    Howdy! I recently had a family member come into hard times and is needing to transfer 2 Silverleaf Hill Country fixed weeks. Reading all of the fun that SL owners have gone through since the OL acquisition gives me pause. My only potential interest would be in depositing those weeks with an exchange service and planning vacations elsewhere. Is there a way to determine the deposit values ahead of time without being members of each ES's? Thanks!

    Your intentions may be noble, but I cannot in good conscience encourage you take over the ownership of those weeks at all --- but that wasn't your question...

    The answer depends upon the exchange company (or companies, plural) with which this resort is affiliated; I claim no knowledge of that detail. Affiliated with RCI? II? Both?

    If it's RCI affiliated, some RCI member here can look up the TPU numerical trade value for you if you identify the specific resort, week number, unit number / size. If it's affiliated with Interval International, the trade value is not expressed quantitatively, since II utilizes a "like for like" approach to exchange valuation that does not reveal perceived exchange value and which expresses no "hard numbers".

    I would proceed with care and caution. If you become the new owner, you will thereby immediately (and permanently) assume responsibility for all future maintenance fees. In view of your stated objective only to exchange, this could be a huge mistake if the trade value is actually too low to ever get you anywhere you actually want to go, in a suitable unit size, or when you actually want to go there.

    Does your family member have any previous "trade" history with these weeks that might provide you with some insight into the quality of their exchanges with these weeks? :shrug:
