About Sharket Research
Sharket has created an extensive database providing timeshare resale transaction data for more than 1,400 resorts. This information provides timeshare owners with the comprehensive timeshare resale data they need to make an informed decision about how to price their timeshare unit or whether to buy at a resort they’re considering.
As part of this free research service, Sharket measures, scores and ranks the world’s timeshare resorts based on resale volume and typical pricing at each resort. This “Saleability Score™” is calculated as the sum of a Median Price Score and a Sales Count Score at each resort, with a score of 1 being the lowest (worst) and 10 being the highest (best).
Sharket’s methodology is extensively documented on the Sharket website.
Sharket.com is a free resource with the world’s most comprehensive database of actual timeshare resales data. To help consumers understand how much their timeshare is worth, similar to Zillow for residential real estate or Kelly Blue Book for autos, Sharket offers a gold mine of data that shows recent sales transactions and the typical price a seller could expect based on the average of recent sales. In addition, the website displays a color-coded Saleability Score and Resort Rank as an aid to consumers in comparing resorts. Sales data is compiled primarily from county land records.
Sharket is providing public access to market value data in order to fuel efficient, reliable transactions. Sharket believes that educated consumers make the best timeshare owners. This information will benefit the entire industry in the long run, with the ultimate goal of drying up the fertile ground fraudsters and scam artists have been enjoying at the industry’s expense. “That’s why we decided to open up our database and make it available to everyone,” says Schmidt.
