Can we create a thread or sticky for current Developer prices at the actively selling resorts? I would love to not have to call telesales every time I am curious about what is selling where....

Desert Willow Timeshares Now Available for Purchase?

I was told last week by a Starwood employee that some limited inventory for Desert Willow was released for sale about a month ago with the first use in 2010. I was not given specific information about pricing at Desert Willow - other than LagunaMar (Cancun) was supposed to be a "better deal."

Two bedroom lockoffs at LagunaMar were quoted as selling this January at $38,950 for Platinum floating use weeks starting in 2009. So, I guess Desert Willow is higher than that.

And, I was told that a price increase was imminent for LagunaMar. But that may have been developer BS. I have no way of really knowing. The reason I inquired is I am interested in a retro of a unit I recently purchased on the secondary market. ... eom

Thanks Denise, great post.:clap:

Does anybody know what all the abbreviations mean on the VV price chart?

For Example: Lockoff AP-AL/EP-EL-OP-OL

Great data Denise - when you say 'horse's mouth' - does this mean SVO Sales - that is the same format as files I got from JJ.

They really have all those WSJ VG units for sale? (they are selling units for 3x resale...)
What about WKORV?

Hi David - I was forwarded an email with those files attached, and my source got it from Starwood. There was no file for WKORV, so I am assuming that nothing is available right now, or maybe not enough inventory to actively market it?

Someone just pointed out to me that the WSJ info. doesn't reflect the recently updated Staroptions. If anyone gets an updated sales sheet, please email it to me.

RE: Current Developer Prices - from the horses mouth!

We just got back from Princeville Kauai and bought a new, under construction EOY plan. $1,000 more than the price on the posted pricing here of $34,900.

After returning home (having never even looked at timeshares before) I went online and looked at the competition and overall market. So many places going for pennies on the dollar, devaluing of points, even found out that while the pitch indicated all ocean views, all they were selling were parking lot views (island view). They tried to tell us we would have the premier rating among owners due to our location, but didn't mention there are several levels up you have to buy to truly get premium/Elite status - The Starwood deal is not so great afterall...

We're sending in our cancellation notice. :( Thanks for the FAQ

>>>While you are still in the rescission period, you should rescind - a completely legal way to get out of your contract & get your deposit back. Be sure you follow the directions in your sales packet EXACTLY and within the time limit stated in the instructions. Then you can do your homework and make a decision without any pressure. If you decide you want the original deal after all, it will still be available next week, next month, and probably even next year, and you can negotiate a better deal that you will be comfortable with!<<<

Smart Move! (And Welcome!) :hi:

When you get your rescission all taken care of, come back and talk timeshare with us - there are lots of great deals on the resale market with NO PRESSURE to buy!

In defense of WPORV -- I don't think they are selling "parking lot view". Kauai is spectacular and their IV is nicer than most OVs elsewhere in the world. That said, I agree that you should rescind and consider your options like resale purchase with a retro of a resale unit or even an "upgrade" somewhere.

Since WPORV has only 1 view category, it should be ok to trade in with StarOptions (unlike WKORV, where SOs get you only a guaranteed true parking lot view!). So you may consider buying elsewhere and then using your SOs to trade into WPORV when you feel the need to go

The PLV comment about WPORV is not correct - in most cases the villas float weeks 1-50 (unless peope buy fix/fix and pay a large premium), and they all have the same view-type (IV). In looking at the resort layout - I do not see any that are overloking a parking lot. All parking is at the entrance to the resort, and the building angle away form the parking.

Only 1Bd's are at WKORV.
WKORVN and WPORV are all 2Bd LOs.
When I asked a SVO salesperson why no 1Bds - they said because they do not have to...

What do they do with the Studio side when they sell the 1BR at WKORV?? Rent them?

No 1BR at WMH, Steamboat, or WDW either.... Looks like a trend. K

Doesn't WKORV have some stand-alone 1 bdms?
