The online timeshare resale leader has been connecting owners with buyers since 2000.
Online PR News – 22-January-2014 – Tampa, FL – BuyaTimeshare.com, the internet’s leading timeshare resale and rental advertising company, celebrates its 14th anniversary this week – reflecting on the company’s role as a pioneer in the online resale sector.
“Longevity in business, especially in the timeshare resale industry, can be an elusive exercise, which is why being in business for 14 years is a major accomplishment,” said BuyaTimeshare.com president and CEO Wesley Kogelman. “According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only about one-third of businesses make it beyond 10 years, so we are extremely pleased to have persevered for as long as we have.”
As with many successful online businesses, Kogelman began his venture in 2000 during his college years while obtaining his Bachelor Degree in Business at the University of Tampa. With e-commerce in its infancy and the emergence of an unfamiliar company called Google, Kogelman saw the possibility of meeting the needs of timeshare owners looking for an effective method to advertise their timeshares for sale.
“We consider ourselves a technology company first, having created a platform which provides owners the ability to market their timeshares online to potential buyers from around the world. Before, owners were at the mercy of resorts and the corner real estate broker’s office, but the tech revolution has brought transparency and opportunity to every owner,” added Kogelman.
The company’s effectiveness is obvious, with over $169 million in confirmed offers generated for advertisers in the last two years from prospective buyers through the company’s website. Kogelman has expanded his strategy over the years to include rentals and implement innovative techniques such as the Timeshare Pulse offer notification system – allowing owners to take control of the negotiation process.
To celebrate the anniversary, BuyaTimeshare.com will be providing the first 14 new customers who contract to advertise their timeshares for sale with an upgrade of 14 weeks of exclusive Hot Deals promotion at no additional cost - a $1,400 value. This offer will run from now through the month of January.
