Escape To Paradise / renting timeshare

1 SC, United States Review updated:

I paid $299.00 in 2007 to list my TimeShare with this company
for rent. It has not been rented. It is 2009. My husband and I have decided to sell our TimeShare. I called [protected] to
ask about why it hasn't been rented, but mainly to see about
getting it sold. I spoke with Bill Jefferson, who identified himself
as the Head Manager of Escape to Paradise. When I asked him what the owner's name is, he stated that it was John Hofferbert.
I asked to speak with him, but was told he was out of the office at that time. Bill said that he would give John a message to call me
back. That was on May 12th, 2009. It is May 19th and I have not received a call from John Hofferbert or Bill Jefferson.

I was told it would cost me $499.00 more to upgrade to a For Sale
Ad from a For Rent Ad. So my total would ultimately be $798.00
for listing my TimeShare with Escape to Paradise. Bill did tell me
that the TimeShare would definitely sell for $3.00 a point, because they go to or host showings for TimeShares Purchases in
very prestigious areas where people have the money to purchase
TimeShares. Unfortunately, we don't have the money to upgrade
and take a chance on the TimeShare not selling. Even if it did,
who would be responsible for the deed and title search, transfer of
deed, maintenance profile, closing costs?... I don't know a lot about these matters, but I am learning in "the school of hard knocks".
