Advance, or up-front, fees are the costs associated with listing a timeshare property for sale. Never pay any up-front fees to sell your ownership.
Requesting a fee for services before a purchase agreement is signed, is not a legitimate business practice for Real Estate brokers. You wouldn’t pay your Realtor before they sell your house, so don’t pay your timeshare broker before they produce results for you.
Up-front fees may range from $50 to $200; however most reputable Brokers will list your ownership at no cost to you. Once your listing agent has been paid, they will have no incentive to sell your ownership. Feel free to contact us if you need assistance with recovering an upfront fee, or checking the legitimacy of the offer you are presented to list your ownership with.
