Bill and Scarlett C. had extended family members who were timeshare owners so they felt like they at least knew a little bit about these vacation properties. Well, turns out they had no clue about what a timeshare really was because what they purchased felt far away from what they were sold on.
The following is a written account from this retired couple on their long-endured experience with the timeshare industry and why it does not live up to how they presented it . Names of people and companies have been changed or omitted due to privacy concerns.
“We decided to attend a timeshare sales presentation because we had family members who were owners that seemed to enjoy them. We did not go in with the intention of purchasing a timeshare that day, we just wanted to learn more about how they worked. Well, what we thought we learned that day, all turned out to be untrue.”
Timeshare resorts have gained a reputation for fabricating the truth sometimes in order to make a sell here and there. During their sales presentations, rarely do they thoroughly discuss the important aspects of a timeshare agreement, but instead just focus on any selling points they think will hook the next buyer.
“It was very high pressured in their approach to selling us on a timeshare. We were offered hundreds of dollars in resort credits if we purchased that day. We were told we could rent out our unit for a side income. One salesperson said the company could buy back our unit if we ever change our mind. All of it was lies.”
When Bill and Scarlett left the sales presentation, they instantly regretted purchasing a timeshare. Over time, that feeling only grew stronger.
“Our timeshare ownership was completely based on lies and deception from beginning to end. There was absolutely no benefit to owning a timeshare for us and it honestly felt like a scam the whole time. We threw away so much money into this when we had other financial obligations that were not able to be met because of all the associated fees with the timeshare.”
Those hidden fees add up fast. After just a couple of years into owning a timeshare, Bill and Scarlett were way in over their heads financially. They knew something had to change but they received no help from the resort. The couple did their own research and came to the conclusion of calling Wesley Financial Group, LLC for their expertly crafted timeshare termination services.
Not only was WFG able to cancel the couple’s timeshare agreement, but they also relieved the family of close to $10,000 in mortgage and maintenance fee debt.* They can now finally enjoy their retirement without the stress of a timeshare.
