Bluegreen does not have a buy back program so your best option would be to try and sell your Bluegreen timeshare. You can try contacting them directly but they’ll refer you to a third-party resale provider if they don’t try to upsell you into a different program.
You have a few options if your plan is to just get out of a Bluegreen timeshare. The best option is to sell it since that will give you some money for your ownership. If you put it up for sale, you basically have two options – either using a timeshare resale advertising company such as us or a timeshare brokerage firm.
With an advertising company, you’ll be provided an ad and the ability to manage your account and handle the negotiation yourself. With a brokerage company, you’ll be assigned an agent to handle the process for you, but you’ll pay a higher commission after the sale.
You can also try contacting Bluegreen to see if they will take back your timeshare. Bluegreen discusses these requests on a case-by-case basis and these situations are usually in cases of financial distress. These programs are designed for long-term owners and criteria must be met such as ownership being free of any mortgages or liens and all annual fees paid up. There are no guarantees that they will take your ownership back and often it depends on whether they have a need for your ownership to resell through their sales team.
One option you want to avoid is using the self-professed timeshare exit companies. These companies charge owners upwards of $5,000 to supposedly get owners out of their ownership. Remember that, unlike a sale, you’ll get no money in return and the authority to relinquish ownership is with Bluegreen, not a third-party exit company. Exit companies would only do what you could as an owner – contact Bluegreen as we stated earlier. Plus, several of these companies have run into legal trouble for alleged fraudulent activities as well as being investigated by state authorities such as the Washington Attorney General.
There are a couple of options to sell your Bluegreen timeshare points. One is through an online advertising company and another is through a timeshare broker.
In the case of selling through an advertising company, you would be given a full page ad and an online account to manage your ad and adjust your information as needed. Include the specific details about your ownership and the benefits of ownership – all of the things that made you want to buy in the first place. Photos are always a good idea as well.
You’ll handle the negotiation as you field offers from consumers and close the deal. It’s an online process that is anonymous, so no personal information is exchanged unless you decide to provide it. Once you agree on a price, you can take the conversation offline, complete the contract and select a closing company to complete the process.
If you choose to use a timeshare broker to sell Bluegreen timeshare points, the process will be conducted similar to a traditional real estate process. An agent will be assigned to your account and negotiate on your behalf. Keep in mind that these services can end up costing you as much as $1,500 or 15 percent of the sale price once the deal is closed, so this can end up costing you more than an advertising fee.
Also – be aware of the “buyer waiting” pitch if you decide to sell. You may be contacted by timeshare resale companies claiming that they have a buyer waiting to purchase your ownership and all you have to do is pay a transaction fee or processing fee. These are most often scam pitches so you’ll want to avoid these companies.
If you are feeling frustrated with your ownership and wonder whether you should stop paying your Bluegreen timeshare payments, you’ll want to reconsider. Selling is always a better option since delinquent payments can have a significant impact on your credit score.
There are generally two types of payments. One is the mortgage payment on the original purchase and the other is the annual fee payments that can be maintenance fee or club dues.
With the mortgage payments, this is an agreement between you and your lender. Most likely this is an unsecured loan so it could function like a credit card balance. Stop paying this and your account would likely be handed over to a collection agency before more substantial legal maneuvers are enacted.
For the annual fees, this is between you and Bluegreen. Non-payment would also result in follow up from a collection agency and, if it continues, possible foreclosure on your ownership.
In both instances, your case would be reported to the credit bureaus and have a negative impact on your score. The longer it proceeds, the larger the impact.
Generally, those suggesting that you stop paying your Bluegreen timeshare are timeshare exit or cancellation companies that tend to use this tactic as part of their strategy. However, timeshare companies have been very unforgiving in these instances so it’s not worth the gamble to your credit score.
While this depends on the experience of the individual owner, in general Bluegreen is not a ripoff. The Bluegreen program offers vacations for over 220,000 members across nearly 70 resorts in the U.S. as well as Aruba. A program of this magnitude couldn’t exist if it was a ripoff.
Because it is a points-based program, much of this experience depends on an understanding of the value of the points and how the booking process works. Certain stays at high demand resorts in high season require more points than during low season. Those more popular times may also require an earlier booking window, sometimes 12 months in advance. Some vacationers would rather make last-minute decisions, which can adversely affect booking choices.
A big reason also comes down to cost, which impacts the perceived value for money of a product. That’s why resales are so important to consider for buyers. New sales at the resorts can average as much as $23,000 according to the American Resort Development Association. In these sale prices are marketing and sales commissions which can be as high as 60 percent of the new sale price. With timeshare resales you don’t have those costs since you’re purchasing from an existing owner.
The lower resale prices mean big savings for resale buyers, which usually translates to a lower frustration level when using the product if they have to adjust their plans for booking their vacation weeks.
