices from the owners will depend on the individual owners. They will not have to make an additional 50% to cover marketing and “advertising and promotion. Marketing costs are responsible for a significant portion of the final timeshare price accounting for at least 43 per cent and in most cases in excess of 50 per cent to the timeshare price. Compare this figure with Procter and Gamble, the global manufacturer of consumer products, whose worldwide television, print and electronic media costs amounted to 10 per cent of the sales. ”  Journal of Retail and Leisure Property

The timeshare industry adds jobs, pumps billions of dollars into the economy, and pays taxes. Timeshares make a huge impact on the economy – wherever they are.

Did You Finance Your Timeshare? You Need To Read This!

If you have ever financed a timeshare purchase chances are you are paying way more than you think!

The infamous timeshare deal

The worst possible situation to make a large purchasing decision is during the “timeshare presentation”. Think about all the cards stacked against you. You have been having the time of your life, you have enjoyed wonderful accommodations, great meals, and now the pitch. And if $19,000 is too much to pay on the spot (the average cost of a timeshare) then they can finance it for you. You have financed a car before, right? It likely does not work the same way with a timeshare.

Many of the top timeshare developers like Marriott, Hilton, and Bluegreen use major credit card companies to finance their timeshare sales. The first typical six months of payments are okay. However the interest rates jack up later and make the timeshare harder for the buyer to afford.

Meanwhile, the timeshare developers are deferring their taxes and stretching out their tax on sales over several years. By doing that they save millions in taxes.

I am no accountant. But it looks like this business model is set up to benefit the shareholders. The timeshare owners? Not as much.

Timeshare owners then have the experience of increasing monthly payments, annual maintenance fees, and the unwelcome surprise special assessments when hurricanes roll by.

What is a timeshare owners to do? You do have a few choices. Sometimes you can refinance the timeshare through your Credit Union or bank. They could possibly give you a better deal than what the timeshare resort developer has done. That would save you a considerable amount of money in interest payments alone.

By then, some timeshare owners are getting so frustrated and annoyed by the whole deal that they let the timeshare get foreclosed on. Bad idea – for all the reasons you can imagine.

Now You Can Relax!

On the other hand if you had a timeshare resales specialist working for you to find a buyer for your timeshare, maybe you could get your timeshare sold for enough to pay off the loan.

There is a market for timeshares on the resale market. Buyers are looking for deals. Sometimes they give ridiculously low offers and nothing comes of it. But some timeshare buyers realize the discount they are getting compared to the timeshare developer and make the deal. NOT paying retail price is a good thing!

If you are in a bind with your timeshare, sell it. Once it is done you will be glad you did.

When Buying a Timeshare Makes Good Sense

When Buying a Timeshare Makes Good Sense

Despite the naysayers, the warnings, the complaining timeshare owners, and other negative attitudes, there are times and/or situations where buying a timeshare and using it for your annual vacation just makes sense.

Now, “How?” you ask?

Marriott Desert Springs Timeshare For Sale

Marriott Desert Springs Timeshare For Sale

It is affordable. Consider the average cost to own or maintain a timeshare. There is an annual maintenance fee you pay that averages around $600. What can you get that is comparable to a 2 bedroom luxury condo in a resort setting with all the amenities that costs $600? Two words: You can’t.

It also makes sense from a financial standpoint when you buy your timeshare on the resale market from the owner. Perhaps it was advertised by or facilitated by another party or resale company. However you obtain the timeshare, be sure you do not pay the going retail rate. If you do you will lose thousands of dollars from the outset. That would take several years of vacations to make up for. What kind of savings are we talking about? Normally 25% to 50% or more! Factor that out over years of vacations and you have a vacation deal that will beat the socks off of any other option.

Buying a timeshare also makes sense when you can plan your vacations in advance. Six months in advance usually works. Advance planning for a vacation does several things for everyone involved. You can plan better activities, coordinate with more family and friends, and enjoy having a great vacation to look forward to.

Now let’s talk about what you get when you buy a timeshare. Specifically look at the size of the condo you’d be staying in. It will be much much larger than anything else the same money could buy. It would almost be like comparing a two bed studio motel with the two bedroom, two bath, kitchen, laundry luxury timeshare.  There’s really no comparison there.

