Timeshare Datashare: October 2016     

Timeshare Inventory Levels

Provided by ARDA International Foundation   

In the 2016 AIF Financial Performance survey conducted earlier this year, respondents were asked to report their respective inventory levels in 2015. Approximately 26.7 percent of the companies that responded to reported holding at least two years of completed inventory. Years of completed inventory ranged from less than one year to more than 5 years. The weighted average inventory levels of all respondents increased by 0.17 years from 1.70 years to 1.87 years from 2014 to 2015.

Timeshare completed inventory, for the purpose of this study, is defined as unsold completed weeks of inventory available for sale at resorts, including developer reacquired weeks. Based on 15 respondent companies, there were a total of 461,684 weeks of completed inventory as of December 31, 2015. Inventory levels can be evaluated by considering the amount of inventory in relation to the company’s current sales pace. From the inventories indicated by respondent companies, inventory levels (measured in years) were calculated. This reflects the number of years that the company would need to sell its entire unsold, completed inventory if it were to maintain its 2015 sales pace. Completed inventory levels are calculated by taking the reported inventory and dividing it by the total number of weeks sold in 2015. For example, a company that had 5,000 unsold weeks of inventory at year-end 2015 after selling 2,500 weeks during 2015 would be counted as having an inventory level of two years (5,000 divided by 2,500).
