TOP 25 TIMESHARE RESORTS 2015

The new data is out and it shows the Disney Vacation Club is the big winner.

The Sharket Research team has released its “Top 25 Timeshare Resorts” list based on resale data.  Each resort with sales data was scored and ranked based on resale volume and typical pricing at each resort.

The Disney Vacation Club is the big winner. Of the more than 1,400 resorts reporting sales in the Sharket database, only eight earned a perfect 10 Saleability Score™, and seven of them are Disney Vacation Club resorts. The other resort with a perfect 10 is a Hilton Grand Vacations Club resort.

Why is resale value so important?  A strong resale value tends to be the byproduct of a good timeshare program with a happy owner base.

“Robust resale demand clearly points to a solid timeshare program.” says Bob Schmidt, Sharket’s Chief Data Officer. “It shows buyers still want to own at these resorts even when removed from the emotional aspects of purchasing directly from the developer.”

Some highlights include:

  • Disney Vacation Club resorts take all of the top seven rankings, eight of the top ten, and nine of the top 25.
  • Two Marriott Vacation Club resorts appear in the top 10, and seven of the top 25. Hilton Grand Vacations Club resorts appear once in the top 10 and seven times in the top 25.
  • Geographically speaking, Orlando area resorts dominate, appearing nine times in the top 25, while 15 of the top 25 are located in Florida.
  • Hawaii resorts appear seven times.
