Grand Solmar, a leader in exquisite vacation destinations through Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, wants people to be aware of all the scams that are online this summer. One of the most prominent scams that people may come across when looking to plan a vacation this year is people duping others out of money when it comes to timeshares.

People who are advertising timeshare resales sometimes may have a hidden agenda when they post about it online. Not only do they promote a cheaper price than intended, but often times they fib about the condition of the actual timeshare unit. Some of these problems include a different location or an exaggeration of the view that it might offer. Another issue of these units is that they might be more outdated than anticipated. The appliances and fixtures may be older than actually advertised. The Grand Solmar Resale awareness team suggests that people proceed with caution when looking into these timeshare resales this summer.

Grand Solmar knows that when it comes to a vacation, having a traveler’s best interests in mind is one of the most important aspects of the industry. Whether providing guests with their dream vacations in style and service, or even offering advice on how to avoid becoming the victim of a travel scam, Grand Solmar is always trying to find ways to fill these needs.

To help keep the public well informed, the Grand Solmar Resales website will provide valuable information about how these type of transactions really work in order to avoid someone getting taken advantage of. Here is some of the most important information to remember:

1. Advertisements aren’t always truthful l- Some of the units advertised online can be quite old.

It’s very uncommon for the actual location of the unit to be revealed on one of these resale sites.

2. Perks not included – Whenever someone buys a timeshare week at one of Grand Solmar’s outstanding resorts, there are different levels of membership that range from good to outstanding benefit levels. These change and improve as the company continues to grow, so any older units usually come with older packages that are not as up-to-date as they could be since the resort and company have since updated the services that they offer.

3. Watch out for hidden fees – Whenever a resale happens, there are certain, sometimes-complex steps that need to be taken, including document notarization, taxes being paid and more. Whatever low rate these online salesmen are offering often does not include these fees and won’t end up being what the buyer actually pays in the end.

Grand Solmar hopes that this website, which will debut soon, members can avoid becoming the victim of a resale scam.
