Learn About Timeshare Properties
Learn about Buying and Selling a Timeshare Property - A timeshare is a form of ownership or right to the use of a property, or the term used to describe such properties. Timeshare properties are typically resort condominium units, in which multiple parties hold rights to use the property, and each sharer is allotted a period of time in which they may use the property. Timeshares may be on a part-ownership or lease/"right to use" basis, in which the sharer holds no claim to ownership of the property.

An owner may own a deed to use a unit for a single specified week. For example, week 26 normally includes the 4th of July Holiday, week 51 is Christmas week. If an owner owned Week 26 at a resort he or she could use that week every year.
