Can I sell my timeshare back to Wyndham? Through Wyndham Cares “Certified Exit – Backed by Wyndham“, owners are able to return their timeshare back to Wyndham if their loan is paid off and all maintenance fees are up-to-date. Contact Wyndham Cares directly to review your options.
If you stop paying on your timeshare loan, you face foreclosure. In California, the majority of foreclosures are non-judicial foreclosures where the lender cannot receive a deficiency judgment after the sale of the property.
Contact Wyndham Cares at 866-434-9046 or learn more about the new Certified Exit – backed by WyndhamTM. Travel preferences and finances change. When they do, Wyndham Cares can help you maximize your ownership, navigate your finances, or figure out if timeshare is still right for you.
Someone has to legally prepare the purchase agreement, and title transfer, and submit the new deed to the county records office and Wyndham. I recommend using a Timeshare Title Company to make sure it’s done correctly. You will also have to pay $299 directly to Wyndham for each deed (ouch!) – that’s their fee.
*The average cost of a Wyndham timeshare is $21,000, plus annual maintenance fees from $725 over the course of 40 years, which is equivalent to $3.40 each day. Financing costs and loan length are not considered.
Wyndham points are generally valued around 0.9 cents per point — if a hotel stay is worth around 0.9 cents per point, then it’s likely worth it to use them.
Getting out of a timeshare The main way to get out of a timeshare is to sell it. To do this you’ll have to make sure all fees are paid. However, timeshares can be very hard to sell. Most people make a loss when they sell them.
If you are either left a timeshare in a will or are the legal heir of someone who owned a timeshare and died without a will, you may choose to refuse to accept your inheritance. In legal terms, this is generally called “ renunciation of property.”
Some people just stop paying on their timeshares. If you do walk away, don’t be surprised to see a big hit to your credit score and to start getting regular calls from collection agencies. You might regret your purchase, but you did sign a legally binding contract.
In addition to higher interest rates, timeshares can also be hard to sell because most timeshare contracts financially obligate the timeshare purchaser to pay lifetime maintenance and special assessment fees. Maintenance fees tend to cover various operating costs and are similar to a condo’s HOA fees in that regard.
Costs to Get Out of a Timeshare On average, it costs about $5,000 to $6,000 and takes 12–18 months to get out of your timeshare contract using a timeshare exit company. But the cost and the timeframe can vary depending on a number of factors including, how many contracts are attached to your timeshare.
For a reservation made within 15 days or less prior to check-in, you have 24 hours to cancel your reservation without forfeiting your points.

Does Wyndham have a buyback program?
The short answer to owners asking “will Wyndham buy back my timeshare” is no, Wyndham does not have an established program where owners can directly petition them to buy back their timeshare.
You could sell your timeshare of course, but there’s another option. Gifting your timeshare ownership to your children or a friend will give them and their families years of happy, relaxed holidays to look forward to and look back on, as you have enjoyed yourself for so many years.
