Timeshare upgrades are sold as solutions to any and all problems that timeshare owners experience, but look closer and it appears to just be another waste of money. Ask former timeshare owners, Bobby and Marcia, and they’ll tell you the latter. This couple will be sharing their story today and how they got roped into the world of constant timeshare upgrades which set them back financially for years to come.
The timeshare industry continues to get away with schemes such as this one and nothing is being done about it. We hope Bobby and Marcia’s words will shed light on this subject matter and heed warning to others. Names of people and places have been changed or omitted due to privacy concerns.
“Our whole timeshare experience was overrated. They pitched us on the idea of our family going on our dream vacations every year, but what we actually got were trips to the least exciting places and extra costs that made it vastly overpriced. Our first sales presentation was gruesome and exhausting, but it was the upgrade meetings that really did us in.”
Many timeshare owners may find themselves in upgrade meetings if they are having particular issues with their property. But sometimes, these salespeople go out of the way and recruit owners to these meetings just as they do for those first sales presentations.
“Our first upgrade meeting consisted of them telling us our current agreement would only allow for us to use the timeshare every other year. Initially, we were fine with that, but then they made it seem like it was a mistake and we could get one to use every year at almost the same price. That may have been true for the downpayment but we soon noticed our monthly mortgage payments were much higher than before.”
Timeshare salespeople have a way of making you feel like there is only one option and it’s theirs. This leaves many potential buyers in uncompromising positions when it comes to making such an expensive investment.
“Our second and last upgrade was into a points system. We were told the weekly system would be gone and no longer an option so we practically had to go the points route. We did not like the idea of using points compared to our weekly agreement, so we would have never agreed to do it if we knew it was an option. After this upgrade, we were never able to book any more trips because it became such a hassle. While before the upgrade, it was expensive, but at least we got to use it.”
With countless upgrades, Bobby and Marcia were now in a timeshare nightmare. The mortgage cost and maintenance fees had shot through the roof and now they are unable to even use the property. In search of a way out of this disaster of an agreement, the couple heard of Wesley Financial Group, LLC. They were looking for a company that would solve all their problems and that is exactly what we did!*
“Wesley helped us completely terminate our timeshare agreement. All within a year at that!* We could not be more grateful for the help and would highly recommend them to anyone else who fell into a timeshare scam.”
