Finding a Timeshare Resale Company

Timeshare Resale CompaniesRecently we received the following message from a distraught timeshare owner trying to get rid of an unwanted timeshare they can no longer pay for:

How Can I Sell My Timeshare?

How to Sell Your Timeshare

So you want to sell a timeshare or timeshare points.  The timeshare market is riddled with companies that make many promises to sell your timeshare, but simply do not deliver.  If you are interested in selling your timeshare, you have a couple of options.  Some people choose to have a company that specializes in timeshare sales to handle everything from the marketing, timeshare sale, deed transfer, and all legalities of the time share sale, while other timeshare owners are comfortable with executing some or all of these steps on their own.  The right timeshare sales option depends on two factors – your individual comfort level/willingness to complete the timeshare sale process, and the amount of money you want to spend to sell your timeshare.
