DO NOT PAY ANY FEE UPFRONT These people who take your money first are just SCAMS!

I'm sorry to say there is no market for timeshares. We couldn't even give away the one we inherited from my FIL a year ago. It's a really nice timeshare too but no body wants them. We were willing to give it away just to get away from paying the maintenance fees. We finally found a land sales company that took it as part of a 7 property deal. There was two nice lots and the rest were junk.

Now for the interesting part. We had to prove to the timeshare that we sold it and it was recorded. You would not believe all the hoops we had to jump though to get the name changed to the buyer and from what I've read a lot of timeshares do be forewarned!
