Stroman Realty Study Shows Timeshare Resales Prices Rising in 2009

While timeshare resales prices have still not recovered from their high in 2007 they show signs of recovery. Sales data from closed timeshare sales on the secondary market revealed a 4% increase in prices from 2008.
Aug. 26, 2009 - PRLog -- Signs of economic recovery are often seen first in the purchase of luxury items. A recent study by Stroman Realty, Inc of timeshare resales prices for 2009 is showing signs of bouncing back from a decline in prices from 2008. Sales data from closed timeshare sales on the secondary market revealed a 4% increase in prices from 2008. While timeshare resales prices have still not recovered from their high in 2007 they show signs of recovery. “Prices are on the rebound from the worldwide economic crisis that was upon us for the last 18 months” said Wayne Stroman, the broker and president of Stroman Realty. He went on to explain the past five years of sales data: The year to date or first seven months worldwide timeshare average sales price numbers for each of the last five years from 2005 through 2009 are as follows:

2005     $7,905.38
2006     $7,743.03  
2007     $9,962.75
2008     $8,802.40
2009     $9,189.80

For those who have been thinking of selling their timeshare, this may be an indication that it is a good time to sell. “Timeshare owners that bought from the developer are not getting 100% of the original sales price. If they bought a resale timeshare they probably still have their purchase equity.” He said. So far in 2009 the highest priced timeshare property sold was Marriott’s Mountainside in Park City Utah for $54,900. The state with the largest number of timeshare sales was California. Dominating the California timeshare resales list were Marriott’s Newport Coast Villas, Marriott’s Desert Springs Villas, Four Seasons Aviara, and Marriott’s Shadow Ridge.
