Say what?! You can finance a timeshare? Most people might not expect to easily get financing on a timeshare, but this is actually a misconception. You might receive advice that you shouldn’t purchase any vacation ownership unless you can pay for it in full, but if we were to take a step back and ask how many other assets we finance to have a better quality of life, you’d need more than two hands!

Posted by Ryan Pittman on Feb 10, 2015 2:49:00 PM
