The first rule of any large buying decision is to determine what will give the best value for the money. So the decision to sell or buy timeshare has the same concern: what will give me the best value? If you want to buy Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club Hawaii timeshare leave your checkbook at home when you first visit the resort. Otherwise you will find yourself paying far more than you should if you buy at the resort. The hardest thing to do is to walk away when someone offers you what sounds like “the best deal if you buy NOW!”. The reality is that the best deal is to buy from someone who owns the timeshare condo you want without the pressure of on site sales people. So how do I go about finding someone who wants to sell their Marriott timeshare?
The Marriott’s Maui Ocean Club may offer to sell you a “product” that was previously owned by someone else, but will likely offer no serious discounts. A timeshare resales broker is equipped to find you the timeshare you want, negotiate the price, and follow through with the closing: Significant savings of thousands of dollars with the same timeshare deed. The only thing that would not transfer would be their Honored Guest Awards.
Honored Guest Awards work like this: you give up your week every other year and receive points in exchange. These points may be used to discount car rentals, airfare, and hotels. And no, you would not be reimbursed the maintenance fee you paid for the week you give back to Marriott (which they would rent out for a hefty rate). So if you can buy a Marriott Maui Ocean Club Hawaii timeshare and save thousands of dollars it is the better deal.
Hawaii timeshare and Marriott timeshare are in demand for good reasons. The quality of a Marriott timeshare is hard to beat and a Hawaii timeshare will be in one of the most sought after locations in the world. In fact, the Hawaii timeshare resort construction pace has sped up recently. NO HOTELS are being built. Timeshare resorts are being built as quickly as the permitting process allows. If you are thinking about owning a piece of paradise in Hawaii, then think timeshare. You won’t even have to make repairs as you would on a second home. Think about it!
As always, buy resale, not retail!
