Buyatimeshare.com Complaint - Beware of Upfront Payments to Sell Your Timeshare
I was contacted by this sales person Cynthia, offering to sell my Timeshare in Kauai, Hawaii for $23,000. She assured me that despite having over 30 listing of properties from my resort on her site, she a had a strong demand for my timeshare. She promised me for a payment of $1,300 upfront for advertising, that my property would move very quickly. If my property did not sale in a few months, the company would continue marketing my timeshare and would give me refund of my upfront payment if I located a buyer before they closed a sell.
She promised me a refund over the telephone if I became unhappy. However, when she sent me a copy of the agreement, it indicated no refund of upfront fees.
I have checked will several sources within the Timeshare industry including Marriott and they all advised against doing business with these listing companies that charge upfront fees. Secondly, it is pretty unrealistic to sell your timeshare for more than 50% of your purchase price up to the breakeven amount.
Beware of any upfront fee to list your timeshare over and above a nominal fee usually less than a $100.
