How Does A Timeshare Work

Let’s start out with the basics: what is a timeshare? The actual definition of a timeshare according to the dictionary is an arrangement whereby several joint owners have the right to use a property as a vacation home under a time-sharing agreement. Basically, you are sharing a unit with others, but “own” different weeks (we will get into more about this later in the article).
