As a general rule of thumb, it's normal to expect to reap benefits from large financial investments. That was not the case for Reginald and Camille with their hefty investment into a timeshare property. Despite pouring so much of their hard-earned money into a vacation resort, they constantly had issues when it came time to go on their vacation.
Timeshare owners of 15 years, Reginald and Camille, are sharing their story with us today about their experiences with the timeshare industry. We hope the telling of their experiences will shed a light on the constant wrongdoings that take place in the timeshare industry. Some names and places have been omitted due to privacy concerns.
“Over the years, just trying to make use of our timeshare became such a burden for our family. It became so difficult to book the vacation week we wanted and even getting a location that we preferred was too much. And to think of all the money that we had put into that resort for over a decade, we felt that longtime owners should not have the many issues that we went through.”
Timeshares are vacation properties that timeshare companies describe as “the best way to vacation. Of course, resorts hype up their services and products, but are timeshares really the best way to vacation? Ask a timeshare owner and you may hear a different perspective.
“The first time we invested in a timeshare, we were in one of their presentations and they just made a timeshare sound like a great idea and the price was in the range of what we could afford. So we went through with the purchase and all seemed well at the beginning. But every time we used the timeshare, we had to go to another one of their presentations. That’s when things went sour.”
Why do timeshare resorts still have owners attend these presentations if they have already purchased a timeshare? Well, to sell them more, of course!
“After upgrading our timeshare, the process of booking just a single trip became the most troublesome thing to accomplish. This upgrade cost even more than our initial timeshare, yet it only made things worse. Not to mention, our annual maintenance fees more than doubled in cost. They described the upgrade as making everything easier for us and would save us money in the long run, but it was far from achieving either of those for us!”
Reginald and Camille’s timeshare mortgage and maintenance costs had ballooned to a price that they could no longer afford. For the cost that they were paying for their vacation property, they should have been enjoying the most luxurious trips all over the world. Instead, they struggled to even book one trip a year and could never go where they wanted.
When the rising costs became too much for them to even try, the couple reached out to Wesley Financial Group, LLC. At Wesley they were able to get assistance in canceling their timeshare agreement and after only one year, they are officially timeshare-free!*
