    I am very interested in purchasing a Marriott resale. I already own DVC and WYNDHAM CWA, so I’m not new to timeshares. But, Marriott’s system has me perplexed!

    First, are there any restrictions on resale owners?

    We are interested primarily, right now, in traveling to Ko’Olina, so we’re torn between a deeded week at that resort or buying points. If we buy a deeded week, is there a internal trading system or is it always through II? If we buy points, can they be used at the Marriott Pulse locations too? I know the execute ROFR in weeks frequently, and I saw the pinned post about reported ROFR prices, do they execute ROFR on points? If yes at about what price? I know there’s a $3 per point enrollment fee for resale points, is that the “transfer fee” noted in all of the eBay listings I’ve seen?

    Sorry if these are rudimentary questions, I promise I did read back several pages and do some searching but I can’t quite grasp the system yet!

    Marriott is complicated; the weeks vs. points thing make it such. You are correctly getting the big picture on the Marriott system, although the devil is in the details.

    If you are thinking about Ko Olina "primarily", consider a resale week rather than points. Much cheaper. And if you want flexibility, consider an eoy Ko Olina and then rent weeks for your non-Ko Olina trips.

    No internal trading system for weeks (other than Florida club which your KoOlina purchase would not be in). Any trades would have to be via II.

    Points purchased resale can be used to book anything in the MVC collection, including Pulse properties.

    Yes, they do exercise ROFR on points, but their doing so seems a bit random. My guess is something in the higher $3 a point is likely the tipping point, with outliers on either side.

    Just a thought. If you’re looking resales, you might want to call MVC resales and ask about a “bundle” package. I’ve seen resale offers in the range of $7/pointe and direct from MVC bundles in the $8/point range. A bundle gives you a resale/enrolled deeded week plus trust points and there’s none of the hassle of enrollment junk fees if you want your resale week in their points program

    The idea of a hybid is super attractive!

    So I could possibly buy an EOY Ko Olina and some points as a bundle but directly from Marriott's resale department? How does one get in contact with their resale department?

    Try (801) 828-1460; but read a bit more about hybrids on here. CSalter, Dean and others have done some killer deals, but using Aruba and points as the hybrid.

    Be aware that under this program you are talking a HUGE outlay of cash.....

    Also keep in mind that the closing costs on an EOY unit run the same as the closing costs for an annual use unit.

    In light of the above, you may be better off just buying a resale annual week, and using Interval International for trading....

    While I agree with this in principle, it depends on how many points a person decides is necessary to be effective in the destination club. If you need 4,000 points to get the vacations you desire, then it’s nearly a wash with a bundle/hybrid as to costs. IMHO, anything less then 3,000 points would be difficult to get anything really good in season. Even with the 4,600 points we get for our Grand Chateau unit it requires some manipulation to go where/when we want in the view category we want. Then again we enjoy the best or better views while there are those who don’t care about the view. Sort of like some are happy with an inside stateroom vs ocean view stateroom on a cruise ship. The less particular you are the fewer points you need.

    Supposedly the hybrids are going away when they merge the other programs in. The thought being that it won’t be fair to the others where there limited to buying only points. I doubt this will be the case.

    So long as MVC can make a buck, they’ll sell whatever they can sell.

    Why couldn't the others buy a hybrid package also?

    I didn’t see why they couldn’t. It was the salesman saying that it wouldn’t be “fair”.

    I think he was trying to say the other weeks would be conveyed to the trust so they wouldn’t be able to buy regular weeks like before.

    I was pretty much just agreeing with the SP at this point.
