Disney's Vero Beach Resort

Have you ever received mail offering you a FREE weekend at a wonderful resort? Or perhaps they offer you a TV, money, cruise, or vacation. Is there a catch? Almost always. If you read the material carefully, you will see that you must attend a "presentation." Some of these presentations are more interesting than others, but most all involve a high-pressure sales team whose job it is to get you to BUY. What are they selling? Either timeshare properties or vacation clubs.

If you think you might be interested in vacation property you'll want to find out all you can before you buy. What is the difference between timeshare properties and vacation clubs? How does vacation ownership work? What are the advantages of paying now for future vacations? Find out here what you need to know about timeshares and vacation clubs... before you buy.

And, if you're considering a timeshare, Ex-Senior Living Guide, Sharon O'Brien, gives you the basic information that can help you decide if a timeshare is right for you by Answering Seven Basic Timeshare Questions.
