Entertainment Magazine: Timeshares

Las Vegas time shares take hit from the economy

Even though the struggling economy and recession nearly wiped out the Las Vegas time share industry, Las Vegas is still the most-visited city in the U.S.

But, one of the victims of the recession is the time share deal.

Las Vegas companies that offered timeshare presentations with special discounts to low cost or free hotel stays, have become a financial drain on hotels, resorts and casinos.Even though time share ownership had become an impressively growing industry, the economic conditions are better for short term rentals. So, most of the big players have shifted their timeshare promotions into bundled Vacation Packages.

There are still some timeshare-type vacation opportunities in Las Vegas.

Timeshares in Las Vegas, Nevada

Host to more than 37,000,000 tourists a year, Las Vegas is the most-visited city in the United States, so it’s a great place to own a timeshare. The Vegas casinos seal their city's reputation as a 24/7 party town for consenting adults, and southern Nevada's outdoor resources make it a family tourist attraction as well.

Current vacation ownership prices average $11,000, making Vegas timeshares a $3,000 bargain when compared to costs nationwide.

Las Vegas Tourist Attractions

Las Vegas's many attractions tend to become overshadowed by the glitz and glamour of the casinos, and a Vegas timeshare ensures its owner's place in the heart of the action.

Not all Vegas timeshares sit on desert land, however. In fact, it's possible to own luxury houseboat time, if cruising Lake Mead sounds better than gambling on the strip. With its year-round sports, Vegas offers nonstop hiking, biking, sailing, and fishing.

Families love the MGM Grand Theme Park and outings to the Grand Canyon or the Hoover Dam. Red Rock Canyon and Valley Fire State Park offer tours, as does Ethel M's chocolate factory.

Vegas Timeshare Promotions and Packages

If they shop around, savvy travelers can get a luxury Las Vegas vacation for only $50 a night as part of a timeshare vacation package. These "try-before-you-buy” timeshare promotions include a property tour, a presentation, and a pitch.

But they include lots of inducements to try your luck at the casinos or dine at fabulous Vegas restaurants. The tourist traffic is heavy year-round, so a Las Vegas timeshare readily swaps for time elsewhere.
