How to Get Rid of My Timeshare Because I’m Going Broke Paying Maintenance Fees
If you are a timeshare owner, then there’s little doubt you’ve had trouble selling this real estate commodity in recent times; if you’ve tried to sell it at all. Unlike about a decade or so ago, when they were the hottest new thing for families eager to spend vacation time at exclusive resorts for a fraction of the cost from years past; timeshares are no longer in great demand. The changing economy has placed less emphasis on owning such a luxury, leading to a surge of people trying to sell, and considerably less trying to buy. The trick, then, is to find one of those buyers, while also eluding the many scams that have arisen to take advantage of the rush to sell.
Another reason why people like you are so eager to get rid of the timeshares they have, which can actually end up being a good thing for your chances at a sale if you can find the right company to aid you, is that their vacation blocks no longer match up with the original timeshare they purchased. In short; they don’t actually have any problems keeping up with the maintenance payments of their timeshares or other related costs; they just don’t want the particular timeshare they happen to currently have. This represents a pristine opportunity for you to match up with one of these suitors, in the hopes that your interests are aligned: she wants to buy what you want to sell.
The key, then, is to wade through the mess of scammers and unscrupulous companies promising certain a certain sale for upfront fees, only to never hear from them again as your timeshare listing supposedly sits in a database for years, because it isn’t being actively marketed. These types of companies persist exactly because they have already received the money, so why do the work, especially when the potential result is so open-ended – you can never know whether or not your timeshare will sell in a week or in a decade, or never; this uncertainty is what those companies are counting on to keep any inquisitions at bay.
Now that we’ve covered what not to do; perhaps it’s time for you to get some idea of what to do for a successful sale of your timeshare. First and foremost (nothing is more important than the following!), you deserve a company that simply refuses to be paid until the actual service is rendered! For example, Timesharesecrets.com is a company that serves to link up sellers with buyers, and does not get paid for its services until that happens. And because they have a reputable and solid list of clientele, there’s no chance of fraud. A free consultation is your first step to getting rid of your timeshare, followed by the placing of money into an escrow account. Then; because they won’t be paid until they find you a buyer, their agents start sifting through their list of clients until a satisfactory one is found. When you compare this to the only other alternative of making a personal listing on an online site, you see that this option enhances that one, because of the large list of pre-screened clients.
In order to sell your timeshare without being scammed, the only things you really need to keep in mind are to avoid paying listing fees, and avoid companies that make guarantees. It shouldn’t be so difficult to sell a timeshare once you have these tips down; after all, the customers are out there, you just need a reputable company to help you find them.
