Since our only business is timeshare resales we know that the above resale pricing estimates are accurate, so we strongly caution sellers:
If you encounter companies proposing substantially higher prices, or say that they will be in town "making offers" for your timeshare, examine their motive, no matter how impressive the company or sales pitch seems to be.
Is their only motive, like ours, to sell your timeshare?
Could they be trying to make the price enticing enough to extract a NON-REFUNDABLE advance fee from you?
We're confident you will find there is some other motive!
Most typically the motive is to derive a fee to be paid by you in advance of the sale. Don't pay in advance!! Use a licensed real estate broker!
Such fees could include: online classified ad fees, up front listing fees, appraisal fees,
or a $3,500 fee you pay them to take your timeshare.
It is a fact that we sell a high percentage of our listings if they are listed at prices competitive with other sellers.
If you want to be the first person in your resort that we call with a buyer, take time to call us and get some guidance as to pricing. The number one mistake sellers make is to look at our listings and see what they are priced at in order to price their own timeshare.
You ask why is that a mistake? Simple: in spite of our recommendations, sellers always overprice their listing if they haven't talked to us first. They get in a hurry and list them online with no advise.These listings won't sell until the sellers become educated so don't take comfort in the many high prices you will see - but rather, think like a buyer and ask which listing would you buy?
Because the competition for buyers is so severe, we suggest sellers price at their firm lowest acceptable price, because wisely setting a price is different for timeshare than it is for a house:
Unlike timeshare, a house is individually unique and irreplaceable, so the seller commonly starts high, and then plans to come down later if needed.
But since timeshares are in such abundance, Internet buyers simply search for the lowest price and buy it.
The over-priced owner will simply be repeatedly passed-by and never see an offer.
