Why Timeshares By Owner Listings Can Be Incredible Values
Timeshares by owner listings are a good way to get started with timeshares especially because of the opportunity to save on your initial investment. They are also a great way to add properties to your vacation portfolio. Despite the questionable reputations of some timeshare companies and some controversial practices in the history of the timeshare industry owning a timeshare can be a cost-efficient way of vacationing. And you may find that sellers of timeshares can be highly motivated.
You can find timeshares for sale in a variety of places and venues including advertisements by the owners themselves. Buying from an owner directly involves a bit more risk because often there are fewer levels of protection than are provided by a timeshare or real estate broker. A way to add some safeguards when purchasing a timeshare from an owner is to buy it through a third party that provides some guarantees and assurances. Regardless of which method you use it is recommended that you make part or all of the purchase using a credit card which has the appropriate buyer protection features for additional piece of mind.
The benefits of owning a timeshare in a desirable location is the familiarity and good memories you'll come to have with the unit, facilities, fellow owners and renters, and the local area amenities. If your timeshare week is fixed you'll also have less planning to do when scheduling your time away. And when you take multiple vacations to different places in a year you only need to devote your planning time to the other places that you are not familiar with.
Popular locations of timeshares by owner are those that are nearby or part of major entertainment theme parks that have grown over the last 50 years to be some of the most appealing vacation destinations. Most travelers will recognize one of the best known entertainment complexes as Disney which has entered into the timeshare market through its Disney Resorts program. While you can buy timeshares direct from Disney you will find a robust market in resales, though the value of these has declined because of the fewer rights and options recently afforded to resale buyers than to those who purchased directly.
Timeshares are also popular with real estate investors who have been dealing with a soft conventional property market for years and see opportunities in the vacation real estate sector where the demand has remained constant despite the dip in the rest of the industry. Also those approaching or in retirement may find that buying and selling timeshare units can be financially rewarding and a good way to provide low-cost vacations for themselves.
Listings of timeshares by owners can be found in many places both online and offline in specialty magazines. Online listings provide the additional benefit of the properties being freshly updated saving the frustration of working with outdated listings and pursuing properties that have already been sold or taken off the market. Besides the specialty online timeshare websites other sources include the online auction sites, each having extensive sections devoted to timeshares. Use this information to evaluate the market and get a sense of the values provided by timeshares by owner listings.Jeanine Sproles
