HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. How does the process work for timeshare owners?
We try and keep this as simple as possible. The first step is for you to decide whether this is the best usage of your timeshare for this year. If so, print and complete the rental agreement and send it to us or fill out the online form. We will verify the week with the resort (check in day, etc.), place your week into the rental program, and send you an email confirmation that we have done so. After this we will do our very best to rent as much of your week as possible.
2. When do I get my rental check for my timeshare week?
Rental disbursements occur no later than 30 days following the last day of the month your week falls within. For example, if your week starts September 1, your rental disbursement will occur no later than Oct 31st.
3. How do you generate rental bookings?
Unlike other rental companies KEES will only accept weeks from timeshare owners at resorts that we have a relationship with. We do this so that that we can ensure the best possible service to the owners and rental guests. KEES will utilize numerous online booking engines through our network of partners and our own inbound reservations call center.
4. How will we know if our unit/week was rented? Check on your status by CLICKING HERE
Owner's are responsible for contacting KEES to check on the status of their listed week. KEES does not send out any type of notification so please be sure to give us a call before your week begins.
5. What other fees can I expect?
Besides the commission there would only be occupancy related charges. This means if we rent your unit to a 4 night stay and then another 3 night stay the occupancy expense would be a cleaning fee.
6. How do I get information for my tax purposes?
If your weeks produces in $600 or more we will generate and mail you a Form 1099 in compliance IRS standards.
7. Is there any guarantee?
Unfortunately, no. What we can guarantee is that we will do our very best to provide you with the best possible service.
8. How do you determine rental rates?
Rental rates are determined by the market. Factors considered are; time of year, special events in the area, amenities of the resort, and the size/type of unit.
9. What is a “marketing period?”
Period of time between listing the unit/week for rent and the last night of your unit/week.
