Timeshares

What are timeshares? How do you use them? How much do they cost? Should I purchase a timeshare? These are some of the questions consumers are asking themselves everyday when they see a discount vacation being offered with a 90-minute timeshare presentation included with the trip.

“What are timeshares?” Wikipedia defines a timeshare as follows:” A timeshare is a property with a particular form of ownership or use rights. These properties are typically resort condominium units, in which multiple parties hold rights to use the property, and each sharer is allotted a period of time (typically one week, and almost always the same time every year) in which they may use the property. Units may be on a partial ownership, lease, or “right to use” basis, in which the sharer holds no claim to ownership of the property.”

“How to use a timeshare?” There is no easy answer to this question. Timeshares have evolved in the past ten years and there are many types of ownerships. There are every year timeshares, every other year, and even tri-annual usage. You have exchange companies that you can use if you are a member (for additional fees of course) and then there are points programs, weekend programs, and clubs.

“How much do timeshares cost?” This is another question that has a great number of variables. Some of the clubs cost just a few thousand dollars and timeshare that are hundreds of thousands of dollars for multiple week programs.

The last but most important question is: “Should I purchase a timeshare?” This is the easiest answer of them all…ABSOLUTELY NOT!! You can find discount vacation packages that will allow you to travel for a fraction of the cost of owning a timeshare. Plus you will be able to travel when and where you want, to popular destinations, which you will find difficult to do with a timeshare. For instance if you own a timeshare and want to exchange it to go to NYC, there is only one property there and it is never available, but you can get online and get hundreds of accommodations all over the city for inexpensive rates. This is just one of many examples of the downside of owning a timeshare.

Timeshares

In today’s economy buying a timeshare is one of the worst financial decisions a consumer can make. Timeshares have no real value. The only value they have is the vacation experience that the buyer receives if they are able to actually book their vacation. Contrary to what the buyer is told at the time of purchase, the timeshare is not an investment, it has no resale value, and the company is not going to buy it back.

A lot of consumers find out these facts shortly after their purchase, but do not know what they can do about it. The truth is, on their own; there really is not much that can be done. The consumer needs the help of a professional consumer advocacy group like Timeshare-Answers.

The first step is calling for an initial consultation to determine if they have fallen victim to a timeshare scam, fraud, or simply the facts have been misrepresented at the time of sale. All of these are grounds to cancel the contract, and possibly recover any money that has been spent.
