Recent eBay auction sales for Westin SVO VOIs that have been successfully completed.
Please note - that even though these are successfuly completed auctions, it does not mean that the sale went through. Also, price may not reflect usage year, whether MFs are included, or closing costs. Caveat Emptor
{Note: I don't track Sheraton or Harborside eBay sales - if anyone wants to contributes these - please feel free. Please do not put ongoing or unsuccessful eBay sales here. Also, do not put sales from other venues since these do not have final offer listed - as this is for eBay sales only}

Perhaps I shouldn't have said this... but I did want to post the eBay ad to be inclusive.

In that it didn't state Westin in the Title (why my search missed it - otherwise I may have bid...) and had a 'soft' description.

It is a studio, but that sales price is for 2 weeks (thus an incredible deal - WSJ studio for $2900/week - wow!).

In my tracking of eBay - it is really telling that if a seller sets a reserve, a Buy It Now, or a high starting price - they usually go unsold (lots of examples). Also,being very clear about what you are selling - you can tell the sellers that have found TUG in that they know about M resorts - how SVN works - and the difference between SOs and SPs.

The weeks being WSJ Gold, Plat or Plat+ doesn't mean that much - it comes down to the SO worth - also not mentioned.

[Info. about unsold resale deleted - thanks for understanding. DeniseM]

I stated in the 1st post that this was only for completed (and successful) eBay ads.
I did this for a couple of reasons...
1) It opens for people to advertise their units indirectly - and that is against TUG rules, and...
2) There are alot of eBay ads (many more than listed) that I have not listed here because there were no bids or reserve wasn't meant.

This is an example of the reserve not being hit - and therefore wouldn't make this list. If an eBay auction hits its reserve - I will post Westins - if someone wants to add VV or HRA - feel free.

[Information about an unsold week deleted - DeniseM]

This one belongs to a friend of mine--buyer got cold feet and walked--I think she is going to put back on but waited till she sold her week 18.

Thanks for the update - I did state that it is possible that while this were completed/successful ads - there is no easy way to know if the transaction actually went thru - so goes to show to be careful of this data - like the WMH that had a ROFR.

I have no issue with showing unsuccessful ads - it is just that I didn't want to complie and list because there are alot of them. If someone want to - go ahead, but please be inclusive as to be complete. You can see them by searching on completed ads (at least for the last 30 days).


I would strongly prefer that this thread NOT contain "unsuccesful" auctions.

Are we going to include all the auctions where people set ridiculously high minimum bids and which never sell?

I agree - let's comply with the intent of this thread and stick to completed auctions.

I'm going to remove the ones that did not sell, because they could be perceived as Ads - thanks for understanding.

SVO reported to have exercised ROFR (12/3/07)

To be very clear, the buyer reported that SVO "apparently" exercised right of first refusal.

Given that the seller is in the business of selling timeshares (a PCC?), I wouldn't rule out the possibility that the seller lied to the buyer about the ROFR.

All of these eBay sales have potential for not correctly representing accurate sales - for reasons too numerous to list - caveat emptor

btw, that would be risky - there is a specific process for SVO has for doing this - it would be easy to find out and risky business practice {i would eat them alive if it were me...}

I agree to a point. But there is a lot of important info to be gleened from the realistic eBay auctions that don't sell - for example - a reserve price that doesn't hit gives info as to what people looking are willing pay (...and not like that idiot selling WPORV as a 3Bd for more than SVO... :doh: )

There are many out there where someone sets a price that is just too high - or ad is poorly described. As noted - 'no reserve', high start, and poorly described ad are the killer for getting as much as possible.

oh yeah - and absolutely nothing by eBayer timesharebyowner :wall:

but I am not listing

Yes, it's true that it could be verified. Just check the public records and see if Starwood was the buyer of the unit which was subject to the contract.

The buyer is unlikely to do that. I would be unlikely to do that as well since the seller would just point out that Ebay real estate sales are non-binding.

If the seller told me that, I would react the same as when (as frequently has happened) Ebay buyers tell me they can't pay right away because of a "funeral". I assume they're lying and act accordingly (i.e. I relist the item.). I haven't been proven wrong yet.

I assume we can all agree that auctions which attract no bids have no information value.

The question of whether reserve auctions generate bids which are lower than non-reserve auctions has always been a subject of heated debate in the Ebay world. Since I'm much less likely to bid on a reserve auction, I believe that they do.

I'd would agree that unsuccesful reserve auctions which attract bids might contain valuable market data. However, I think they should be in their own thread so that they aren't mixed together with the generally more useful info about auctions which appear to have actually matched a buyer and seller.
