Timeshare Buyer and Rental Offers for 2011 Indicate Another Strong Year for BuyaTimeshare.com

Nearly $100 Million in Qualified Offers Were Delivered to Customers of the Online Timeshare Resale and Rental Advertising Company

MERRIMACK, NH--(Marketwire - Feb 8, 2012) - BuyaTimeshare.com, the online leader for timeshare owners looking to sell or rent their timeshares, reports strong resale and rental activity in 2011 as nearly $100 million in qualified offers from people looking to buy or rent timeshare were delivered to advertisers during the year.

The company provided $89,069,303 in offers to timeshare owners who posted their products for sale by-owner on the company's website last year. Over 4,300 confirmed offers were sent by BuyaTimeshare.com as legitimate offers due to the technological capabilities of the company's industry-leading, consumer-driven website.

These offers are what substantiate the credibility of the company's efforts to attract potential buyers and renters according to Wes Kogelman, president and CEO, BuyaTimeshare.com.

"We have created architecture in our website that allows people looking to buy or rent timeshare to easily place an offer directly to that advertiser," said Kogelman. "The discussion takes place online between the owner and buyer or renter and, because of the structure of the website, those offers are technologically verified as authentic offers."

The company has even added a captcha service on the website, those strange characters that users have to enter into a field to prove they are actual people and not some sort of computer program generating fictitious offers. This service adds to the legitimacy of the offers received by advertisers.

"Our main efforts are in the search optimization area where people can find us on Google searches for terms such as 'timeshare,' 'buy timeshare' or 'sell timeshare.' Those people that find us are part of the 673,000 people searching the term 'timeshare' on Google every month and are genuinely looking for information on the product," added Kogelman.

Rental activity was also considerable, with the BuyaTimeshare.com website generating $8,739,008 in offers to rent timeshare across 4,748 offers. That $1,840 rental price per offer would more than cover an owner's average maintenance fee.

Much of this activity takes place as a result of the innovative Timeshare Pulse feature on the website, as a login system allows existing customers the ability to manage their own accounts. Sellers can now adjust the asking price for their timeshare themselves, based on the offers they receive, without the need to go through the company's customer service department. Customers can also post resort reviews, as the new resort pages allow anyone to make a review if they have an account with the company. These reviews will be very helpful for visitors looking to buy timeshare or rent timeshare at a particular resort.

"It is this interactive aspect of our site that sets us apart from most of our competitors. We encourage buyers and sellers to actively engage on our site, not just to place offers but to fully plan their next vacation," Kogelman said.
