What Is a Timeshare?

Timeshares are basically a shared ownership of property. Timeshares have been sold in a variety of properties; however, they are most popular for shares in condominiums at resorts. By creating a shared ownership, developers are able to reduce costs for each owner.

So What Do You Own in a Timeshare?

When you own a timeshare, for a specific "time" you have exclusive use to the "share" you own in a property. For example, if your "share" is 4 weeks in July, you have exclusive use of the timeshare property during that time period. The other timeshare owners have exclusive use of the property during the rest of the year.    

Who Pays for the Maintenance and Upkeep of the Property?

All owners of the timeshare property share maintenance fees, management fees and costs to upkeep the common areas like pools and lounges. Fees will vary and should be disclosed to you when you buy a unit.
