Resale vs. Developer Timeshares

Since its inception, Angwell Travel has helped vacationers all over the world find appropriate timeshares. Angwell Travel offers resale timeshares in numerous leading vacation destinations, including the Caribbean Islands.

When buying a timeshare, a vacationer can either buy directly from the developer or purchase resale through a third party. Developer sales once dominated the market as the most popular timeshare sale option, largely because developers have the resources to publicize their properties and host sales presentations at popular resorts. Developers also offer many industry-leading amenities and services that buyers choose and then retain for life, making it difficult to find some such properites on the resale market.

However, as the Internet has made property information available to more people, resale timeshare has increased in popularity. Buyers, who once would have been limited to what developers presented, can instead browse information without pressure and examine options from more than one seller. In addition, because resale companies do not carry the marketing and building costs that developers incur, these companies can offer prices that are up to 50 percent lower than developers charge for similar properties.


Timeshare Vacation Terms

A leader in the travel industry, Angwell Travel strives to provide unforgettable vacation experiences for its customers. Through its timeshare arrangements, Angwell Travel is able to provide these vacations at affordable prices. It also helps to take the confusion out of timeshare opportunities.

In receiving sales information about timeshare opportunities, prospective customers may be exposed to unfamiliar terms, such as fixed week, floating week, and flex week. While these terms may be confusing at first, it is important that vacation-goers seek to understand what they mean. They affect the ways that the owner of the timeshare may use the vacation property.

In a fixed week arrangement, there is a certain week every year that a vacation-goer can occupy the vacation property. This is a good option for people who prefer to stay at the same unit and location year after year, developing a vacation tradition. A floating week arrangement, on the other hand, gives the vacation-goer more flexibility. He or she may choose which week to visit the property, and a special fee is typically not charged (although sometimes there are restrictions). A vacation-goer might have to choose between the weeks in a certain season, for example.

Finally, there is the flex-week option, in which the vacation-goer may stay in the property for a certain week each year; the scheduled week may, however, be altered from year to year with the payment of a fee.
