I believe this is my first-ever post on the Mexico board. I will probably forget that I did! :rolleyes:

I have an 86-year old neighbor who owns two weeks at Pacifica Club, floating I believe. He knows I spend a lot of time on timesharing and has asked me what they might be worth and the best way to sell Mexican timeshares. Mexican timeshares is not my forte, or even my fortissimo. :D

Among other things, he has sold timeshares, so his perspective is from the retail (developer) side.

What should I tell him?

It's going to be hard to teach an "Old Dog" new tricks! :D

I'm fairly certain that if I tell him that he won't take it too well! :eek:

What should I tell him about the value of his timeshares?

More info required...

What size units? How much time left on the RTU? Are 2006 dues paid? If so, who gets the weeks?

Check on e-bay and Holidaygroup. I'm sure he will be greatly disappointed between what he remembers selling timeshares for and what they are worth on the resale market.

Don't know.

Don't know.

Yes. He was visiting his friend in Virginia Beach over the holidays and they called to ask me to help them pay their fees. They could not remember the name of their resort, only that it was in Ixtapa. With them on the phone I found the, and named them and described the pictures and they said that's the one. Then I googled them a phone number to call to pay their fees. I called several numbers before I got an English-speaking person.

Whoever.

Although he sold timeshares, he's light years behind the times in how to use them and how to maximize them. In other words, he's like the majority of owners. ;)

Four or five years ago we had a little blowup about timeshares. Jenny and I had taken George's significant other out on the boat and she started talking about timesharing, saying they owned foreclosures. When we got back she invited us over. The girls were sitting over yonder and George and I were talking timeshare at the table. At least up until the point where I said, "Whether you buy resale or from the developer, you get the same thing."

Mt. St. Helens happened right there at that table! :eek:
