Ask the Timeshare Crusader

Lisa Ann Schrier Our "Ask the Timeshare Crusader" series continues this month with a question from Donald:

You probably get asked this a lot, but what is the difference between a timeshare that is bought from the developer and one that is bought secondhand?

Thanks for your question. It can be confusing. After all, there is really no such thing as a "new" or "used" timeshare except in the case of buying something pre-construction (which I do NOT recommend) … Read Lisa's full answer »

If you have questions for the Timeshare Crusader, please post them on our dedicated Forums page, or e-mail them to support@redweek.com.

Member Review:

"Just returned from our 4th vacation at Greensprings in 4 years. I cannot say enough about this resort and its location. The units are well-kept and nicely decorated. Everything you need for cooking you will find in the kitchen - and restaurants aplenty if you don't. The master bed & bath is awesome with king size bed and corner jacuzzi tubs."
