As COVID-19 shuttered businesses across the country over the past few months, you may have started to wonder when you’ll get to use your timeshare again. You might even be wondering, “can I sell my timeshare now?” We’ve got options to help you sell your timeshare.

Options to Sell Your Timeshare Now

Can I Sell My Timeshare Now

Recent events like timeshare resorts reopening and Disney’s plans to reopen show signs that travel may be returning to a new sense of normal.

Our agents have seen timeshares continue to sell during this time. So, selling your timeshare may not be a far stretch, especially with the right help. Whether you should or shouldn’t sell now is totally up to you.

Can I Cancel My Timeshare?

You may have seen an uptick in timeshare cancellation companies sending advertisements to you. We recommend against timeshare exit and cancellation companies. Unfortunately, these companies often don’t deliver on their promises. Timeshares cannot simply be canceled or exited.

Oftentimes, exit companies will ask you to pay a large upfront fee for their services. At the same time, they will have loopholes in their contracts stating that they are (essentially) off the hook if they can’t help you. We do not recommend spending a lot of money in upfront fees for help. With our company, you can list your timeshare for sale with no upfront fees. Don’t lose hopethis proves honest companies do exist.

Call Your Developer

As a first move, we recommend contacting your developer. Through your developer, you might find an in-house solution that works for you. Some developers may even refer you to a legitimate timeshare resale company to sell your ownership. The American Resort Development Association created an entire coalition that supports these programs and others like it.

Developers understand that things change, and are attempting to help their owners find the best way out. Additionally, your developer may be able to recommend vacation exchange opportunities that will make your timeshare worth keeping.

Find A Legitimate Timeshare Resale Company

In your search to get out of your timeshare, you might be curious about who you can trust. We wrote an entire blog on legitimate resale companies. We’ve also taken pride in spotlighting common timeshare scams to keep owners safe.

Additionally, we recommend working with a company that is a member of ARDA. ARDA is the trade association for timeshare and members must meet a strict code of ethics to gain membership. As members, we offer honest solutions to timeshare owners. A few signs of a legitimate company is ARDA membership, good reviews as well as a long presence in business. If you’re ever uncertain about a company, do your research and call your developer. They can point you in the right direction of who to trust.
