Many people simply buy timeshares thinking that they would be able to remove some time from their busy schedule and choose vacation. But many finish up avoiding their timeshares at all which is why a well purchased travel club is a better alternative. So they start thinking about selling their timeshares. But if you consider selling a timeshare is as simple as any other real estate property then you are completely wrong. Selling a timeshare is real pain in the neck taking several months to trade. Even when it finally sells, it sells at 40%-50% under the original price. You may believe is it really worth selling your timeshare or is there a better alternative to selling it. The reply is yes, there are alternatives to selling your timeshare. We discuss those well in the paragraphs to follow. (Or look into Primo Vacations)
One of the better alternatives to selling a timeshare is to rent your timeshare instead (Or as a traveler look into VIP Travel Reservations). You can either work this out with your timeshare developer if he can do it. The developers typically have special classifieds for timeshare, it would be a great idea to put an ad in those classifieds as they target people interested in timeshares (i.e. watchout for VIP Travel Scams). You can also look for an actual estate agency specializing in renting timeshares or vacation homes. Most popular travel destinations have agencies that specialize in this like Primo Vacation travel professionals. But remember there can be a fee if you opt to rent your timeshare through an actual estate agency. You can also sell your timeshares on your own by either advertising directly in classifieds or telling your friends, neighbors, relatives and people you work alongside to see if anyone is curious about buying a timeshare. If not, internet is the best situation to conclude where it is possible to put your timeshare for rent. The’re many popular auction sites like eBay which has timeshare rental section on their auction website.
Another alternative to selling your timeshare is timeshare exchange (i.e. VIP Travel South Carolina). Timeshare exchange is growing in popularity with many people facing troubles with fixed schedule. And also lots of people get bored of going to the same place over and over again and they want a change. Timeshare exchange enables them to swap their timeshare unit with similar unit at other timeshare location and at different time. (VIP travel lexington SC) Most timeshare companies have this facility and supply free exchange in the first year and charge a free of charge from there on. But you can also go instantly to a good exchange company and place your unit for exchange. But you have to remember that you are able to trade in exactly similar units only. You can’t sell a one bedroom for a two bedroom. Also you cannot rent the replaced timeshare to someone. You might be charged a fee for this service and you will get a timeshare in exchange dependent on availability.
Last but not the least, in place of selling your timeshares why not donate your timeshares to a charity if you don’t want to for through the irritation of selling, paying huge in advance fee and much more. The donation is a dead ringer for how you donate your cars, boats or stocks. (i.e. VIP travel columbia sc) Donating your timeshares to charity is tax deductible. But be sure to donate it to a right charity organization who can to make use of its full potential. To make full use of this you just need to make a comparison with any potential losses you would take if you sold your timeshare and you will quickly see that donating yours can lead to a nice tax deduction.
