Timeshares on Craigslist

The evolution of the Internet has been so good to so many second hand or resale industries. Online bulletin boards afford an amazing opportunity for users to buy, sell, and trade almost anything like never before. In this article we’ll take a look at the Craigslist timeshare buying and selling opportunities that are out there, and how to best navigate the site and potential scammers.

First of all, let me say that whenever you’re dealing with anything on Craigslist there is unfortunately a good chance that someone is going to try to scam you in some way or another. One good but incomplete tip to avoid this is that if they don’t seem to have a good grasp of your native language, that’s a red flag. Sell My Timeshare Guide advises you to proceed with caution. You should take advantage of Craigslist’s own warnings and tips about cashier check scams and the like. This article cannot deal with that matter in full at all. So educate yourself.

That said, there are still thousands of legitimate offers to buy or sell a Craigslist timeshare in the forum. Usually, people will either post what they’re selling in the General For Sale section or the Real Estate – By Owner section. There is no actual Craigslist Timeshare section so people put their ads wherever they deem appropriate.

There is also no general consensus on where it is best to say advertise an Orlando timeshare. Should the owner put it in the Orlando Craigslist? Or should they put it in the New York City Craigslist, because that’s where they actually live? I favor putting it in the forum that corresponds to where the timeshare actually is located. If everyone just did it that way, then at least you would know that if you’re looking for a Mexico timeshare, you could just look at the Mexican Craigslist. Nevertheless, if you’re looking to buy a timeshare on Craigslist, you would be well suited to look around in a variety of “locations” to try to find the best deal.

So once again let me just reiterate that there are many legitimate deals to be found on “the mother of all online bulletin boards”, but you must keep a very watchful eye out for scammers. Proceed with caution whether you’re a buyer or seller (or even a trader), and make sure you really have “vetted” the person or company you’re about to do business with. But at the same time, remember that it can and has been a viable method of exchange for thousands of people.

    Show your dog that you love him. As is the case with most things in life, owners often pay
    more attention to the bad behavior than the good. This could lead to trouble down the line.
    Instead, make sure you pet or praise your dog five times more often than you scold him.
    Your dog is much more likely to showcase the proper behavior if you do so.
