Business Management

If you own a vacation timeshare, be very cautious about people offering to help you resell it for a fee. Many of these sales programs are bogus and the company may not be involved in real estate. Timeshare advertising companies only agree to use due diligence to advertise the timeshare week for sale by owner. In most advertising agreements, no mention is made of location, circulation, or how your timeshare is to be marketed.

Most timeshare resellers require an advance "listing" fee. These fees run from $300 to $500. In most cases, the only way to receive a refund is if they sell your timeshare.

If you want to resell your timeshare and are approached by a company offering to help, consider these precautions:

1. Don't agree to anything over the phone.

2. Don't pay any money until you have actually read and understand the company's contract. You can choose a company that charges a fee after the timeshare is sold.

3. If there is a discrepancy in what the contract says and what the salesperson tells you, believe the contract - not the salesperson.

4. Regardless of what the salesperson tells you, do not assume there is a buyer available for your particular property. These companies only advertise properties' availability.

5. Check with other property owners in your development or with real estate agents serving the area where your property is located to determine if any sales have actually occurred through this method.

6. Find out where the company is located and where it does business. Verify with the state licensing board that the company is licensed to sell real estate where your timeshare is located.

7. Check with the BBB, state Attorney General, and local consumer protection agencies in the state where the company is located to find out the company's customer experience record.
