Timeshare Resales Pricing:
How to estimate asking prices

Copyright ® Timeshare Resales Worldwide


Types of Timeshare Resorts Determining Resale Price:

  • For a free estimate of value for your timeshare,

    1. TYPICAL: This includes at least 95% of timeshares that can viably be resold. The maximum resale prices average approximately 5% to 25% of the developer new price.
       
    2. SPECIAL: This includes the vacation clubs of Marriott, Hilton, Disney, Hyatt, Westin,Four Seasons Residence Club, and other major name brands where in addition to timeshare benefits, the owner can use credits for other benefits such as airline tickets, or accommodations in the chain's hotels worldwide. These special type of units typically resell for 30% to 40% of the developer new price except for especially high demand locations where they might sell for more.
       
    3. MEXICO RESORTS: For most resorts resale prices in Mexico have plummeted because of the public awareness of crime in Mexico. Also, many Mexico resorts have jacked the transfer fee so high, no-one will buy them. (10% of the original price is common) The cities of Cancun and Cabo San Lucas are highest demand. Another detriment to prices in Mexico is the right to use is usually for a limited number of years.
       
    4. LITTLE OR NO DEMAND:
      There is no demand for studio units (no private bedroom), or for off-season low demand weeks. The honest truth is these are impossible to sell.

      Most important of all don't focus on "what you will get out of it", rather, focus on "what you are getting out of!" There is a substantial financial benefit if you are relieved of ongoing maintenance fees and taxes which quickly accumulate to thousands of dollars which could have been put in the bank instead of thrown away on something you are not using! Even if you net zero on the sale, focus on the thousands of dollars you'll retain over a few years by enjoying NOT having to pay out further ongoing maintenance costs!!
       

    Straight talk for serious sellers

    There are two main categories of misrepresentation common today:
  • Category One Companies which vastly over over estimate realistic resale prices (to entice you to pay their huge ($500 to $3,500 apx.) non-refundable up front fee or online advertising fee)
  • Category Two:So called cancellation/post card companies who invite you to hotel meeting at which they vastly under estimate realistic resale prices (to discourage you and entice you to pay them $3500 appox. to take your valuable timeshare. They charge you to take the timeshare and then go sell it on ebay!

    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 some sort of 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.

    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 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.

    The reason is that in spite of our recommendations, sellers always overprice their listing if they haven't talked to us first and 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.
