I bought a timeshare at Elysian Beach Resort in 2003. I have never used it and now I financially can't afford it. What is the best way to advertise it being that I'm in the states not St. Thomas.

Your best bet is to place it in the hands of a good real estate agent. I would recommend John Foster Real Estate for a start.

I see them on ebay from time to time. There seem to be a few seller's specializing in re-selling timeshares. Most of them are for Bluebeard's Beach Club, but every now and then an Elysian unit is up for auction.

Sorry to see you might have to sell it.

I'm sorry you are unable to take advantage of your timeshare at the Elysian. It's a beautiful place.

I agree with krmlaw about redweek.com and also myresortnetwork.com and homeaway.com Both of these are either free or very low cost to advertise. The rule of thumb is never to make any upfront payments to agencies that promise they will sell it for you. There are a gazillion and one scams out there regarding timeshare sales.

A consideration is to rent your unit to cover the cost of the maintenance fees for the year until you can sell. I hope you realize that all fees will have to be paid up to rent it to another. You can also advertise rental on both redweek.com and myresortnetwork.com

Good luck!
