The byline should be: “Sorry I Bought A Timeshare”.
Now you know where I’m going with this.
From time to time I still enjoy reading literary classics. Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner” has deep and meaningful messages throughout. Those truths apply just as much today as they did around 1798 when it was published.
From this classic we get the phrases “albatross around my neck”, “water, water, every where, nor any drop to drink”.
At the heart of the story is the ancient mariner who wore an albatross around his neck to remind everyone of a bad choice he had made.
Ever make a bad choice? I know I have. But bad choices are compounded when something remains to remind you of that bad choice.
There are circumstances where your decision to buy a timeshare may have been a bad choice. Maybe it seemed the right choice at the time but circumstances have changed. Now you have this timeshare and the fees that go with it hanging around your neck that you just can not get rid of.
It has become a curse: paying annual fees for something y0u do not and will never use. Adding insult to injury, you have tried to sell your timeshare with no success. Even paying fees with promises that were to good to be true.
The good news is that a timeshare need not be your “albatross”.
Understanding the process of selling your timeshare is critical. Take the time to educate yourself about it before you decide to sell. Guides to Selling Timeshare are available through www.timesharelink.com. There are FAQ sections, loads of information and people you can call if you need help.
The most common myth about selling your timeshare is the misconception that a timeshare is a good investment. The seeds for this notion likely came from the salesperson who sold you your timeshare. The value of a timeshare is found only when you use it. It has no true intrinsic value on its own. Plus, if you do not use your timeshare and still pay the annual maintenance fees it is near to impossible to place a value on it. In fact, some accountants may consider it a liability instead of an asset.
