Since the launch of Marriott’s new Vacation Club points program in June 2010, we have received numerous inquiries regarding its impact on the resale market for resort- specific deeded ownership. Marriott’s developer timeshare sales program now centers on selling points which are in turn used as the currency to book timeshare vacations. The Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program advertises the flexibility to book anywhere within the Marriott timeshare network from anywhere, from a few days to an entire week.
But at what price comes this new found flexibility? The age-old value proposition of buying in the resale market versus developer-direct still holds true – you will save in excess of 50% by buying a resort-specific unit in the resale market as opposed to the same week purchased as points from Marriott. Owners of resort-specific deeded units still have the flexibility to trade through Interval International or book their week at their home resort. Paradise Timeshare Resale is one of the leading resellers of Marriott timeshares and is conveniently located in Heavenly Village directly in front of the Marriott Timber Lodge.
