Why We Do What We Do
We started this business model in 2011 mostly out of necessity. As owners of timeshare we needed a service company that would help us understand the process of selling and transferring a timeshare or vacation club in a simple straight forward manner. We searched and searched for a company that would do just that to no avail. It seemed almost impossible to comprehend what they were offering to do, how it worked and what assurances we had that it would work as they said. There had to be a better way! If "buying the darn thing was so simple, why is getting rid of it so difficult" was the million dollar question over and over. So, we partnered up with some real successful timeshare minds to help us gain insight as to how the whole process works. We now use and share this expertise with all of our clients.
What It Is And What It Isn't
Timeshare owners are so very often led to believe that they're making an investment in an asset that will appreciate in value over time. The reason to buy any timeshare or vacation club, is to enjoy nice quality vacations at greater value than standard hotels. The yearly savings should justify the initial cost of buying over time (break-even point). Rarely will you see a timeshare sell for original price or above it. When owners believe that to be true, its normally when the trouble and disappointment begins. We urge owners to be realistic and understand that a timeshare or vacation club is a use and enjoyment product, not an appreciating asset in their portfolio. Use it, enjoy it and if you are done with it, unload it.
The Perpetual Cost Of Ownership Over Time
Deciding to buy a timeshare or vacation club, whether deeded or points ownership can be a major investment in our lives. It's not just the purchase price which currently average around $19,000 USD for one week at a nice resort. There are yearly maintenance dues, which, for the most part are a mandatory annual cost that increases between 2% to 7% annually. Now, you should be getting high value for your investment as far as quality of accommodations and destinations. So the idea is to maximize your use and enjoyment for a period of time until the cost to value ratio no longer makes sense. Timeshare is a great product as long as it is purchased for the proper reasons and without the expectation of monetary gain. There are many formulas that forecast the total cost of ownership for timeshares. Stay informed so you always know where you stand, most of all, know when to let go.
