Marriott Vacation Club Timeshare Resale: Defined
Resorts Across The World
Choose Between Points-Based Or Weeks-Based
Marriott has been a leading brand in hospitality for over since they opened their first hotel in 1957, and has grown to be one of the most popular timeshare companies in the world. Marriott Vacation Club timeshares feature luxurious accommodations at over 80 Marriott resorts, while offering multiple types of vacations ownerships that cater to any style of travel. Whether you’re purchasing a points-based or weeks-based Marriott-branded timeshare on the resale market, you stand to save thousands of dollars when comparing to the high initial cost of buying directly from Marriott.
When buying a Marriott Vacation Club resale, you are purchasing the same ownership that was sold at the presentations, but you are buying from an existing owner who has chosen to sell their ownership on the secondary resale market. If you’d like more information on the differences between buying on the resale market, and buying directly from Marriott, you can read our in-depth article on the subject here: Marriott Resale vs Retail: What Don’t I Get On The Secondary Market?, but suffice it to say that Marriott timeshares allow resale buyers to enjoy more of the same benefits that retail buyers enjoy than any other timeshare brand.
This is just part of the reason why Marriott resale prices have remained high over many years, with strong demand from buyers on the secondary market.

Meanwhile, a points-based Marriott timeshare will offer you unparalleled flexibility, but can cost much more depending on how many points you wish to own.
