Timeshare proposal to buy

Timeshare proposal to buy

Has anyone delt with or received a call from Northwest Realty International based in Tacoma Washington with a offer to buy their Krystal timeshare in Cancun? We were contacted and received a proposal to buy our's for a specified amount. No upfront money or any mention of wanting any money from us at all. They are claiming that they actually have a buyer willing to pay the amount specified. All we did at this point was signed the proposal (not a contract) agreeing to the sale price. Waiting to see what happens next. Can't find anything on the internet, went to their web site. Looks like they are a realty/property management company. Does anyone know if Krystal is "maybe" buying back their timeshares? Heard they were bought out. Maybe they hired this company to buy back their units. Does anyone have any input?

Why on earth would one pay money up front for part of a transfer of a timeshare unit when all monies due for payment associated with said transfer could be taken from the sale price and the balance remitted to the seller after all deduction have been accounted for. How gullible does one have to be to see the stupidity of such actions?

Thank you my Mom has one as well and has had calls from Mr Sosa. My Dad is not well and this would have been a god send for funds lost a long time ago. I want to thank you for all your time and listing emails it allowed me to read, learn and help her to stay away. If would have been tough for the two of them to loose more being in the eighties and struggling further for lost funds.I feel blessed that there are still people as yourself and others to rely on best of health sc

I have chosen not to pursue the sale and rental of my timeshares. They have called a couple of times but I told them my lawyer didn't recommend it and I am gun shy after having been burned before with one of these deals.

I'd be very careful; got the same proposal from another company shortly after being scammed by another entity saying it had a buyer for my weeks in Puerto Vallarta.

If you are asking for a wire transfer, you should open another account and close it once the money is there, then you don't have to worry that they have your bank information. That is what we are doing. | noticed that it says they are not listed with the Better Business bureau, but we checked the BBB and they rated them A+.

I just received a call from the same company wanting to buy my time share for $22,000. I figured this was a scam considering you cannot find any information at all online. Are there any legitimate companies out there that you can sell your timeshare through? ?
