Get Rid of Your Timeshare: Why You Should Do it Now
There is every reason to get rid of your timeshare to avoid having an obligation you can’t fulfill. Here are several reasons you should do it now.
Did you go on one of those amazing free vacations that timeshare companies offer all the time?
Maybe you went planning to not get swept up in the hype. But the deal sounded too amazing to pass up. You couldn’t let it slip away and you ended up buying that amazing timeshare.
Don’t feel bad if this has happened to you. You’re not alone, it has happened to the best of us.
The timeshare may have even been great for the first few years. You may have gotten a few good trips out of it. But now you might be thinking it’s not quite as amazing as you thought.
But, should you go ahead and get rid of it? Isn’t it hard to get out of a timeshare?
It can be difficult, but not if you know what you are doing. Let’s look at a few reasons why you should get rid of your timeshare.
It’s Not What You Expected
It is, all too often, the case with timeshares that it isn’t quite what you expected. Whoever sold you the timeshare promised you one thing and what you got was another.
The problem can be one or more of many things. They may have told you you’d get a luxury property. But once you saw it you felt like the property is only so-so.
They may have promised an easy money maker.
Find renters to take the other weeks and charge them more than your member price. Easy peasy! Later, you find out it is not that easy to find reliable renters.
It is possible even that the timeshare is falling into decline and the company isn’t handling it. Nobody wants to go on vacation where the roof leaks and the hot water only works sometimes.
Broken promises are common in the timeshare industry. They’re so common, in fact, that you’ll find all sorts of info on timeshare scams on Google. Not every timeshare is a scam, but a lot of them are.
Timeshares are notorious for offering you tons of free, amazing stuff. Free vacations, fabulous food, and entries to win a car or a boat are all common tactics.
But timeshares are like a bad date. The company wines and dines you and you think you’re having a great time. But the next morning you realize how outlandish their promises were and how you got taken in.
At least a bad date goes away the next day. The problem with timeshares is that they don’t stop sucking you dry the day after. You have to keep paying your membership fees year after year.
Plus, many companies take it one step further. They convince you that you can’t get rid of a timeshare. You’re locked in.
But there is hope.
You’re Tied to Something You Don’t Want Anymore
Now you don’t want your timeshare anymore. You may have used it a few times, but the novelty has worn off.
Some timeshares tie you into the same location year after year. While you may like the location you’re going to, you want to explore other places too. But you feel guilty spending extra money to go somewhere else.
Vacations are supposed to be fun. You’re supposed to go where you want to go!
Of course, not all timeshares tie you to the same location. Some offer various properties around the world.
But you’ve found that it’s not as easy as it sounds to use them. The best destinations are always full. When you do go, the location of the timeshare is not ideal. The facilities may not be quite what you expected either.
All in all, you don’t want to use your timeshare anymore. But you feel tied to it. Trying to make sure you get your money’s worth out of it year after year. You want to get rid of your timeshare but don’t know how.
Speaking of money, sometimes timeshares can become a heavy financial burden. Your economic situation can change at any time.
Perhaps when you first started the payments were manageable. But now you have a different job, or want to retire, or are watching the maintenance fees go up.
Without a timeshare, you can take a vacation, or put one off, whenever you want. But with a timeshare, it can feel like you have to take a vacation that you can’t afford. After all, you don’t want to waste the money you’ve been paying out in payments.
Cut Your Losses
To get rid of a timeshare there are often a lot of penalties. The company’s purpose is to make it seem like it makes better financial sense to keep paying.
You may have to sell it for less than you paid for it. You may be lucky enough to get what you paid for it, but over the years you’ve put a lot more into it. There’s very rarely a nice return on investment in the timeshare world. You can expect some cancellation fees from the company as well.
But take some time to read the fine print. You may have to pay out of pocket to get rid of your timeshare. But in the long run, you may end up saving a significant amount of money.
Then you can take the vacation that your timeshare has held you back from.
