Have you ever been approached by someone with timeshares for sale? Or, have you read an ad looking for someone to buy one?
Oftentimes, timeshare salespeople play hard ball -- they woo you in initial meetings, give you "free" incentives such as gift cards or food, and then offer you a deal.
You might be attracted to the thought of having a resort-style membership available to you any time of the year. You and your family might be looking forward to long weeks at the beach in a timeshare or a place to escape to for long weekends.
Or, you may even feel pressured by the woo-tactics used by the salespeople, making you lean toward a decision you haven't fully thought through.
Should you buy into a timeshare that's for sale? The answer might surprise you.
Timeshares for Sale -- Why You Should Say No
Some people don't know how to say no to these ads or pitches. Many people aren't even aware that timeshares for sale usually aren't good deals.
There are multiple reasons why timeshares aren't a good investment; not only will you not actually own this property, but you'll also be susceptible to scams and hidden fees.
Here are five reasons why you should say no to timeshares for sale:
1. You Lose Money on Them
Wouldn't you love to have your money work smarter, not harder? That's the idea that many people are thinking when they make investments -- spend the money now and make more in return.
Many people think that timeshares are an investment. However, they aren't. Investments are buy-ins where you can expect a return in the future; timeshares don't promise this at all. In fact, they do the opposite!
Timeshares lose money. Once someone buys one, the value of it instantly plummets -- meaning it'll be nearly impossible to recover the initial costs, let alone profit off of it.
Buying into a timeshare means you are buying a property that you'll be dumping money into for no reason. In the short run, it may seem like a good idea to buy into timeshares for sale -- but in the long run, you'll see how you did nothing but waste your money on a property you didn't even fully own.
2. Hidden Fees in the Small Print
The property of your dreams can possible, especially with financial assistance for a down payment or to help make monthly payments.
When people can't pay for their timeshare up front, they oftentimes take out a mortgage to cover the costs. However, this isn't the only payments they'll be making.
Timeshares are notorious for having fees in the small print that are often not talked about during sales pitches. These fees can vary from property taxes, maintenance fees, insurance payments and even utilities. The average annual maintenance fee for a timeshare is $660 -- and that's to maintain a property that you probably only spend one to two weeks per year on the inside.
When adding up all of these fees, you will certainly end up paying more than you initially thought you were.
3. Hard to Schedule Time
If you and your family regularly vacation throughout the year, having consistent housing could be a dream. What's better than knowing exactly where you'll be staying each summer?
Contrary to what a salesperson may tell you, it's actually surprisingly difficult to schedule time for you and your family at a timeshare.
There are often many blackout dates included in your timeshare agreement . Aside from that, you may get locked into having your time at the location for the same one or two weeks every year.
This lack of flexibility can be quite frustrating -- if you can't go at the times available, then you paid for an entire year when you didn't even use the property. Talk about a loss!
4. Difficult to Rent Them Out
If you can't schedule your timeshare one year, considering renting it out could seem like the perfect solution.
However, it's oftentimes difficult to find someone willing to rent these properties out.
People are often wary of renting out timeshares -- they know they aren't good investments and worry about the extra fees that may be tacked on to their rent. If you were counting on someone temporarily taking it over for a year, you might want to reconsider.
Additionally, some timeshare agreements prohibit renting the spaces out to people who aren't on the agreement for it. You may think of risking it by renting it out to friends you know "under the table," but if you were caught, you could face hefty fines as a result.
5. Resell Difficulty and Scams
If you've fallen behind on your timeshare payments you may already be thinking of selling it for relief.
However, once you purchase a timeshare, it's incredibly difficult to get rid of it. Timeshares lose value after purchase, making buyers wary and reluctant in taking them off your hands.
Because of this, scammers have developed ways to take advantage of sellers looking to get out of the market. These scammers will promise to sell your timeshare in no time -- but will require you to pay hefty fees up front. They end up taking your money without selling it -- and you are left thousands of dollars in the hole and still stuck with your timeshare.
Considering the difficulty of reselling these properties, it's wise to not purchase one in the first place. Should anything happen and you fall behind on your mortgage payments, you can fall into foreclosure. This will affect your credit score and ability to get loans in the future -- which will make future housing purchases incredibly difficult.
Conclusion
Overall, timeshares for sale are becoming a thing of the past. Unless you and your family want to vacation on the same week every year, it may be better to walk away from the lengthy sales pitch or to ignore the ad.
Instead, consider planning vacations in advance -- it offers more flexibility, spontaneity and could save you money in the long run.

