Somewhere, there are a lot of people who love their timeshares, I just don't know any of them. I know my sister previously listed her timeshare at Whitebirch at Breezy Point, Minnesota, with the real estate company that sells timeshares there, and she insists the person who took her listing told her she is not a real estate agent. I don't know about Minnesota law, but a non-agent could not take a listing in California.
Of course, the timeshare is not selling; her so-called listing expired, and Breezy Point Resort seems to have a pile of timeshare listings a mile long. I suggested to my sister that she give away her timeshare. Then a bunch of "non-profit" companies began calling her, asking her to pay to sell the timeshare. You should read this month's issue of AARP Magazine about these underhanded practices.
Fortunately, she talked to me about it first. You can read more in my personal blog today about this, and who knows, maybe you or somebody you know would like to take her Memorial Day Weekend timeshare off her hands? You can see the photos and read more at this link: Timeshare Ripoffs and Reasons to Never Buy a Timeshare.
