Online timeshare resale advertiser has brought the timeshare secondary market into a new phase of development with the release of its new mobile website.

This latest innovation, which debuted in conjunction with the launch of the company’s newly-designed website at, allows consumers to research timeshare resale information on a true mobile platform from any device, whether it is a smartphone or tablet.

BAT-Logo-Hi-res StackedThe new mobile site gives prospective buyers and renters the opportunity to easily search for timeshare information and engage with search fields and links without the hassle usually associated with accessing a standard website from a mobile device, according to president and CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“Prior to the launch of our new mobile site, a consumer would have to access a regular website on their mobile device and zoom, or pinch, or swipe at the screen until they got a screen they could actually read. Then they would hope they could use the fields and click onto the links, which was more guesswork than anything else.”

“With our new site, a buyer can go straight to our site from any device, clearly see the fields and easily access the information to find the exact timeshare they are looking for. And with the significant savings available on the resale market, this is a game-changer for the industry,” said Kogelman.

The trend toward increased mobile device use in e-commerce is unmistakable. According to the latest statistics from marketing analytics firm Custora, over one-third of visits to e-commerce sites now come from mobile devices, up from just three percent in 2010.

Mobile users will also be able to access the new Market Analysis tool to gauge the average asking price for a particular timeshare in the inventory. By entering in a resort name and other primary information, such as number of bedrooms and bathrooms, a timeshare owner can find out the average asking price through an automated service in a matter of seconds.

Online offer activity continues to be strong for timeshare resale and rental advertising company

Prospective buyers and renters place offers on timeshares for sale and for rent which are advertised on the online platform (, and metrics continue to show improvement compared to this time last year.

“With 14,390 confirmed offers placed on ads throughout our site to buy timeshare in 2014, we are already ahead of our yearly total from last year. This is extremely good news as we continue to sound the trumpets that timeshare is indeed a sought-after vacation ownership product,” said president and CEO, Wesley Kogelman.

“We have also forwarded over $7 million in confirmed timeshare rental offers to our advertisers, which has also exceeded our 2013 total,” added Kogelman.

These numbers are expected to climb even further through the end of 2014 and beyond following the recent launch of the company’s newly-designed website. Using a new dynamic format, the site adapts to whichever device is being used to access the site, providing true mobile compatibility should the consumer use a smartphone or tablet to search for resale information.

“Online transactions are only growing and all of the research shows that more consumers are using their phones and tablets to transact online. According to new Forrester Research, three out of four shoppers shop online, and 30 percent of shoppers do so on a mobile device at least as much as they shop on a computer. This is significant as we move toward a full online transaction cycle for timeshares and other vacation ownership products,” Kogelman stated.

Created in conjunction with web design firm Advanced Internet Management (AIM), timeshare resale information will now be more accessible than ever through easier use of the new platform, meeting the needs of timeshare buyers and renters looking for information from whichever device they are using.

“It’s no secret that all of the trends point to the increased adoption of mobile devices for online commerce, so this is the natural progression of our business model to serve the needs of consumers seeking timeshare resale information,” said president and CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“In 2010, only 3.4% of total visits to all e-commerce sites came from mobile devices, whereas today, 36.9% of site visits are from tablets and phones. That’s only going to grow, and we hope to capture an even larger share of the online resale market through our new site.”

“We also have a new feature which allows a seller to conduct an automated market analysis of their timeshare, which will display an average asking price based on the owners advertising on our site, and provide sellers with a starting point to assess the potential value of their timeshare,” Kogelman added.

These new features build upon the success of the company over the past 14 years, adding to innovations such as the Timeshare Pulse alert system and consumer protection initiatives like e-signature technology for written contracts and captcha security for online offers made to buy or rent timeshares.

These strategies led to an increase of 68 percent in the number of offers placed onto ads from prospective buyers during the second quarter compared to the same timeframe in 2013, totaling 5,200 offers. Renters seeking deals placed 2,086 offers on advertised rental properties, an increase of 41 percent from last year.

The increased activity shows that buyers and renters are still looking for quality vacation products in the midst of the summer holiday season according to CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“Our activity has been very robust and continues to demonstrate that consumers are actively seeking vacation ownership products,” said Kogelman. “For years, all we heard from the industry was that timeshare was not a sought product, but our numbers contradict that thinking.”

“The increased offer numbers are also tracking well with the overall industry, which just reported an 11 percent increase in sales volume for 2013 according to ARDA. We’ve always believed that the better the new sales volume is, the better we’ll be since those owners will eventually look to resell their products.”

Top 10 Most Popular Summer Resorts Revealed by May 19, 2014

Posted by Steve Luba in : News & Events, Timeshare Resale , comments closed

With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner and the summer travel season about to heat up, timeshare resale and rental expert has released a list of its Top 10 most popular vacation ownership resorts as requested by consumers.

Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort

Villa at Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort

The list was compiled based on the amount of offers to rent timeshare over the last six months placed through the company’s industry-leading online marketplace. Aruba remains a high demand destination and while brand names such as Marriott, Wyndham and Holiday Inn Club Vacations continue to be popular, the overall dominance of these international locations is unexpected.

