Before deciding where to sell your points, it’s important to know the facts about timeshare scams and other tips for how to sell a time share. First, we recommend calling Hyatt, and then reading this blog.
Hyatt Residence Club
One of the top timeshare vacation brands in the industry, Hyatt Residence Club offers owners a choice to stay at 16 resorts. Not to mention, the flexible points-based system gives you more vacation freedom than ever before. Priding themselves on customer services and excellent vacations, Hyatt really does make memorable vacations.
Before You Sell Hyatt Points
With the points-based flexibility of Hyatt, you may be able to travel to some of their other resorts in the brand before you sell your points. Perhaps you don’t love your home resort any more and want to venture out. For this reason, Hyatt designed its points-based timeshare program to help you maximize your vacation ownership.
Hyatt is an affiliate of Interval International, so before you sell Hyatt points, you should look into vacation exchange. Vacation exchange can open up new doors to travel to other resorts around the world. If you already own a Hyatt timeshare, you are eligible to join Interval International. This can provide a better solution for some members who aren’t ready to sell, and just want to experience more. If you’re truly ready to sell Hyatt points, we have some helpful tips to get started.

How To Avoid Timeshare Scams
Understanding the most common timeshare scams is key when learning how to sell your time share. Below are a few of the most common tricks that companies play, and how to avoid them.
High-Up Front Fees
Many “timeshare exit companies” will tell you they can cancel your timeshare in exchange for a large fee. They tell you that this fee will cover the cost of lawyers and transferring the membership, but be careful. If a company asks you to pay 5,000-10,000 dollars to cancel your timeshare, it’s usually a scam.
Unfortunately, most timeshares on the resale market are sold for less than 10,000, so it wouldn’t make sense to pay a lawyer that much money. There are companies, like ours, that do not charge 5,000 dollars to post your timeshare for sale. Finding a legitimate timeshare resale company is possible, especially when you know they are a member of ARDA.
If a company is a partner of the American Resort Development Association, you can generally trust their services. ARDA members must adhere to a strict code of conduct in order to remain recognized. ARDA is the trade association for timeshares and works tirelessly to help both owners and developers avoid being scammed by timeshare exit teams.
“Walking Away” From Timeshare Maintenance Fees
One main reason owners may want to sell Hyatt points is because they no longer can afford to pay their timeshare maintenance fees. While we understand the concerns of maintenance fees for those who are struggling, unfortunately, failing to pay your maintenance fees can hurt your credit. If any company or exit team tells you to stop paying your maintenance fees, or to “walk away from them,” it may be a scam.
Maintenance fees are part of the contract you sign with your developer, and they are not just something you can walk away from. If you are having trouble paying your timeshare maintenance fees, it is often best to let your resort know so they may be able to help you with a plan. Additionally, Responsible Exit is a great resource for owners who need trustworthy help selling their timeshare.
