There are a lot of ways you could go about selling your timeshare. But, who do you believe? With all the warnings about timeshare scams and news about the timeshare scam companies in places like Florida, who do you trust?
Let’s get the “How Not To Sell Your Timeshare” methods disposed of first.
If you have looked around on the web for some answers maybe you have seen timeshares for sale on eBay. Now that is a let down. Hundreds of timeshares for sale for pennies on the dollar – lots of them not even selling – and who knows if they even close on the sale once they start making a deal. When it comes to timeshares everything you see on sites like eBay is like a magic show. Just where did all that inventory come from? Do those deals ever really close? Do you really want to sell your timeshare for a dollar?
How about those telephone solicitors calling you to say they have a buyer for your timeshare and all you need to do is send them eight hundred, a thousand, or three thousand dollars? Do like they do on the Matrix – RUN! Companies like that are getting busted weekly and those guys are off to jail.
Okay, run an ad in your local town newspaper. You start fielding calls from buyers who do not know what a timeshare is. They think they can buy a whole ownership condo on the beach for fifteen thousand. Next.
Next comes the “Google” approach. Try it. You’ll get 7.5 million results and tons of ads from faceless, cyber sales sites.
What you need is a person. A person with timeshare sales experience. Preferably with some sort of credentials and an address. Remember that? Sticks and bricks?
What I’m talking about is a Realtor that is also a timeshare resale specialist. Using a Realtor to sell your timeshare will work as long as they know exactly how to deal with the resorts, title companies, and navigate sales across state and international lines. Not many Realtors want to tackle that. Some do.
