www.myresortnetwork.com. Plus give the where, when, what and how much on this site and you may get some nibbles. Keep in mind most of us already own and are pretty cheap but it is worth a try. See Ya

On the resale market you can get a studio for between $1500-$2500 and a 1 bedroom for $2000-$4000.

If you bought new and are trying to sell, the bad news is you can only expect to receive pennies on the dollar for what you originally spent. There are many on the market right now with the state of our economy and the fact that so many people paid $20,000+ for their timeshare and they are only worth $2000.

Quick question, are those prices the fees per year? Or is that to purchase the timeshare from the owner and then you still have to pay the fees on top of that? Also is that one week, two weeks, or ???

nsstampqueen ~ go to redweek.com and join as a guest. You can see rental prices and sale prices quite easily.

Annual maintenance fees vary by size of unit and by resort. Expect $500 - $800 per year. The original cost might be $20,000. The resale cost might be $2,000. The buyer pays the $2,000 to the seller and takes over the annual maintenance fees.

Folks who can't use their timeshare rent the week ~ trying to cover the maintenance fee and then some. I saw on redweek.com this morning that someone is trying to rent their PB Blanco week for $300 starting today. It looks like they aren't going and they haven't been able to rent it, so they just pay the fee this year.

Some folks on this forum have reported excellent deals on the resale market ~ eBay, craigslist, holidaygroup. Buying a timeshare for $1 or $100 is excellent for the buyer, but not so good for the seller. My friend was given his unit at the Rose, just so the owner could get out from under the annual maintenance fee.
