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.
