Buying a timeshare is an exciting life project that will bring a whole host of wonderful memories and opportunities to spend quality time with family and friends, yet there are so many companies out there selling timeshare, how do you know which one to choose?
Probably the most important advice you could take, that will save you a lot of time, stress and money, is to go with an established company whose reputation precedes them. Much of the bad press about timeshare is actually generated by upstart companies or even rogue sales teams whose ruthless methods are notorious. When dealing with an established company, you will instantly notice the difference, their sales are based on quality and product satisfaction, putting the onus on what timeshare can offer you.
So, what can an established timeshare company offer you?
Reputable companies have been experts in their field for a long time and know when a destination is ripe for an investment. That is why long-running timeshare companies are usually located in the best destinations worldwide. They don’t move an inch without doing their ground work and as a buyer you simply arrive and take advantage of their vision. They also have the advantage of knowing what their customers want, they are not trying to second guess the market, they are connoisseurs of their trade and probably have a better idea of your vacation needs than you do.
Your investment is also in safe hands when you buy with an established company. Besides the fact that properties are always well situated in prime locations, you also have security of knowing that when times get tough they will still be standing. Younger, less experienced companies are the first to feel the pinch in an economic crisis and owners often take the brunt especially if they have bought during a pre-sale offer.
Finally, one the great advantages of buying from a long standing company is the sheer volume of its timeshare repertoire. Long standing companies are very likely to have an impressive number of complexes, which gives you the flexibility to be able to swap your timeshare or upgrade your property as you and your finances evolve.
