Taking that annual summer vacation with your family is the best feeling in the world! Getting to travel, seeing the world, and spending time relaxing with those you love versus sitting in an office all day. It’s been proven to be a way to lower stress, and to keep marriages happy all by taking a few days a year to reconnect. The fun part is deciding where you want to go, and if you should invest in a time share or go through hotels.
Time shares are great ways to secure a location for your trip each year that you actually invest in, versus throwing money at already huge billionaire hotel chains. There is a lot to ponder when making a purchase of this magnitude such as price, can you afford it, and are you flexible with your travel days if you are sharing the location with other vacationers.
Lots to think about, but so exciting along the way!
Here are the 10 things to consider when buying a time share:
The main component to consider when thinking about purchasing a time share is to think about the location of your share. Is this a place you will want to continue visiting year after year?
Obviously what comes to mind is will you get tired of the same vacation? If you're thinking over a time share in the mountains, or one by a lake and you typically reside all year round where it is the opposite weather, then time sharing may be for you.
For example, many families enjoy using their time shares for a summer house when they live in a cold climate all year to get a nice break. Others want the opposite that live in warmer regions and want a brisk, cold retreat for skiing, and lodging with a warm fire. Something to talk over for sure is whether or not you wish to be in the same place each vacation season.
