Seattle, WA (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
RedWeek.com, the largest marketplace for timeshare rentals and resales, hit a new milestone --- two million registered users --- as owners, renters, and buyers connect with each other through RedWeek's easy-to-use search tools and interface.
"Reaching two million users is significant; we've achieved a critical mass in our industry. Both owners and non-owners recognize the value we provide as we continue to increase exposure and expand the RedWeek platform," said Maurice Aubrey, RedWeek's President.
Most recently, RedWeek unveiled a new website redesign aimed, in part, at improving the experience on mobile devices. It's currently available as a fully-working preview site at beta.redweek.com, as the team solicits feedback and suggestions before deploying the new site fully.
Also new is the RedWeek MLS service, mls.redweek.com--- focused on creating a central place for brokers to obtain inventory for the sale and rental of timeshare, vacation ownerships and fractionals --- and RedWeek’s "Full Service" resale product, aimed at providing a complete, turn-key solution for those who prefer not to handle the resale process themselves.
"We’ve worked hard to become the most trusted name in the field," says Aubrey. "We haven’t taken short-cuts; we've stayed true to our original mission of serving the timeshare owner, and we'll continue to do that as we roll-out new services that make it even easier to rent, sell, and buy."
The RedWeek community launched in 2002 with the mission of providing a trusted marketplace for timeshare owners --- too often the target of unscrupulous salespeople and resale scams. Building that trust, over time, has generated solid growth and benefits for timeshare owners. Today, with its unique position as an owner advocate in the timeshare industry, the site attracts nearly half a million unique visitors each month. The community consists of a large --- and growing --- percentage of the roughly eight million timeshare owners in the U.S. and Canada, as well as non-owners who see the benefits and savings potential of renting condo-style resort accommodations directly from owners.
The rental market on RedWeek.com is especially robust today, with accommodations at brand-name resorts often renting for half --- or less --- of their retail prices. Here's a typical example of the savings available: On RedWeek.com, a one-week, two-bedroom, two-bath ocean view villa at Marriott's Maui Ocean Club on Maui, for August 2014, is currently listed for $3,000 a week (or $428 per night). On Marriott's own website, that same villa rents for $687 per night or more --- or a minimum of $4,809 for an entire week (a 38% savings). Just as important as the price advantage, RedWeek.com continues to offer prime-season inventory at world-class resorts long after many resorts' online rental inventory sells out.
