As the only major timeshare resale advertiser to actively designate timeshares which have sold on its website, BuyaTimeshare.com is rolling out a new initiative to enhance this feature.
BuyaTimeshare.com has announced an initiative to further educate timeshare owners regarding the sold timeshares which have been verified as sold through the company’s online platform.
Through the creation of an entire subsection of additional information designed to highlight individual resorts, in the process displaying sold timeshares and buyer offers, the company is raising awareness among the vacation ownership community regarding the overall impact of online timeshare sales.
In an effort to validate to the industry that timeshare transactions take place online, BuyaTimeshare.com features individual timeshares from recent sellers who have found buyers as well as an expanded list of sold timeshares linked from the company’s homepage.
“We are working with industry partners, such as our preferred independent closing companies, to document the sales process in an attempt to further track the ones that sell through our site,” said BuyaTimeshare.com CEO Wes Kogelman. “This documentation allows us to place our version of a sold sign onto individual ads in an attempt to let owners know the types of timeshares which are selling and the sale prices.”
“One of the drawbacks of a for-sale-by-owner site is that an owner can close a deal with a buyer and not tell us, since they are not obligated to do so. In a way, this is a good problem to have since it means a sale has been made, so we’re working to close that gap by following up with advertisers through our customer service team as well as through closing companies,” added Kogelman.
Kogelman will be discussing the methodology of how the company promotes its sold timeshares during this week’s national industry convention of the American Resort Development Association, taking place from today through April 16th at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida.
