Resort Timeshare Sales Experts
We would like to point out a few things. We believe
these to be the biggest stumbling blocks encountered during timeshare
sales. Read through these points of interest and make note of the areas
which might present a problem to you as a potential owner.
- Be realistic regarding the price you expect
to receive for the vacation property. This might seem harsh
but this is not "typical real estate" and
does not always sell around the price you paid for it. Not all resales
are like this. Some areas will fetch a higher price but generally
be prepared to receive less money than you paid for the unit when
you purchased it.
- Look at other units like yours and find out
how much they are going for. Remember, beat the resort price
and stay competitive with private sellers.
- What type of medium would you like to advertise
across? Select an advertising company that will market your
resale where it is most cost effective. Radio, TV, Newspapers, billboard,
direct mail, or telemarketing all tend to get rather expensive for
a company to maintain and this overhead is passed along to you in
the form of a higher cost for your advertising.
- Set your price negotiable. Don't limit
your offers by setting a FIRM price for your unit.
- Quick Sales stem from aggressive pricing.
If you want to get out from under that unit fast then set your asking
price somewhat lower than the rest of the units for sale.
- Don't take a ridiculous offer. If you're
not in a hurry don't take any ridiculous offers. Hold out for something
reasonably close to what you expect.
- Pass the closing costs to the buyer.
Let the buyer pick up any closing costs associated
with the sale. This is customary in the resale industry.
- Throw the banked weeks in with the sale.
If you have any banked weeks
associated with your timeshare, throw them in with the sale as an
incentive to buy. This usually adds the required value needed for
that quick turnover.
- Try not to sell when you're in a hurry.
The best time to put your resale up for sale is when you have plenty
of time. Don't let pressure ruin an otherwise enjoyable sales experience.
- Be very realistic about what you own.
Remember, this is not traditional real estate. It typically moves
slow. Anyone telling you it moves fast or that they have a buyer waiting
is trying to scam you. There
are no crystal balls and nobody can tell you when your resale is going
to be purchased.
