Q. Why should I purchase a timeshare and how does it work?

A. Usually one week - 7 nights. Timeshares are typically sold in intervals consisting of a seven-night stay.

Q. What is involved in buying a timeshare?
A. Thank you for your interest in purchasing a timeshare resale with Vacation Property Resales, Inc. When an offer is submitted to purchase a timeshare, the offer will be forwarded to a buyer specialist who will review the offer. The buyer specialist will make contact with the buyer by telephone or e-mail and normally within 24 hours of the offer being submitted. This is done to confirm the offer and answer any questions the buyer may have. Once the offer is confirmed, the buyer specialist will then contact the owners of the vacation property to present the offer for their consideration. When a response is received from the owners, the buyer specialist will forward the response directly to the buyer. In the event that the offer has been declined or countered by the owners, the buyer will have the option on how he/she would like to proceed. If the offer is accepted, the closing process will ensue. It is the buyer’s responsibility to pay for all closing costs involved with purchasing a timeshare with Vacation Property Resales, Inc. For more information about the closing process, please refer to our FAQ section “The Closing Process.”

Q. What is involved in the closing process?
A. When an offer has been accepted, the transaction will be handled by Transfer a Timeshare Title. The buyer specialist will send an initial purchase agreement form to the buyer for the buyer's signature and a $ 425.00 deposit to send to the closing company. IT IS THE BUYER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO PAY FOR ALL CLOSING COSTS!!! This fee is approximately $550.00 for most timeshares. Once the initial deposit is received by the closing company, they will perform a full title search and type up a detailed settlement statement which is sent out to both the buyer and seller. The paperwork is signed by both parties and returned to the closing company. The money is held in escrow while the new deed is drawn up and registered with the resort. The funds are disbursed to the original owner and the new deed is sent to the buyer. The entire process takes about 4-5 weeks to complete, assuming both parties act in a timely matter.
