You’ve probably heard already that timeshares and high taxes go hand in hand. This is mostly true, although the amount you have to pay for each timeshare differs, and there’s no clear set of rules you can use to get a totally accurate estimate on how much you should be expected to pay.
Unfortunately, these taxes are quite high compared to the amount of time you are allowed to use your timeshare. Even if you have a blast during your vacation, most experts will agree that the investment simply isn’t worthwhile and that owners should consider getting rid of their timeshares as soon as possible in most cases – especially if they have a lot of financial problems.
The #1 reason for selling timeshares is that timeshares are pieces of high-revenue property that you barely use. In most cases, the prices are inflated because of the proximity of the property to various beaches or landmarks. Also, the available amenities will add to the price in most cases.
Another good reason is that, aside from paying huge taxes because of the high value of the property, you will also need to cover expenses such as maintenance and repairs. Even though you’re only given a limited amount of time to spend there, you still have to contribute if doors or windows are replaced or if the plumbing needs fixing.
