    Hi

    I am considering purchasing a 3 bedroom lock off resale in Marriott anduluza I have heard from a few UK brokers that 3 beds are harder to exchange on interval? Is there any truth to this? I have a family of 2 adults and 4 children so a 3 bedroom would suit us!

    Thanks

    Tanya

    I would say that a 3 br is harder to exchange for a comparable size because there are fewer 3 br units out there. Many of them are lock-offs and may be deposited separately. That's what we do with our 3 br Mystic Dunes unit. We split it and deposit it as a 2 br and 1 br.

    You would be able to exchange for many smaller units, of course, and that might work for you if the children are not teenagers yet. We have four kids and stayed happily in a lot of two bedroom units through the years. We have also traded up from 2 br deposits to 3 br units, but II charges you an upgrade fee for that. RCI does not.

    With owning a lockoff, you can make 2 deposits ... the studio side and the 2bdr room side.

    As for securing a 3 bdr exchange ...there are few 3bdr units in the timeshare universe. II is not a points-style exchange company .. it is a "like-for-like". And many owners of 3 bdr lockoffs split the week into to TWO deposits to get 2 weeks of vacationing.

    Hey thanks for that. The Marriott playa anduluza 3 bed split is more like a 2 bedroom and a studio would this still be the same kind of trading power as you have mentioned?

    Hi

    Are they also more difficult to sell on?
