What is a Timeshare and What It Isn’t: Real Talk from a Happy Owner of 15 years

When the Federal Trade Commission has a section on their website answering “What is a Timeshare,” you know there is confusion out there!  That’s why I like to say that a Timeshare isn’t something you purchase on a whim, three margaritas deep, while on vacation.

It’s a legal contract and long-term financial decision that you should thoroughly understand and think through before buying.  No matter what a salesman tells you, timeshare purchase deals will still be available after you get home, so take your time.
