How hard is it to find an owner to rent from at 11 months out?

    I'm just curious how difficult it is to find owners willing to rent out 10-17 points for $14.50 a point who own at GF/BW/BC/Poly/WL/BLT if the renter is willing to pay in full via paypal upon reservation confirmation without having to worry about getting scammed?

    This make more sense to me than using David's because it cuts out the middle man and owners get paid in full upon booking.

    Please be careful here, because we don't allow buying/selling/renting in the discussion forums.

    I'm just considering the difference between owning vs renting. I was thinking of picking up a saratoga contract, but by the looks of availability at 7 months it seems like even if I were to own DVC, I wouldn't have access to studios at the resorts I mentioned very easily.

    IMO you will have difficulty finding an owner to rent 11months out for that price. Most seem to be charging around $17 pp.

    So you’d just be looking for a single night in a studio?

    IMHO, it's a lot of work for a small amount of points, but I would consider it to someone who already owned DVC. Maybe buy at another resort, even if it costs a bit more, if you plan to regularly stay elsewhere?

    I doubt you'll have much luck at that price. Paying for a timeshare rental using PayPal is against their rules so I'm not sure that offers much protection. You should likely either go retail or through a broker based on your concerns. The 7 month window has some challenges but it's still workable for many situation. More difficult for some resorts and some times of the year and certainly for studios.

    DVC resorts are easy rentals. Most private owners receive all funds up front. I would not consider that a perk.

    Maybe a newbie owner goes $14.50, but no one else would.

    For so few points, why are you so concerned about the price?

    Unless owners have distressed points I’m not seeing it renting that low. In that case the points are no good 11 months out.