Kitchen in Scottsdale Links Resort Timeshare

Kitchen in Scottsdale Links Resort Timeshare

Do you like to trim costs by eating your breakfasts or an occasional lunch in your own vacation condo? Then the timeshare is the solution there as well. A fully equipped kitchen is standard for timeshares. There’s no need to bring dishes, glasses, silverware, stove, or anything else a standard kitchen would have. It will all be there clean and good as new waiting for you when you check in!

Having a washer and dryer in your vacation lodging also makes sense when you are staying for a week or more. That way you don’t have to pack a ton of clothes because you can plan on doing your own laundry whenever you need to. Fewer things to bring =  less luggage to lug around.

Marriott Vacations Worldwide - Seeking New Locations To Build More Timeshare Resorts

Marriott Timber Lodge Timeshare For Sale By Owner

Marriott Timber Lodge Timeshare For Sale By Owner

Marriott Vacations Worldwide announced they will be looking to expand their presence in Asia and North America. They are looking to build resorts in areas where they presently have none.

Marriott Vacations Worldwide (timeshares) has a market cap of $1.573 billion and a P/E ratio of 31.38. Their stock has been recently raised to “Outperform” by Zacks, and six equities research analysts have rated the stock with a buy rating.

When Marriott first announced that it was going to spin off the timeshare division it was like a mother hen pushing the runt out of the litter. Marriott timeshares were not doing as well at the time – but then no timeshares were. Now that all the “recession era” timeshare inventory is quickly selling off they need more new timeshares to sell.

One true clear sign of a rebounding economy is growing luxury sales. I’m willing to bet that sales of RV’s, boats, and sports cars are rebounding as well. I’ll prove the point: “BMW Group posted its highest ever sales for July, with a total of 152,349 vehicles delivered worldwide, an increase of 12.3% over the same month last year (prev. yr. 135,613). Worldwide sales year-to-date also reached an all-time high with 1,106,876 vehicles sold, an increase of 6.8% over the same period in 2013 (1,036,179). ” Or this from RVIA.com (Recreational Vehicle Industry Association)  “RV shipments are projected to grow 7.5% in 2014 to 307,300 units, according to Dr. Richard Curtin, Director, Surveys of Consumers at the University of Michigan. January shipments totaled 24,379 units — 30.5% more than the same month in 2013.” Or from Bloomberg.com: “Purchases of powerboats — which include yachts, pontoons and fishing vessels — rose 18.9 percent in July from a year earlier, according to figures from Statistical Surveys Inc., a research company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.”

So are you a believer yet? Sales of timeshares are bouncing back. All the major timeshare developers are getting busy building, buying, and renovating anything they can market as a timeshare. It makes good sense now.

How can you take advantage of this surge? This is the best time to sell your timeshare or buy a timeshare.  Selling a timeshare is easier because the demand is obviously there. A huge demand. That is the main signal that your odds of selling your timeshare have gone up.

Buying a timeshare is also in the cards for you if you are ready. There are thousands of timeshare owners who are ready to sell their timeshare and need you to buy it. 2015 will be the year you get your dream vacation timeshare at a great discount price!

Flamingo Beach Resort Timeshare St Maarten

Running a marathon always starts with the first step. Selling your timeshare may not be as hard as running a marathon, but it does take persistence and patience.

The answer to the question of “Is now the best time to sell my timeshare?” is best answered by another question “Do you want to keep paying maintenance fees for a timeshare you never use?”.  If the answer to that question is “YES” then now is the time to get your timeshare on the market for sale and get it done once and for all.

Some timeshare owners get stuck in neutral in their decision to sell their timeshare. What will it cost? What will it sell for? Is the economy right?

There is a buyer for every timeshare. You bought it and others wanted to buy but walked away. Most still like the idea of timesharing but did not want to pay a retail price.

In overdeveloped areas like Orlando/Kissimmee there are far more timeshare units available than the demand for them. Just as it is with any commodity for example, the more supply and less demand there is for something the less the buyer will have to pay.

