That’s exactly what it did to Kevin and Georgia H. though. It was going well for the couple at first, but everything changed when they were pushed into upgrading their timeshare. Before too long, the timeshare was taking away more money from the couple than any other expense, even their home mortgage.
Kevin and Georgia are sharing their story with us today to warn others not to make the same mistake they did in trusting timeshare salespeople. In the story below, we have changed or omitted the name of companies and people due to privacy concerns.
“There was a lot about timeshares that the salespeople did not tell us about. We thought we made out pretty good after our first purchase and enjoyed using the timeshare for some time. Then a new company took over the resort, and we were called to come in for a mandatory owners meeting at the resort.”
When timeshare salespeople call and ask you to attend an owners meeting or an upgrade meeting, prepare for just another sales pitch. Many times owners feel like these meetings will be beneficial to them to learn more about timeshares, come to find it’s just more lies and deceit.
“At the meeting, they made it seem that we had to upgrade our agreement. It was not an option. That or the timeshare would just become useless. They never mentioned the rising maintenance fees annually or how much more difficult it would become to book our vacations. Everything after the upgrade just made the timeshare a disaster.”
When Kevin and Georgia upgraded their timeshare, it all fell apart for them. Before the upgrade, they were able to use their timeshare every year, but afterward, they could never book anything. They were unable to use their timeshare even one time during their last four years as owners.
“We were paying so much more in extra fees now and could not even afford to travel because we already paid the resort so much at the top of the year. We hardly would have any extra money left over after paying the timeshare mortgage and annual fees, and it caused us to fall behind on our house mortgage.”
The increased costs of Kevin and Georgia’s timeshare were affecting finances in all aspects of their lives. They were falling behind on important bills, such as their mortgage and their children’s tuition loans. These problems did not exist until after the timeshare upgrade.
“We remembered how the timeshare salespeople told us that our timeshare would be inherited by our children when we passed. They made this out to seem like this great thing, but now we were terrified of this happening.”
Kevin and Georgia knew their children did not want their timeshare, nor could they afford the costs as they were constantly increasing. This is what caused the couple to find a way out of their timeshare agreement.
