Customer Service FAQ's
Many customers ask questions about our advertising process and so we’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that come to our customer service department.

How do I find my ad on the site?
Locating your advertisement on the BuyaTimeshare.com website has never been easier. By logging into your online account you can view all of your advertisements. Or, view your advertisement by visiting www.buyatimeshare.com and enter your AD number into the search field near the top of the website.
Have I received an offer or any interest on the property?
When an offer is made on your timeshare, you will be contacted via email and will need to respond through your online account. It will then be up to you to accept the offer, refuse the offer, or counter the buyer’s offer. This is why it is imperative that you maintain a current email address with us.
How do I log into my account? It says "account not found".

I received an offer on my ad, what do I do?
If you have received an offer on your advertisement, you will need to access your account in order to respond to the offer - either accepting, declining or countering that offer. If you accept the offer, you will need to create the Purchase and Sales agreement and agree to the sale in writing, then begin the closing process. If you need assistance with this, you can contact our affiliated licensed brokerage Gateway Timeshare Resales (1-877-536-
Who pays for closing and how much is it?
The buyers normally would handle the closing cost of the sale. The cost of closing will vary greatly depending on the resort and the type of timeshare involved. At BuyaTimeshare.com, we work closely with CashOutATimeshare.com, a licensed timeshare broker that specializes in helping buyers and sellers finalize their timeshare transactions. Timeshare closing costs will typically range between $500 and $800, depending on whether you take out title insurance.
How do I reduce the price on the timeshare?
By logging into your online account, you can manage your advertisement(s) quickly and easily. Once logged in, just click on the Advertisements tab, then the Action button for the ad you wish to edit. By clicking on the Action button, you will be able to change any information in your ad.
How can I add pictures to my ad?
Posting pictures to your advertisement is a great way to introduce a buyer or renter to your property. Due to copyright laws, BuyaTimeshare.com cannot allow its customers to directly post potentially unauthorized material. So, if you have taken pictures yourself or own copyright-free pictures that you would like included in your ad, just email the pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your ad number.
What's the average time it takes to sell a timeshare?
As BuyaTimeshare.com is not a real estate broker, we are bound by specific laws that prohibit our company from pricing a timeshare property as well as stating a time at which a timeshare will sell or rent. However, the lower the asking price, the higher your chances are of receiving an offer.
Where can I find other sold timeshares on your site?
In addition to the most recently sold timeshares shown on our homepage, by clicking on the Timeshares Sold link you can view up-to-date information about timeshares sold and offers made to buy and rent timeshares.
How can I increase the activity on my ad?
At BuyaTimeshare.com, we are the leader in timeshare resales and rentals. In addition to our industry-leading marketing platform, we offer a series of additional options that will help to increase activity on your specific resort ad:
- Climb to the top of the list with our Featured Properties program.
- With our SEO Package, you can target specific online search activity to increase the visibility of your ad.
- If you are advertising your timeshare for sale, consider a rental ad as well to capture the “try before you buy” market.
These options are available at an additional cost, but if you choose not to take these options, that’s no problem. Occasionally lowering your asking price is a sure way to increase visibility. This will get your advertisement back to the top of the list and notify those who are looking for a timeshare with your specific criteria through our Timeshare Pulse program.
