Timeshares For Sale
Timeshares for sale on the resale market undoubtedly provide the best value for money, due to the differences between the way the product is marketed by the developer compared to how sales are made on the secondary market by existing owners.
Similar to the way cars are valued during the purchase cycle, timeshares for sale at the resort carry the marketing costs and sales commissions that are included to cover the overhead for the initial sale. Once a new purchase is closed, the timeshare loses value because of those costs and commissions being removed from the value of the actual product. In most cases, this can add up to 50-60 percent of the initial sale price.
The good news for consumers looking to buy timeshares on the resale market is that the discounts are amazing and can provide you with the best deals possible – regardless of the location or brand of the resort.

As a buyer in search of a timeshare, there are several factors to consider:
- Size of Your Traveling Party. The number of people you normally travel with will determine the size and number of bedrooms needed. This not only affects the purchase price of a fixed week timeshare unit but may also require a greater number of points since larger units will require more points to reserve. One advantage of a points program is that you may always downsize your reservations in years you may have smaller traveling parties – with the surplus points to be used for other travel products.
- Preferred Locations. Typically, people decide where they want to go before deciding where they want to stay. Determine your favorite destination first, and then begin looking for resorts that match your criteria, such as beachfront or onsite theme park locations.
- Resort Preferences. In some cases, points programs such as the Disney Vacation Club offer timeshares for sale that are deeded to a specific resort. This can affect the price since the resorts in higher demand areas can command a higher price or, in the case of DVC, a higher point threshold in order to stay at a resort. Also, resort amenities differ so you will want to check the amenities and activities on offer to make sure they align with your vacation needs. For example, families with children may want to decide on a resort with an extensive Kid’s Club program; golfers want to stay where there is easy access to top courses. Do you want a great Spa experience? These choices can make your decision on a resort much easier.
