The industry continues to evolve, and timeshares are adapting. Flexibility and unique experiences are driving renewed interest, especially among millennial and Gen X owners.
Timeshares are transforming from the traditional fixed-week model of ownership into more flexible, vacation clubs with exclusive perks. These new options are appealing to younger generations and reshaping the image of timeshare as an outdated industry with pushy promotional tactics.
A major change is coming to the way timeshares are marketed, regulated, and sold. The industry’s trade association, ARDA, and its Resort Owners Coalition (ARDA-ROC), are working with lawmakers at the local, state, and federal levels to help ensure that regulations maintain a proper balance of consumer protection, economic development, and a high-level of transparency for consumers.
With a number of high-profile lawsuits and regulatory actions bringing attention to the timeshare industry, ARDA-ROC is fighting to make sure that legislators are aware of the benefits of timeshares, the positive economic impact they have on communities, and the need to maintain a balanced approach to regulation, including consumer protection, in order to keep timeshares healthy for years to come.
Florida legislators are pushing to redefine how timeshare properties are valued in the state, potentially saving a massive amount of money for companies like Disney World and Westgate Resorts. If passed, the bill would allow resales to determine a property’s fair market value, which could drastically reduce taxes paid to city and county governments.
