Purchasing a timeshare is a dangerous decision that can have serious repercussions. One company's research has determined that timeshares are not an investment and will depreciate faster than any other purchase a consumer can make. "When you purchase a timeshare you are only purchasing the chance to have time at a particular resort. There is no real value and nothing you can touch when you are sitting at home", says Sean Austin.
Austin is the co-owner and founder of Timeshare Advocacy International, a company that specializes in helping clients extricate themselves from unfairand often illegaltimeshare contracts. The four-year-old firm, based in Mt. Juliet, TN right outside Nashville, has hundreds of clients from all over North America. TAI is often the avenue of last resort for those burdened with unwanted timeshares, but customers usually find that the companys strategyto fight fire with fireis one they should have turned to first. If theres one thing that works in fighting back against less-than-ethical timeshare outfits, its those companies own stock in trade: persistence.
Austin embraced his particular niche after retiring from a 21-year career in the Navy and going to work in sales for the largest timeshare company in world. I was never more miserable in all my life, he says. He not only quit but began helping people get out of their timeshares, not a case of biting the hand that had fed him but rather one of taking up arms against a ravenous beast.
