Timeshare Points – Simple Example
Let’s take an example of one spring/summer week we purchased on the resale market. The previous owner was a 2nd owner. We were the 3rd owner. We purchased the two bedroom deeded timeshare week for only $400. The owner we purchased the week from owned it for 10 years and paid $10,000. So, we got a beautiful week, right on the golf course at Breezy Point International Resort here in Minnesota. Click here for a photo of our unit that we use every year.
Now, let’s look at how it might have been sold in the point system instead of the deeded week system. All kinds of things are considered, so we will try to give you an example.
1. Points is considered on whether it is an efficient or one bedroom or two bedroom.
2. Points is considered based the time of year, winter demand, summer and fall demand.
3. Points will not give you the same unit each year you wish to use.
4..Points will not consider in a 52 week year how many owners will be sold.
Example: In deeded timeshare weeks usually only 51 owners will be sold. One week is left open for maintenance
5. Using points as an example for this one week. There could be maybe 500 or more owners depending how many points they purchased based on the time of year, resort highest demand week and lowest demand week one bedroom two bedroom unit etc, etc. You will never know how many buyers were showed a beautiful timeshare unit and sold points based on what was showed by the sales representative.
So, my point. The point system oversells the number of people per week and costs more money to the timeshare buyers. You also must pay maintenance fee’s, just like a deeded week owner, every year based on the cost of your points.
