Timeshares in Cuba

Cuba, the fickle southern neighbor of the United States has been as affected by the global downturn in the economy as the rest of the world. But Cuba has seen more than it’s fairshare of change recently. Fidel Castro stepped aside, and his more democratically-leaning brother Raul took over in 2006. Since 1998, the tiny island has been hit by 16 hurricanes. The United States trade embargo, in place since the 1960’s, has always choked the island’s economy. The price of food is on an irreversible upwards trend. And drought throughout the island has cost the island to lose half of its annual gross domestic product.

Faced with these dangers, Cuba is “updating” its Socialist model, and encouraging private business in ways that haven’t been seen on the island in decades. Foreign investors can now lease state land for 99 years, not limited to 50 as they were before. For the first time since 1959, foreign investment in agriculture has been allowed. And the government is now in discussions with foreign backers to construct 16 golf courses around the island and the sale of leases on houses and timeshares in these areas. With the right marketing, Cuba could become a world-wide tourist hub, worthy of the definition exotic: beautiful, mysterious and alluring.

The Cuban government will cede a quarter of its almost 5 million state workers to the cause of private entrepreneurship. They will encourage the move by not making it illegal to have a private business, and by removing the cap on how much a worker can make in one year. Despite the historically contentious feelings the Cuban state has towards the U.S., all economists agree that Cuba would welcome American tourists and their dollars with open arms. If President Obama wins a second term and laxes travel restrictions that have hindered U.S. visitation of Cuba in the past, it could eventually lead to an end of the U.S. embargo, and socialism as Cubans know it.

Loving Christmas, Hating Timeshares!

I love Christmas! The holiday season is so wonderful! The snow falling on the ground, making everything bright, white and beautiful. The Christmas songs on the radio we all know the words to and sing out loud in the streets. And of course…

But one terrible thing about the holidays is financial ruin. So many people find themselves over-spending in order to make their families happy. They do it so their friends, family and associates can be happy, but then they spend months of the New Year trying to catch up. In some cases, the debt takes years to pay off.

That brings me to point. Few things are as wasteful of money as timeshares, interval-leisure resorts, and the like. Good, hard-working people like ourselves have a beautiful, relaxing vacation in an exotic resort and get caught up in the emotional whirlwind and make a timeshare purpose only to regret it later. There are rising maintenance fees. Uncontrollable, unlimited “Special Assessment” fees. And the promise of an “investment” that in reality will never show a positive financial return.

This is why I blog about TransferSmart. I want people to have real peace of mind, not spend hundreds of thousands over a lifetime because they made an emotional decision to buy a timeshare. TransferSmart offers and IN WRITING guarantee that they will get you out of your timeshare contract. Yes, in writing. Click here and fill out a short form and they will contact you within 24 hours. Let TransferSmart bring real peace to you and your family.

Giving thanks is one of the things I was taught to do since I was a child. Every year when Thanksgiving came around we would have to think about the things we were thankful for and each year we were given an opportunity to voice everything we were grateful for. Since Thanksgiving is next week I have started to think about the things that I am most thankful for. First of all, I am thankful for my new job. Since the economy is so bad these days finding a job is extremely hard and it takes a lot of patience. Second of all, I am thankful for my family and the support they have given me throughout the year. Lastly, the most recent thing I am thankful for is Transfer Smart. At the beginning of this year I was tied to a timeshare that my wife and I had purchased years ago. The timeshare was really expensive and keeping up with the maintenance fees every year started to pull me down financially. Finally a family friend of mine told me about looking into the services of Transfer Smart.

When I called Transfer Smart the representative was very friendly and set me up with a presentation right away. At the presentation I learned about my options and why I should get out of my timeshare . The representative explained further of what was expected of me and what to expect if I signed up for the service. I agreed right away and several months later I was timeshare free. I had finally gotten rid of my annoying timeshare and can now enjoy my vacations without feeling guilty. Now at my family dinner I will be able to tell everyone how grateful I am about everything that I have been through this year.

Having Trouble Trying To Sell Your Timeshare?

You may have read or heard about the timeshare industry being described as a "timeshare trap". In many cases this description is true, for many timeshare owners they were in many ways misled into purchasing their timeshare. Once they learn about all the associated responsibilities and obligations they feel as though they were tricked into purchasing this. And once more, when they try to get out and realize how difficult it is to get rid of a timeshare they feel as though they were not just tricked but trapped into their unwanted timeshare ownership.

Now while this is all too common for timeshare owners it is important to remember that timeshares do provide amazing vacations. For some people who have no problem with the financial obligations tied to timeshare ownership it can be the perfect vacation option. For these people a timeshare is exactly what they need to provide them with unforgettable vacations. So in reality the timeshare vacation option is quite viable and serves a purpose.

But still for the timeshare owners who are not prepared for the cost of ownership it simply does not have the same effect. These owners constantly have to worry about increased maintenance fees and unexpected special assessments. And what is worse is that they probably had no clue that buying a timeshare could cause so much stress.

If you are already stuck in a timeshare contract and you now know what a huge expense it is and has the potential to become you should start figuring out how you will get out. Unfortunately there are not too many ways to viably get out of your timeshare. You may be under the assumption that you easily sell your timeshare, sadly nothing could be further from the truth. Selling a timeshare can be extremely difficult.

The fact is that there is simply no resale market for timeshares. A lot of owners try to go this route of selling their timeshare on the resale market and this usually ends in a huge waste of time and money. And so after falling victim to purchasing a timeshare without knowing just how much it can end up costing they are now in the trap of trying to resell. There are many fraudulent and scam companies that are trying to take advantage of people who are trying to sell their timeshare unit.

What these owners need to focus on is getting out of the financial perpetuity that timeshare ownership entails. These vacationers need to realize that they will be paying their timeshare resort for the rest of their life. Instead of spending time and money trying to sell their timeshares they should look for exit solutions. Some timeshare relief companies offer guaranteed timeshare exit solutions that timeshare owners can use to get out of their timeshare once and for all.
