    Have you been considering joining II for their great Getaway program? Or, maybe you need an inexpensive trader to use in II or in one of the independent exchange companies? Well, here's your chance!

    I am giving away a "Flex season" (spring/fall) studio at Falcon Point resort in Avon, Colorado. Currently, I have November 13, 2015 booked on this ownership. The week has not yet been deposited in any exchange company. The date for this year can be changed to other fall or spring dates for no fee.

    This week has amazingly low annual MFs: $196. Now, you might think that for such a low MF, the resort must be a dump. Not at all! It is a Premier (Gold Palm) rated resort in II.

    There are two reasons why the MFs are so low:
    1) This resort charges far less MFs for studios than it does for larger units.
    2) Colorado allows resorts to charge different amounts for peak season and low season weeks. (As far as I know, Colorado is the only state that does this.)This week is charged much less in MFs than a ski week would be.

    Because this is an off-season studio, it's trade power is quite low. However, in II, all trade power restrictions are removed at 59 days before check-in (the so-called "Flexchange" period). *Quality* restrictions remain in place (although they are not as strict), so if you want a nice resort, it's important to own at a nice resort, even if you are trading during Flexchange. Currently, I can see several 2-bedroom Sheraton and Marriott units in Orlando for mid-April with this week.

    Frankly, it's hard for me to give up this week, but I've purchased at another resort that gives me multiple low-cost opportunities to deposit off-season weeks into II, and now I have more II traders than I can use.

    I have already paid half of the 2015 MFs, and would like that reimbursed. The other half of the MFs (a whopping $98!) is due in June. There is also a $50 transfer fee, which I would like the new owner to pay. I will handle all other closing costs.

    Also, I have a 2103 week from this resort that is sitting in my II account. It expires November 15, 2015. I would be willing to transfer that week to the new owner for reimbursement of the $196 in MFs. I think we can get this ownership transferred and set up in II in 6 weeks or less, so that should still leave some time to use the week from 2013 (if you want it.)

    If interested, please PM me!

    Hi Judy,

    Can you clarify what weeks are included in the spring/fall flex season?

    Thanks! Mel

    I now have someone who wants this week and has sent me the information for deeding. Plus, I have a second person who wants this week if the first person changes his mind. So, this week is no longer available. TUG rocks! :cheer:

    Mel, I saw your post on the Buying, Selling, Renting forum. Although my Falcon Point week is gone, I also have a week at its sister resort, Eagle Point, and am willing to give you that one instead. That week may work better for you anyway, as it is a one-bedroom in Vail. Please check your PM box for a message from me.

    I can't remember exactly which weeks my Falcon Point and Eagle Point ownerships float, and the deeds don't say. But I will try to contact the resort later when they open for the day.

    Thanks Judy. I replied to your PM about the other TS. Definitely interested in that one - seems like it would work even better for me and would fill out the II side of the equation for me in the "master plan" that is developing on my other thread.

    Or just just to keep things simple it could provide me with a decent CO week to use straight up every couple of years. Thanks again:)
