Some timeshare owners think that their purchases are the best investment in future vacations they ever make, but they realize that they are terrible investments when they can no longer afford the payments, or they are never able to go to the destination, and that’s when they decide to get out of the timeshare anyway they can, and sell the timeshare is always the first choice. Read this article and know the truth about timeshare resales.

Some fraudulent timeshare resales companies scam timeshare sellers with the promise that they have a person ready to buy their timeshare, or they assure that they can sell their timeshare easy. 

Tips to avoid being scammed 

There are many resale companies out there. Some are legitimate and some not, so it is important to know the truth about them. The next are the red flags to detect if a timeshare resale company is a scam:

  1. Beware of upfront fees: When a company asks for an upfront fee to sell your timeshare, be sure that this company is a scam. Legitimate companies do not charge you anything upfront for listing timeshare properties.
  2. “Hot” resale market: Be extremely cautious when something sounds too good to be true. Resale companies will tell you that the market for timeshare is “hot” and that there are lots of buyers waiting for your timeshare.
  3. Unsolicited phone calls: “I see you have a timeshare. Do you want to sell it?” This is the common expression used by these companies when they contact you. If you have never contacted that company and they call you first, it is a red flag.
  4. Unrealistic prices: When they offer you to sell your timeshare, they promise to sell it at a high price, even the double that you paid.

How Resales Scam Companies operate

These scammer companies have a very similar way to operate; that’s why it is important to know the truth about them

First of all, they will contact you by phone telling you that you can sell your timeshare for an incredible price, because the resale market is “hot” and there are lots of buyers. Once they convinced you they ask you for money upfront, this is for the closing costs, the sales fees, etc. When you pay them, they call you again and ask you for more money to accomplish the process. Once you pay them again, they disappear, if you try to contact them, you will notice that the phone number is disconnected and they do not answer your emails; the company just ran away with your money and you won’t hear from them never again.

These companies change their names, web pages, phone numbers and emails frequently. This is because once they scam some owners they change their information to scam many more owners.

These companies does not exist, don’t have a building when you can go, they only make contact by phone, and only lasts from 6 months to 1 year before they change their names again to keep scamming people.

Gold Rule: Never trust in any company that asks for money upfront.

If you have a timeshare you don’t want, the best solution is the timeshare cancellation. Once you cancel your timeshare you won’t have any relation to the resort.

    I can't understand anyone paying anything upfront to do with timeshares. I frequently get calls from different firms telling me they've got a buyer for my timeshares and they don't want any money upfront! I listened to the first few callers, but just put the phone down now.

    I have recieved several phone calls to sell my timeshare. This was a foolish thing to do but I parted with the money. I heard nothing until the 2 phone calls last week. Today I recieved a call from them with threatening me with court action if I don't pay the annual subscription. Is this a bluff to get money?

    I own a timeshare at Club Melia in Cozumel, and the truth is that I want to get rid of it. They told me to do that the only way is by timeshare reslaes but I don't want to because I don't trust these scammers. I don't know if you can help me.

    Those who ask for large amounts of money up front to sell timeshare should be avoided at all costs. If a company says they have buyers for your timeshare at high prices say no sale no money.

    Avoid these companies, they are scammers! They use high pressure sales tactics in attempt to get us the elderly, to sell our timeshares! Another one to watch out is "My Timeshare Expert". I just got an email from them and I did a google search and found pretty scary stories of people being overcharged thousands of dollars and very negative reports.
