HOT 100 Timeshare List Released Just In Time

SellMyTimeshareNow has released its annual HOT 100 list, just in time for Memorial Day and the start of the summer vacation season.

Dover, NH (May 21, 2008) -- SellMyTimeshareNow has just released its HOT 100 list revealing which timeshare resort properties advertised and marketed by them receive the most offers to buy or rent. As gas prices soar, vacationers look for values in timeshare resales and timeshare rentals to help them keep vacation expenses in check. Released just in time for Memorial Day and the start of the summer vacation season, this is the second year the online timeshare resales advertising leader has published the HOT 100 list.

Jason Tremblay, founder of SellMyTimeshareNow says, "People want to spend their hard earned dollars on in-demand timeshare properties, where resort maintenance is excellent, and timeshare exchange or timeshare resale opportunities should remain solid."

This year's HOT 100 list is based on a record number of offers to buy timeshares or rent timeshares placed through the Sell My Timeshare NOW website. These 100 properties attracted a total of 48,532 offers in 2007.

The list indicates consistency among the leaders at the top, with this year's top eight all appearing in last year's top ten. Notably, WorldMark by Wyndham, multi-destination timeshare has jumped from seventh on the previous list, to claim the top spot at number one for this year. New to the top ten are the Manhattan Club and Marriott timeshare's Ko Olina Beach Club in Oahu.

For high-demand destinations, Hawaii timeshares claimed four of the top ten spots. In addition to the Ko Olina Beach Club, the list includes Westin Ka'anapali Ocean Resort Villas, Diamond Resorts Ka'anapali Beach Club and Marriott timeshare's Maui Ocean Club, all in Maui.

The timeshare resort brand that dominated the top ten list was definitely Marriott Timeshare, also known as Marriott Vacation Club. Marriott's Aruba Surf Club, Maui Ocean Club, Newport Coast Villas and Ko Olina Beach Club accounted for the most properties under one timeshare brand.
