Timeshare Resale Complaints

Timeshare Resale Complaints

As many timeshare owners reach retirement age and have begun casually researching ways to potentially sell their vacation ownership units, the timeshare market has given rise to many unethical (and even illegal) timeshare resale companies in the recent past. And as the number of these companies has skyrocketed, timeshare resale complaints have also been on the rise, with so many complaints now flooding the FTC and other consumer affairs bureaus that timeshare resale has quickly become public enemy number one for both government consumer protection entities and uninformed timeshare owners alike. Fortunately, Westgate is here to help with some solid, well-researched resources that can help any timeshare owner navigate the shifting landscape of timeshare resale reviews and uncover the real negative complaints that many timeshare resale companies have become so proficient at hiding or suppressing through various methods on the internet.
