The current economy, high airfares, and increasing gas prices make it hard for anyone to budget for a winter vacation. But who says you have to go far to have a great holiday getaway? Some of the best unexplored regions can be found in your own state. If you live in Denver, head north to Vail; if you're in Charleston, drive south to Hilton Head; livin' in Los Angeles - how about Tahoe? Great deals at these locations and more can be found on RedWeek.com.
RedWeek now has a new partner who offers a full-service timeshare resale option - an alternative to doing it yourself on RedWeek.com. If you go this route, you'll get a market valuation, a complete review of your ownership with a sales professional, and you won't have to worry about advertising, answering questions from buyers, or closing the sale.
This option is currently offered for a select list of resorts. If your resort is on the list, just click the "Sell using our full-service option" from the resort's page to get started.
You've found the perfect timeshare rental on RedWeek and have made an offer. The owner has asked for cash up-front, but you are hesitant. How can you ensure you are protected when renting a timeshare over the Internet? RedWeek.com has a couple of suggestions that will help protect both the renter and owner.
Use an escrow service - First American Title provides both rental and resale escrow services to RedWeek members. This is the best way to protect your interests and ensure you get what you are paying for.
Sign a rental agreement - RedWeek.com provides suggested steps for privately managing your transaction, including a basic sample rental agreement for the owner and renter to sign. The rental agreement acts as a contract between the two parties and will be invaluable should a dispute arise. Please note that RedWeek.com is not involved in any privately managed transaction and will not mediate disputes between owner and renter unless the escrow process is used.
