Time Sharing Property

A timeshare or timesharing property is a type of vacation ownership. Traditionally, the timeshare buyer purchases the right to spend a week per year at a certain timeshare property. A timeshare may offer greater flexibility to the buyer than a typical vacation. In addition, the timeshare purchase may offer the buyer with the ability to exchange his or her week for another week at a different resort. Timeshares may be an ideal option for many vacationers.

About 10 million people in the United States own a timeshare. Some people buy into timeshares to extend their vacation dollars. Instead of buying a vacation home—and all of the related expenses and hassles of owning a second or third home—the timeshare buyer purchases a share of the property in which he or she will spend one or two weeks each year.

Timeshare Annual Maintenance Fees

The cost of maintaining a timeshare may include what some consider “neverending” annual maintenance fees. According to the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), the average timeshare buyer paid $880 per year in fees. ARDA reports that the average timeshare owner receives zero to 15 percent of the original timeshare cost in the aftermarket.

Perhaps the owner doesn’t want to travel to the timeshare or can’t afford the maintenance fees. Some timeshare fees increase each year, and rising costs can become burdensome. If the buyer decides that he or she no longer wants to vacation at the timeshare property, he or she may have questions like “How do I get rid of my timeshare ?”

It’s possible to get rid of a timeshare as long as the vacationer manages his or her expectations. You might not receive much (or any) money to cancel the timeshare. In some cases, the resort won’t allow the participant to give back the timeshare even at zero cost. Regardless, the participant is still responsible for the cost of annual maintenance on the property.

Timeshare Sales

The ARDA reports that it’s easier to sell a big chain timeshare, such as those offered by Starwood, Disney, Hyatt, Hilton, or Ritz. The timeshare season counts. For example, a December timeshare week in Aspen is likely to draw more interest than a timeshare in August. Use these tips to sell a timeshare:

1. Some sellers pay an upcoming maintenance fee to improve the timeshare’s appeal to a new buyer. In that scenario, the new buyer needs to pay only closing costs to complete the transaction.

2. Buying a secondary market timeshare improves the buyer’s chances of a later break-even. It’s possible to buy attractive timeshares at a reasonable cost in the resale market.

3. Don’t pay upfront fees. Never pay “appraisal fees” or “advertising fees” to list a timeshare. Member sites charge an annual fee to post timeshare investments—but don’t charge additional fees.

4. Don’t buy into donation scams. The U.S. Department of Justice says that “Donate for a Cause” encouraged timeshare owners to donate timeshares to be rid of them, promising an enticing tax loss in return.

5. A reputable timeshare broker charges commission if and only if a timeshare is sold, according to the Licensed Timeshare Resale Broker Association. Commissions average $1,500 – $2,000.

Timeshare Rentals

Although owners report it’s challenging to sell a timeshare, it may be possible to rent it out to recover some or all of the annual maintenance fee. Check the contract to learn if the resort allows you to rent out the timeshare.

Another Plan

So I already mentioned here about putting mini grocers but I have another plan though and that is to assign my oldest sister to be the one guarding the store.

I gave her P 200 each day up to Saturday and right now since I don’t have work, it would be better I guess if I will assigned her to do things in the mini grocers that I will be  putting up. But I will still be the one doing the inventory and monitoring of stocks to make sure that I will gain too.

Somebody told me I should get 10% from the earning that we have each day, the 10% is my net already. I am thinking to just save the net in the bank to check how much will be the total each month.

But since sister will be the managing the mini grocers that means to say I should not be working. It’s a long time plan; I still have to save for the mini grocers, maybe 2 or 3 years of working at the BPO. I am not sure yet, maybe I will take this option or the other option. Let’s see…

Until We Will Be Known

I was on my way to NSO today; I was in Jeepney thinking over things. Thinking if I would be able to stay long to my new job until I thought about the store that I put up long time in sister’s house, The store is closed for long years already and I was thinking, what if I would open it up and I will be the one to manage, maybe it will work this time. I almost want to back to the house to talk about this with my sister but I have to put a hold on it since I need to gather all my requirements for my new job.

So if my training will be too far yet maybe I would start the small business a bit earlier, maybe on September or October but if my training schedule is earlier then I may have to start the small business on December or January. I already have in mind what are the things I am going to put there. The brother in law will be the one to assist me there; I will just give him maybe P 500. 00 per week for the meantime until we will be known.

I hope this plan will be set real soon.

A Review

I just chatted with my friend in FB, one is resigning again. I get scared, what if I will lose this job too I have nothing to go unless if I will do some business.  Of course we need to have a feasibility study just like what my husband suggested. I need a business review too so that my whatever I am selling or whatever my business is it will going to be known in the internet, I’d like to check Cozy Winters Reviews I am sure they can offer me something, something that I can attract more clients. And that something will give me more opportunity.
