How Much is a Timeshare?
So What is the Price of a Timeshare?
A timeshare is distinct from a traditional home purchase. Instead of a prolonged buying process that might take weeks or months, a timeshare is typically sold within a matter of hours following a tour. This expedited sales process is often driven by high-pressure sales tactics, with approximately 99% of buyers making the purchase decision on the same day they tour the property. These decisions are frequently influenced by “Today Only” pricing offers, leading to a broad range of prices for similar or identical units.
While a select few might choose to invest in premium options, such as a penthouse that can cost in the six-figure range, the majority of buyers encounter a series of sales representatives, managers, and even vice presidents during the buying process. This layered sales approach is designed to maximize the revenue from each potential buyer. As a result, the VPG (Volume per Guest), which represents the average sales value per guest, typically hovers around $22,000. This figure is corroborated by data released by the developer association representing the timeshare industry.
