Timeshare Purchases: How to Get the Best Bang For Your Buck

If you’re thinking to yourself, “What is a Timeshare Exactly?!?” Timeshares are partial vacation ownerships of condo-like units in resort developments.

They are owned, operated, and maintained by independent resorts, small chains, and large timeshare companies like Hilton Grand Vacations Club, Club Wyndham, Marriott Vacation Club, and Disney.
