The Latest Turn In the Starwood - Marriott - Anbang Timeshare Deal

Sheraton Desert Oasis

Sheraton Desert Oasis

Here’s the quote from April 20, 2016, “Today, shareholders from Miami-based Interval Leisure Group (ILG), to whom Starwood is selling Vistana, approved the $1.5 billion acquisition by 95 percent of votes cast, representing 92 percent of shares.”

More details of the deal: “Vistana comprises 22 timeshare resorts with approximately 220,000 timeshare owners. Under the terms of the deal, ILG will have the rights to use the Westin and Sheraton brands in vacation ownership, and existing timeshare owners for the resorts can continue to use the Starwood Preferred Guest program.”  (source)

So current owners of Starwood (mainly Sheraton and Westin) timeshare intervals will be able to continue to use their options and points as usual. Future owners will not. But they will be able to use the Westin and Sheraton resorts. At least that’s how it stands today.

Westin Mission Hills

Westin Mission Hills

However, the deal isn’t completely done until it is done. Some other details may change so don’t hold me to it. Shareholders and others may change parts of the deal until it is complete.

Some of the timeshare resorts include Sheraton Vistana Orlando, Sheraton Desert Oasis, Sheraton Vistana Villages, Sheraton Mountain Vista and others.

Remember, just a few weeks ago Anbang had an offer on the table for Starwood for $14 billion. Unless Marriott trumps that deal, Starwood would become a Chinese held hotel/hospitality company. But that is a separate deal. Keep in mind, Starwoods’ spinoff of Vistana resorts to ILG is separate from Marriott’s offer for Starwood’s hotels.

Do THIS Before You Buy a Timeshare

checklistThe temptation is very real. You are in an idyllic setting – whether at a tropical beach, in the mountains, or in an exciting city. You have forgotten all your stress and worries at home and work and are enjoying fine cuisine, wine, and music.

Then comes the offer, “If you buy this timeshare NOW you will save $X,000!! This is a one day offer only”.

Yes the temptation is real.

But.

Have you answered these questions first?

How much will it cost. Really! There are more costs than the “discounted” price. Special assessments run into the thousands. Financing turns that discount into an overall loss. If you really can’t plan ahead and lose your vacation week it ends up being a total loss! What does it really cost?

What do other owners think? Have you had a chance to talk with owners of the timeshare you are considering buying?  What have the maintenance fees done over the years? Do other owners speak well of the resort development and management team? Owner services’ reputation? Have you sought out online forums and reviews where you can read some honest feedback?

Are your vacation times predictable?  If not, go the other way. Planning ahead by 6 – 9 months or longer for a vacation is simply out of the question for so many people. And that turns a great deal into a deal that just can’t get done. If you can’t go on vacation when you want, you can’t get a reservation that will work.

Have you SEEN the resort?  Have you seen the timeshare you want to buy and have it deeded to you for life? Would you be happy spending at least 50% of your vacation time there?  Remember, you cannot always depend on exchanges to get you what you want.

Do you expect it to exchange well? If it is an off season week in Nowhere, USA don’t expect to trade it for Maui’s peak season resorts.

Can I wait 24 hours? In other words, sleep on it. The next day may bring you a new perspective, more information, and either solidify your decision or entice you to run away.

Most important of all, get in touch with a timeshare resale broker. You’ll save time, money, and a whole lot of headaches.

These 5 Things Will Change The Way You Value Your Timeshare

HorsesonthebeachWhen most of us bought our timeshare our circumstances were just right. We bought it with no problem. The maintenance fee was manageable. The whole family and extended family used it often. It was completely worth it!

As time goes on, and sometimes sooner than you’d think, the circumstances in life change so that owning and using a timeshare becomes impractical. These are the top five things I have heard over the last 15 or so years from other owners as to why they decided to sell or just get rid of their timeshare.

1. Financial Change – A job change. An unexpected expense. A huge maintenance fee increase. A special assessment. All of these things happen and some of them will dramatically change our finances. Without fail, the first obligation to go is the timeshare.

emptynest2. Empty Nest – We bought our timeshare when our children were young and thoroughly enjoyed it for many years. Now that they are grown and on their own our lives are too complicated to vacation together. Even planning a Sunday dinner is hard to pull off! What do we do with our timeshare?

