    Have read a lot and seems decent. What I don’t understand on some resale’s is the # of points for sale that do not match to anything in the directory.
    This resort has nothing that matches 300k 1bdrm deluxe prime 203k
    Anyone know why this is and is that wasteful?

    Contracts and points charts have nothing to do with each other. Wyndham sells contracts with as few as 56,000 points, maybe fewer, at resorts where you can't get an off-season closet for 56K.

    Use your other 97,000 to book a weekend someplace or deposit it and book two weeks next year.

    Can’t tell if your getting a good deal or not without knowing what your buying.
    What resort is the contract deeded at or are you buying a CWA contract ?
    What are the MFs ?

    The MF quote seems accurate. We own at Oceanside and our current MFs
    are $1772/year including program fee. For our 330kpts, that's $5.37 per 1k pts,
    which matches your quoted 1600/300 = $5.33 per 1k pts.

    More questions! I have yet to successfully close on any resale’s I have tried to purchase. One was a bait and switch -was told not selling that one anymore but has a more expensive one (even though I still see the ad) one didn’t advertise any fees then wanted buyer to pay them all. This last one I agreed to price and closing cost+transfer fee then they wanted 2018 MF’s even though 1st use for me would be 2019 and additional $25 for estoppel an additional admin fee and to pay for title insurance if I wanted it.....,
    Is this normal?
