53 Marriotts on E-Bay!?

It's been a while since I've been in the market, but I found a good little timeshare today with only $97 bid, no closing cost, $100 transfer & MF of $600

Obviously this was no Marriott.

But what gives? Is it just the economy?

Are the Maintenance fees skyrocketing?
Are they all soon in need of renovations and a Special Assessment?
How's their cash flow?

53 Marriotts and the Marriotts aren't doing the ROFR?

Does someone know something or have a guess why this is happening.

Assuming that there are over 4 million timeshare owners (guess) and Marriott has 250,000 owners (guess) and the economy is tanking (not a guess) and annual dues are due in the next month (not a guess), then I am guessing that is why so many people are selling.
