When looking to get rid of a timeshare, selling can seem like an appealing option. Unfortunately, timeshares have little to no value in the market, making them an impossible sale. Many companies will try to take advantage of unsuspecting owners by claiming they can sell your property for you, but in most cases, this is untrue. They will employ one of several tactics to scam you, including calling you and claiming to have a buyer for your timeshare, requesting upfront fees to get you released from your contract or market your property, or rushing you through the process.

How to Avoid a Timeshare Resale Scam

  • Don’t consider a reseller that reaches out to you first.
  • Make a list of legitimate resale companies or realtors in your area and double-check their standing from the Attorney General’s office, the state’s Division of Corporation, or your local Better Business Bureau.
  • Don’t make a decision in one phone call, no matter how desperate you are. Most timeshare resale scams in Florida happen in just one phone call.
  • Consult with an attorney who’s adept in the field or hire one to assist you throughout the transaction.
