Resale Checklist

Even though it’s a vacation-use product, selling a timeshare usually involves the same steps involved in selling real estate, such as a house. Before selling your timeshare, make sure that you have your paperwork in order.

The following checklist should help:

  • the name, address, and phone number of the resort.
  • the deed, and the contract or membership agreement which clearly identifies the interests that you own.
  • the financing agreement (if you are still paying for the property) — remember you’ll have to pay this off before you can transfer your interests to a new owner.
  • any title insurance information.
  • any other information to identify clearly your particular interest or membership.
  • the exchange company affiliation.
  • the amount and due date of your maintenance fee, and whether it has been paid for the current year.
  • the amount of real estate taxes (if billed separately), the due date, and whether they have yet been paid for the current year.
  • the date your timeshare will next become available for use by a new owner or when a new owner can first make a reservation.
  • whether or not your timeshare is a fixed week and/or unit or requires an advance reservation (a floating or flex-time timeshare).
  • gather copies of the documents governing the resort owner’s association, if any, the resort’s rules and regulations, reservation rules and any other information that would be helpful to a new owner, such as area attractions.
  • know whether or not your vacation interest is legally classified as real estate or personal property, as this will make a difference in how it is conveyed to a new owner.
