When discussing timeshare resale, many people often find themselves asking what the best way is to get rid of their timeshare quickly. Since most people trying to sell their timeshare do not have the real estate prowess needed to navigate this complex and unpredictable market, it is often considered to be a learning experience. If you feel like you are struggling to grasp this complicated sales structure, I can help you out a little bit. Just like you, I learned how to sell my timeshare by doing it. I made a lot of mistakes, but I also learned a lot as well.
Some quick tips to help you sell your timeshare fast, efficiently, and afford-ably are:
Do Your Research
One of the easiest ways to ensure your timeshare will sell fast and successfully is to make sure you are working with reputable professionals. This may include title transfer services, closing service, marketing and listing sites, and timeshare resale companies. Less reputable companies will not only hold up the sale of your property, but may also cost you a lot of money.
Get a Second Opinion
Just as if you were selling your home, you want to get second opinions to ensure you are making the right decisions about the sale of your timeshare. Get a second appraisal, look at several companies or listing sites, and consult with professionals about the approach you are taking to make sure you are doing everything possible. The way I was able to successfully sell my timeshare may not be the best option for you.
Once you have decided which way to sell your timeshare is right for you, make sure to follow up to make sure things are going smoothly. Check in with the developer or transfer company if you haven’t heard from them in a while, review the places you have listed your property for sale, and follow up with the resale company to make sure they are doing their job. Staying on top of these things will help you quickly identify any issues quickly and allow the professionals you are working with to know you are very serious about your sale.
Never Pay Upfront Fees
The most efficient way to protect yourself and your property from fraud, as well as a good rule of thumb, is to never pay upfront fees. If a company wants you to pay upfront for their services then it is time to look for a new company to work with. Some fees are normal, but these should never exceed more than $100 and should always be disclosed to you before you make any kind of commitment.
I was able to sell my timeshare fast, safely, and with as little hassle as possible by keeping these things in mind. Timeshare resale has all the potential in the world to be stressful and complicated, but if you take a moment to breathe, use trusted resources, and take your time you will be rid of your burdensome property in no time!
