Buying a Villa

Do not know if you guys can help, but you all have such a wide knowledge of Orlando. I am thinking about buying a Villa to rent in Orlando but do not know really where to start. I am going out there again in June for the 5th time. Can anybody point me in the direction of where to go to

1. Re: Buying a Villa

Thinking of buying a week or longer in a timeshare resort? Or thinking of buying a year round property?

I would think twice before planning on renting. Consider there are appprox just under 100 Timeshare Resorts with many 3, 2 and one bedroom units.

Now, think about how easy it is to get a week or longer into these units...even without owning.

RCI has lists in different areas of the internet offering weeks for as low as $199. (Last Call). Timeshare Users Group list last minute rentals for no higher than $700 a week...and most go for $399 in Orlando.

Interval International also has super low cost weeks, and nearly every resort in the area is super...much competition. Resale week in Orange Lakes 2 bed 2 bath just went for under $1000. Check out ebay.

I would not buy to rent out a unit, espically as far away as you are.

Only about 7 weeks are super strong in Orlando (Now). Much sit empty the rest of the year (or they close parts of the resorts down to save $$)

If you want to check out pricing & whats available check www.realtor.com (offer approx 10 to 20% below...things have cooled off in the US, esp in Fl).

For resale T/S, one of TAs advertisers is rated very honest:


Also, www.redweek.com www.holidaygroup.com www.tstoday.com www.tug2.net classifieds (over priced at times)

There are tons of companies to stay away from.
