SellMyTimeshareNow Review

Last updated: November 16, 2016 - 12:20pm EST

So far, we've given you an introduction to how timeshares work, and told you about SellMyTimeshareNow's role as a timeshare resale network.  But the question needs to be asked: why use SellMyTimeshareNow to buy, rent, sell, or rent out a timeshare, as opposed to using alternatives?  We'll outline some of the possible reasons you may or may not want to make use of SellMyTimeshareNow's services.

Pros

  • Great for all kinds of timeshare transactions -- Whether you're looking to buy, sell, rent, or rent out a timeshare, SellMyTimeshareNow has ways to make it happen. At the very least, they can put you in contact with someone who can make it happen.

  • Size equals exposure and choice -- SellMyTimeshareNow is one of the largest timeshare resale networks of its kind, with over 50,000 timeshares for sale or rent from over 5,000 resorts worldwide.  It also gets as many as 10,000 unique visitors daily, which means more people who might find your timeshare advertisement and want to do business with you!

  • Get away in a hurry -- If you're looking to vacation immediately, SellMyTimeshareNow has a "Book Now" feature, as well as a “Last-Minute Rentals” page.  These allow you to rent a timeshare on the spot for a fixed length of time and at a fixed rate.  No muss, no fuss! Just book your stay and pack your bags!

  • Need the extra info? -- In addition to acting as a portal for advertising timeshares for sale or rent, SellMyTimeshareNow has lots of extra resources on how timeshares work.  From common questions asked by people looking to sell their timeshares to tips on avoiding shady timeshare deals and promotions, SellMyTimeshareNow will make sure that you are as informed as possible about the ins and outs of timeshare transactions.  It even has a function that lets you estimate the market value of your timeshare!

Cons

  • I know what to do, but how do I do it? -- Though SellMyTimeshareNow has lots of helpful resources on buying, selling, renting, or renting out timeshares, they notably lack a centralized "help" section for how to use their website.  Fortunately, TechBoomers is here to walk you through the basic functions!

  • Take it offline -- With the exception of the "Book Now" feature, most timeshare transactions on SellMyTimeshareNow have to be completed off the website.  You will usually have to get in contact with a property owner/manager, a SellMyTimeshareNow agent, or both.  After all, buying or selling a timeshare is a complicated process, but SellMyTimeshareNow can make it less so.

The bottom line: 7.5/10

SellMyTimeshareNow is one of the best resources around when it comes to buying, renting, selling, or renting out a timeshare on the secondary market.  It's one of the biggest timeshare marketplaces of its kind, and is full of all sorts of information on how timeshares work… including how to make timeshares cost-effective alternative travel accommodations for your vacation.  Plus, if you're in a hurry to get away, SellMyTimeshareNow features timeshare owners who are willing to rent out their property to you for a fixed length of time and price!  Just book and go!

One of the major drawbacks of SellMyTimeshareNow is that almost all of its functions need to be completed off the website, unlike other common online marketplaces (such as eBay or Amazon).  You often have to exchange phone calls and/or emails with a SellMyTimeshareNow resale agent, a timeshare owner/manager, or both.  However, this is largely to account for the complexity of timeshare transactions, and to make sure that the advertising, sale, and/or purchase process goes as smoothly as possible. 

Our other nitpick with SellMyTimeshareNow is that, while it contains a lot of information about timeshares, it doesn't include much help regarding how to actually use its various services.  That's why TechBoomers wrote this course to show you how the main functions work!

Is SellMyTimeshareNow legitimate?

Yes, SellMyTimeshareNow is a legitimate company and has been in business since 2003. It is also one of the largest and most active timeshare resale and rental marketplaces. More to the point, SellMyTimeshareNow has never had a case involving fraudulent timeshare activity brought against it in court.

However, keep in mind that not all companies have the same record as SellMyTimeshareNow, and that timeshare scams can still happen. So if you choose to go with another timeshare resale company, be sure to read our article on how to avoid timeshare scams.
