Determining if your Timeshare is Marketable:

The sad reality is there is virtually no resale value to your timeshare. The majority of times you will get scammed attempting to sell your timeshare.

Consult a Real Estate Agent:

If your timeshare is unique and in an exotic location contact a licensed real estate agent. Make sure that you are dealing with a professional who have the experience in selling timeshares, and it would be better if its someone you or a friend knows personally.

Make Arrangements to List it:

Now that you’re all set to make the sale, get ready to list it. Your real estate agent will know where to list the unit. He/she will add quality photos and a detailed and catchy description that can entice viewers to consider buying your unit.

Give Away for Free:

If you feel that your timeshare unit does not have resale value, you may consider giving it away for nothing. This, at least will free you from its hefty annual maintenance fees. Find a close friend or a family member who is willing to use it. Remember – charities normally do not accept timeshares.

Hire a Timeshare Attorney:

Be cautious when you attempting to sell your timeshare. There are various companies that might tell they have a buyer ready to purchase your unit. They will try to charge you a high fee upfront and then walk away without getting back to you. NEVER EVER pay an upfront fee to anyone who claims they can sell your timeshare. If you do you will fall prey to a scam and lose your money. Your best bet is to consult with a timeshare attorney who may be able to help you get rid of it. Hire someone who is licensed and experienced.
