Resort Listing and Selling Services
We at Orion Resort & Campground Sales are enthusiastic advocates of the resort business and have had the pleasure of helping many families get into the business by selling them a resort.
The resort property market is very active. There is a steady stream of people looking to buy and we need to meet their needs, as we are constantly depleting our listings. Are you thinking of selling? We guarantee you the highest quality service and an equitable price for your property. We also guarantee utmost confidentiality, if that is your wish and we also can offer tremendous exposure to the buying public through our conventional advertising methods and through this web site. If confidentiality is not a big concern and you currently have a web site, we will provide a link from your listing here on our site to your own site, so that we optimize exposure to prospective buyers. If you do not currently have a web site, because we believe so strongly that a resort web site expedites selling, we can develop a site for you. Regardless of approach, confidential or full disclosure, we at Orion Resort & Campground Sales care about our business and care about our clients. We are a small company with a powerful team and a great track record, so when the time comes for you to sell your resort, please keep us in mind. We'll handle the sale of your property with the care, concern and sincerity of knowing how special your resort is and how important the continued good care of your guests is to you.
Please print this page as an introduction and an insight of our style in handling resort sales.

It is important for us to keep informed of the resort industry by reading and attending tourism workshops. We have taken many classes on Contract Law, Accounting and Taxes, which helps us serve our clients (Resort Sellers). We work closely with Sellers' accountants and attorneys when structuring a sale.
Since 1973 we've handled over 150 Resort/Lodging sales which have ranged from fishing camps to campgrounds to full-service luxury resorts with food, liquor, houseboats, marinas and other amenities. Those resorters, whose properties we have sold, have been very pleased with our services, particularly in regard to thoroughness and the fact that the sales stay together. We are always delighted to furnish references.
The strength of our abilities is hard work, personal service, aggressive marketing, "straight talk" and down to earth, common sense in regard to price and selling conditions, which the resort can handle. We prefer to handle a few choice listings, do a good job on all and sell a very high percentage.
SERVICES INCLUDED IN LISTING AND SELLING A RESORT:
The typical seller is so close to their (baby) resort that their emotional involvement sometimes clouds their goals. As a seller's counselor we first identify their goals and strive to provide sound, big picture business advice. Having long term and repeat clients are compliments we take very seriously.
We wish you a great season and rewarding life as a resort operator. When the time comes, whether it is now, a few years from now, or many years into the future, we would most appreciate an opportunity to discuss with you the sale of your resort. We look forward to hearing from you!
