What Are Timeshares?

A timeshare (sometimes called vacation ownership) is a property that encompasses a form of ownership or usage rights.  Most of these properties are resort style condominium units where there are multiple owners.  The owners can typically stay at the property for a full week each year.  Sometimes an owner might have 2 weeks or are able to split weeks.

Timeshares are usually developed by Luxury Hotel Companies and can be found in every corner of the world.  Some of the most popular include:

  • Hilton
  • Ritz-Carlton
  • Starwood
  • Marriott
  • Hyatt
  • Westgate
  • Bluegreen
