Timeshare Sales Frequently Asked Questions
If you have questions about selling your timeshare or timeshare sales, you have come to the right place! Read through the following timeshare sales frequently asked questions below and find the answers you need. For more information or to ask a question not listed below, contact us at 1-866-430-4384.
Can I resell my timeshare for the same amount I bought it for?
Most likely, the answer is no. This is because when developers sell timeshares, they include sales incentives, marketing tactics, etc. into their final pricetag for the timeshare. In your case, you will not have these additional fees to pay for, and therefore will not have to add them to your asking price. The amount you advertise your ownership for on the resale market should be the fair market value of the property in order to have it sold quickly.
How do I find out the fair market value of my timeshare?
How much a timeshare is worth depends on a number of things. First, it depends on the location and the week. A week in Colorado in February is going to be worth a lot more than a week in Colorado in August. It also depends on the quality of the resort, the size of the suite or villa, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and many other variables.

What information do I need to have to sell my timeshare?
Collect as much of your original and up-to-date paperwork on your ownership that you can find. This includes:
- General information, such as the resort name, address, location, etc.
- Your deed
- Your last maintenance bill
- Paperwork for your financial agreement/mortgage on your timeshare (if any)
If you’re missing any of this paperwork, our specialists can help you recover the files.
Where should I advertise my timeshare?
This is the perfect opportunity to use TimeshareCalendar.com. We will list your advertisement online to be seen by thousands of potential buyers. Once you have done that, try spreading the word about your listing on Craigslist, social media, or by word of mouth.
How do I avoid scams?
There are a number of strategies to help you avoid timeshare scams as a seller:
- Be suspicious if someone offers to pay you more than your asking price.
- Don’t send money to a buyer. Often you are told to wait until a foreign check clears, and then refund the difference. Usually, the check will bounce and then you will have lost the money that you “refunded”.
- If someone offers to buy your timeshare, and then asks you to buy something in return, walk away quickly!
The best advice is that if you are offered something that seems too good to be true, it probably is!
Can I donate my timeshare?
Yes! If you donate your week, you may qualify for a tax deduction. What most people don’t realize is that in order to donate your timeshare, the charity has to be able to resell it and turn a profit. If your timeshare is only going for a dollar, a charity will not accept it.
