Timeshare Specialists Reviews
Timeshare Specialists’ reviews are primarily positive, but most are concentrated on one platform, which did seem odd due to the scarcity of their reviews on other platforms. The majority of the timeshare exit companies over promise and under deliver. And without profile photos or video testimonials, it makes you question the authenticity of their customer feedback.
As we looked more into the company, we immediately noticed Timeshare Specialists have a distinctive website design. Aside from its awards and credentials, the company offers 3 different services. For owners looking to transfer your title quickly with little to no effort, they provide transfer services. Again the company relies on its network to find a suitable owner to take over your timeshare.
The next service separates Timeshare Specialists from their competitors. The company offers timeshare buy-back programs just like some of the larger developers. For owners with a Marriott, Hyatt, or Hilton timeshare, they’re willing to make you a handsome offer. But remember, read through your entire contract so you can avoid any hidden fees.
The last service the company offers is Timeshare resale tips and tricks. Timeshare Specialists provide helpful articles and reviews on their ‘Blog’ page. This is a great place to learn how you can resell your timeshare successfully. Unfortunately, the company makes a bold statement that says:
Our team found a red flag here because they recommend refinancing your mortgage. Most banks won’t refinance a timeshare because refinancing is a liability on its own. Timeshare contracts can charge up to 20%-30% interest on your mortgage, and they come with ridiculous yearly fees. If a company ever tells you to refinance your timeshare, stay away!
Timeshare specialists do offer a “Timeshare Scam Hotline” where owners can call and report any information regarding a potential scam. They also provide a ‘Timeshare Scam DataBase,’ which shows a confirmed list of scams that owners can reference if they encounter an exit company. We always commend companies that provide up-to-date information that can help timeshare owners. Some Timeshare Specialists reviews mention how the company has a ‘Blog’ page with articles on topics like timeshare resales, selling your timeshare, getting rid of a timeshare, and why your timeshare isn’t selling.
Any company willing to go to these lengths to provide quality knowledge for their viewers is a positive sign of legitimacy. As our team has mentioned multiple times before, selling your timeshare can turn ugly if you’re not careful. Don’t believe us? Try sites such as ebay.com or redweek.com. You don’t think your timeshare is worth a dollar? Neither did the current listers on eBay or craigslist. The timeshares that tend to retain their value are located in the most exclusive areas like Disneyland and Aruba. If a company says they can sell your timeshare with no issues, we recommend getting that information in writing first. It can be a bumpy road before you find an interested buyer.
As our team continued to review Timeshare Specialists, we noticed there is no mention of their exit process or how they can help you out of your timeshare. No past customer reviews mention the process either. After going through various Timeshare Specialists reviews, we did determine the company does not have upfront fees for their services. This is excellent because we never recommend paying anyone up-front. This has led to countless timeshare exit scams.
Our team always recommends you work with companies that offer an escrow payment option, so you stay protected. Escrow eliminates all up-front fees by involving a 3rd party account to hold onto any fees. You hold the exit company accountable here because they don’t get paid until they have successfully canceled your timeshare. Why would you take the risk of paying thousands up-front when you could just hire a company that offers escrow? A 100% Money-Back Guarantee doesn’t mean you’re invincible. If the exit company decides to file for bankruptcy and run off with your money, you’re out of luck!
