WorldMark Resale Value Stabilizes In ’12, Brokerages Cite Improving Economy

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — Selling Timeshares, Inc., a licensed Real Estate brokerage that specializes in WorldMark resale, has done a recent analysis of their 2012 WorldMark resales, and has concluded that WorldMark values are holding steady in the New Year.

The company has recently released many new WorldMark for sale by owner listings on their redesigned website and timeshare blog. The trend in pricing for these newly listed contracts, along with the recently closed transactions the company has reviewed, are all pointing to a more stable year for the timeshare’s resale value.

David Van Norman, a licensed agent at Selling Timeshares, Inc. was quoted saying, “This is a huge turn-around from the past few years, where the beginning quarter of each year saw dropping listing prices, and even lower actual selling prices.”

In recent years, the resale team at Selling Timeshares, Inc. has seen the value change dramatically, and has been waiting to see the WorldMark timeshares' value stabilize.

“We’ve seen the value come from a high point of approximately $.85 per annual credit just a few years ago, where now some accounts are sold for less than half of that price,” David Van Norman added.

Selling Timeshares, Inc. new resale team is taking an optimistic outlook on the resale value. In a time where the housing markets have settled from their nose-dive a few years ago, so too will timeshare property values finally stabilize. Not only is financing finally creeping back to affordable, but many Americans feel the recession waning, and thus are returning to their normal schedules of taking the vacations they so desperately needed, but have been labeled as “too expensive” or “opulent.”

In a recent analysis on the importance of vacation for overall health, Selling Timeshares, Inc., has spoken out in defense of travel as a catalyst for a healthy, fulfilled workforce and has always been in favor of using travel to broaden one's horizons and develop a better sense of well-being.

The resale team’s main focus is now on providing the transfer services so many current owners, and soon to be buyers need, but don’t know what broker can be trusted with the transfer of their sale or purchase. The company has had a long history of speaking out against timeshare fraud, and has continually praised the Florida Attorney General’s office for the recent passage of the Timeshare Resale Accountability Act, which aimed to end the rampant timeshare scams operating in that state.