3. Divorce – So who gets the timeshare in the divorce? I seriously doubt you will want to vacation together again! Something has to be done with it and usually without much time to do it.

4. Health – Many times I have heard from timeshare owners that their health is such that they cannot travel easily any longer. They have to stay close to their family doctor in case of emergencies, or just cannot move about like before.

5. Retirement – You would also be surprised how many people have said they planned to use their timeshare more once they retired. But that never seems to work out. They have grown weary of the same resort year after year and something always seems to interfere with making vacation plans in advance. Plus, after retirement, that whopping maintenance fee is as much as or more than your housing costs. And that is for only one week a year!

Once one of these circumstances take place you won’t value your timeshare like you used to. In fact, it will become a liability.

So what do you do?

Consult a timeshare resale specialist who can help you sort all this out and find the best solution for you. A solution that is tailor made for your situation and keeps your best interests at heart.

The Pool At Westin St John

The Pool At Westin St John

Situated near Honeymoon Beach, the Westin St John is in a magnificent location. Honeymoon Beach is one of the top places to go in St John. Much of this area of the island is part of the Virgin Islands National Park. For example Trunk Bay, Cinnamon Bay, Watermelon Cay, Reef Bay Trail, and the Annaberg Sugar Plantation are all part of the National Park. In addition, there are endless opportunities for scuba, snorkeling, paragliding, parasailing, deep sea fishing, hiking, nature and wildlife tours, water sports, eco tours, boat rentals, jet skiing, mountain biking, and myriads of breathless moments at both sunrise and sunset on the beach.

While there are no golf courses on St John, on St Thomas you’ll find one of the best:  “St. Thomas’ Mahogany Run, a George and Tom Fazio design, boasts 18 of the most beautiful and challenging holes in the Caribbean. Golfers extol the virtues of this 6,022-yard, par-70 championship course for its sheer beauty and exhilarating play, especially on the 13th, 14th and 15th holes. This signature trio, aptly nicknamed the Devil’s Triangle, turns an already ambitious round of play into a veritable cliffside drama, where golfers must overcome a formidable stretch of Caribbean Sea that sprawls between the tee and the green.”(source)

The Inherited Timeshare - Can I Avoid It?

 

Marriott Newport Coast Villas Timeshares For Sale

Marriott Newport Coast Villas Timeshares For Sale

With nearly $8 billion a year in US sales alone*, there are throngs of people who own timeshares.

Do they all keep the forever? No.

Many changes in life’s circumstances push timeshare owners to sell or dispose of their timeshares. But what if you come to the end of you life and you still own a timeshare?

Normally, the timeshare passes on to the heirs.

Unless.

According to one real estate attorney, you can avoid inheriting this timeshare as long as you didn’t sign the contract. If you are not on the contract, the timeshare developer will have a hard time holding your feet to the fire to assume the responsibility of paying the annual maintenance fees – especially if you have no inclination to use the timeshare.*

Sheraton Desert Oasis

Sheraton Desert Oasis

But before all of this happens the best case scenario is that you as a timeshare owner enlist the help of a timeshare resale specialist or broker to sell it for you. This way, you will be able to at least recoup some of what you have spent on it.

And some folks have spent a lot! Anywhere from $8,000 to well over $50,000 is what timeshare weeks retail for as the first time buyer. But will you get all of that back?

You have to be realistic in your expectations on what you can get out of your timeshare. While selling your timeshare may not net what you’d ideally like to see, at least you would be rid of the timeshare maintenance fees and special assessments that continuously roll around.

*You should be able to refuse this inheritance as long as you didn’t sign the contract, and your credit rating should not be impacted. “If you’re not on the contract, the timeshare company doesn’t have a legal hold on you,” according to a real estate attorney. (source – MarketWatch.com)

*The timeshare industry in the U.S. generates nearly $8 billion a year in annual sales, according to the American Resort Development Association, which represents many timeshare developments

Why Buying Timeshare Is A Smart Cost Savings Move

CashIt used to be that if you told someone you had bought a timeshare, they’d think you had fallen for a high pressure pitch to buy something you either didn’t need, or could not afford.

Lately, a new light has been shed on timeshare ownership: Buying a timeshare on the resale market is not only a smart way to save on your initial purchase, but over time, will save you thousands of dollars.

