Buying and Selling Timeshare?
A vacation ownership purchase is a significant commitment, not only financially, but also in terms of future vacations. You should be sure that the resort or club in which you purchase an interest will provide many pleasant vacations for years to come and can evolve with your lifestyle. Also, at times, changes in owner lifestyles and personal circumstances result in a desire to sell a timeshare interval.

Here are some important tips to consider when making a purchase:
Buy because you plan to use and because you plan to use the vacation ownership product in the future. Consider your timeshare resales or vacation ownership purchase as an investment in future vacations, not in terms of an investment for financial profit.
Choose a vacation that fits your lifestyle. Think carefully about what you value most in a vacation and travel experience, then explore the wide variety of timeshare resales and vacation ownership products and options available and choose those which best suit your needs.
Visit a timeshare resort on your next vacation. Take a tour of a local resort. While there, talk to existing owners about their ownership experience at the resort. Many resorts offer mini-vacations that provide opportunities to experience the resort first-hand.
Read all documents carefully and understand what type of product you are being offered. Is it a fee simple or right-to-use plan, fixed or floating time, or a vacation club, etc.?
Ask if the resort is an CRDA or ARDA member. Members of CRDA and ARDA agree to follow the ARDA Code of Standards & Ethics and are expected to adhere to the highest standards of quality and service.
Look for signs of good management, such as well-maintained facilities and resort amenities, good housekeeping, and friendly service.
Verify the resort’s affiliation with an exchange company and learn about the resort’s internal exchange policies and member benefits.
If you are purchasing a timeshare resale or vacation ownership primarily to take advantage of the exchange benefit, buy the most desirable unit in the most popular season, or the largest points package you can afford, as this will provide greater exchange flexibility.
Before selling your timeshare, make sure that you have your paperwork in order. The following checklist should help.
•the name, address, and phone number of the resort
•the deed, and the contract or membership agreement which clearly identifies the timeshare you own
•any title insurance information
•any other information to identify clearly your particular interest or membership
•the exchange company affiliation
•the amount and due date of your maintenance fee, and whether it has been paid for the current year
•the amount of real estate taxes (if billed separately), the due date, and whether they have yet been paid for the current year
•the date your timeshare will next become available for use by a new owner or when a new owner can first make a reservation
•whether or not your timeshare is a fixed week and/or unit or requires an advance reservation (a floating or flex-time timeshare)
