Tip 9 - Ten Year SavingsDoes a timeshare really make sense ...
So what happens if I want to sell...
In the early days of timesharing (pre-1980), the developers often used the ten year
savings formula for establishing timeshare value. Since timeshares are not an investment
and potential owners should be looking at timeshares as a long term usage product,
the ten year savings guideline is one way to determine the resale value of a timeshare.
Equivalent hotel/day - $ 150 Timeshare maintenance - ( 40) Hotel savings - 110 7 day savings - $ 770 $5,500 4% 1992 CD loss - ( 220) Adjusted annual savings - $ 550 Ten Year Timeshare Value - $5,500/wk Example notes: 1. Your timeshare will pay for itself in ten years. Usage and resale after 10 years is all profit. 2. If you use your CD savings for your annual vacations, your savings will be gone in less than 6.5 years. 3. It is assumed that any increase in maintenance, will be offset by a similar increase in hotel rates.
