We are happy to share the latest research from our State of the Vacation Timeshare Industry: United States Study 2015.  It shows that the timeshare industry enjoyed steady growth in 2014.  Here are a few of the highlights.

When comparing 2014 to 2013:

  • Sales volume increased more than four percent, to $7.9 billion;
  • 1,555 timeshare resorts in the United States, representing about 198,490 units;
  • Average resort size was 128 units;
  • The average sales price was $20,020; and
  • Occupancy increased two percent, up to 78 percent (compared to a 641 percent hotel occupancy rate).

There were some other interesting tidbits as well:

  • Beach resorts are the most common type of resort;
  • Theme park resorts have the highest occupancy;
  • Florida has the most resorts—23% of the national total;
  • Nevada has the largest average resort size—182 units on average; and
  • Hawaii has the highest occupancy rate for a region, at 85.3%.
