I was contacted by James Peters at Timeshare Solutions Realty ( ) regarding the sale of my timeshare. I’ve received a number of calls since I stupidly placed an ad on Craiglist.org. James gave a great sales pitch and told me it’d cost $550.00 for the “marketing fee” to list my condo with his group. And while that may have been true, I did some checking and found out that you don’t need to spend money upfront to list your condo. I’ve not been scammed, but suspect I would’ve if I’d given away my $550.00. For all those out there who want to know the down low — I found it! I visited the Better Business Bureau web site and found accredited timeshare real estate brokers. I spoke with Carrie at . She gave me all the info I needed. A few things: a). timeshares aren’t selling and sell for very little. b). you don’t need to put money down, you just need to list and be patient. d). visit for a complete listing of legitimate timeshare brokers. e). list your condo on many sites to increase exposure. Carrie advised that I list with several brokers (non-exclusive, open listing) and then be patient. Her office adds a commission to whatever I list my condo at. Be prepared to negotiate…if you check eBay, you’ll find many people who aren’t able to give their timeshare away. Anyway, that’s what I learned. Hope it helps everyone out there from getting ripped off. Remember, you don’t need to spend one penny to list your timeshare!
