Plain and simple: No, timeshares are a purchase and are not a financial or real estate investment. Learn how people are trick into thinking that timeshares are a growing asset. Timeshare is a good investment only if your purpose is to have a place to spend your vacations and not as a financial investment to have a profit.
We received a call a few weeks ago about a recent timeshare purchaser that was invited to a presentation while on vacations and bought a $20,000 USD villa for one week yearly. He asked us is timeshare a good investment?
Timeshares need to be looked up as a purchase and not an investment. Regardless of how timeshares are presented, they don´t perform as well as a house or stock investment. If you look around the resale market for timeshares on websites like EBay, Redweek, or TUGBBS will find that you can buy a timeshare for far less money than what the first owner purchased it for.
This is an answer for your question "is timeshare a good investment?" here we show you a few of the reasons why timeshares are not a strong financial investment are:
- Many timeshares are a right to use, they have an ending period so their value decreases trough time.
- There are maintenance fees, property taxes and other annual costs associated with the purchase of a timeshare.
- Timeshares are not attractive properties and prove of this is that resorts need to offer incentives to attend a timeshare presentation.
An friend´s advice would be to be cautious before making a purchasing decision.
Better yet, don´t buy these apply to you:
- You love going back to the same place over and over again and are flexible as to the time of the year you travel.
- You trust the managers of the property that they´ll perform a great maintenance to your property and your maintenance fees will be well spent.
- You have extra money to spend and don´t mind buying a timeshare for $20,000.00 USD and selling if for a dollar (if lucky).
I have friends who have a timeshare at Mayan Palace and seem to enjoy it. They know their best bet is to go back to their properties and avoid their sales presentations. I asked them recently if they believe it was a good investment for them and reply to me: "it´s paid for, gotta use it. Right?"
