    Have you Sold or Rented YOUR timeshare?

    Have you sold or rented your timeshare?
    Why?

    We sold 2 of ours (at the Tropicana, then called Lacabana Suites).
    We sold the 2 weeks because it really did not work well with our schedules.

    We do own a couple of fixed week units at LaCabana Beach Resort and Casino and we do own Bluegreen points there.

    We try to rent those weeks, all of them, to cover the maintenance fees. Hopefully leaving us aweek or 2 to use.
    Lately, we have been "renters" as all of ours have been rented.

    I am very new to this timeshare owning thing, but I did rent out two units last year Just enough to cover my maintenance fees for the units. Very easy & positive experience.

    We've never rented out one of our weeks but did rent a week at the Trop this year.

    I have 3 weeks at Divi, one is during gold week (46) which I use every year. One that is a float and I can use it during Gold season (17-50), which I also use and put in at week 45 usually (this year 47) and one week 45 which I haven't used for a few years but is on the old contract and I do not have to pay maintenance fee if I do not use it. Those weeks I have about 7 that I haven't used plus what ever is left on contract which I think is about 12-15 years.....
    I would rent those out, but if I put them in II and they aren't used I loose them AND in order to put them in II...I have to pay maintenance fee first, so not worth the risk.....Guess I could put them on here and see what happens, never really thought about it. Glad you brought this up Andrea !!!!
    Anybody want to rent a studio at Divi Village, week 44 this year ??????

    I worked too damn long and hard to get our timeshare. All we have now is the maintenance fee every year. Ain't no way I'm renting or selling, but thanks for asking!

    Weeks 10,11,51&52 at the Tropicana for sale or rent

    Hi AndreaWe noticed that you sold 2 weeks that you owned at the Tropicana.We were renting them through Aruba Rentals for the last few years and now that they have a new owner we've had no luck in renting them.Could you share with us your contact that you used to sell your weeks?We are no longer able to travel like we used to and feel it's time to sell them.Any reasonable offer would be entertained.ThanksJim
