Benefits Of A Timeshare Trust

Many timeshare owners will consider, at some point, passing their timeshare to children or family members when they die. Many, if not most, timeshares are real property interests. How you hold title to your property affects how title is transferred upon your death.

For more information on the benefits of setting up a Timeshare Trust, please read the full article, initially published in TimeSharing Today magazine.

Effective RedWeek.com Search Methods

It's now easier than ever to search RedWeek.com for just the right timeshare rental or resale. We've added a Google search engine to our home page so you can search for key words such as "oceanfront" or "platinum week". Another great use of this search engine is to find the location of pertinent information on our site, such as the Timeshare Glossary or Terms of Service pages.

Owners, this is a great opportunity to get your ad seen! Be sure to update the "Details" section of your posting with any key words or phrases that will drive more traffic to your advertisement. Do you have a "ski week"? Then say so! Does your unit have it's own private pool? Include it!

If you are looking for a rental, resale, or exchange with certain availability dates, then click on our "Advanced Search" link on the Timeshares for Rent & Sale, and Sell or Rent Your Timeshares, pages. The Advanced Search function also allows you to search by number of bedrooms, or the number of people a unit sleeps. While you will need to enter a location, or resort name, your search parameters can be as broad as "California" or "Hyatt".

Member Review
"…our unit C&D was lavishly furnished and within walking distance to the restaurants and everything. We loved the food at the grill and the condo and didn't leave the grounds but once our whole week. We were surprised to find water in the hot tub and it running and ready when we got there. What a gorgeous place. It far exceeded our expectations for comfort and luxury and the furnishings were beautiful. After reading all the reviews I was stunned. I thought I must be in the wrong place because someone is nuts! The place we bought couldn't have been more beautiful and so great for a family gathering. Something for everyone! I fell in love with the large shower room upstairs! So light and large and airy!"
