Marriott Timeshare Resale
The Marriott name is synonymous with quality hotel and resort accommodation, and a Marriott timeshare resale is a fabulous way to experience their renowned hospitality at a discounted resale rate.
Since 1984, Marriott has been an industry leader in the timeshare marketplace. Starting with their first vacation ownership resort on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, Marriott has now expanded to a resort network of nearly 70 resorts in the U.S. and overseas. Just about every type of vacation imaginable can be experienced through a Marriott timeshare, and the resale market is where you’ll get the best possible price to secure years of amazing vacations.
An Incredible Choice of Locations
Whether it is a beach destination, hitting the ski slopes or a bit of urban renewal, Marriott has you covered. Lounge on the legendary beaches of South Florida, or try the Florida Gulf Coast for a change of pace. Maybe it is a Hawaiian escape to Maui you are looking for? The ski slopes of Aspen, Breckenridge or Lake Tahoe are calling, as is Park City.
The casinos of Las Vegas are always a hit, as are the more family-friendly destinations of Branson and Williamsburg. Want to hit the links? Myrtle Beach is waiting. Of course we need to mention the theme park capital of the world, Orlando. There are several Marriott Vacation Club resorts near the Central Florida parks just waiting for you to settle into with a timeshare resale.
Urban destinations open up chic options such as San Francisco, Miami, Boston and New York City. For metropolitan choices you may not have considered with a timeshare resale, San Diego and Washington, D.C. are now available through the Marriott network.
For some international flavor, some of Marriott’s best spots are in amazing places such as Aruba, Bali, the Gold Coast of Australia and Spain’s famous Costa del Sol region.
Looking to Buy?
Buying a Marriott timeshare resale is the best way to save money over buying at the resort, primarily because of the way the product was, and is, sold at the resort. Marriott spends a considerable amount of resources just to get people onto their properties. Once there, those vacationers tour the resort and get the hard sell put on them to buy timeshare products. Marketing and sales costs and commissions are recouped by the company through the new sale prices – upwards of 50-60% of the cost of buying at the resort.
These marketing overheads have been an established part of the process regardless of whether Marriott sold fixed weeks or, as they do now, sell points packages. The resale market removes that considerable cost, giving the buyer a more realistic starting point for the cost of a resale timeshare.
All About the Accommodation
Probably the biggest reason vacationers look to buy Marriott timeshare is because of the amazing accommodation. For today’s multi-generational families, larger units with separate bedrooms and amenities like full kitchens are essential for a satisfying vacation experience. The days of the family all climbing on the bed to eat pizza in a cramped hotel room are over. Nowadays, these units are more like vacation condos that act as a true home base for your vacation experiences.
Buyers will want to make sure they understand the different products that come under the Marriott timeshare umbrella. We’ll discuss this in more detail further in the article.
Selling a Marriott Timeshare Resale
Marriott owners who are looking to sell their timeshare are in an advantageous position due to the popularity of the brand and the global reach of the program. However, there are a few things to consider when choosing a company to work with to sell:
- Marketing Strategies – how does the company market timeshares?
- Support Services – what is the customer service support you receive?
- Results – do they get results that they can verify?
Fortunately, at BuyaTimeshare.com we have developed a multi-layered marketing strategy encompassing search engine optimization and search engine marketing techniques designed to attract buyers to our web platform. Over one million visitors come to our platform every year looking for deals, and our customer service team is second to none with 70 hours per week of available support.

Weeks vs Points
For most of the company’s existence, Marriott sold specific week products, either fixed or floating weeks, which secured the owner’s vacation at a specific resort at the time of year they desired. In 2011, the company transitioned to selling a points-based product that allowed the buyer more flexibility to vacation within the network of Marriott timeshare resorts.
Both of these products have their advantages and are available as resales, but it may not be obvious at first glance which product is being promoted, so you will want to ask questions during the negotiation process. Ask whether points being advertised are Destination points or have they been overlaid onto a fixed week.
Other questions come up regarding the BonVoy program and how that is different from timeshare points or Destination points. That’s easy – the BonVoy program acts as the hospitality loyalty program for Marriott, similar to the way every other hotel chain has their loyalty program. These are free and acquired through hotel stays and other means, whereas overlaid timeshare points and Destination points are purchased for use within the Marriott timeshare resort network.
