Understanding the fee you’ll be paying for selling.
When you sell your timeshare, you will be required to pay a transfer fee. Each resort charges different transfer fees. And avoid using services that charge you upfront fees for selling your timeshare.
Finally, make sure that you get an escrow service.
When you sell a timeshare, you should make sure you use a reputable escrow service. An escrow service will hold the money until the contract is fully completed. This means that the owner will get the money after the contract is fully completed. When looking for an escrow company, you need to make sure it is licensed, bonded, and insured.
