Selling Diamond Resorts Timeshare

Undoubtedly, there may come a time when you’re ready to sell your Diamond timeshare. If you’re here to learn how to sell a timeshare, we can help. We also want to offer up some great tips to get more out of your timeshare before you do decide to part with it.

Sell Diamond Resorts Timeshare

Call Diamond

As an owner with Diamond Resorts, it’s important that you call them first when looking to sell. Developers, like Diamond, care for their owners and want to help them either fall back in love with their ownership, or exit it responsibly. Even if you’ve fallen behind on payments, it’s worth calling Diamond. They may have a relief program in-house or other resources to help you and your family.

Exchange Your Diamond Ownership

If the reason you’re ready to walk away from your timeshare is that you want more freedom, vacation exchange may be the answer. Before you sell Diamond Resorts timeshare, check with Interval International about using their exchange programs. Many owners are satisfied with the opportunities for travel provided by companies like Interval.

How to Cancel Timeshare?

Many owners are curious about how to cancel their timeshares or their timeshare contracts. It’s important to note that timeshares are usually deeded properties or ownerships that are contractual. Just as you can’t cancel a house deed, you are unable to simply cancel a timeshare deed.

Timeshare Exit Teams

If you’ve been searching for ways to exit your timeshare, you’ve probably come across the term “timeshare exit team.” These teams will generally charge a large number of fees to “cancel” your timeshare for you. As we mentioned before, timeshares are not something you can just cancel. If you receive assistance from a timeshare exit team, please be careful. There have been proven scams run by teams who promise owners they can cancel their contracts, resulting in a great loss of money and grief.

How to Exit Your Timeshare (Responsibly)
