    There is much misinformation included here. The average price of a timeshare is just over $21,000 with the average maintenance fee just below $1,000 annually.

    Most timeshares in the US are not real estate at all, but point based. Owners are not guaranteed access at all, but must make reservations, oftentimes 13 months in advance.
