OK. Why I am mentioning these properties “For Sale” by private sellers. Mostly to help them out. My wife and I purchased all 3 deeded timeshare weeks we own, many years ago, from people who not longer wished to travel or didn’t want to pay the maintenance fee’s any longer. They paid the retail prices, some as high as $24,000 for these deeded properties.
We see a lot of the sellers list either one bedroom units or points. We suggest you consider deeded property. The cost to buy would be a little higher with deeded timeshare because of the closing cost of recording your legal documents with the county. We paid $400 for a prime summer week and the seller paid the closing cost. We still use that 2 bedroom today as our summer getaway 2.5 miles from our home.
Consider buying close to home so you can use the resort facilities during the year other than one week a year.
Consider a two bedroom unit for family and friends.
Confirm with the resort that this is a current owner at that resort and is current with their maintenance fee’s. Do your research. Plenty of information here on our website.
