Several timeshares are listed for $1 on eBay. Some companies offer a deed-back program, which lets owners who have paid off their timeshare simply return the time-share to the timeshare company.
Is it possible to buy one of the $1 timeshares, go on vacation and then deed it back without incurring extra fees or paying the HOA?
I was listening to Clark Howard who had a caller ask about timeshares. First he pointed out eBay has $1 timeshares, so don't pay more than that. Then he recommended the caller ask the timeshare company if they had a deed-back program (since it lets them resell it's in their best interest).
Pretty sure this trick would show up on travel hacking sites if it worked, but wondering why it doesn't.
