Veteran, Marvin M., never thought a timeshare would get so expensive. He and his wife, Pauline, were under the impression that this would be an investment that would save them money over the years. It actually did the complete opposite of that, and the couple suffered for years because of it.
Luckily, there was light at the end of this tunnel for Marvin and Pauline, but for years they felt hopeless. Here’s a firsthand account of the timeshare experience from Marvin and Pauline and how they were finally able to escape it. In the story below, we have changed or omitted the name of companies and people due to privacy concerns.
“We thought this timeshare would be a great get-away for vacation trips, and it was presented to us as a property with real value. Like any other piece of real estate. Well, unfortunately, that was far, far from the truth. ”
Timeshare salespeople blatantly lied to Marvin and Pauline. They misled the couple into believing what a timeshare really was. Instead of growing in value every year as the salespeople had promised, the timeshare actually lost all its value the moment they bought it, and it cost them thousands of dollars every year after that.
“We were extremely disappointed to find out our yearly maintenance costs were going up every year. We tried to bring this to the attention of the resort because they never mentioned that would happen. So we got a phone call from a resort representative who kept pushing us to upgrade our agreement so the maintenance costs would stop increasing. It required another down payment, but they assured us the costs would not go up anymore. More lies!”
Some timeshare salespeople just don’t know when to stop. When a client reaches out for help, all they do is worsen the situation. Now, Marvin and Pauline had an even worse agreement in place.
“Now that we are retired, this timeshare became such a burden for us and we just could not afford it anymore. All the maintenance fees and special assessment costs, which were never explained to us, were too much. Rather than a benefit, the timeshare was only a financial liability for us.”
Just about everything that Marvin and Pauline were told regarding their timeshare, turned out to be lies. It only caused them to stress and worry about how they could afford the finances for it. So it is no surprise they were actively searching for a way out.
