If you decide to sell your timeshare you may wonder what the best approach is. In most cases, onsite brokers will yield the highest sale price. Although you should not expect to make a profit, it may be worth looking into. It can be said that most timeshares are desirable, as they are usually built and marketed in a major tourist area. Many times brokers have a resell option, and will have good leads for buyers who have found new units to be out of there price range. No resort wants to have an empty resort as it is not good for business in general. Scrupulous resorts should be willing and waiting to offer resale services for their current owners.
Though they may not make as pretty of a profit on a resale, it guarantees that they will continue to see their dues paid, which leads to a desirable resort. How many people would want to buy at a resort where many units are unused and abandoned? If you are looking to buy you want a decent price at a resort that makes you feel like you’re on vacation, not staying at an abandoned building! Onsite resale teams are aware of this, and want to stay in business if they are an honorable company. One item that may detour owners away is that some will charge a registration fee to resell. This is usually used to weed out the owners who are not serious enough about their desire to sell, and keep their listings under a certain number. Before you go with an outside broker be sure to talk with your home resorts resale team. You may be surprised at what they have to offer!
