Timeshare resales have gained much exposure over the years, through both the media and word of mouth. With the many benefits of buying a timeshare combined with its popularity, vacationers have been buying on the secondary market over buying directly from a resort developer more and more.
Benefits of Buying a Resale
There are many benefits to buying a timeshare resale from an existing owner as opposed to directly from the developer. The number one reason for buying on the resale market is the discounted prices. You can purchase the exact same timeshare as a resale at up to 70% off the retail price from the resort. This means more money in your pocket and a greater value vacation for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
When you buy a timeshare through a resort developer, you will most likely have to sit through a very lengthy, high-pressure sales pitch. Timeshare resales, on the other hand, are primarily sold through online outlets, allowing you to browse at your leisure. As the buyer, you will only be paying the fair price of their timeshare unit.
Another benefit to purchasing a timeshare on the resale market is that, you can afford a more spacious, luxurious vacation for a fraction of the price of a nearby hotel room. Not only can hotel rooms cost a fortune, but they are also small and cramped, with few amenities and features available. With a timeshare ownership, you will retreat to a much more spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed accommodation to fit your standard of living. The long list of amenities and features available through the resort are there for your enjoyment.
Depending on the resort brand or vacation club you choose, there can be certain restrictions for resale buyers. Such restrictions may include use of exchange programs, rewards, and other membership benefits not being allowed to transfer to resale buyers. Higher transfer fees may also apply, depending on the brand. However, due to the amount of money you can save, most buyers still choose the resale route.
