I received a phone call from Will asking if I would like to rent or sell my timeshare. Of course I thought, "sure, wonder what I can get for it?" Well Will began to tell me anything that I would like to hear.
Will began by saying, "it's your timeshare, what do you want for it?" Along with also saying that "in my area" timeshares are going for $15,000, $16,000 easy. He also said, "why don't we put it up for $16,000 and if you come down, then you will still have plenty left over". When we discussed renting the unit, again, he was overly optimistic that I could get whatever my asking price would be because "in my area" there is a HUGE need for timeshares.
Now I understand that Will is trying to sell his service, but the part that got me the most is him being so adamant in the fact that I would have no problem in selling or renting my timeshare. He even went as far as saying that it will go within 4-6 weeks, easy.
Will wanted almost $1,200 for this service, but I told him that I could not pay that much so he went to $400. Now of course we all know the story, 4-6 weeks went by and no phone call, nothing. When I called Will back to ask how it was going, he would not even take my calls nor call me back when I left a message, and by the way, his voicemail signs off by saying "have a blessed day".
After I made my complaint about Timeshares By Owner, it went no where. I sent emails that were very rude and did get a response from Kevin White the Customer Service Mgr saying that he could probably do something for me to help make my unit rent or sell. Well to this day, nothing.
Timeshares By Owner is a complete scam, I urge anyone to please DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!
