When it comes time to part from your Welk Resort ownership, there are a few options you can pursue. The first thing you should do before consulting a third-party service is to contact Welk Resorts. They may have options to help you, or they can refer you to a trusted source that can help. If you decide to sell your Welk ownership, we’ll show you what that process looks like.
Welk Resorts Owner’s Lounge
Before you ask how you can sell your Welk Resorts timeshare, think about why you might want to part with it. Have you already seen all the beautiful resorts within their portfolio and need to see something new?
When you become a Welk Resorts owner, you have so many options. Sometimes, owners don’t know all they can do with their timeshare. Welk Resorts Platinum Points give members the flexibility to stay at any of Welk’s eight resorts. You can also exchange your points with RCI, their affiliated exchange network. The Welk Owner’s Lounge is the online portal made just for owners, so you can see where your ownership can take you and manage your vacations.

Selling Your Welk Timeshare on the Resale Market
If you’ve considered all your options and are ready to part with your Welk Resorts timeshare, you can post it for sale on the resale market. Make sure whatever third-party service you choose is a member of the American Resort Development Association and accredited by the Better Business Bureau. There can be some pitfalls in the resale industry with scams, so be sure to do your research.

Timeshares Only is a proud ARDA member, following their strict Code of Ethics and guidelines. As a timeshare advertising company, our representatives will create an eye-catching posting of your Welk Resorts ownership. With advanced technology and innovation in marketing, we use TV, radio, billboards and internet to put your timeshare in front of the right eyes.
We recommend that you also share your online advertisement with friends and family using social media or any other means you prefer. When an offer comes in, our friends at Fidelity Resales can contact you to go over the details. We recommend using their licensed real estate services to facilitate negotiations and write contracts. Of course, you can handle the sale yourself if you choose (but it’s not recommended!)
The Closing Process When You Sell Your Welk Timeshare
After an offer is accepted and the contracts are signed, they must be sent to the resort before you can finish selling your Welk timeshare. This process is called the Right of First Refusal and is a clause in every timeshare contract.
Welk Resorts has the right to accept the sale between the buyer and seller, or they can refuse the sale and take place as the buyer. This gives them the opportunity to purchase your ownership back. If the resort chooses to step in, they must accept the terms of sale already agreed upon between you and the original buyer. A licensed real estate agent with experience in timeshare can help navigate the ROFR and direct you to the next steps.
Welk Vs Timeshare Exit
As stated before, make sure that if you choose to use a third-party service to sell your Welk Resort timeshare that you do your research. There are timeshare exit companies or attorneys that charge steep up-front fees and promise to get you out, but these have known to be scams. Previously, Welk even filed a suit against the Timeshare Exit Team for taking advantage of their owners.
As a rule of thumb, any service that advises you to stop paying your timeshare maintenance fees and cease contact with your resort should be taken as a red flag. Although the case has been dismissed from Welk vs Timeshare Exit Team, you should never listen to this advice. You are legally obligated to continue paying your maintenance fees until Welk notifies you that the transfer of ownership has been completed. If you stop paying them, you will default on your ownership. This not only hurts your credit score severely, it stays on your credit history report forever.
