You fell for the sales pitch for the luxury timeshare on the beach. Now you’re in over your head – and not in balmy ocean water. Don’t panic: you might be able to get out without ruining your credit.
First, know you’re not the first person to succumb to a sunny sales pitch. Many who buy timeshares end up regretting the purchase, says Michael Finn, a consumer attorney in Florida who handles timeshare issues.
When you buy directly from a resort, a timeshare can cost $20,000 to $40,000 or more – an amount some consumers finance with a loan, Finn says.
