Timeshare Resale and Rental Services – Advertiser Terms
Bay Tree SolutionsSM is a For Sale by Owner/For Rent by Owner advertising and marketing company, not a real estate broker. BTS is not affiliated with your resort or exchange company. Our cooperative program involves pooling Advertisers' resources to maximize exposure to potential buyers/renters of your timeshare property; using advanced Search Engine Placement strategies, content development, and other proprietary means. BTS cannot, and will not, negotiate on your behalf. BTS will forward all offers directly to you, and allow you to negotiate the sale/rental of your timeshare without the involvement of a broker and without a commission.
Although your timeshare will be exposed to millions of potential buyers/renters as a result of the marketing program, BTS does not have a specific buyer/renter for your timeshare at the present time.
No appraisal is necessary or required in order to sell/rent your timeshare. The value of your timeshare is comprised of the price at which you are willing to sell, and the amount a buyer is willing to pay. In order to assist you in determining an asking price for your timeshare, BTS may provide you information concerning the listing prices of similar timeshares, or information concerning developer sales pricing at your resort, compiled from historical sales data. Any information BTS provides should not be considered an “appraisal" of your timeshare’s value, and you as the owner are ultimately responsible for choosing the sale/rental price to be advertised.
The term of your marketing agreement is ninety (90) days, and although the marketing program is designed to assist you sell/rent your timeshare during this time frame, BTS cannot guarantee a sale date. If, for any reason, you do not accept a sale/rental offer within ninety (90) days, BTS will automatically renew your agreement at our expense, and continue to market your timeshare until sold/rented.
You are responsible for returning signed and dated marketing agreement to BTS in a timely fashion. Failure to do so may result in your timeshare’s removal from the marketing program, and no refund will be issued. Should your phone number(s) or email address change, you must provide BTS updated contact information. If we are unable to reach you for an extended period, for the purposes of forwarding you a sale/rental inquiry, your advertisement will be removed from our program.
You may choose to provide text or photos to be used in your timeshare profile. Any photos must be owned by you, or used with permission from the copyright owner. Should BTS become aware that photos you provided are in violation of copyright laws, they will be removed immediately.
Your marketing fee is a one-time, non-recurring, and non-refundable charge.
(Excepting Cancellation period, and terms of our Money Back Guarantee below.)
Once you have sold your timeshare, and at your request, BTS will provide referrals for financing of the buyer and a title company for closing.
(It is customary for the buyer to pay closing costs unless you negotiate otherwise.)
If you notify BTS of your intent to cancel the marketing agreement, within seven (7) days of date of agreement, a full refund will be issued. Refunds may take up to thirty (30) days to process.
Money Back Guarantee
If your timeshare is sold by you, or anyone else, within 35% of the original advertised price or above, we will refund your marketing fee in full, within thirty (30) days of receiving notice. Acceptable proof of sale: an executed and recorded deed transfer, or certified copy of closing statement. Amount of sale must be verifiable. (Resort upgrade, or participation in a “Relief” or “Transfer” program, does not constitute a sale.)
Sample Sales Agreement
Timeshare Buyer/Renter Terms
BTS is not a real estate broker, and any negotiation for the sale/rental of a timeshare included in the marketing program will be directly between you, and the owner of the timeshare (Advertiser.) Should you wish to retain the services of a real estate broker to assist you with the sale/rental of a timeshare, payment of any commissions will be at the sole discretion of the Advertiser.
Timeshare resale buyers are strongly urged to use a Title Company to handle the transfer of the timeshare, including the escrow of purchase funds. Should you need a referral to a title company experienced in closing on timeshares, BTS will be happy to provide one.
Timeshare renters will typically be required to show Photo Identification, along with a Major Credit Card, in order to check-in at the resort. Additionally, timeshare renters may be required to sign a Rental Agreement, accepting responsibility for any damages caused to the unit during their stay.
Information contained in Property Profiles appearing on BayTreeSolutions.com is deemed reliable, but not guaranteed accurate. Buyers/Renters assume full responsibility for verifying property information.
