Here at Premier Timeshare Resale, we talk a lot about why timeshares are a great investment. But, don’t take our word for it. I sat down with Phyllis Kirchner, a timeshare owner at Marriott’s MountainSide in Park City, Utah for over a decade, and asked her what her timeshare experience has been over the years.
While many timeshare owners choose to buy their timeshare as a vacation home, family was the motivator for Bob and Phyllis Kirchner.
“We bought the timeshare because we have family that surrounds the Park City area and it was an easy place for all of us to gather and spend time together,” says Phyllis.
Coming from Idaho Falls themselves, family from Boise, Idaho, Salt Lake City, Utah, and Denver, Colorado, could easily find their way to Park City’s central location for some quality family time.
“It was better than having everyone go to your house when you don’t have the room and your house getting messy from the whole family being there.”
“In fall, I love all the colors. You can take the lift to Sundance and it’s just so quiet and peaceful. All of the trees are orange and yellow and it’s a beautiful sight. In the summer, it’s the perfect temperature to layout by the pool,” says Phyllis. “It’s just a perfect getaway.”
We have highlighted Park City and the MountainSide Resort as great all-season getaways. But, don’t think that buying a timeshare in one city sticks you there forever. The Kirchner’s timeshare allows them to exchange it for Marriott timeshares all over the country, including one of the couple’s favorite locations, Hawaii. Where would the Kirchners buy a second timeshare? Why paradise of course!
“If I were to buy another timeshare, it’d probably be in Hawaii because to live there it’s so expensive. Timeshares are a way to live in a place that you couldn’t afford otherwise,” says Phyllis. “Or, ‘get your fix’ of locations you wouldn’t want to live in year ‘round.”
Whether you’re buying a timeshare to relax on the golden beaches of warm Oahu or to get the family together for Christmas, buying a timeshare resale can create memories that will last a lifetime. Plant your roots in any of the thousands of resorts that offer timeshares, and you’ll always have a special place to call home.
“I do feel like it’s a home away from home when we go there,” concludes Phyllis as she gazes past me into memories of Thanksgiving dinners in the red mountains and walks along Main Street. One thing is sure, the Kirchner’s time in Park City is something they’ll never forget.
