I am not going to be able to use my [dates deleted]

or those who own at MS (I've only had it a couple years now) what is the best way to rent it or trade it? I have SFX but already have a couple of deposits there.

Right now, a lot of people are trying to rent their timeshares, so you want to price your week competitively, market it well, and make sure you have a lot of traffic - because you have a lot of competition. I personally use these cheap or free websites to post my Ads:

TUG Timeshare Marketplace - http://tug2.com/timesharemarketplace/
1 year Membership - $15
Ads - free up to 25

www.craigslist.org (free)

www.redweek.com
Membership - $14.99 for 12 months
Timeshare Rental Ads - $24.99/ea for 6 Months
Timeshare Resale Ads - $59.99/ea for 12 Months

www.myresortnetwork.com
Membership - free
Timeshare Rental Ads - $19.95 ($24.95 - floating weeks)
Timeshare Resale Ads - $34.95

There is also a list of resale websites at the top of the Buying, Selling, Renting, board that you may want to take a look at.

Some people don't like Craigslist, because you get a lot of scammers who respond, but they are painfully obvious, and I just ignore them. Another tool I use to eliminate the scammers is that I only accept payment by Paypal which requires a verified bank account or credit card to be registered.

On Craigslist, you need to create a Craigslist Acct., create 3 different Ads with different titles and wording, and rotate them every 3 days. You don't have to rewrite the Ads - if you create an Acct. they will be saved in your Acct. and you can just use the "renew" function, to renew the oldest Ad every 3 days which will bring it to the top of the listings.

thanks

Thanks Denise. I am a member of tug, but truthfully in the 3 years I have been a member have only ever purchased a timeshare via TUG and never rented a unit - even when I price it right. I have used Redweek with the same outcome.

So you are right, there must not be a market right now. Will try the other suggestions.

is your best place to bank your week. To rent it is tough right now, you could join HTSE.com and have them try to rent it, they take a cut but they get pretty good results. And if at 2 weeks it doesn't rent, they will bank it for you.
Best of luck,
Greg
