Retail vs. Resale

What’s the Difference?

Retail vs. Resale

Selling Timeshares, Inc. would like to show you that buying a timeshare can be done with ease, integrity, and a pressure-free experience. Thanks to the often questionable, high-pressure sales tactics that are commonly practiced at timeshare presentations, there is a natural aversion to timeshares for some. We intend to show you the value and affordability that a vacation ownership can offer, and just how pleasurable the buying experience can be for our clients.

In presentation situations, it’s common practice for attendees to receive a gift, designed to entice them into listening to a sales agent’s pitch. It’s estimated that it takes approximately 50-60% of the sales price of a retail timeshare to cover the marketing and sales costs incurred by the presentation model. An unfair side effect from this model is that the people who are pressured into the purchase, and buy without doing their homework, will pay all the expenses of the presentation. These customers are forced to shoulder the expense of the gifts that were given to the people that didn’t buy. All owners should have the opportunity of at least knowing the difference between retail and resale, especially before buying a timeshare at a presentation.

Buying a resale vacation ownership on the secondary market can offer a much more affordable, realistic way for everyone to get away, and do it in style!
