Why We Are Better Than eBay and Craigs List!
eBay: We are far less expensive than eBay! For a 30 day timeshare listing on eBay their starting price is $150.00. That does not include any extra features such as photos (photos cost extra with eBay). The $150.00 fee is a standard plain text ad, nothing more. Additionally, if your timeshare sells on eBay there will be extra charges. eBay doesn't cater to timeshare buyers, nor do they hold timeshare tours. For the very few timeshares which eBay sells it will normally take 3+ months of eBay listings for get a buyer, that's over $450.00 plus commission plus deed transfer fees ($300.00). You would spend over $800.00 with eBay with no guarantee of a sale. With us there are no extra charges as we take care of the all filing & deed transfer fees! Most eBay sellers have excess financial baggage such as past maintenance fees, taxes and past due mortgages making an eBay timeshare purchase costly and unattractive.
What few timeshares are sold on eBay is usually sold at very low prices. If you search the eBay timeshare listings you will find that most of the timeshares with bids are at prices less than the eBay listing fee. The only people who look on eBay are those who are looking for "basement bargains".
Other than eBay's website, your timeshare will not receive exposure by any other method such as printed newsletters as we do at Second Hand Timeshares.
CraigsList: When posting a timeshare to CraigsList the major problem is what category you list in. CraigsList is not setup to give their listings national exposure. It is more designed for selling items to people in your local area. Example, you live in Los Angeles, CA and your timeshare is in Orlando, FL. Do you list your timeshare on the Los Angeles section or the Orlando section? If you list on the Los Angeles section, then only people living in LA are going to see your ad. If you listing on the Orlando section, then only people living in Orlando will see your ad. Lets face it, if you live in Orlando you most likely don't want to buy a timeshare in Orlando!
The way CraigsList's categorizes their items forsale is great for selling a washing machine or car but makes it nearly impossible to sell a timeshare or any item where you need nationwide exposure. Just like eBay, Craigslist items will only get exposure on the internet and not receive exposure in printed advertising.
The Timeshare Network: When listing your vacation timeshare on TheTimeshareNetwork.com you pay a low affordable fee. Your timeshare will be featured on our website where buyers worldwide searching for timeshares will see your timeshare.
Your timeshare will also be featured in our monthly printed magazine "The Timeshare Traveler". This magazine can be found in many resort destinations and available free at many resort counters as well as many convenience stores in the nationals largest resort areas.
To gain greater exposure The Timeshare Network uses aerial advertising (airplanes pulling banners) along the beaches of many tropical resort cities. We are the only Timeshare Marketing service which publishes our own printed magazine of listings and uses aerial advertising. We don't just put a listing on the internet and hope someone sees it. We go the extra mile.
