If you do a search of the so-called mainstrem press over the past year or two, you'll find all sorts of "Stay Away From Timeshare" pieces. These pieces have a few things in common:
1) They are all written by writers who have never experienced a timeshare vacation
2) They are all writen by writers who assume that just because some timeshares unfortunately still emply outdated and heavy-handed marketing and sales techniques , the product can't be any good
3) They are all written by writers who still (sigh) are quick to condemn timeshare by saying that they are lousy investments, but have yet to talk about the "value" of 10 years worth of hote receipts
In truth, there are some excellent reasons NOT to purchase a timeshare. Here are a few of them:
1) You don't understand what you are buying. If you can't understand it from the salesperson, the resort or the reseller, you are not going to understand it enough to use it to your advantage
2) You don't vacation, see no need for vacation, have no plans to vacation and/or don't enjoy vacation
3) When you do vacation, you typically spend less than $80 per night and less than 7 nights per year
4) Paying for your timehsare will significantly reduce the quality of your life
Now that we got that out of the way, we'll concentrate on what timeshare is, what it can do for you and 10 reasons that you should buy a timeshare.
Starting tomorow, we'll be listing these reasons and as always, invite your comments.
