Timeshare companies can be ruthless when it comes to “upgrading” their current timeshare owners. They pull you into meetings just like the first one, talk to you for hours and hours, and wear you down. They have all kinds of sales tactics to get you to leave the meeting with more timeshare.
We have had so many clients face this issue, and unfortunately, many of them sign the dotted line and end up deeper in the timeshare trap. One couple we are currently helping to get out of their timeshare was convinced to upgrade multiple times, getting themselves to the point where they owed $48,000 to the timeshare company.
To paint a clear picture of what timeshare companies often do, we are going to share this couple’s journey below.
This couple owned 10 units, due to multiple upgrades, with one of those units in Gatlinburg, TN. They were in their Gatlinburg unit when the wildfires came through the Smoky Mountains in 2016. They barely made it out of the wildfire alive. They were given a 20 minute warning to leave the resort. When they had previously asked the resort about the danger, they told them it was nothing to worry about. All they had were the clothes on their backs and their dog. Everything else was left, just to get out. They told us about driving through the flames, praying they made it out alive.
Two months later, they were “invited” to come see the rebuilding plans of the timeshare company. Mind you they already had 10 units, due to the multiple upgrades, and owed $48,000 on the last upgrade. The timeshare salespeople attempted to get them to buy into the “newest” buildings that would be built, at the lowest price they would be before construction. That’s when they said enough is enough, came to our office and became our clients.
Timeshare sales is a “show.” This means that they will put all kinds of flashy things in front of you to get you to buy more timeshare. If they were to be direct and honest during their presentations, most people would not purchase a timeshare. We are here to help you cancel your timeshare if you were lied to or misled during the timeshare presentation.
