Diary of a Timeshare Owner – Read This Before You Buy

According to ARDA the American Resort Development Association Americans purchased $6.3 billion in Timeshare property company in malaysiain 2009. Now, I am a timeshare owner myself so I understand what the attraction was when my wife and I bought it but that was four years ago. My question now is, do people not know about the incredible time share rental deals that are available today? If they did why would they go out and spend in some cases a few thousand or even $50,000 or more on a Timeshare service residence in kl. You also have to consider the maintenance fees and the fact that you have to manage, book, trade or rent your week.

My wife and I are terrible Timeshare owners. By the time we thought about booking our RCI Timeshare the selection was such that the last time we used it we ended up in Chautauqua New York. Nothing against Chautauqua but we should have been more organized and planned ahead. This was the first time share we purchased; we sold it several years later at a loss and then bought another one 10 years later. You think we would have learned but we didn’t and we came up against a very persuasive Timeshare sales person. Sound familiar?

We purchased this one for $10,000 because it offered 4* and 5* Condo Resorts from around the world that just weren’t readily available elsewhere. There was still a user cost of about $250 per week which has gone up a little and you have to book your own airfare. If you forget about the original $10,000 and the annual administration fee it’s a great deal. To date purchasing this Timeshare is the worst investment that we have ever made. The internet is littered with Timeshare taman tar for sale for less than the purchase price so don’t buy in to the fact that it is a good investment.

So what are the options? We still want to travel to luxurious resorts and we still want to save money. We have purchased Condo Resort Weeks from a company that allows us to travel to the same Timeshare Resorts that are available in the Timeshare we own but we can go as often as we like. We have access to one to four bedroom units so we can travel with family and friends and stay in the same unit for one low price. If you want to book a vacation within 60 days of departure the selection isn’t as great but the pricing is fantastic, as little as $100 for a week for a one bedroom unit that sleeps four people. We are considering a vacation to a 5* Mexican Resort and the two bedroom unit will cost us $563 for the week all in. The best price we could find for the same timeshare rental during the period we wanted to travel was $2,000. Our other option was to buy this timeshare property for $36,000. Hold me back!
