Timeshares and the Bad Economy

The bad economy will have an affect on any timeshares that you own, and that affect will not be good. Even if you have been responsible and have always paid your timeshare fees and timeshare loans on time, you are going to end up paying more because of those people who don't:

1. Your fees will increase. When people stop paying their timeshare fees and their timeshare ends up getting foreclosed on, the timeshare resort loses money. They have to make up that lost money somewhere and it is usually in the form of higher fees for all the other timeshare owners.

2. You will Likely see timeshare surcharge fees: With less of a base to support the timeshare and a credit crunch that is making it hard to finance the timeshare projects the timeshare resorts already have going, you will likely see special surcharges added to your yearly bills to help defray these timeshare resort costs.

3. Your timeshare is worth less: It wasn't worth a whole lot before, but it is worth even less now. Very few people want to buy (or can afford) a timeshare in a bad economy and that means prices of timeshares are falling like a rock to the ocean floor.

These are some of the reasons that the faltering economy will mean your timeshare costs you even more money...
