Resort Equity Management Informative - Don't fall for this - Timeshare sales/rentals

Review by AKAngela on 2009-07-23
$995 is what they asked for from me over the phone, to cover virtual tour and marketing packet. They solicited me, not the other way around, and I'll be darned if they didn't say when they left a message for me, they were with the timeshare company itself. However, on the phone I verified that they were not with my timeshare company, and in fact the salesperson was pretty low key and didn't use any pumped up promises, just said I had to pay the money now and read the contract later - a huge red flag. Plus the fact I live in California and I don't think it's even legal here to take up front fees for a real estate transaction. But, I'm sure if they represented it correctly, I would have understood they are not making a real estate transaction at all, just creating a really lousy-looking website to post ads (and I want to know if anyone has actually sold a timeshare through their site? Too hard to search and no photos.) Bottom line, if you want to sell you can post on Craigslist or something similar WITH a photo and probably get a better response, for free.