Overall, just say no to timeshares -- you'll thank yourself later.

Has your dream vacation property become a nightmare? Unfortunately, many nowadays find themselves with a timeshare property they can't afford.
Perhaps you bought it during better economic times. Maybe you no longer have the circumstances or desire to vacation in the same place every year. Or maybe you received the property through inheritance and never wanted it to begin with.
Whichever situation you find yourself in, you're now wondering how to offload the timeshare without losing any more money.
Read on to learn more about timeshare donation and resale options.
What Are My Options?
Many of the 7.9% of Americans who own a timeshare property are happy with their investment. Others, for various reasons, need to let theirs go.
If you fall into that category, what can you do? Here are the three most common solutions:
Timeshare resale. If your timeshare is in a highly desirable location, you may be able to resell it. However, since new timeshares are so readily available, there aren't too many people in the market for a used timeshare.
Timeshare donation. If you're unable to sell your timeshare, you may be able to donate it to charity. Alternately, you could gift it to a friend or family member who agrees to take over the maintenance fees.
Timeshare cancellation. If you can't sell it and don't want to donate it, a legitimate timeshare cancellation company may be able to legally free you of your timeshare.
Unfortunately, letting go of a timeshare almost always results in financial loss.
Contrary to what they told you at the timeshare presentation, most of these properties do not hold their value or gain equity. Some are worth only a fraction of what the buyer paid for them - perhaps less than the annual maintenance bills!
For this reason, the IRS classifies all timeshares as "worthless investments."
This doesn't mean your situation is hopeless. You just need to be realistic about what your timeshare is worth. It's also important to understand that you will probably not recoup some (or even most) of your investment.
Beware of Scams
Whether you're considering timeshare donation, resale, or cancellation, you need to be very careful of scams.
Sadly, many companies out there know how desperate you are to sell your timeshare. They know that the property is a financial drain. They know you're eager to get rid of it.
These scam companies often make big promises, offering to take your property off your hands for an upfront fee. In most cases, once they have your money you'll never hear from them again.
Then you're not only out the fee you paid, but you're still stuck with the timeshare.
Some companies take financial fraud one step further. They buy up timeshare properties and put them into a "shell" company created with the sole intention of filing bankruptcy.
How do you know if the company you're considering working with is legitimate? Here are a few red flags to watch out for:
Asking for large upfront fees
Unsolicited contact
Promises of profit
Promises of "eager buyers" waiting
No matter which route you choose to take with your timeshare, research the company carefully to ensure it's legitimate!
Pros and Cons of Timeshare Donation
If you do manage to find a legitimate timeshare donation company, there are a few things you should know before you proceed.
Some timeshare donation companies try to tell you that your entire donation is tax-deductible. The idea of a big tax break is appealing, which is why many dive in without second thought.
Let's get something clear, though. On the off-chance that yours is one of the very few properties that held or increased its value, you could end up with a decent tax write-off.
However, for the vast majority of timeshare holders, your property likely decreased in value. And no matter how much you paid for it, the IRS will only allow you to write off the current fair market value of the property.
Let's say you paid $25,000 for your beach bungalow in Mexico. Over the past few years, the market value plummeted and your timeshare is now worth only $2,500.
If you give this property away through timeshare donation, the price you originally paid for it is irrelevant. In this instance, your total allowable tax deduction would be the current market value of $2,500.
These numbers, sad to say, are still on the generous side. One company reports that many donated timeshare properties sell for as little as $50 .
The same company also noted that the average timeshare donation only generates about $400 to charities. If you truly care about philanthropy, you're better off sending a check to the charity of your choice.
Here are a few other facts worth noting:
Companies may employ their own property assessors to inflate the value of your property for tax purposes. This could haunt you down the road in the form of an IRS audit and hefty fines.
If your timeshare is worth very little, you may actually have to pay the company to take it from you.
Some companies won't consider timeshares that still have a mortgage or are behind on maintenance fees. They'll only take properties that are free and clear.
As you can see, there are many important factors to weigh when considering timeshare donation.
Final Thoughts
So, what are the pros and cons of timeshare donation? It's true that a legitimate company may be able to take your timeshare off your hands.
However, it will likely cost you a few thousand dollars in transfer fees. And regardless of what the company claims, you shouldn't count on a huge tax write-off for your donation.
If you're looking for an option with less risk, you may want to consider timeshare cancellation. At PMG, we're an attorney-backed agency that uses the power of the law to get you out of your timeshare contract.
