Whether you just don’t use it anymore or you are sick of the never-ending, ever-increasing maintenance fees, the time has come to get rid of your timeshare. Most owners look to selling their timeshare first, as a way to recoup some of their original investment. However, the low ratio of buyers to sellers has depressed the re-sale market to a point where many owners cannot find relief from their timeshare ownership. To add to the frustration, there are countless timeshare scams and deceitful timeshare listing and relief companies that have emerged to prey on desperate owners. Thankfully, there are legitimate options out there. Read on to find out how you can finally find relief from your troublesome timeshare!
One option many timeshare owners are not even aware of is timeshare donation. Donate For a Cause uses donated timeshares to raise much needed capital for our affiliated charities. Timeshare donation is a mutually beneficial arrangement: the great charities we support receive much needed financial contributions and timeshare owners, who become donors, receive a tax deduction and freedom from their timeshare ownership. Donors may receive a tax deduction worth up to $6,000. In most cases, the tax savings far exceed the cost of donation, which is just like putting cash back into our owners’ pockets. Please contact one of our friendly donation specialists today for a free assessment of your timeshare.
Timeshare rescue companies (also known as timeshare relief companies) generally charge a timeshare owner between $2,500 and $6,500 to rid them of their ownership. While they do typically perform, they are not actually taking ownership of the timeshare leaving owners on the hook for maintenance fees and special assessments. When Donate for a Cause accepts your timeshare for donation, we take the title out of your name, guaranteed.
Timeshare listing companies usually charge a fee (anywhere from $60 all the way up to several thousands of dollars) to list a timeshare in a number of online and print publications in the hopes of finding a new owner for the timeshare. While the concept of listing a timeshare for sale might make sense, the listing company has no real incentive to sell a timeshare. In fact, not selling the timeshare is beneficial to a listing company because they will receive listing dues month after month, until a timeshare owner is too frustrated to continue to pay them.
As you can see, out of all of these options, donating your timeshare with Donate For A Cause is the only guaranteed way to get rid of your timeshare and come out ahead. By going this route you are helping out some great causes, while at the same time relieving yourself from the financial burdens associated with your timeshare. We want your timeshare! And we can have your name off title in as little as 8-12 weeks.
