When buying a resale or pre-owned timeshare they can usually be bought at a fraction of the cost of a new unit. However, make sure you do not just the “math” but the entire “homework” as well. Check the unit out well so you will not be surprised by unusual upcoming maintenance costs. Understanding all of the variables and your rights as a timeshare owner will give you more self-confidence while negotiating for the desired property.
Under no circumstances buy a timeshare when under the "pressure" of a timeshare salesperson. Refuse all the "wonderful" incentives they are offering, and simply tell them you are going to check into the resale offer. Resales will probably be as much as 90% below the asking price of the high pressure salesperson!
