True, if you think you've gotten value, it's easy to offer a unit for free.That's 100% correct.
But I'll add that if you're using your week correctly, it will pay for itself so many times over that when you're done with it, you could give away for free and walk away, content that you got your money's worth.
Even a bronze 1300 point week is enough to get 2 or 3 weeks each year. It all boils down to flexibility. The family of six who wants to ski Christmas week every year is going to need far more points than the couple who doesn't care where they go and can stay in studios.
When we're done/too old for traveling and timesharing, we hope to either sell or give away our timeshares.
My Hyatt platinum unit should be pretty easy to sell. However I fear my Vistana Orlando unit will be very difficult to even give away. At our update mtg a couple of months ago, a Vistana (now Marriott) sales manager said they wouldn't even take my Orlando unit as a deed back. Management doesn't want to carry
MF on those lower demand weeks which are also difficult to sell. They'd rather owners like us keep paying those MFs. They might take back tho' a developer bought week at the same resort, go figure...
