Can I sell a timeshare that is not paid off?

You may have reached the point where you’re thinking, “How can I sell my timeshare?” Whether your timeshare has been a wonderful instrument for creating family memories or your budget has been a leak for years, there can be many reasons for Vidanta timeshare cancellation.

Best way of selling a timeshare 

When selling your timeshare, it is advisable to use a real estate agent who specialises in timeshare sales. This is due to the fact that most of the time, selling a timeshare is subject to distinct laws and regulations. Finding a real estate agency that deals in timeshare re-sale is critical.

Timeshares can be tricky to sell, even if you’ve worked with a real estate agent before. However, selling a timeshare may be more difficult if you owe money on it. Especially if you are late on your payments. You should contact your developer or resort for help if this is the situation. They might be able to assist you in catching up on your payments or safely quitting your ownership if you’re falling behind. 

Step1: Go over your contract again.

Get your original contract and any other documentation related to the timeshare out of storage to check what you signed back in the day. Even if you don’t want to sell your product, you’ll need this information.

What are the specifics of the agreement?

Aside from the location (including nation), resort or developer name, size and description (number of bedrooms and bathrooms), and any included amenities, you’ll want to know everything there is to know about the timeshare.

Who is the owner of the property?

Find out if you have a deed or a “right to use” agreement for the land. Timeshare deeds are often retained by resorts or trust companies rather than being delivered directly to the timeshare owner. You’ll want a copy of this deed in your possession.

Step 2: Find Out the Value of Your Timeshare

It is important to have realistic expectations about the value of your timeshare before we go any further. Because timeshares never appreciate, no matter what the initial marketer claimed, you cannot see them as investments.  No matter what happens, don’t expect to recover all of your timeshare’s investment back.  No matter how much money you make, getting rid of those recurrent costs is your greatest hope for a happy ending. 

What’s the status of your mortgage?

In the first place, have you paid off your timeshare? If you’re making payments on a loan, check to see if the timeshare is securing the debt. They’re categorised as “encumbered” and hence nearly hard to sell.

Do you have all of your bills paid on time?

Ensure that all of your monthly fees, including HOA dues, maintenance, and other small but significant expenses, have been paid. It’s unlikely that anyone will give your timeshare a second glance until you bring your spending up to date.

Are there any other timeshares that are similar to yours available?

Look at other timeshares that are currently on the market with the knowledge you gained from your original contract. Try to identify properties that have the same amount of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage as your current residence.

Start with sites like eBay and Craigslist, and then check out the Timeshare Users Group. Consider “sold” listings as well. They’re a better gauge of value than a simple listing (which is often the wishful thinking of what an owner wants to get for their timeshare).

Step 3: Try to Sell Your Timeshare 

We don’t advise you to sell your timeshare on your own. If you’re selling a property like this, you’ll want to hire a professional because the process is complicated and requires not just specialised understanding of the process but also particular access to the market. 

Is the company you’re working with reputable?

If you decide to advertise your timeshare with a business that says it wants to help you sell it, be cautious. Scammers have taken advantage of timeshare owners’ sense of urgency by preying on their fears and anxieties. 

Is the resort willing to accept your timeshare back if you leave?

This is an option if you’re having trouble selling your timeshare. There is no harm in contacting your timeshare resort about your concerns. They have begun an internal procedure of either selling or returning their owners’ timeshares to them without exchanging any money for the timeshares.

However, be careful. Because they are trying to sell your timeshare, many resorts will take advantage of this desperate situation to get you to sign up for a great “upgrade” like additional weeks or points for a different resort complex. 

Step 4: A Timeshare Exit Company should be contacted 

Another option is to work with a timeshare exit business, which we strongly recommend. Company exits differ from public company listings in a number of ways. Unlike real estate agents or brokers, they aren’t in the business of selling or renting out your timeshare. As a result, they try to find legal and ethical ways to get you out of your contract entirely.
