It is no secret that many Americans own timeshares. As a matter of fact, property developers have made exponential feats of growth happen over the past few decades. However, when the economic recession strikes, people are bound to be affected. Many Americans have been forced into a position where they feel like they have to get rid of their timeshare. On the other side of the coin, many consumers can afford their timeshare and are simply unhappy with their ownership and want to sell. However, when Americans go to sell they tend to run into a few road blocks.
The first roadblock that Americans tend to encounter when selling timeshares is understanding that they may have to come down in price. This is because of the simple law of supply and demand. As supply of timeshares to Americans rises from growth of developers and people wanted to sell their timeshares, the cost of timeshares goes down. Also, as the financial recession becomes stronger and stronger, more and more Americans are concerned with making ends meet and losing interest in luxury items. This loss of demand also reduces the cost of properties. With that said, most Americans will have to cope with the fact that if they decide to sell their timeshares, they are going to have to take a loss.
Another roadblock that Americans tend to run into when attempting to sell their timeshare is how long the properties generally take to sell. Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming supply of timeshares to consumers and the lowering consumer demand for such a luxury item, it can take years to actually sell a timeshare. However, many consumers cannot afford their properties anymore and need to sell their timeshares fast. I won’t say that selling timeshare is impossible however, for the consumers that decide to try and sell their properties, I will say get ready for a long wait!
The final most common roadblock that Americans must get past when selling their timeshares is the costs involved in the sale. Unfortunately, timeshares aren’t like regular houses. Consumers that want to sell their property and can’t just stick a sign in the window and hope for a call or two. Because timeshares are owned by multiple Americans, there are strict rules involved. With that said, many times, Americans find themselves hiring multiple companies that promise they will be able to sell the timeshare to no avail. Also, people who are selling their property tend to find themselves paying thousands of dollars throughout the time it takes to sell a timeshare in online fees for online listings. In all honesty, selling can sometimes be more expensive than keeping it!
Although selling is extremely difficult in this market, there is a silver lining to the dark cloud. There is an alternative method that thousands of people have used for timeshare relief. It is called timeshare cancellation. Timeshare cancellation is the process of deeding a timeshare back to the developer based on discrepancies in the timeshare contract and sales process. If you are in a position where you strongly desire the liquidation of your timeshare property, I would suggest doing a bit of research on timeshare cancellation!
