Timeshare Buyer FAQ
If you’re interested in buying timeshare resales, you probably have your fair share of questions. Below, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions pertaining to purchasing timeshare on the resale market. Scroll through the sections to find the answers you need, or visit our Buy Timeshare Resales page for more information on how to buy timeshares.
How Do I Make an Offer?
Once you find a timeshare that you’re interested in purchasing, simply use the form on the ad page to submit an offer. Your offer will be sent directly to the owner, so that they can either accept the offer or send a counter offer.
I’ve Noticed Some Resorts are Clubs-Can I Be a Member Through Resale?
Yes. For most vacation clubs, you simply need to own a timeshare to become a member. Once you purchase your resale, responsibility for the timeshare will be transferred to you, along with all the particulars of the former membership.
I Don’t Want to Vacation to the Same Place Each Year-Should I Still Buy?
Contrary to popular belief, owning a timeshare does not mean you are tied down or required to travel to the same destination each year. If your resort is part of a larger vacation club, you may be able to vacation at any resort location within that group. Also, you can exchange your timeshare through Resort Condominiums International (RCI) or Interval International (II) and travel to different locations every year.
How Long Does it Take to Close a Timeshare Sale?
When you purchase a timeshare resale at TimeshareResaleMarket.com, we recommend you use a trusted and experienced timeshare closing service to complete the sale. While you can close on a timeshare resale independently, the process can be incredibly long. When using a professional service, closing typically takes 6 to 10 weeks.
Can I Finance My Timeshare Resale Purchase?
Yes. There are financing options available for timeshare resale purchases. We can recommend a trusted financing organization that offers competitive rates.
What are Maintenance Fees?
Timeshare owners must pay annual dues and maintenance fees to their resort. Maintenance fees usually cover general maintenance costs, property taxes, utility bills, insurance, and more. The amount of the maintenance fees depends upon the details of your vacation ownership.
Why are Timeshare Resales Less Expensive than Resort Prices?
When resorts try to sell timeshares, the costs keep rising. They have to pay for marketing and advertising costs, pay salaries for a team of sales employees, and of course, gather the money for all those free giveaways and promotions. However, on the timeshare resale market, none of that applies. You do not have to attend a sales presentation, and you do not have to overpay for high-quality timeshare units. Realistic prices are set directly by owners, which results in the same quality timeshares being available for up to 60% less than resort or developer prices.
