Q. What does float, flex mean?

A. A timeshare ownership deeded to a ‘fixed week’ allows the owner usage of the property for a specific week of the year, typically taking place on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  A ‘float’ or ‘floating’ week allows the owner to take advantage of the resort any time during the year as long as a unit is available.  ‘Flex’ weeks are like floating weeks, but with carry some restrictions.  Flex refers to the season, winter-flex for example.  High and low demand seasons vary from resort to resort so flex may be defined differently from one location to the other.  Biennial usage refers to the annual usage.  This allows the owner to use the resort every other year and is typically a more affordable option.

Q.  How easy is it to sell a Myrtle Beach timeshare on the resale market?

A. Although many resorts have a flexible and exciting timeshare program, sometimes one’s situation changes and you may decide to sell. One of the benefits of selling a timeshare is that it is one of the most popular timeshare companies on the resale market! Many interested buyers already own timeshares and are looking to expand their own portfolio. When you sell your timeshare on the resale market, there are two major considerations that will determine your success. First, you need exposure to the highest concentrations of interested buyers—meaning you have to list it for sale on a highly visible and well respected website. Second, you have to sell your timeshare at a fair asking price! A reliable timeshare resale company should be able to help you determine a market value of your vacation package, making it appealing to buyers, and therefore allowing you to sell quickly!
