Popular e-Marketplace’s 2015 Offer Report Signals a Robust Resale Market for Both Sellers and Buyers
SellMyTimeshareNow.com, the largest and most active online platform for selling, purchasing, and renting vacation ownership interests, today released its annual Offer Report, which tallies total purchase and rental offers delivered to advertisers in the calendar year. During 2015, SellMyTimeshareNow.com forwarded 66,131 confirmed offers with a value of $270,037,418 to timeshare owners offering their timeshares for sale or rent, representing more than a 43% increase in the total value of all offers.
Offer performance was consistent throughout the year, with each quarter exceeding the corresponding quarter in 2014 in both the total number of purchase and rental offers and the total dollar value of these offers. This upward trend is reflective of the steady growth SellMyTimeshareNow.com has seen in recent years.

“Our team is focused on delivering real value to timeshare owners. The growth in purchase and rental offers is a result of years of effort and investment in driving buyers to our family of websites, and it’s a result that is not easily duplicated,” says Scott Roberts, CEO of SellMyTimeshareNow.com. “What is even more impressive is that our 2015 Offer Report does not include the additional 33,555 inquiries—communication containing specific purchase or rental interest, but no dollar value—that were sent directly to timeshare owners with opportunities to transfer, sell, or rent out their intervals.”
In a secondary market plagued by a lack of transparency, SellMyTimeshareNow.com began publishing its Offer Reports as early as 2006. The company’s president, Chad Newbold, explains that the dramatic growth seen in 2015 is also indicative of increasing interest in timeshare resale among prospective buyers and travelers.
“There’s a lot of negative press regarding the viability of the secondary market, and the misconception that it’s impossible to resell timeshares still persists,” says Newbold. “Yet demand continues to increase year over year. We want owners to know that there are buyers out there; our 2015 Offer Report demonstrates this. You just have to know where to find them.”
In 2015, the company’s digital marketing initiatives drove over 5.1 million visits—and more than $270 million in purchase and rental offers for timeshare owners—to SellMyTimeshareNow.com and its family of websites. With more than 55,000 timeshares for sale and for rent, the e-marketplace offers consumers more vacation ownership products and intervals to choose from than any other timeshare resale platform.
