A timeshare is not an investment. A timeshare is not an investment, it’s a vacation. It’s also an illiquid asset that is likely to lose value over time. Ultimately, timeshares are like swimming pools, if you buy one, do so because you love the idea of owning it, not because you expect to make a profit.
Vacation Village Resorts is an acclaimed vacation ownership company that sells timeshares in more than 40 resort locations.
Because this is a state law, there is nothing Vacation Village can do if you want to rescind your timeshare purchase. The company is required by law to take the timeshare back with no questions asked. The catch is that rescission is only available for about 1 – 3 weeks after the timeshare is initially purchased.
Yes, timeshares are a waste of money. They are marketed as an investment. In fact, you can buy someone’s timeshare for as little as $1 or even for free. The amount of money it will cost every year to own a timeshare will likely be more than if you booked a week at the same timeshare property on your own.
The timeshare property market is highly saturated. Since they’re not in demand, timeshares are difficult to sell unless you’re willing to take a loss. Enough people have had bad experiences with timeshare purchases that they’re not interested in ever purchasing one again.

How many resorts does vacation village have?
Our 15 flagship resorts and over 40 affiliated resorts are located in some of the most popular vacation destinations across the United States, including theme-park rich Orlando, the bright lights of Las Vegas, the destination beaches and shopping of South Florida and more!
If you stop paying it, the timeshare company will do whatever it takes to collect. They’ll make phone calls and send letters, then they’ll assign it over to (you guessed it) a collections company. If you still don’t pay, the situation sinks even further into foreclosure and possible legal action against you.
The resort is not legally obligated to take a timeshare back from you. If you can’t find a willing owner to take over your unit, you’ll have to put your case to the property’s manager. Your other option is to try to give the property to someone else or sell it for whatever you can get.
Looking to Get Out of a Timeshare? Here’s How to Do It Legally
- Call the developer.
- Rent it out.
- Sell it on the resale market (expect to take a hit).
- Gift it to a friend, family member or stranger.
- Stop your payments (but expect consequences).
- Avoid scams.
Timeshares themselves are not a scam. The memories and vacation experiences they create for owners is not a scam. To avoid a timeshare scam, the most trustworthy sources of information are the developer or brand, the American Resort Development Association and their recognized members.
