Timeshare Points Is A Crazy System Of Someone’s Money Grabbing Imagination!

May 20, 2017

Just remember that the original concept of timeshare was one week of vacation every year along with a deed and title, but the concept took a different turn years ago when the Point system was cooked up.

With points you really don’t know what you get and to prove it look at the study of how points compare between the various point related resorts in the market today. Click here.

It Drives Me Crazy About The Debate Between Points And Deeded Timeshare Property! Think People, Think.

May 13, 2017

Take a look at this discussion board about timeshare points and deeded timeshare property. Click here.

The next time you take a tour of a timeshare resort, ask yourself ” What really am I buying?”   If you like the resort after the salesperson shows you a two or 3 bedroom unit if (you will get the same unit he or she sold you the next time your come to the rsort?)

If not, ask why?  Simple answer – you are not getting a deeded property.  You are getting the right to use the resort or in other words you are in a “buying club” with nothing tangible that you own. Check out what we have explained over the years about Deeded vs Points 

Think people think. Sorry for the rant but we hear these stories all the time.

What are the financial benefits of buying a timeshare?

May 8, 2017

This question was asked by someone on the Tug2.net forum board and there were some good comments. But the one that stood out the most was buying re-sale.  We own 3 deeded timeshare properties.  Click here for Forum Board

Buying points cannot be justified no matter how good t timeshare salesman explains it. It is not deeded real estate. It’s a money maker for the big boys selling timeshare today.

Direct Timeshare vs. Resale Timeshare Benefits?

April 22, 2017

The title of  Direct Timeshare vs. Resale Timeshare Benefits refers to buying at retail from a salesman at any timeshare resort or buying through the Internet for as little as $1.00 or elsewhere from a current customer or anyone looking to get rid of their  timeshare for little or nothing.

My wife and I own 3 deeded weeks at 3 different resorts. One week was given to us outright from someone who paid $8,800 but never used it, another we purchased directly at a resort, through their association without any salesman and another was purchased from a user who used it for extensive travels over the years and no longer were traveling. They paid somewhere around $10,000 for it 10-12 years earlier and were willing to pay all closing costs and letting it go for only $400.

A True Story

It was going to be a quick Spring getaway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Melanie and Craig had always loved the mountains. When they realized they had a week to sneak away, they decided to rent a condo in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They wanted to witness the mountains coming back to life after a long winter.

The drive would take around eight hours, but Gatlinburg would be an ideal base from which to explore the park. They could do a little hiking, and search for wildflowers and other “spring peepers.” If weather permitted, there might even be some fishing or horseback riding included in the agenda.

The weather was good when they set out. And the trip there, while long, went very smoothly. Melanie and Craig were both glad to pull into the parking lot of their condo, unload the car and grab a quick bite. After all of that, it was time to call it a day. They wanted to rest so they could get up early and get off to a good start.

But in the morning, things started to get really bad.

Melanie had a really restless night and barely slept. She complained to Craig that she was having trouble catching her breath. Then, suddenly, she blacked out. Craig tried to revive her, but when she came to she was unable to communicate with him at all. Then she blacked out again.

Craig called 911 and waited–for what seemed like an eternity–for the EMTs to arrive.

After a quick evaluation, Melanie was (more…)
