I Love Aruba Re: Need Rental Week 2

I really really needed Week 2 at a reasonable price. I already had my flights booked and Week 1 booked and the car reserved. It was Week 2 or nothing. Everything on ALL the timeshare resorts websites and all the bulletin boards were "off the charts" as to what owners wanted for a one week rental at a timeshare. Since I own four timeshares in Aruba and St Thomas, I know approximately what the maintenance fees are, and as a real estate agent, I know that owners want SOME profit, but holy cow! most owners expect WAY too much profit to rent out a week they can't use. They compare their timeshare week to what a hotel might charge. That's an apples and oranges comparison which doesn't work.

Anyway an owner contacted me privately with a reasonable price and I jumped on it!!! Note: that's usually what it takes to get a timeshare rented out. If your maintenance fee is around 500, you can get it rented for around $850 to $900. People want $1200 to 1800 to $2100, and then they have a hard time getting it rented. Some folks wanted $3,000 to $4000 for a studio! Maybe they can get it , but I just wouldn't go there. That's astronomical.

Anyhow I am very pleased with my rental and I'm sure the owner is too. A win-win situation.
