Most of us love to vacation, and most of us have experienced the disappointment of thinking “I can’t afford to go on vacation this year.” Smart Vacations is here so you never have to feel that disappointment again. Vacation ownership guarantees regular vacations for you and your family, without the headaches of having to find and arrange accommodation.
When you compare the costs of staying in a traditional hotel room along with eating out, When the value in owning your vacation becomes a incredibly difficult to ignore. The inventory for properties can change very quickly so we only list a few sample properties at a time. They are all from various parts of the Continental US, Mexico and the Caribbean.
By paying that one time cost of $699 USD*, which is a one time processing fee, you will join 8 million other Timeshare owners in North America of a luxury vacation week. * We are waiting for our webmaster to change the $399 USD graphic on the other side of this page. This was an error needing correction.
You own the week for life. In North America it is an actual real estate transaction, the same as would occur in buying a house or condominium.
If you choose to purchase in a foreign country such as Mexico, you would be signing a lease of usage with a term of 15-25 years dependent upon the resort you are buying the unit from.
There is no difference at all. You have all the privileges and bells and whistles as what your friends have. What we offer is a resale from the resorts in our inventory and in most cases they are simply trade-ins of owners who have chosen to upgrade the original week they purchased
As a new owner you would assume the transfer of the title which is included in the $399 fee. Normally the cost for title transfers average around $500 USD.
Yes, in purchasing your week you are agreeing to take over the yearly cost of Maintenance, payable when due. This maintenance covers all repairs, upkeep, furniture replacements, taxes and general upkeep of the unit and resort itself. Costs will differ depending on the resort locations, but today’s average is around $695 USD. We show that cost in the sample resorts we provide for you
Ownership means that you do have a place that you can go to each year. Some units offer a fixed week each year and others floating weeks, where you would book the week you want in advance.
This is a great question and Smart Vacations is here to advise you on your purchase. The real answer is no, it is up to you. If there is a location you really love and want to return to frequently then that is where you buy. But there may be other factors like maintenance costs, trading value and what type of activities you and your family enjoy most.
One of the other great benefits and the reason millions purchase timeshares, is that you can exchange your unit and trade it for another location by joining one of the two largest networks like RCI or Interval. Most destination resort locations throughout the world are associated with these networks. You pay a small yearly fee of usually $100 USD to have this privilege and a small transfer fee when you trade. We have posted videos on all pages for you to learn more about these networks.
By joining an exchange network you will also have access to renting extra weeks for as low as $295 USD.
If you choose not to travel during a given year, the exchange networks will allow you to accumulate weeks for the following year or you can try and rent your unit. Rental rates can exceed the cost of the maintenance for your unit..
