by : David Faulkner

Purchasing timeshares can be completed using several different methods. Knowledge about the methods available may save you thousands of dollars. By choosing wisely, money can be put back into your pocket instead of being wasted. This article was written for showing you three of the more popular methods of purchasing a timeshare.

Prospective buyers are presented with an opportunity to purchase timeshares when they receive invitations to a resort property. Most of these invitations give you the opportunity to stay at the resort for the weekend. This has been an effective sales tactic in the past. While you are being shown all the wonderful amenities of the timeshare, the sales person is pushing for the sale because they work solely on commissions. They can show you what is available but do not rely on them for the information necessary to make an informed decision about spending your money on them. The real thing to keep in mind is the commissions and salaries of those working of the company offering them have their wages included in the cost of the timeshare.

The resellers offering timeshares will be the next encounter you will have with purchasing. The businesses offering the timeshare will be the intermediary that joins the buyer and seller together. If thinking a reseller is the way to go, think about these things first:

1. Knowledge of the fees being added to the process of the timeshare is necessary.
2. Find out what fees apply that is not included in the timeshare price
3. Provide yourself with a list of any fees for the title, state transfer taxes, unique resort evaluations, and maintenance fees due.
4. Find out your particular schedule to the timeshare to know when it will be available for you.

Remember, if the time you select for the use of the timeshare is passed, you will need to prepare yourself to wait until the following year to use it. For more info see on my timeshare need.

The last method and the one that will cost less are to become the outright owner of the timeshare. You will be able to find lists of timeshares directly for sale by the current owner. EBay is the best place to find those lists. An example of this listing is the timeshare that was purchased for fourteen thousand dollars less than what the original sales price would be. That is hard to believe but true way to save money. Be thorough and realize there are fees associated with timeshare property that will be included in the cost.

As with anything you spend your money on, you will find problems. Study each item with care and concern before agreeing to anything. Research will be your friend in the future. By purchasing the timeshare from the owners, money will be saved. You might even be able to save yourself thousands of dollars that can be used for the trip. Simply Unbelievable!
