Need to sell timeshare......
Can anyone help me with a name or company in STT or STJ for selling a timeshare at the Westin on STJ?
I was in the timeshare industry for 7 years here, then I opened a timeshare resale business (which got shut down due to a non-compete clause), and the best person, that I am aware of, to use is Tommy Tubbs at www.timesharestogo.com Avoid, at all costs, any place that you see on TV, or any place that wants to charge you a fee up front. They just throw it on the pile of others they have for sale. Tommy doesn't take a commission until AFTER it is sold. Good guy. He'll do you right.
You might try listing it on eBay as well (with a reserve price of course). Chances are the buyer will get a good deal and you'll get more for it than if you sold it thru a broker.
Hi KC Kid,
I tried to send you a Private Message but couldn't get it to go through. If you would PM me that would be great so I can pass along some infomation. Are you from Kansas City (you knoe KC Kid) - we moved from the Plaza so maybe it's a small world after all (as the song goes 🙂 )
Thanks for the fast responses- yes we are from the Kansas City area- just west of Overland Park (Spring Hill, Gardner area).You can email me if you'd like at email@example.com.
Regarding selling it on eBay, when we opened our re-sale office, one of the things we did was list a lot of our inventory on ebay (with modest reserve prices) and we didn't have much luck there. The market was just too flooded. We had better luck with face to face, which is what Tommy does. Good idea, though. Not too expensive, and nothing ventured, nothing gained, right? Give it a shot.
On a side note, when listing a price, you might want to look at what other timeshares are selling for. I have upset a lot of people (unitentionally) when they found out what the re-sale market would bear with their timeshare. As an example, if your timeshare was, say $15,000 new, you would be lucky to get $5,000 on the re-sale market. $3,000 is probably more realistic. Call Tommy Tubbs, though, as I have been out of the re-sale line for a coupla years, and he knows the market much better than I. Good luck to ya.
