While the BBB ranks many companies, few are actually accredited. Contrary to popular belief, accreditation does not guarantee an A rating. Actually, accreditation gives the BBB more access to information about the company so they can give a more accurate rating.

Unlike other companies who have made it their business to attack the timeshare industry, CRS has spent the last seven years developing positive relationships with developers to help ensure seamless transfers. Large companies like Festiva Development group and regionals such as Inn Season Resorts are just a couple of the resort developers that CRS shares relationships with. This is just one more reason to trust Certified Resort Services with your timeshare transfer.
Many timeshare owners have purchased or converted their fixed or floating week to a "points" based system. This is to give owners flexibility of usage beyond that of a fixed or floating week. But points can be confusing. While a week at a prime Wyndham resort could be over 300,000 points, a week at a Diamond Resorts International resort may be as little as a few thousand. And if you exchange through RCI, point values between 6000 and 100,000 points are commonplace. So don't live in confusion. Learn how to use your points based program to maximize your ownership. Below you will find links and information on the most common timeshare points programs. And if you don't see yours? Email us and we will research and add it! Please note that some of these links may have been updated since the time they were posted. We are currently working to populate this area with relevant content and our list will be expanded daily.

One of the main reasons for consumer dissatisfaction with their vacation membership or timeshare is “inability to use”. The truth of the matter is that many of us fail to “read the directions” on many of the things that we buy. It took me 4 months to figure out that my phone had 100 spots for speed dial, and even longer to realize that talk to text actually worked. When you go to purchase a timeshare, you are at a “sales presentation”. And that is exactly what it is. Your representative is there to tell you the key points and highlights of timeshare, travel club and right to use ownership. It is really no different than going to your local Best Buy and finding out about the new flat screen television. But in order to maximize our experience with our new TV (or timeshare), we need to read the directions. Almost every timeshare company, travel club, HOA or resort developer has staff that are more than willing to answer your questions and help you get the most out of your ownership. Before transferring or selling your timeshare, you should ask yourself these questions:
Many people have found that there is more to their timeshare or vacation ownership plan than they originally thought. By doing a little bit of homework, they have found that they have a renewed interest in their ownership and feel the excitement they felt on the presentation that led them to ownership.
We are providing you with a set of links to many different timeshare resorts, vacation club and HOA websites so that you can determine if continued ownership is right for you. You may be surprised at what you find!
The subject of timeshare resales comes up again and again every year. Whether it is on bulletin board websites, at industry gatherings or with authorities at the state and federal level, owners hear about resale companies on a consistent basis. So what is the deal? It is actually pretty simple. While there are some amazing timeshare units out there, in highly desirable locations, very few can actually be resold for the price they were originally sold at. Only a small percentage command a reasonable price. Thousands of units are listed on eBay.com every week, and you will notice that many sell for a dollar (or less) and many more go unsold. There are listing sites like sellmytimesharenow.com and redweek.com, who have created a substantial user base. But many owners have unrealistic expectations of what they can get for their timeshare, and many of these go unsold as well. There is really no way to tell how many were sold, and you can't find out how many of the eBay transactions actually "completed". For the most part, the real "investment" into and value of timeshare is the years of enjoyment you and your family have during the course of your ownership. But you should understand that going in. For every 4th of July, 2 bedroom, oceanfront unit in Myrtle Beach, there is a January studio. And even prime weeks don't always sell. The limited timeshare resale market is a fickle one. So be wary when looking at resales companies. Do your homework and don't make snap decisions over the phone. Below, we have posted an article directly from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regarding timeshare resale. Take a moment to read it. It may save you some money.
This article is from the website of the Federal Trade Commission https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0073-timeshares-and-vacation-plans
If you’re thinking of selling a timeshare, the FTC cautions you to question resellers — real estate brokers and agents who specialize in reselling timeshares. They may claim that the market in your area is “hot” and that they’re overwhelmed with buyer requests. Some may even say that they have buyers ready to purchase your timeshare, or promise to sell your timeshare within a specific time.
If you want to sell your deeded timeshare, and a company approaches you offering to resell your timeshare, go into skeptic mode:
If you want an idea of the value of a timeshare that you’re interested in buying or selling, consider using a timeshare appraisal service. The appraiser should be licensed in the state where the service is located. Check with the state to see if the license is current.
Before you sign a contract with a reseller, get the details of the terms and conditions of the contract. It should include the services the reseller will perform; the fees, commissions, and other costs you must pay and when; whether you can rent or sell the timeshare on your own at the same time the reseller is trying to sell your unit; the length or term of the contract to sell your timeshare; and who is responsible for documenting and closing the sale.
If the deal isn’t what you expected or wanted, don’t sign the contract. Negotiate changes or find another reseller.
Selling a timeshare is a lot like selling any other piece of real estate. But you also should check with the resort to determine restrictions, limits, or fees that could affect your ability to resell or transfer ownership. Then, make sure that your paperwork is in order. You’ll need:
