Let's face it, we have been facing a wide spread financial recession for quite some time. Rough financial times have lead several Americans into the thought of selling their timeshares. But, what are the factors that people should think about before selling timeshare properties? Are there any dangers in attempting to sell a timeshare?

Several consumers believe that it will be easy to sell a timeshare property and even make some money. Sadly, this is not the case. The truth is that because of the same financial recession that has lead a great deal of people into wanting to sell their timeshares, the demand for timeshares has gone down. Also, with the influx of consumers attempting to sell a timeshare and the timeshare property developers continuing to expand, there is an overwhelming supply of available timeshare properties to people. These supply and demand factors have made it very hard for people to sell their timeshares.

When it comes to Americans trying to sell a timeshare, there are a few dangers to look out for:

Telemarketers: First and foremost, people (especially elderly people) should really be weary of telemarketers attempting to sell their timeshares. Many times, these companies are fraudulent companies. The way the fraud works is a representative from a timeshare property resale company will call consumers saying that they are able to sell a timeshare property for them or that they already have a buyer for the timeshares. As with any service, there are fees involved in some cases, thousands of dollars will be charged up front for the timeshare property sales service. After a few months, consumers realize that their timeshares have not yet sold. These consumers then call the customer service phone number that they were given only to find out the number is disconnected! Don't be the next victim!

Cost: Another thing that consumers really need to look at is the cost involved in selling timeshares. Several people find that they have spent thousands and thousands of dollars to sell their timeshare properties and the timeshares have not yet sold. This is because for a timeshare to sell, consumers have to place the timeshare on multiple sales websites for maximum exposure. Each of these websites has fees involved in listing that may not seem like much but can be overwhelming after some time on the market!

With everything going on in the timeshare sales industry, my personal advice to people who want to get rid of their timeshares is to look into timeshare cancellation. Timeshare cancellation is the process of deeding a timeshare property back to the developer based on discrepancies in the sales process and contract associated with the timeshare property. Although timeshare property cancellation is a very new process it is definitely one worth a bit of attention!
