California timeshare market shifts
Most California timeshare companies have shifted their focus from selling ownerships to providing discount stays at their facilities or memberships with perks.
Traditional California time share promotions usually involve an hour or more requirement to listen to a presentation in order to get a reduced rate, or free stay, on a destination site. That model has dried up with the economy.
