The simple truth is that timeshares can lose 50% of their value the moment you sign the contract*, the price you paid was for the value you perceived at the time of purchase.  After that there is the additional timeshares being released onto the market year on year and the increasing timeshare maintenance fees.  The fact is that the market is flooded with unwanted timeshares and the longer you leave it the more you will pay in timeshare maintenance fees and special assessment fees which may cost you thousands!