How?

Lets say you vacation one week a year. If you rent a hotel at a nice resort at a great location you’ll pay anywhere from $250 to $400 per night. That is at least $1,750 a week on the low side. After the taxes you’ll pay and other hotel charges it will easily average $2,000 a week just for lodging.

And that is at TODAY’s prices.

Over 20 years you will have paid $40,000 for your vacation lodging. And again that is on the low side of an estimate.

50percentoffIf you buy a timeshare for the average of $16,400 and pay maintenance fees each year can you imagine how much money you’d save? That does not even factor in the future price of lodging. And, last time I checked prices are not going down. That also does not include the massive upgrade you get by vacationing in your timeshare: much larger space, individual bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, in the room laundry, and the list goes on.

Clearly, the most cost effective way to vacation is by using a timeshare.

PLUS, if you buy your timeshare on the resale market you could get as much as a 50% discount off the retail price!

Huge Savings.

More Space.

More Amenities.

Quality Resorts.

Timeshare resale. It just makes sense.

Acapulco Timeshare Update

 

Aerial View Vidafel Mayan Palace Acapulco

Aerial View Vidafel Mayan Palace Acapulco

Acapulco, Sinaloa Mexico, was once one of the most sought after vacation destinations in the world.

Today, it holds the distinction of the murder capital of Mexico.

The reason? The State Department says it well: “One of Mexico’s most powerful criminal organizations is based in the state of Sinaloa, and violent crime rates remain high in many parts of the Sinaloa.”

Americans are asked to defer all non-essential travel to large parts of the following states: Coahuila, Guerrero, Michoacán, Nayarit, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Colima, where violent an powerful drug groups control parts of their territory and often engage in violent battles with rival gangs and government forces.

This battle has been going on over 10 years now and there seems to be no end in sight.

The citizens of Mexico continue to go there. But foreign tourism is virtually gone.

In fact, the port of Acapulco saw six Canadian and one American cruise ship stop there in 2015.

A far cry from the hundreds of cruise ships annually during Acapulco’s peaceful times.

Vidafel Mayan Palace Acapulco

Vidafel Mayan Palace Acapulco

What is a timeshare owner to do if they own an Acapulco timeshare?

If you’re going to keep it, you will have to exchange it. Unless you want to run the risk of getting caught in the crossfire between cartel and military violence.

Absent of that option your last choice is to sell it. Preferably to a Mexican citizen who will feel more confident and able to use it safely.

Finding the buyer? The best bet is by using a timeshare resales broker with international sales like RPMLS.com. Having sold properties from 29 countries to buyers from all over the world, they have the contacts, experience, and know how to get the job done – no matter what obstacles may be in the way.

Make no mistake, there is a buyer for your Acapulco timeshare. But you won’t find them by running an ad in your local paper or online.

International timeshare brokers at RPMLS.com have done it before and can do it for you!

Can I Deduct My Timeshare As A Loss On My Taxes?

income taxAs April 15, 2016 approaches, I am starting to get this perennial question again:

“Can I Deduct My Timeshare As A Loss On My Taxes?”

First of all you must know that I am not a tax advisor, or an attorney. You may need to retain an attorney or hire a tax accountant to resolve this question at some point.

However, as a rule, the answer is no: You are not generally able to deduct any losses on a timeshare purchase or resale.

irsOver the years this question has been tested with the IRS in a number of ways and they (the feds) always consider a timeshare to be a depreciating luxury item that does not have prospects of growing in value. In other words, consider the value of an automobile when you first buy it. If you were to sell it the next month you’d not get what you paid for it. You would get less. That loss is not deductible for tax reasons.

And so goes for timeshares.

You may have paid $20,000 or more for your timeshare, and sold it for far less. The difference is a loss but it is not a loss that the IRS will allow a deduction for.

If you need more info on this or any legal or tax questions call an attorney or tax accountant.

It just might save you some aggravation.

The Top Ten Timeshares of Las Vegas!

Hilton Grand Vacation Club Flamingo Las Vegas

Hilton Grand Vacation Club Flamingo Las Vegas

The HGV Club at Flamingo Las Vegas is by far the best selling timeshare in Las Vegas on the resale market. For quite some time Hilton Grand Vacation Club has dominated the Las Vegas resale market for timeshares. Not only is Las Vegas in demand as a destination, but timeshare buyers feel HGV Club is a great value when they buy resale. Their recent announcement in February of 2016 that they will become an independent company has had little impact on day to day operations. Owners aren’t reporting any significant changes either.

