How To Sell A Timeshare In Sixty Seconds Or Less

Jul 26, 2008
There really is no guaranteed way to sell your timeshare property in 60 seconds, or at least sell a timeshare property very quickly and feel like you have sold it in sixty seconds or less.

There are so many reasons why people like to sell their timeshares. But we would like to tell you that selling a timeshare property is very different from buying one. It is a lot more difficult to sell than it is to buy. So what are the reasons why people sell their timeshare, among them:

- The realization that the timeshare property is not being used as often as desired

- The desire to invest in something for potential profit

- The desire to have an increase in cash flow

It is more difficult to sell timeshare property because it is not a necessity, unlike a house that you have to put over you head. Timeshares are not real estate properties, they are shares in a real estate property. People buy them for the pure please of staying at five star hotel for the cost of a cheaper hotel.

Resort salespersons that sell timeshare resorts are very quick to tell about how wonderful it is to lap in the luxury if a timeshare resort. It is rare to find anyone who is forthcoming enough to tell you about how difficult it is to re-sell a timeshare.

There are some ways to make selling timeshares an easier task. Here are some of them.

- Offer a realistic price. Timeshares prices vary greatly, but you should offer your timeshare at a price and value that is better than the resorts price. Take note: your potential buyer must see the value of buying a timeshare from you.

- Spread the word. Tell people that you are selling your timeshare property. You can even advertise at niche classified ads. To save yourself the trouble of doing it yourself, you can also get listed with a real estate agent or a realtor. A realtor would typically just take a commission from your timeshare. The only problem is that most realtors would push for high-commission sales instead of your own timeshare. To get the most effective result, you can have your timeshare listed at a listing company. Do your due diligence to find out which listing companies are the most reputable.

- Be on the accepting mode, and close. Be prepared to accept buying offers on your timeshare property. And of course, do not forget to close the deal. If it is your first time to close a timeshare sale, then you better a professional closing company do it for you. It might cost you more if you close the deal yourself.

You will find many timeshare buy and sell companies on the Internet. These companies are already experienced in the fine art of closing timeshare deals. The best of them would feature an online resort directory where potential buyers can take a look at the resort where you have timeshares in. This is a very powerful tool since potential buyers are always looking forward to an ocular inspection before buying.