Other areas of the country are not as over developed. Take the western coast of Florida for example. Few new resorts have been built there, the timeshare owners seldom want to part with their timeshare in those locations and the demand is very high.

Yes the demand for vacation condos like timeshares is strong in Orlando but the supply is out of control huge! And more timeshare developments are breaking ground.

The best way to go about buying a timeshare in a market like this is to use a timeshare resale specialist that has a network of other professionals like brokers, title companies, escrow, attorneys, and so on. Plus make sure they have a track record of closing deals on timeshare sales. Some timeshare sales are tricky and take special expertise to get the job done. Ask a lot of questions. A timeshare resale pro will be happy to tell you about the timeshares they have sold, their most recent sale, and what the prospects are for finding you just what you want.

Better Than A Hotel Room – Yes?

So whether you are searching for a high end Marriott, Westin, or other timeshare resort or just a small town “lazy river” kind of place there are plenty of timeshare owners ready to sell you their timeshare at a huge discount!

There is a buyer for every timeshare. You bought it and others wanted to buy but walked away. Most still like the idea of timesharing but did not want to pay a retail price.

No matter what the economy is doing there will always be people ready to spend money on luxury items like boats, sports cars, and luxury vacation condos. Timeshares fit the bill for those who do not want to pay for and maintain a second home, a lake house, or other type of whole ownership.

Now is the best time to sell your timeshare. If you don’t get the process started now when will you do it?

Signs The Economy Is Turning Around - Diamond Resorts Timeshare Sales


Diamond Resorts Ridge on Sedona

In financial news this week Diamond Resorts International issued $30,990,000 of its timeshare loan backed notes. So what does that mean?

Several things. It indicates that Diamond Resorts has sold roughly $30 million in timeshare and are holding the loans on them. More importantly when Credit Suisse and Mountcliff Funding, LLC assisted in putting the deal together it showed that the financial industry is showing confidence in the quality of the loans Diamond Resorts is selling. Not too long ago this type of security, a timeshare backed loan, was considered a poor investment and no one would touch it.

Things have turned around in the timeshare market. Sales are surging, and the major timeshare developers are taking big steps to invest, build, add on, or complete projects that had been left idle for several years.

Plus lets not forget the timeshare buyers. People who buy timeshares are showing confidence in the economy when making this kind of purchase. They are also reflecting stability in their own personal financial situation. All these are signs of better economic days ahead. Especially for the fractional, timeshare, or condo interval industry.

Diamond Resorts International is one of the largest timeshare developers in the world. Their collection of timeshare resorts include more than 300 vacation destinations located in 33 countries throughout the continental United States, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, South America, Central America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Africa. From their website  “Diamond Resorts Corporation and its subsidiaries own, operate and manage vacation ownership resorts and, through resort and partner affiliation agreements, provide members and owners with access to 89 managed resorts, 163 affiliated resorts, 48 affiliated hotels and four cruise itineraries through THE Club® at Diamond Resorts International®.”

Diamond Resorts Lake Tahoe timeshare for salePoints ownership with THE Club at Diamond enable the timeshare owners to choose resort stays, airline tickets, rental cars and even cruises. And resort stays are not limited to the usual 6 nights. You can use your points to set up a 2 day stay or book a whole week. This gives THE Club members a huge amount of flexibility when it comes to planing their vacation.

Here’s a few Diamond Resort timeshares for sale just to give you an idea of what is available:

Diamond Resorts Lake Tahoe – 10,500 points, annual use, annual maintenance fee approx $1,100.

Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge Timeshare for sale by owner

Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge Timeshare for sale by owner

Marriott’s Mountain Valley Lodge in Breckenridge Colorado is a vacationers’ dream come true. This gold one bedroom timeshare available annually is priced to sell fast at $10,900!

Bid on Marriott’s Mountain Valley Lodge timeshare here.

Finding the best deals on Marriott timeshares for sale is easy here. This Marriott timeshare is the best selling in Colorado on the timeshare resale market. Several things account for its first place standing. Marriott timeshares are always in demand on the resale market. Almost always, current owners of Marriott timeshares buy timeshares on the resale market because they realize the savings by purchasing a timeshare from the owner. Also, the Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge is located in prime ski country – Breckenridge Colorado.

