Selling A Timeshare - what You Should Know.
This is where a listing company will actually charge upfront fee’s to help you
list your timeshare for sale. This is not a popular option, because if you don’t
sell your timeshare you don’t get your money back – however it is a good way to
market your timeshare for sale.
Many timeshare companies nowadays exercise what's called the ROFR Clause or the Right Of First Refusal Clause, that gives the timeshare company the right to deny your right to sell. Typically a company will do this to conserve owners and drive revenue. This eventually brings owners to a point of desperation where they will list their timeshare across the web and pay thousand of dollars in listing cost, only to ultimately be disappointed when the ownership fails to sell.
some owners have bought in at larger acquisition companies that will absorb your timeshare if you agree to pay the transfer cost and buy a contract with their company. Some of these companies are actually gaining a lot of popularity; currently there are very few companies like this, but the most popular is probably Disney Vacations, another popular one is the diamond international properties that allow you to charge free at no extra cost.
