How To Sell Bluegreen Timeshare
Once you’ve made the choice to sell your Bluegreen points, the next logical step is finding out how to sell Bluegreen timeshare. This is where choosing the right timeshare resale company is essential, since your choice can make the difference between you doing all the work and having a professional handle it for you.
There are basically three ways you can sell timeshare:
- Marketing it Yourself. This is where you can use outlets like social media or some of the online sites like eBay to post your Bluegreen timeshare for sale. But are these really effective? And do you want to really do all the work yourself, finding buyers and negotiating the sale?
- Advertising Companies. If you choose this route, make sure they are dedicated to the timeshare resale marketplace and not just some online garage sale like Craigslist. These companies will also charge advance advertising fees, so you’ll be out of pocket without knowing if your timeshare will sell.
- Licensed Resale Brokers. These are the companies with licensed agents regulated under state real estate law and working on a commission basis. No upfront fees are necessary and agents are paid after the sale is closed, so this is the most risk-free of the options. All marketing, negotiating, handling of paperwork and facilitating with the closing company is handled by the agent. You just say yes and wait for the check to come in.
What to Know About Selling Bluegreen Timeshare Points
Before you put your Bluegreen timeshare points up for sale on the resale market, there are a few things you should think about:
How much is my Bluegreen Timeshare worth?
One of the most difficult aspects of selling a timeshare is determining an asking price. You could search through online listings to see what other sellers are asking, but is that really an accurate way to set your price? Licensed brokerage agents are the only ones, along with Bluegreen and the owners themselves, who are legally able to price Bluegreen timeshares on the resale market. Best to start the conversation with an agent.
How much does it cost to Sell a Timeshare?
This depends on who you choose to work with. Brokers such as Timeshare Broker Associates LLC do not charge upfront fees so putting your Bluegreen timeshare on the market won’t cost you anything. Any costs are paid by commission after the sale and depend on the final sale price.
Where do people Sell Timeshares?
In the majority of cases the buyers are looking online, just like searching for any other kind of travel product. You need to promote your timeshare online to have a chance of finding a buyer. Brokers can create an online listing at no cost to the seller as well as put the word out through a national network of brokers throughout the country. This is often how a timeshare is sold – by brokers matching sellers with buyers.
What do I need to do to Sell my Bluegreen Timeshare?
It is always a good idea to confirm your ownership before starting the sales process, since this will lead to a more streamlined process. Have your original sales document and/or your latest annual fee statement handy when discussing your ownership with an agent. Otherwise, you can contact Bluegreen to confirm your ownership details.
What is the process of Selling a Timeshare?
Unlike most resale operators, brokers handle the entire process, from negotiating the sale to preparing and executing the purchase and sale agreement. All an owner needs to do is agree on the price and sign the paperwork.

Sell Bluegreen Timeshare FAQs
Is it Possible to Sell a Bluegreen Timeshare?
Yes, you can sell a Bluegreen timeshare but owners should understand that the number one area they need to identify is setting an accurate price that will attract buyers. Bluegreen operates differently than many timeshare companies since owners could have their ownership structured in a couple of ways.
Bluegreen is primarily known as a points-based system where owners purchase points that are held in trust. In some instances, Bluegreen issues points against a deeded property, so you may have Bluegreen points but those points could be deeded to a specific resort. When you put your Bluegreen timeshare points on the market to sell, make sure you know the difference since it will impact the closing process.
This is why it is important to get advice from a licensed resale agent, since they can check your documents and, if needed, contact Bluegreen on your behalf to determine exactly what you own and provide an accurate market value for your Bluegreen points.
Does Bluegreen have a Buy Back Program?
Bluegreen does not have a program whereby they pay owners directly to buy back Bluegreen timeshare points. They promote an exit program on their website but there are few details and a request to phone them or fill out a form to speak to the Customer Care team. This is usually when they try to encourage owners to keep their points or restructure their ownership so they can continue participating in the program.
The way you can actually get money for your Bluegreen points is to sell them on the resale market. In some cases, Bluegreen may exercise a right of first refusal, but that requires a seller to have a buyer in place. If Bluegreen exercises their ROFR, the seller would receive money for their points but by that time the owner has already gone through the sales process by finding a buyer.
Working with a licensed timeshare agent can get the process started with no upfront fees paid by the seller. Agents get a commission only after a sale is completed, which is the safest way to sell Bluegreen points.
How Much is Bluegreen Timeshare Worth?
This is the number one question Bluegreen timeshare owners ask, and getting this right is essential to selling Bluegreen points as quickly as possible. Like any product, it has to be priced properly or buyers will just move on to the next listing.
Resale prices are all over the map, basically because there is no MLS listing system for timeshares like there is for traditional residential real estate. Sellers are often left on their own to research existing listings and make an educated guess as to the worth of their timeshare.
The best move sellers can make when wondering how much their Bluegreen timeshare is worth is to contact a licensed timeshare resale agent. These agents are licensed under state real estate law and operate like a traditional real estate agent – researching comps that have been sold and gauging the market. In many states such as Florida, these agents are the only ones legally able to price timeshare products on the resale market, apart from the resort and the owner themselves.
Because there is no cost to consult with an agent, it’s the best first move to identify how much a Bluegreen timeshare is worth and establishing a resale price that will attract buyers.
Is There Any Way To Get Out of a Bluegreen Timeshare?
In some cases it is possible to cancel a Bluegreen vacations timeshare product, but conditions must be met and there is no guarantee that Bluegreen will cancel the timeshare ownership.
Owners should contact Bluegreen directly, but they will need to be mortgage-free on their timeshare points with no liens against the ownership. In addition, all annual fees and maintenance payments must be up to date before they will even consider a cancellation. If they agree to cancel, the owner will receive no money in return and may be asked to pay a transfer fee in order to hand back their timeshare.
This is obviously a personal choice, since some owners may urgently need to cancel their timeshare. But wouldn’t you rather see if it will sell and get some money back from your initial purchase? Discussing your case with a licensed timeshare real estate agent can assess your situation and see if your timeshare will sell – with no upfront costs to the seller.
What Happens if I don't pay Bluegreen Maintenance Fees?
This may sound like a good idea at first, but there are consequences if you don’t pay Bluegreen maintenance fees. Keep in mind that you entered into a contractual agreement to pay annual maintenance fees to Bluegreen when you first bought the timeshare, so they have the option of pursuing you for the payment like a credit card company or any other type of payment plan.
Non-payment could see your account turned over to a collection agency, where the calls could start hitting your phone looking to collect the outstanding fees. This could eventually lead to a hit on your credit and potentially impact your ability to get credit for future purchases, or pay higher interest rates for those purchases.
Your account could also end up in legal proceedings, but this is a rare occurrence since the parties often resolve the situation before it gets that far.
If you are thinking of selling your Bluegreen points, you’ll need to have your maintenance fees paid and up to date or else a possible sale cannot go through. This is a major incentive to keep your account in good standing if you want to eventually get some money back for your timeshare.