The view overlooks the Quick Silver Super Six chairlift with 27 lifts and more than 148 ski trails. No doubt the Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge has an awesome location. Even in the summer, this is a prime location for outdoor activities and family fun. Colorado is a great place to vacation.

Buying a timeshare on the resale market is the best way to get the best value in vacation property. You should never pay the retail price when someone is willing to sell their timeshare to you for less. Plus when you use the services of a reputable timeshare resales company you get the kind of experience you need to make sure the deal is complete.

Marriott Mountain Valley Lodge timeshare for sale by ownerDuring the negotiation of a timeshare sale there are many details that need to be covered that not every timeshare owner would necessarily think of. Agreements concerning the next use of the timeshare, availability of unused weeks, maintenance fees paid or not paid, and transfer of various rights and privileges need to be addressed and put in writing. That is where a timeshare resale specialist comes into action. If you want the transaction complete with all the loops closed then you shouldn’t go it alone.

Paying fees for services should not get you rattled either. If you want the service a professional can give you then you must be willing to pay for the service they provide. No one works for free. Along with the agreement to pay fees to a timeshare resales company you should be able to expect ethics, honest, and a fair deal. Anything less ventures into shady dealings that may not end well.

Work with a timeshare resale company that has success with sales – not just “offers”.

Doing The Timeshare Cabo Wabo

So just what is the Cabo Wabo? It’s a chain of nightclubs in Cabo San Lucas. But many vacationers have given many ways to identify a Cabo Wabo. Just use your imagination.

Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Timeshare CaboLast week an old friend of mine sent me some photos of his family on vacation in Cabo San Lucas. Of course it brought back a flood of memories – not only of a good friend, but of great places to see and things to do in Cabo.

When you mention traveling to Mexico these days most people shiver to think about the drug cartel violence on the border. But for the most part the violence is just that – on the border. The resort towns offer a safer place than you would think. That, in part, is why Mexico tourism is growing by leaps and bounds compared to other international travel spots.

Take Cabo San Lucas for example. How much more can you get removed from the border than at the end of the Baja peninsula on the Pacific Ocean? That would be like putting off a trip to Houston because of violence in St Louis. Cabo San Lucas features over sixty timeshare resorts in a setting that is beyond description. The Pacific Ocean, palm trees, luxury accommodations, and affordable prices make it a favorite for tourists from China, India, Russia, and North America.

Over the last several years ten timeshare resorts in Cabo San Lucas have dominated the timeshare resales market. These timeshare developments have everything going for them and buyers are looking to buy them right now! Here’s the ten top sellers in Cabo:

Pueblo Bonito Rose Timeshare Resort Cabo San Lucas

Pueblo Bonito Rose Timeshare Resort Cabo San Lucas

Pueblo Bonito Rose Resort, Hacienda del Mar, Pueblo Bonito Resort Los Cabos, Club Regina Los Cabos, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, Villa Del Palmar Cabo, Playa Grande Resort, Club Cascadas de Baja, Finisterra Club & Resort, Sol Mar Beach Club Resort.

The best selling timeshare in Cabo, Pueblo Bonito Rose, has a description that “sets the bar” for all other luxury timeshares: This awesome resort is located in the mystical, desert landscape of the southern Baja California peninsula. Situated at Land’s End, Pueblo Bonito Rose is surrounded by beautiful coastline, magnificent sea life, and the majestic nature of Los Cabos.

All of the above timeshare resorts in Cabo San Lucas Mexico have great inventory for sale at huge discounts! You’d be buying these from the owner not the resort.

Top Selling Bluegreen Timeshare Resales

Bluegreen timeshares are in great demand.  While there may be Bluegreen timeshare resorts in 36 locations – from Aruba to Hawaii to Florida – these top ten resorts have been sold on the timeshare resales market more than the rest.

La Cabana Beach Club Timeshare Aruba

La Cabana Beach Club Timeshare Aruba

La Cabana Beach Resort timeshare is the top seller among Bluegreen resorts. Located in Oranjestad Aruba, this immaculate timeshare destination stands heads and shoulders above the rest.

