Salespeople should be good at their job, right? Yes, but at what cost? Many believe that timeshare sales people often take things too far when they are trying to secure a sale. From using highly pressurized tactics to throw off a client, to even attempting to intimidate them into making a compromised purchase. Timeshare salespeople prove this to be true time and time again, just ask Sam and Bella who were recent clients of ours.
Below is a written account from the married couple on their horrible experiences with the timeshare industry. We hope their story will help shed some light on the deception that takes place within the timeshare industry. Names of people and places have been changed and/or redacted for privacy reasons.
“We were offered a free weekend stay at a mountain resort if we attended their timeshare presentation. We had not been out that way as a family, so it seemed like a great idea at the time. We felt so much pressure at that meeting from the moment we walked in. I already felt uneasy leaving our son with their babysitters, but they insisted he would be fine and it would only last 90 minutes.”
This right here is a favorite line for timeshare salespeople, but everyone should know by now that their 90-minute presentations actually go on for multiple hours and are designed to exhaust you and wear you out.
“So we went into the meeting with the timeshare representative and when we got inside it seemed like an endless amount of tables filled with other couples being pressured by salespeople. I remember more than one representative really putting the pressure on us to purchase by showing us a large binder filled with all their resort destinations and another that kept emphasizing low monthly payments that honestly did not seem very low.”
Unfortunately, Sam and Bella were eventually convinced, or at least left to believe, there was no other option. They did indeed purchase a timeshare. The couple remembers regretting it immediately, but tried to make the best of it. Unfortunately, they would be reminded of how nasty this industry was every time they were invited to an update meeting for their unit.
“When it comes to issues since purchasing, I think back to three different update meetings that, to this day, are still very uncomfortable memories for my family and me. On the last one, we kept telling the young salesman no we didn’t want to upgrade, so he went and got a man who I assumed was his superior. This man was not kind to us at all and as he stood over our table, he pointed at us and said that we would not be leaving until we signed their contract. After hours of us still refusing, he finally left huffing and puffing. We vowed to never attend another "owner’s update meeting" again because they are not really updates, but just the latest sales pitches to get you to go more into debt.”
Owning a timeshare caused Sam & Bella’s family an immense amount of stress and it put them through a number of highly pressurized situations that they had no control over. After years of hardship with the timeshare industry, the couple finally reached out to us at Wesley Financial Group, LLC (“WFG”) for assistance. We are happy to inform you that we recently just closed on their timeshare termination, lifting the financial burden and stress from this family.*
