    I'm a bit frustrated with the low inventory on RCI lately. Either there is no availability where i am looking or the resorts are on the lower end.

    Question- how effective are RCI's Ongoing searches in delivering good quality results?

    It depends on how flexible you are and how far in advance, and where you're looking at.

    I've had mixed results. But if you put a request in at least a year in advance, you should be able to snag something, but again, if you're looking at a high demand area for say, Christmas week, then you may need 2 years in advance and even then, I'm not sure.

    I have always had success with II matching with higher quality resorts with an ogs. If your resort is a member of II you might consider joining them.

    With RCI I have had limited success with ogs for higher quality resorts but they do occur.

    I am also frustrated with the low inventory with RCI. I am a weeks owner and have 53 in trading power and am looking for Cape Cod or Myrtle Beach for summer 2019 and the available resort choices are sparse.

    Did you put in an ongoing search? I think that is the only chance you have in getting what you want.

    Be patient. Myrtle in particular is not going to be hard.
