Share Article

Buying a resale timeshare property offers timeshare purchasers many benefits, including getting more vacation for the money.

St-Sauveur, Quebec Who wouldn't look forward to a low cost luxury vacation in a desirable location every year? This is the question asked by timeshare sellers and timeshare resellers every day. The industry has come a long way since its inception some fifty years ago. Today the timeshare concept has become main stream and presents a practical vacation alternative to millions of consumers. It is a particularly useful vacation strategy in challenging economic times like these. With hundreds of thousands of timeshare properties throughout the world and dozens of different timesharing styles available, buying the right timeshare, vacation ownership or destination club membership may be overwhelming for the first time buyer. According to Dean Floreani of Timesharing Style (, a French and English timeshare resource center located in St-Sauveur in the Quebec Laurentians, north of Montreal, "an informed consumer is a wise consumer, especially when purchasing a timeshare vacation property."

Timesharing, also known as or interval or vacation ownership, is a world-wide multi-billion dollar industry. A timeshare investment, unlike fractional ownership, is an investment in vacation lifestyle as opposed to real estate investment. Timeshare buyers receive all of the advantages of a luxury vacation home in most sought after locations, at resorts that generally offer superior facilities at the price of a standard resort hotel accommodation. The average timeshare unit is typically a generous sized condo that is completely equipped with a full kitchen and with one, two or more bedrooms thus providing a home away from home to young families in a safe environment. Timeshare properties are very well maintained and are rated 3 to 5 stars according to their many desirable recreational amenities such as pools, tennis courts and fitness centres. They are generally situated in prime areas of popular beachfront, golf course and ski resort destinations. As well, timeshare owners have the option of exchanging, banking or renting their timeshare weeks, allowing a greater flexibility.

Before making a timeshare purchase there are a number of things to consider. The first and most important decision should be deciding not only where to spend vacation time every year, but whether or to go on vacation every year. After finding the perfect vacation destination, the next step is to find the right timeshare property in that location. Before buying, take some time to research the property and, if possible, talk to other timeshare owners. Seriously considering the secondary timeshare market can help find tremendous value. The fact that resale timeshares can often be purchased from their current owners for much less than a comparable new timeshare is generally due to the fact that most owners who purchased several years ago are willing to sell for the initial amount invested, therefore offering it at yesterday's prices.This has especially been case since the downturn of the economy - prices are extremely reasonable. At this point, using the services of a timeshare professional can be of tremendous benefit, especially for the first time buyer. With so many different types of timeshare available and so many timeshare resort clubs to choose from, a timeshare consultant can be a tremendous help to a person looking for a vacation home by steering them in the right direction while considering their particular vacation needs and budget.

"To get the most out of your vacation dollar, purchasing a resale timeshare is the way to go. Buyers can save thousands of dollars when buying a timeshare at an established vacation club or timeshare resort. With secondary market timeshares, interested buyers can rent from existing owners at established resort properties and witness firsthand how well a prospective timeshare property is run and if it is right for them. Buying used gives purchasers all the benefits of carefree vacation ownership at yesterday's prices," adds Dean Floreani

Timeshare ownership assures an annual vacation at a resort property or at an exchange property in another sought-after location. Purchasing a resale timeshare is a great way to achieve best value in timeshare ownership. For many it is definitely an investment towards a vacation lifestyle worth owning.