The Top 10 list is:

  1. Marriott’s Aruba Surf Club (Aruba)
  2. Casa Dorada at Medano Beach (Cabo San Lucas, Mexico)
  3. Wyndham Bonnet Creek (Orlando, FL)
  4. Island Seas Resort (Freeport, Bahamas)
  5. Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club (Aruba)
  6. Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort (Aruba)
  7. Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort (Aruba)
  8. Ocean Beach Club (Virginia Beach, VA)
  9. Marriott’s OceanWatch Villas at Grande Dunes (Myrtle Beach, SC)
  10. Holiday Inn Club Vacations Galveston Beach Resort (Galveston, TX) 

“I am surprised that six of the top ten requested resorts are outside of the U.S., which is an indication that the tourism recovery continues to gain strength,” said president and CEO Wesley Kogelman. “With the higher cost of traveling outside of the country, those consumers obviously have the resources to make the trip, which is a great indication that consumer visitor spending is on the rise.”

“Top U.S. vacation ownership destinations such as Orlando, Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach also made the list, so I’m pleased to see that traditional locations for our industry are also doing well. And with Galveston debuting with us, a new market is now on the resale map,” added Kogelman.

These offers were placed by prospective renters onto advertisements from owners looking to rent timeshare through the website. As a result of the company’s extensive online marketing strategies, consumers looking to rent or buy timeshare search the inventory available on the website and place offers which the owner can either accept, counter or decline.

Last year, over $6 million in rental offers passed through the website and, with over $2.5 million in offers in the first quarter of 2014, the company is on pace to surpass last year’s total. Because of the protective software in place such as captcha security and other measures, each offer is confirmed as legitimate through the system prior to being emailed directly to an owner.

Offers are securely sent to owners advertising their timeshare by the proprietary software platform built by Using a combination of captcha security with a free account procedure, Smart Offer technology and the information required from prospective buyers and renters, all owner information is protected and offers confirmed as legitimate when emailed directly to the advertiser.

The increase in offers is a welcome sign as the vacation ownership secondary market continues to gain relevance as an important sector of the industry according to president and CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“We’ve been in business for 14 years and I’ve seen many fluctuations in the market over the years, but the growth in the resale sector demonstrates that resales are to be taken seriously by the rest of the industry,” said Kogelman. “Our offer numbers show that potential buyers and renters are using our site because of the transparency it provides them about the product.”

The post-recession expansion of the secondary market can be traced back to 2010, when a report by the ARDA International Foundation (AIF) showed that 17 percent of vacation ownership sales came from resales. By 2012, that segment grew to 32 percent according to follow up research from the AIF which also indicated that the preferred channel used by recent resale purchasers was an online timeshare resales listing company.

“The internet continues to drive this shift towards user-generated processes, as consumers want more control of the practices that shape their lives. We hear the term co-creation quite a bit in industry conferences, as consumers seek to work with brands to create products and programs that suit their needs. Ours is essentially the same concept, with buyers and renters seeking vacation ownership products that meet their vacation needs, when they want it and how they want the process to transact,” Kogelman added.

Timeshare Resale Analysis Released by April 12, 2014

Posted by Steve Luba in : News & Events, Timeshare Resale , comments closed has released the results of an evaluation of owner resale information based on the consumer advertisements placed on the resale leader’s website.

Timeshares for saleConducted by the College of Hospitality, Retail, and Sport Management at the University of South Carolina, the independent study measured information from over 18,000 advertisements placed by owners looking to sell their timeshares through

Among the findings:

“This is a significant sample size of actual timeshare owners participating in the secondary market,” said Wesley Kogelman, President and CEO, “This isn’t a theoretical discussion about possible trends, but actually where the rubber meets the road.”

“What strikes me is how closely aligned the advertised prices are compared to earlier resale research conducted by ARDA. For example, the ARDA resale study last year said that buyer intenders, either new buyers or current owners looking for more product, had an expectation of price between $10,000 and $12,000.

“The overall average maintenance fee charged per interval is $822 according to the 2013 ARDA State of the Industry report, so it is interesting that the maintenance fees included in our resale ads are so much lower,” added Kogelman. “Perhaps this shows that maintenance fees are not the primary resale motivator that many suggest.”

Resorts from 47 states were identified in the analysis, showing the national scope of the site and how comprehensive the site is compared to many resale sites and companies which only serve specific resort brands or geographical areas of the United States.

The most popular states represented were:

“The top five states in our data mirror the states with the largest percentage of timeshare units as identified by ARDA in the State of the Industry report, so we are pleased to see that our information is in line with those findings,” added Kogelman.

The ARDA World Convention is the world’s largest gathering of timeshare industry executives, with nearly 3,000 participants expected to attend and discuss trends and strategies important to the growth of the industry.

With many of these buyers using online outlets such as ours, we want to help develop a program that will be beneficial for these resorts in need of a resale solution,” stated Kogelman.
