When attending a timeshare presentation, it is important for guests to pay attention to the potential costs and fees associated with purchasing, the nature of the resort and the terms of the actual timeshare agreement. It is also important for buyers to refrain from signing any contracts until researching the property and reviewing the contract thoroughly.
The purpose of a timeshare presentation is to convince attendees to purchase property in resort location for use at various times during each year, which involves many of the same financial actions that come with purchasing any property. As such, the attendee needs to fully understand the nature of the area and the property before attending the presentation to ensure that it suits her needs and lifestyle. Reading online review is often helpful, as it allows the attendee to gain more insight into the daily life of the area rather than only what the sales representatives say.
During the presentation, the attendee should listen for any mention of special considerations, including seasonal weather conditions such as storms, as these may influence the purchasing decision. The presentation may not explain all the fees that come with purchasing the timeshare, so if the attendee does not see this information she should ask the sales representative about them. Once she receives a contract, she should review it on her own, or with a layer if possible, to understand its full terms.
