Tired of paying retail for a vacation rental?

Acquainting yourself with the world of "time-share resale" will be worthwhile (and may result in "bragging rights" who doesn't relish getting a deal for 50 cents on the dollar or better!).

What's the difference between time-shares and fractionals? With time-shares, you buy time on a property; with fractionals, you receive time AND equity.

That said, becoming savvy about time-shares before "trading" or "buying" will pay off. There's plenty to learn and there are tips you'll be glad to collect. Here's one mentioned in a Newsweek (January 20, 2003) article: "Call the resort to be sure the person selling the time-share really is the owner."

P.S. Here's a "secret" to check out

Developers of high end time-shares, or "residence clubs," will usually rent out their unsold units like regular hotel rooms. This means you get access to luxury without an upfront outlay of several hundred thousand dollars. (Did we mention the pleasure won't be cheap?)

Here is a sampling of time-share resorts renting rooms by the night:

Four Seasons
Abercrombie & Kent Concerge Villas
The Phillips Club
