    I have a Spring Break Ski Week (11) at Inn@SilverCreek, and you don't have to pay for it. I will Quitclaim it, and pay the recording costs. Maintenance fee is $370-ish, and they have an Owners Rental Program.

    We will keep a Peak Summer week at Fine Kettle, and will eventually pick up something at Sea Oats Beach Club, for pool, spa and beach access.

    FWIW, I'm not always right, and not often wrong.

    In saying most everyone would like to make an orderly exit, I can't think of why anyone would not want to. But, then, I can't speak for everyone, and I'm sure there's people, even people here, who like disorder.

    You have to remember, I'm not a moron, I'm just a dick.
    I know Im missing some inside joke, but what timeshare is Fine Kettle of Fish

    and no I wouldnt pay as much as nothing for your ski week.. Id want 2017 and 2018 fees paid to me. as well as you paying the closing and transfer fees.

    Well, that $18 I do have.

    Oh, gosh, ouch, what a letdown.

    Your idea of an orderly exit!!!! Something for (most) all timeshare owners to look forward to. Bickering over how much to pay to get out of it.

    Im not bickering, Im offering you a way out...with the hope that you will stop complaining about your problems selling

    If you dont sell it, wont you have to pay those annual fees anyway?

    and isnt this a deeded timeshare? The cost to record the deed will be more than just $18, I would think...

    The more we talk about this, the more people who come here looking for an orderly exit discover the truth.

    My concern is not over "our" inability to get rid of them; it is over "the" inability to get rid of them.

    Slowly, as has been pointed out here, some in the industry will get it, and not because people keep quiet about the problem.

    To repeat, if people knew they could end their ownership in an orderly fashion, more would be willing to get involved. It would be the greatest improvement to timesharing since timesharing.

    If not, there's bound to be more Apple Valleys.

    To illustrate this, one of sales tactics of a major Branson outfit is to tell their prospects exactly that, and, in addition, they will get rid of the timeshares they already own, and put money in their pocket doing it. The prospects are so motivated to get rid of what they already own, that they buy. The thought of being able to get out is what made the sale.

    Of course, it's way past the cancellation period when they find out it's all a lie, and they still own what they owned before, plus the new one they got lied into buying.

    The top salesman for that outfit told me about it when he quit after he found out it was all a lie, and he told them to keep the $70,000 in commissions he was owed. That was two or years ago.

    Based on more recent complaints to the BBB, they are still doing it.

    But, if there really was a way to get out, more would get in. Some things are just common sense.

    People are not looking to get out when they are looking to get in.
    Apparently you weren't either when you got in.
    Most who are trying to get in think that it's something they want to will to their heirs.

    Those who come here hoping to find a way to get out can make their own judgments about these discussions.

    None of which matters when they do decide their done with them, and can't get rid of them.

    An orderly exit seems like a small thing to come up with. Some are, as has been noted. Wonder why that is?
