Are you ready to sell timeshare you no longer use, but you are unsure where to start?
At BuyaTimeshare.com, we understand it can be challenging to know whom to trust or how to get your timeshare sold. As the timeshare industry in general and the resale industry specifically have become better regulated, fly-by-night companies have been shut down. However, their bad reputations can linger long after they are gone, understandably adding to consumer confusion about the resales process.
Here’s our key tips for choosing a company to help you sell timeshare. Choose an online timeshare resales company that:
- Offers Verified Merchant Services (look for a logo on the reseller’s website).
- Can show evidence of timeshares sold off their website.
- Has a trusted website verified by the Online Business Bureau.
- Holds membership in ARDA, the American Resort Development Association.
- Holds other timeshare industry memberships, such as CRDA, (the Canadian Resort Development Association), C.A.R.E (the Cooperative Association of Resort Exchangers), and the National Timeshare Owners Association.
- Has an active presence in their local Chamber of Commerce.
- And, perhaps most importantly, has a proven history of performance, having been in business longer than 10 years, consistently representing their brand.
Owners Say: Sell My Timeshare Now
The problem of how to sell timeshare has been further aggravated by the fact that for decades resort development companies have enthusiastically sold new timeshares without ever offering an exit strategy to owners. Imagine how crowded you driveway would be if every time you bought a new car you had no way to trade in or resell the one you currently own.
Think about how many people would be shut out of owning a car because they couldn’t buy a new one and no secondary market vehicles were available to buy at discounted prices? This is the problem that has dogged the vacation ownership market. Buying timeshare was easy, but no one provided a way for you to sell timeshare when you wanted out.
The Growth of Online Resales, the Effective Way to Sell Timeshare
If you rely on what you read in the press, you may be discouraged before you even try to sell timeshares as resales. The media suggests that it is impossible to sell timeshare you no longer want to own. But you know what they say about believing everything you read in the paper and how bad news makes the best headlines.
At BuyaTimeshare.com, we have thousands of satisfied former owners who will tell you, yes, you can resell timeshare!
