    Live 12 months in TS? Help! How do we best do this?

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts, brainstorming, and help. My wife and I are thinking about selling our home of 22 years, and relocating in Arizona in 2022 or 2023. But before we purchase in AZ and settle in, we would like to travel. And we are strongly considering living in a...

    Villa Group said they will buy our old timeshare

    We just purchased a time share from the Villa Group at Villa del Arco in Cabo San Lucas 4 days ago. They gave us $15,500 off the purchase price for our old time share in Aruba. We have 30 days to get the paperwork to them and they will transfer ownership. Now I'm getting nervous that they may...

    Buying Multiple 6k WM vs Buying One 12k or 18k WM

    I Have decided that I want to buy into WorldMark. I'd like to get annual points somewhere from 12k to 18k based on my plans for the next few years. Right now I am evaluating 3 general options. 1) Get in small with a 6k WM and rent any points needed beyond that. 2) Get multiple 6k-8k contracts...

    Looking to upgrade points--How to choose from the Marketplace?!

    We purchased our Wyndham timeshare points 3/2015 in Vegas and haven't ever booked the "home resort". We have, however, used points for Wyndham, Worldmark, and RCI properties all over the US. If we don't care about a home resort, how do we choose between all the great ads on the marketplace?
