Top 25 Timeshare Exchange Resorts
Article by Mark Silverman from the Timeshare Examiner
Redweek.com, the on-line marketplace for timeshare exchange, rentals and resales has released it’s annual listing of top 25 timeshare exchange resorts, according to it’s memberships.
While interesting, the list is by no means scientific; the responses come from the 1.5 million Redweek members, which is about 20% of the owners world wide, and skews to the United States, home for most of the sites members.
The results were also not compiled as part of any kind of random sampling, and it is unlikely that any of the respondents have significant exposure to more than a couple of dozen propetries each. As a matter of fact, the rankings are based on the resorts members information requests.
All that aside, the results are still interesting.
I may comment in future columns, in the meantime I present the list for your feed back
