The American Resort Development Association (ARDA) is a forerunner in educating consumers about the timeshare industry and vacation ownership. Next month they are launching several advisories, Forums and task forces all focused on timeshare resales. The current economy has uncovered some unscrupulous companies trying to take advantage of owners who need to sell their timeshare. These new efforts from ARDA will help educate consumers on the best way to resell their timeshare, should the need arise. The goal is for these tools to help ease public confusion about how to resell a timeshare and who they can trust to help them.
There are two resale advisory documents available from ADRA. These guidelines have been posted to their Web site and can be found at: Resale Guidelines Advisory I and Resale Guidelines Advisory II.
