Be sure to discuss your options with your family and friends on selling your timeshare. You never know if they may be looking to get one!

Additionally, you could rent your timeshare to your family or friends and have them cover the maintenance fees for the year they want to use it.

7 Steps to Sell Timeshare with Fidelity Real Estate

We can assist you in selling Wyndham timeshare if you are current on your timeshare payments and do not have any outstanding loans. Our process is simple.

  1. Get started by filling out a form on our website or calling one of our agents at 1-800-410-8326 (410-TEAM). One of our licensed real estate agents will give you a free consultation to go over the services we can provide to you.
  2. Then, we will create a listing for your Wyndham timeshare. Should you decide to accept our services, there are zero up-front fees. We will work together to create your Wyndham timeshare listing and set the offer price. This is up to you, but your agent can give you an estimate of what other Wyndham timeshares are selling for at your resort. Throughout this process, you will have direct communication with your agent and we can adjust purchase prices and such accordingly.
  3. Once an offer is made on your listing, we will contact you to go over the details. Fidelity Real Estate agents can facilitate the negotiations for you.
  4. If you decide to accept the offer, we will draft up the contracts of sale for both parties to sign.
  5. Once contracts are written and signed, it’s not over yet! The resort that your timeshare is associated with has the right of first refusal (ROFR), which means they can step in as the buyer. If this happens, the resort will become the buyer of your timeshare and accept the terms of the contract. If the resort refuses the offer, the sale continues with the initial buyer.
  6. Once the ROFR is waived by the resort, we can direct you to a trusted title company who will transfer the title out of your name. The title company will process the title transfer and send the new title and documents to the resort and the county the resort is located in. This can take a little while depending on the title company and the county your resort is located. Be patient, though, because it's almost done!
  7. After the title is transferred out of your name, you should contact the resort (Wyndham in this case) to confirm the membership is out of your name. Do not stop paying your maintenance fees until you confirm with the resort, HOA or mortgage lender that the ownership is no longer under your name. Until this is done, you will still be responsible for paying the maintenance fees.

When all the steps above are completed... you have officially sold your timeshare!
