When one decides to get out of his timeshare, selling it is probably the next move. But choosing to sell a timeshare is not only a difficult decision but also a difficult task. However, with proper precautions and correct research, you may be able to successfully sell your timeshare even in difficult markets.
One great option that most owners tend to try is to list the timeshare in a classified advertisement such as local newspaper or an internet classified website. These websites include eBay, Craigslist, INetGiant, WildfireClassifieds, or NikTrades. The advantage of selling your timeshare on your own is that you do not have to pay commissions and fees. In contrast with working it out with a third party vacation property resale companies, you have to pay an upfront and non-refundable fees regardless of whether the unit sells or for how much.
Another option when you want to sell your timeshare is to hire an agent or broker who can advertise and market your vacation property properly. However, just make sure that it is a reputable company that specializes in selling timeshares as scams are very prevalent in the timeshare industry today. This agent or broker should get the proper exposure for your timeshare. Never agree to anything over the phone who offers to sell your timeshare before you have had time to do some research on the company you are dealing with.
However, before you decide to sell your timeshare, it would be wise to find out how much it is worth on the market today. You can easily do this through an appraisal. This appraisal also helps you find out what the resorts are selling similar vacation properties like yours and to help you with adequately pricing your timeshare. When selling your timeshare, you have a number of options available. But with adequate research, you may have a chance at success.
