Tools and Materials Needed

  • Computer
  • Internet Access
  • Timeshare Information
  • Newspaper
  • Timeshare Network

Step 1: Look into Different Destinations

Before you list your timeshare in Myrtle Beach as an exchange, you should always have a destination in mind. Even if you do not know where you would like to go, you should know where you do not want to go. This will make a big difference in the results you receive after listing your exchange. Research areas and narrow it down to a few different areas. 

Step 2: Read Classifieds

A newspaper is a wealth of information if you know where to look. Timeshares will be listed with other real estate advertisements. Look to see if there is someone who is willing to exchange theirs for a different location. Contact them and let them know of your timeshare in Myrtle Beach. You just might be able to do the exchange without any broker, or network involvement. Another option is look at the real estate section of Craigslist. 

Step 3: Contact Timeshare Network 

Many people have bought their timeshare through a network that has holdings in several different locations across the country, and surrounding countries. They will have a vast database available to them where you can list your exchange. Contact your network and let them know that you want to exchange your Myrtle Beach for one in a different area. You can also tell the representative some of the places you would like to exchange for. They will list the information, including the weeks you have your timeshare, into the database.

Step 4: Pay Exchange Fees

Listing an exchange with your network, or branch, will require that you pay a timeshare exchange fee. This can cost anywhere from $200 to $500 depending on the actual value of the timeshare you have, or the one you are exchanging for. 

Step 5: Respond to Inquiries

As people begin to respond to your exchange listing, make sure that you respond to them. These people are looking for an exchange of their own and will most likely respond to the people who get back to them first. If you wait too long, you may lose out on a good vacation spot. 

Step 6: Make Exchange

Once your network representative, or you, find a suitable exchange, then you can begin the transfer of ownership. In some cases, you will not even have to give up ownership of that particular place. You are just exchanging vacation times and then return to your original timeshare the next year.

Step 7: Enjoy

After all of the formalities are completed, make your travel arrangements and enjoy your new vacation getaway.
