I got a great job opportunity in London, and I am definitely moving. The process of packing up has been relatively smooth. However, I am trying to sell my vacation home, which I doubt I will get out to anymore, when the Riviera is a two hour flight from my new home. I feel like I’ve tried everything: ebay, selling agent, and I’m afraid I’ll be stuck with it forever. Any tricks to selling these?

All real estate pretty much boils down to one thing.....price.

Moving to London sounds exciting. Maybe you might look into a timeshare relief agency. People hire selling agents, but I’ve seen timeshares go for one dollar on Ebay, which doesn’t bode well for the selling market.

Where is it located? That would be my first clue as to why it isn't selling. Is it a condo or house? Are there HOA fees? Easy access? Condition? Price range?

I have had a second home for about 15 years and have seen a lot of marketing efforts w/ other properties around me . . . and do have some ideas, depending on location, etc.
