In the timeshare industry, there is often a great deal of difference between the management of resorts that are still actively selling intervals (“active-sales” resorts) versus those that have sold all, or nearly all, of their intervals (”sold-out” resorts). This report explores the characteristics and management structures of sold-out resorts and discusses the unique challenges of operating them. It begins with a comparison of sold-out resorts to active sales resorts, and then moves to a discussion of reserve studies and special assessments at sold-out resorts.
This is a special report of the State of the Vacation Timeshare Industry Survey focusing on the sold-out resorts.
