Common SellMyTimeshareNow Complaints
While this is a common complaint, SellMyTimeshareNow still sees millions of dollars in offers on timeshares advertised on our website each month. In fact, since 2003, we have delivered more than $2.8 Billion in offers to clients advertising their timeshares with us.
Does every offer turn into a sale? Unfortunately, no. But neither do all offers on traditional real estate like single family homes. Oftentimes, homeowners will receive several offers before finding a buyer and negotiating a sale price that is acceptable to both parties. It is also common for homeowners to drop their asking price a few times before finding their buyer; the same is frequently true for owners selling a timeshare resale.
What is important is that our site is very active and the stability of our marketplace (over 10 years in business and billions of dollars in offers processed) proves that there are still people searching for timeshares. When you advertise to the appropriate audience, you're much more likely to sell your timeshare.
Unfortunately, you'll never be the only person trying to sell a particular timeshare. Remember that for your unit alone, there can be as many as 50 other owners — meaning there are thousands of owners at your resort. When you look at the big picture, SellMyTimeshareNow offers a small percentage of ownership at your resort advertised for sale. More importantly, because SellMyTimeshareNow is a timeshare resale marketplace, buyers who come here are actually looking for timeshares. You could advertise your timeshare on a general auction site or somewhere like Craigslist, and you might be the only timeshare advertised there. However, if you are not reaching an audience actually interested in purchasing a timeshare, that exclusivity does you little good. Our site receives more buyers looking to purchase than owners looking to sell. If you price your timeshare competitively, your listing will stand out. Additionally, many buyers search with specific weeks, seasons, and unit sizes in mind, eliminating much of the competition for your specific ownership immediately.
Upfront fees are the most common complaint about SellMyTimeshareNow.com. It's perfectly understandable that you may be concerned about paying for a service up front. What SellMyTimeshareNow charges for is an advertising subscription. We invest our money, time, and staff members to bring buyers and renters to SellMyTimeshareNow.com. Our website receives as many as 10,000 buyers and renters daily from over 218 countries and territories, so you can be confident that your listing will receive maximum exposure to a global market. Once these buyers and renters find the site, our convenient search functionality allows them to find your timeshare easily from any page. We have flexible options for all owners. Also, once a package is selected and you've paid for it, you will not be surprised by any hidden fees during the length of your subscription. Your subscription details will be included in your contract, which you'll be able to read in full before making any payments — this way, you'll know what you are paying for and what is included. SellMyTimeshareNow may even be able to include free rental advertising while you wait for a buyer. This won't interfere with the sale of your timeshare, and you may be able to generate some extra revenue from renting your unit.
SellMyTimeshareNow's Additional Services
During the life of your advertising subscription, our Customer Care advocates will be in constant contact with you. If you ever have a question or concern during the resale process, they are always available to assist you. Depending on the package you select, offers made on your ad will be sent directly to you or fielded by a licensed real estate agent to ensure accuracy and legitimacy before any legitimate offers will then be forwarded directly to you for consideration.
- Our timeshare resale specialists can refer you to timeshare closing services that will handle the transfer and escrow of funds and help you with all necessary paperwork.
- If you opted to work with a licensed real estate agent, they will also ensure the Resort Notification paperwork is completed and submitted to the timeshare resort, absolving the seller from all legal financial responsibility of their timeshare unit.