Bluegreen’s Mountain Loft timeshare came in second place with strong sales. Nestled in the mountains of Gatlinburg TN, this location offers a combination of serenity and beauty.

Bluegreen’s Christmas Mountain timeshare, Wisconsin Dells, offers year round activities for the whole family. Some of the featured recreation includes golf, fishing, swimming, or skiing.

One of the most well known timeshares in the Bluegreen group is one of the more recent additions to the family: The Manhattan Club. Located on West 56th Street, The Manhattan Club offers a wide variety of types of ownerships. Especially if you buy from one of the original owners.  You need to know that the maintenance fees you pay every year are not cheap. And, they tend to run into legal wrangling from time to time. BUT, you simply cannot beat the location. Situated between Broadway and Seventh Avenue, the resort is within walking distance to some of New York City’s finest attractions, hottest bars, restaurants, nightclubs, theaters and more!

Pono Kai Resort is fourth in our list of best selling timeshares for Bluegreen. Situated on the beach, Pono Kai Resort is on the eastern coast of Kauai. With the combination of palm trees, lush tropical landscaping, and the Pacific Ocean, your stress is sure to melt away.

Old Timeshare - New Gold Crown From RCI

Eastern Slope Inn Timeshare Resort

Eastern Slope Inn Timeshare Resort

From the Conway Daily Sun:  “CONWAY — Eastern Slope Inn Resort last week announced it has been awarded the prestigious RCI Gold Crown Resort property designation by RCI, the worldwide leader in vacation exchange. A select number of RCI affiliated resorts meet RCI’s requirements for recognition and have earned the RCI Gold Crown Resort award. These resorts have attained high levels of excellence in resort accommodations, hospitality and member experience ratings as measured by RCI. In the world of timeshares this is not such extraordinary news. THIS is what makes it extraordinary: “For more than 87 years, the historic elegance and awarded history of the resort is reflected in Eastern Slope Inn’s unyielding commitment to guest satisfaction.” Since the resort’s origins in 1926, the resort has experienced tremendous growth, spanning such capital enhancements as the construction of additional accommodations and most recently a new fitness facility and renovations to the main lobby — restoring it back to its historic elegance.”

With over 3.7 million members in RCI, this is a tremendous pat on the back for those who manage Eastern Slope Inn. Timeshare resorts, as they age, experience a decline in desirability most of the time due to their location, amenities, and/or management. That has not been the case with this Conway, New Hampshire timeshare resort. RCI also considers the timeshare owners’ feelings about their timeshare resort. Resort reviews are constantly being submitted by the owners and evaluated by both RCI and the timeshare resort. In order to attain a Gold Crown Resort designation from RCI the resort’s owner satisfaction grade must be high.

According to their website, “The Eastern Slope Inn Resort is an elegant, four-season resort located on the National Register of Historic Places in the center of New Hampshire’s North Conway Village. Situated on 40 acres, within walking distance of quaint shops, restaurants, cafes and popular attractions, the resort features 250 rooms bridging the charm of yesteryear with modern day comforts and conveniences. The main inn offers a variety of elegantly furnished guest rooms with many units featuring kitchenettes. Also on site, guests can choose from studios, townhouses and deluxe suites with gas fireplaces, spa tubs, full kitchens and living rooms. Resort amenities include the Eastern Slope Playhouse, indoor heated pool, outdoor hot tub, Flatbread Restaurant & Pub, tennis courts, fitness facility, playground, retail shops and walking trails to the Saco River.”

Inn Season at Pollard Brook

Numerous older timeshare resorts are dotted across the Green Mountains and White Mountains. They tend to have a loyal following by the owners and are well maintained. Vermont and New Hampshire offer four seasons of beauty, convenience, and affordability. I’d say these older timeshare resorts will be around much longer yet. Maybe even longer than those being built today.

More timeshare resorts in New Hampshire: Attitash Mountain Village, Inn Season at Pollard Brook, Village of Loon Mountain, Cathedral Ledge Resort, Summit at Four Seasons, Cold Spring Properties, Forest Glen Inn, Steele Hill Resort, Inns of Waterville Valley, The Windrifter.
