What is a timeshare?
1963197419761994201220152018

What is a timeshare?

A real estate company named Hapimag was established in Switzerland in 1963 by two gentleman whose clients were purchasing second and third vacation homes. These gentleman had the idea of structuring the purchase of vacation homes and flats among multiple owners who they referred to as "shareholders." They began with a single 13-unit resort which they sold in a "right to use" shared ownership program to families across Europe and quickly gained popularity as a more affordable option to owning your own vacation home.

Their new business model was so successful they began to acquire hotels and resorts across Europe as well. Their "shareholders" were assigned one point per share, making them innovators in the world's first points-based timeshare model. Today Hapimag boasts a portfolio of over 5300 flats and 57 resorts across the globe. The first timeshare resort in the United States was built in 1965 on the island of Maui, Hawaii. The Hilton Hale Kaanapali marked the first hotel-condominium timeshare in America. It was announced as a "Destination Resort Area" offering an entire self-sufficient community of activities, shopping and arts supported by a local population of doctors, lawyers and teachers. The planning that went into this project was revolutionary at the time. No other developer had designed a hospitality driven community for both vacationing guests and employees alike.

RCI
1963197419761994201220152018

RCI

Resort Condominiums International, Inc. (RCI) opened its first offices in Indianapolis, quickly becoming one of the fastest growing companies in the United States. As pioneers of the vacation exchange program, RCI witnessed an increase in global popularity throughout the 1980s, leading the company to establish new offices on every continent (except Antarctica) in order to keep up with member and affiliate demand. This business model was the first of its kind, offering timeshare owners the ability to trade their week for a week at another resort, adding value to both the developer and the owner.

In 2006, RCI merged with a subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide, today known as the Wyndham Destination Network.

Today, RCI holds a strong position as the "go to" exchange network for timeshare owners and developers alike. Their innovative technological advancements in the industry continue to set them apart from other vacation exchange companies.
Interval International
1963197419761994201220152018

Interval International

Interval International (II) was formed in 1976 by a land developer and attorney in the Florida Keys. Interval International's founders are also credited with creating the first timeshare warranty deed and timeshare condominium documents, advocating for timeshare owner's rights as a response to a dip in the real estate market occurring in the early 1970s. Coining the phrase "interval ownership," these legal documents provided rights and options for timeshare owners across the globe.
