For some owners, there may come a time when selling their timeshare is something they are considering. If you’re curious about how to sell your Westgate timeshare, we can help. This complete guide can help you decide which is the next best step for you.

What is Westgate Timeshare?

In 1982, Westgate Resorts was founded by David A. Siegel. The brand now has 29 resorts across the United States. Additionally, it is the largest privately-held corporation in Central Florida. The vacation experiences offered by Westgate timeshares traverse snowy mountains and sandy beaches. The Orlando location is an owner-favorite since it is situated right near the Disney and Universal theme parks. What’s more, the Westgate Smoky Mountains resort boasts an indoor/outdoor water park for family fun.

Westgate Owners Have Exchange Options

A great thing about being a Westgate owner is that you are eligible to join the Interval International exchange network to experience more vacations. With Interval International, members can exchange time at their home resort for a vacation at another one. The diverse locations within Westgate’s network also allow members more choices. We recommend contacting your developer to see what options you have for exchange.

If you are a Westgate owner and have already considered exchange as an option and would still like to sell, keep reading for more tips.

The first step you should take when selling your Westgate timeshare is contacting your resort. They will be able to guide you through their recommended selling process and discuss what you own. You should also visit ResponsibleExit.com. This is a website created by the American Resort Development Association and is designed to help Westgate owners exit their timeshare safely.

This is a question you should ask your developer. Additionally, if you have recently purchased your timeshare and have decided you no longer want it, review your contract and give Westgate a call. When a timeshare is purchased, there is a short rescission window where you can cancel your purchase. If the time for this has passed, call Westgate and see what they recommend for you to do.

Avoid Timeshare Exit Team Scams

Many timeshare “exit” teams advertise that they can cancel your timeshare contract for you. Be wary of these promises as many owners have been victims of fraud by such companies. Since a timeshare is most often a deeded property, you should be cautious when someone tells you they can “cancel” it. Especially if you have a mortgage.

When choosing a company to work with, we recommend choosing one who is approved by ARDA. ARDA accredited companies are held to a high standard of quality and integrity in order to protect timeshare owners. At Fidelity Real Estate, we are accredited by ARDA and the BBB for our work in timeshare resales. Our Licensed Real Estate Agents are timeshare resale experts and have helped countless owners sell their timeshares.

How Do I Sell Westgate Timeshare?

Sell Timeshare with FidelityFirst, we work with you to list your timeshare for sale on our online marketplace. When a buyer makes an offer, your agent will give you a call and can help you negotiate pricing and terms. After a contract is drawn up and signed by both parties, the contract will be sent to the resort. The resort has the right of first refusal (ROFR) before the sale proceeds. If the resort accepts the contract, the sale proceeds as usual except the resort assumes the terms of the buyer. If the resort declines the ROFR, the sale proceeds as before with the initial buyer. Our team will recommend a licensed title company to transfer the title out of your name.
