    All,

    There was a quirky ad on eBay for a Week 44 2BR at WSJ. It had several oddities in it's ad, but I do like early November in the VI and thought about buying it. I consulted with a TUGger and appreciated the advice, and ultimately decided to pass.

    It sold for $1 with one bid and was listed by an unknown seller. I was curious if a TUGger got it?

    Separately, I was curious what the more knowledgeable TUGgers thought about buying a fixed week 44 in VGV in a 2BR? I would use this as a base for a 2 week trip, one week on StJ followed by a second week on STT, so it would be a personal use, and not a SO play.

    Thank you!

    Best,

    Greg

    GregT, if you are going to use it for yourself and the MFs are reasonable when compared to renting, and you can buy it for a reasonable price, then I would say go for it. It would have the advantage of StarOptions, so if in a year you decided against use, you could bank, or use elsewhere. Worthy of also noting that the 2 bed townhouse, has lower MFs than the non 2 level unit.
