Resale - the Best Option
Now that you can see the advantages to owning a timeshare at Shadow Ridge, the only remaining decision is which unit to buy. That's where BuyaTimeshare.com comes in. With the great deals on offer through the exceptional inventory available on our website, there is significant money to be saved by purchasing directly from an owner advertising their Marriott timeshare for sale on our resale platform.
Of course, you could always go directly to the resort and discuss purchasing a week through Marriott, but because Marriott now sells new products as part of its Marriott Points system, the only way you can purchase a week of timeshare and be guaranteed that week is by purchasing on the resale market. Plus, when you understand that buying directly from the resort incurs an average mark-up of 50% onto the cost of the timeshare, that's thousands of dollars you can save by buying through resale. Resorts add in sales, marketing and commission costs into their price, similar to the way the car industry operates, so buying resale gives you the same vacation accommodation at half the cost.
Make a decision today to pre-pay your vacations at today's prices and set yourself up with years of superb experiences.
