Timeshare Investment Myths

There are many myths surrounding the timeshare industry, most of them painting a negative picture thanks to deliberate scams. The reality is somewhat different when you purchase from a reputable company and many of the myths that circulate about it are actually misleading.

Expensive

The myth that you need to have a lot of money to be able to afford a timeshare is a fallacy. In fact, timeshares are a great way to invest in a second home when you would otherwise not have the funds to do so. There are also many different levels of ownership meaning that there is something for all budgets, and thanks to upgrades, you can move up to a more luxurious accommodation as your finances evolve.

Risky

The risk involved in timeshare depends on the company you buy with. As a rule, most genuine operators present relatively low risk, but you must be sure to avoid scams. With a little research on the internet, the fraudulent timeshare companies become very obvious.

Restrictions

Because you buy a timeshare week at a particular location for specific dates, many people assume that this is inflexible. The truth is rather different. The beauty of timeshare is that you have the option of going to the same place during the same dates every year, if you wish, but can also swap those dates and destinations according to your preferences and plans.

Costly Maintenance Fees?

Maintenance fees are a reality of timeshare as they are intended to secure your investment and make sure that your property and common areas are kept in perfect condition. They are unfortunately an essential outgoing but should not be unnecessarily high.

There are actually many benefits to being an owner. You are able to buy a property that would otherwise be out of your financial reach and you are encouraged to take regular trips abroad. Many reviews suggest that owning a timeshare can enhance quality time together as a family.

The accommodations on sale are generally very spacious and much bigger than hotel rooms. Your unit is more like an apartment with all the facilities of a home away from home, including a kitchen, dining room and living area. Families can enjoy their time together in comfort and save money by eating in the apartment.

The financial benefits of owning a timeshare are also clear. Any investment is a risk but is a lifelong investment in memories with the potential to make money on the side renting or selling your unit. If you buy with a well established reputable company your investment is very safe as they have years of experience choosing great locations and building first class resorts that you will want to return to year after year.

You can’t talk about timeshare truths without mentioning maintenance fees. While maintenance fees generate a lot of complaints they are in fact an unavoidable necessity to ensure that you receive your property in the condition you bought it in. The fees also go towards the general upkeep of the resort itself, including spa, pools and gym equipment.
