I’m Michael Santos, sharing another lesson I learned from the experts who work at Timeshare Compliance. Every lesson I learn from those former timeshare sales people convinces me that they’re doing an awesome job in helping people who want to cancel their timeshare contracts.
Today I learned about “pitching heat” when selling timeshares. I asked them what they meant.
They told me some sales people in the timeshare industry would routinely promise more than the developer would deliver when selling timeshares. They called the tactic pitching heat.
“What types of promises would they make?” I listened in amazement with the descriptions they gave.
- They told me some timeshare sales people pitched heat by promising buyers they would have VIP status if they would sign the contract.
- They told me some timeshare sales people pitched heat by promising buyers that a limousine would be available to them when they used the timeshare.
- They told me some timeshare sales people pitched heat by promising buyers they could qualify for free upgrades if they took advantage of the investment opportunity immediately.
- They told me some timeshare sales people pitched heat by promising buyers that the developer would purchase the timeshare back if they discovered that the unit didn’t work for them.
- They told me some timeshare sales people pitched heat by promising buyers that their maintenance fees would never go higher and that their interest rates on mortgages would always be comparable to the prime-lending rate.
None of those promises were true, and the timeshare salesperson knew it. At Timeshare Compliance, our team would describe such misrepresentations as fraudulent, invalidating the legitimacy of the timeshare contract.
Although most people purchased timeshares from honest and ethical timeshare sales reps, our records suggest that deceptive tactics victimized a significant percentage of people during timeshare sales presentations. When those people want to cancel timeshare contracts, the experts at Timeshare Compliance can help.
