    And here is the perfect RTU drop.

    Now Wanda and Tim. That is our timeshare plan. It is in perpetuity so you’ll be paying your annual maintenance fees for the rest of your natural life including when you become to old, ill or physically incapable of traveling. Then, because it will be part of your estate your kids will carry on and continue to pay the annuals for the rest of their life and then the contract and costs will pass on to your grandchildren.

    Now you can get involved any time you want. Today, tomorrow, next week or next month. We’re not going to pressure you to make a lifetime commitment however, if you do start the process today what our developer will do for you is drop the forever and ever perpetuity scheme and instead, you can apply today for our 15 year plan and at the end of that time, unless you renew then, you are done…..

    KaChing!!!!

    The idea of smaller units is cool but if they market the normal TS way sales will plunge to the depths of hell.

    Marketing already moans because they can only invite warm bodies between 25 and 75 years old; if they had it all their way they’d invite and get paid for anyone from 18 to 100 years old.

    That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it!

    Not being so “hip,” I had to look up the word “Yurts.” Not sure a family of 6 would be turned on by a “Yurt.” However, your last paragraph struck a resonant cord. You might want to expand that concept in a future column. After all, the current younger crowd is pretty internet savvy. Disney continues to build RTU resorts. But, as the millennials age, will they be interested in developer lifetime contracts when they see them on Ebay for $1?

    We been selling RTU here in Mexico for decades and people love the out; or, as mentioned, the option to renew at the end of the term.

    What most reps don’t know is that when TS started in the USA many of the original developers were stuck with CONDOS they couldn’t unload so they adopted the Hapimag TS formula and that is how the developers got out from near bankruptcy.

    Thinking they were wise for not going broke back then those developers just didn’t want the property back in 10 or 20 years. Good riddance, or so they thought!
