A: Owning timeshare is a great value proposition—as long as owners are using and enjoying their vacation ownership. If they find their timeshare is no longer convenient to use or no longer fits their lifestyle, then it makes sense to offer that interval or points as a timeshare resale.
Some owners may be looking for a quick resell, which will motivate them to price their timeshare aggressively and competitively. Other owners may be willing to wait longer, seeking a buyer who is willing to pay a higher asking price.
A: Although some publications attempt to create headline news by implying that timeshares do not sell on the resale market, actually, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Each month, thousands of couples and families look online for vacation values by searching phrases such as “timeshare resales,” and “buy timeshare,” or by searching for more specific terms that include the name of a timeshare brand or destination plus the words: timeshare resales. These prospective buyers are proactively looking for secondary market timeshares to purchase.
Understandably, demand will be greater for some timeshares than for others. However, sellers of timeshares at less popular, older, or off-the-beaten path locations, shouldn’t assume they won’t find a buyer. Vacation styles and preferences vary greatly, which means that every day there are buyers searching for a vast range of timeshare venues and features.
A: To sell a timeshare as a resale, owners need to (1.) use the services of a high visibility online timeshare advertising website designed specifically to attract buyers, and (2.) price their timeshare at market value, which is the price at which comparable units or intervals are currently selling.

A: The most helpful paperwork for owners to have at the time they begin advertising to sell a timeshare, are the ownership documents received when the timeshare was originally purchased. These documents typically include the deed, and the original purchase and sales agreement defining the current owner’s terms of ownership. The more specific information sellers include in their online advertising, the more likely they are to attract serious buyers.
In addition to terms of ownership, buyers are interested in the week or weeks owned, number of points, building and unit location, floorplan, view, and the specifics regarding number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and televisions. The standout features of the timeshare unit or resort that give it personal appeal are often the deciding factors in making the sale, so sellers are well advised to include firsthand insights as well as photos to make their ads informative and engaging.
