Timeshare donation is a hot topic in the world of timeshare ownership. With the promise to donate your timeshare to charity, you may be contacted by a “timeshare donation company” assuring you that timeshare donation is a win-win solution to the problem of how to get rid of a timeshare. The success rate of these timeshare donation attempts varies hugely from timeshare to timeshare and is established almost exclusively by the market worth of the property in question. Sadly, many timeshare owners are led to believe that their timeshares are worth far more than what they really are.
The timeshare resale market is nearly completely flat, as timeshare resorts and developers have inundated the market with fresh inventory that they need to move. If your timeshare resort company promises they will help you resell or rent out your timeshare, they are simply telling you what they think you want to hear. You may be told this at the time they are pitching you to buy a timeshare, or when you call the company looking for a way out of your timeshare obligations.
