    Passed Hyatt ROFR on 2 Purchases

    I just completed two resale purchases where Hyatt waived their Right of First Refusal. Is there a database where I can update the sale information? The only one I see is @Kal but it’s a PDF document on his website. I originally signed a contract for 1,500 annual portfolio points at $30,000...

    No Refund After Bluegree ROFR From Online Seller

    Back in March, I won an ebay bid for a 20k points bluegreen TS. After winning the bid, I started working with "A Family On Vacation" to purchase the TS and transfer the deed. After a more than 5 months of waiting, bluegreens decided to exercise ROFR. Since at this point my purchase contract was...

    How do I avoid getting ROFRed buying resale at SDO?

    I want to pick up another couple 2BRs at SDO. I like the resort and I've generally had success renting the units I don't use. It's been several years since I bought any resales at SDO. I've heard the Vistana/Mariott is much more aggressive about exercising ROFR now after the merger. Does anyone...

    eBay resale points question

    Hello! A little over a year ago, we purchased the smallest Bluegreen (BG) points package with charter benefits and now decided to look to add points on the second-hand market. Yesterday we won an auction on eBay for less than 11 dollars for around 7,000 additional BG points and were surprised...

    WKV Pricing

    After months of refusing to check EBay and Redweek, I looked on Friday to find several WKVs for sale. Several one bedrooms at super low prices. Is ROFR still in effect? And do you believe printing for 2bdrm WKV will go below $13k?

    Sample Notice of ROFR?

    Would anyone please be so kind to share a sample notice of ROFR to the seller (e.g., Hilton, Marriott, etc.)? What should be included in the notice, besides the price of resale? Thanks so much.

    Hyatt and ROFR

    Hello, I just purchased a Hyatt Ka'anapali timeshare and am still within the cancelation period.

    I'm in the process of buying a 1 bedroom premium...platinum float at WKV. From what I have read here there is no ROFR. However I received an email from the Escrow agent advising me she is sending Vistana the ROFR documents. She assures me this is the case. Can anyone confirm if WKV has a ROFR...

    Westgate Right of First Refusal--have they ever exercised this right?

    I want out of my Westgate Smoky Mountain property. We own a 2 BR every odd year. They have ROFR if I get a buyer. My question: Does anyone know if they ever actually buy it back this way? I'm sure they wouldn't if I had a buyer for $2K, but what if I got a buyer for $50 (and buyer pays the...

    What do you consider "sales price" for ROFR & Comparison Purposes?

    I am not really sure what people include in reporting "sales price" for ROFR purposes or for doing $ per point comparisons. I have an ROFR offer in for somewhere between $809 or $3,653.41 depending on how one considers it. It is for a 1BR+ platinum (6,200 EOY odd year points) at Anderson Ocean...

    Does Grand Lodge on Peak 7 exercise their ROFR?

    Does anyone have feedback on whether they exercise their ROFR and how aggressively. I have been trying to sell my spring/Fall week in the smallest unit for 2 years now and finally lowered the price to $499 just to dump it. Now I've heard they aggressively exercise the ROFR. Very frustrating that...

    Can I give my HGVC to a friend or will it get stuck by ROFR?

    I own two weeks with HGVC. I no longer want my unit and would like to give it to my friend (non-relative). If its a gift will it get through ROFR? I would like the paperwork to reflect what we are really doing and prefer not to say I'm selling it for $x just to get through ROFR. Thanks in...

    Hi Guys! I'm debating purchasing a timeshare on ebay for the HGVC. I've been researching this forums for days (great info!!) but can't seem to find the answer to this question. When people state the 7000 point timeshares go for ~$1/point does that mean for everything including the closing costs...