The next two after the first two HGV Club timeshares are Polo Towers and Jockey Club. Both of these timeshare resorts are long time players in the Las Vegas timeshare world. Polo Towers’ first tower (of three) was built in 1992. In 1977 a group of investors formed Jockey Club Resort Properties. Roughly 270 condominiums were divided up into weekly intervals which ultimately numbered over 14,000. Quite a few of the remaining condos were and still are whole ownership properties.

Marriott Grand Chateau Las Vegas Timeshare 3

Marriott Grand Chateau Las Vegas Timeshare

Marriott’s Grand Chateau deserves to be mentioned not only because of its place on the list but because of its consistent performance as a desirable timeshare resort in Las Vegas. Since its inception, the Grand Chateau has been one of the very best selling timeshares on the resale market. It has never fallen out of favor or focus as far as Marriott timeshare owners are concerned. It is a quality resort with a name that exudes quality as well.

So in summary, the best selling timeshares in Las Vegas are: HGVClub at Flamingo Las Vegas, HGV at Las Vegas Hilton, Polo Towers, Jockey Club, Marriotts Grand Chateau, Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Desert Club Resort, HGVClub on Las Vegas Strip,Wyndham Grand Desert, Tahiti Village,  and Consolidated Club de Soleil.

Its even better when they are also a REALTOR!

Over the years I’ve spoken to quite a number of timeshare owners who were Realtors. The problem was they assumed that getting their timeshare closed would be the same as selling a house. “I’ve done this hundreds of times!” they’d tell me.

But were they aware of the snags that could come up in the closing process – especially when there are multiple jurisdictions to consider?

When you get ready to sell your timeshare, it is best to use a timeshare Broker: Someone who has specific knowledge and experience getting timeshares closed whether they are located in Hawaii or Las Vegas.

Hilton Next To Spin Off Timeshare Business

Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare resale

Hilton Grand Vacations – Las Vegas

Following the lead of Marriott and Starwood, Hilton Worldwide Holdings, Inc plans to spin off their timeshare division by the end of the year. According to the Wall Street Journal “With its timeshare business, Hilton Grand Vacations, the company will split off a segment that has represented about 12% of its top line and that has recently performed better than the larger hotel business. The new entity will count about 50 club resorts in the U.S. and Europe in its portfolio, and it will have an exclusive, long-term licensing agreement with Hilton to market, sell and operate resorts.” WSJ

So the Hilton name will not be lost. At least not for a long time. The timeshares making up the HGV Club timeshare resorts will continue on and likely keep growing as they have over the last few years with several key acquisitions.

Hilton Sea World Orlando

What does that do to the value of what timeshare owners have in their Hilton Grand Vacation Club timeshare? It is hard to tell. For the time being it doesn’t mean anything. The obvious questions will remain to be “Will our fees go up?”, “Will the service be better/worse?”, and “Will my choices improve?”.

For a while now the timeshare portion of Hilton Worldwide has been doing better than the hotels. So their ability to stand alone is well established. Similarly, Marriott has managed to do well on their own with their timeshare separated from the hotel part of the company.

For now not much will change. But there will be changes that the timeshare owners will notice. We will just have to wait and see what those changes are!

As Marriott Vacation Club continues to grow, they just added the Edgewater Hotel in South Beach, Florida to their inventory. The hotel built in the 1930’s will be undergoing a facelift after being purchased for $23.5 million. It offers 49 suites and will add a key spot for Marriott’s vacation choices for their Vacation Club members.

The new name for the resort will be Marriott Vacation Club South Beach. It is located not only close the the beach but it is a mile from the Miami Beach Convention Center and within a mile of Lincoln Road’s shops and dining.

And according to the CEO of Marriott Vacations Worldwide, “This dynamic new destination will also result in the establishment of another new sales gallery, continuing our strategy of growing our sales distribution centers.” In other words, Marriott will have a sales center established there.

The new Marriott’s Vacation Club South Beach will be a superb addition to the Marriott family of timeshare resorts.
