All About Timeshare Resales
Timeshare resales offer great value and give you all the flexibility and variety you need when buying vacation ownership, especially with one of the major branded timeshare developers such as Marriott, Hilton, Disney, Wyndham or Bluegreen. But unlike buying timeshares direct, when you buy on the timeshare resale market, you are buying timeshares at a fraction of the developer’s price!
Think about it—two families enjoy vacations in identical, side-by-side timeshare condos or vacation villas. One family purchased a timeshare for sale from an owner on the timeshare resale market and the other family paid twice or even three times as much at the resort for their vacation ownership. Who do you think is enjoying their holiday more?

Why Buy Timeshare Resales?
For smart-money consumers who are buying timeshare, the logical way to take this step to timeshare ownership is by purchasing by-owner timeshare resales through a timeshare resale company they trust. By owner resale timeshares offer an affordable way to buy a timeshare.
Timeshare development companies, like Disney and Marriott, must mark up the sale of each timeshare to absorb some very expensive marketing costs. Someone has to pay for all those free vacations, theme park tickets, and restaurant vouchers developers give away. That someone is the consumer who buys timeshare directly from the developer.
Even if the developer acquires timeshare resales from existing owners, the developer then marks back up that timeshare price to the same inflated amount they use in selling “new” timeshare. Their high-cost marketing model affords them no other option. Developers cannot sell timeshare resales at a lower price than they are selling the same vacation product as “new” at the property; to do so would put them in competition with themselves.
Timeshare resales are free from the developers’ marketing mark-up, as some owners just want to recoup a portion of the timeshare’s original purchase price. Most sellers are only interested in getting out of their timeshare ownership commitment. And regardless of their motivation to sell, you as a prospective resale buyer are positioned to get a great deal.

Experienced timeshare observers understand that online timeshare resales offer a buyer’s market. Timeshares have been sold since the 1960s, so timeshares were sold for decades before an effective online marketplace emerged in the 2000s.
Many of timeshare’s first buyers have now reached the age where they no longer travel, creating a timeshare resale market full of competitive deals.

How do Resale Timeshares Work?
The timeshare resale market is the best place to buy timeshares for one big reason - to save money.
Savvy buyers understand that sellers put their ownership up for sale online at a discount to get the best price possible based on market demand. The savings can be as much as 50-60 percent compared to what the resorts charge because marketing costs and commissions are built into resort prices – overhead that doesn’t factor into resale prices.
When you buy resale timeshares, you can choose:
- Fixed week ownership, guaranteeing your favorite vacation time and destination.
- Floating week ownership, for the flexibility of changing your plans from vacation to vacation.
- Vacation club membership or points based timeshare, for the greatest variety of options.
- Or, any of a range of hybrid alternatives from vacation clubs, to travel clubs, to fractional ownership.
