Is timeshare a good investment?

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?"

    Para nada es una buena inversión, no den su dinero a los tiempos compartidos, por propia experiencia les puedo decir que existen otras formas de vacacionar, los tiempos compartidos nunca es lo que promete, cada año suben las cuotas y suerte con la disponibilidad, ni se embronquen.

    No compren tiempos compartidos, la verdad que es una perdida de dinero porque no los puedes usar , a menos que hagas un upgrade cada 2 meses, mas aparte pagando la cuota de mantenimiento mensual , es una estafa pagar por algo que ni siquiera te dejan usar , en mi caso nunca estaba disponible !

    the answer is no , a timeshare never gonna be a good investment, so in this moment i f you are thinking to buy one, for own experience dont do that, when you want to cancel it is gonna be impossible, even with professional help , timeshares is a very risky business , exist more options to enjoy life, but a timeshare is not a good option , believe me.

    Mi esposo y yo hace unos años adquirimos un tiempo compaartido en mazatlan, para ser exactos en hotel el CID, al principio todo lo que nos ofrecieron fue estupendo , nos regalaron muchas cortesias , desayunos, bufett y teniamos chance de invitar a familiares y amigos a nuestro tiempo compartido , eso fue durante los primeros 6 meses, despues de ese tiempo queriamos volver pero nos decian que no estaba vacante y nos daban opciones que la vd no eran nada agradables para vacacionar, tmb un factor que nos hizo caer en descepcion fue que las cuotas de mantenimiento eran muy elevadas, muy x arriba de las que nos habia dicho anterior mente en la presentacion antes de adquirir nuestro tiempo compartido , a finde cuentas decidimos cancelar nnuestro tiempo compartido pero por razones del contrato no es posible, intentamos traspasarlo y venderlo y hasta la fecha aun nadie lo quiere, estamos desesperados ya que necesitamso desasernos de el , ya que se nos estan acumulando cargos como si lo usaramos frecuentemente, cosa que no es vd , un amigo nos recomendo a esta pagina ,ya nso pusimos en contacto , esperemos y todo salga bien

    I saw them when I was there and also in Cancun. Just like the ones in Vegas, I ignored them. I don’t want to waste any of my travel time looking at timeshares.

  • Carl smithSeptember 23, 2014, 7:26 am

    I just walked away from a presentation and refused to buy in. No question about it they seemed pissed.

  • IsabellaSeptember 12, 2014, 2:37 pm
