That's a good resale price. I got mine cheaper (but was willing to pay up to $8k), many paid more, most owners are starting out selling by asking in the $19k range.

This resort always gets a high-quality bonus week (or two) when you deposit, and it will trade for anything in the Interval system.

Downside is that annual fees are about $700.

So do you think that price will pass ROFR? I guess it will if yours was less. Great deal, seems like!

Is it true that it's not deeded for life?

I placed a bid but the auction went higher than my maximum. The maintenance fees are pretty high which is why I was conservative with my bid.

I've heard that it trades very well with II but the Mant Fees are high foe a one bed room.

It is not deeded for life because it is a historic building.

Some people on this BBS get ticked at people for pointing out open auctions. They think it is "Running Up the Bid".

Brian, You can create an ongoing search on eBay for Marriott timeshare listings to whatever level of specificity you desire, e.g., all timeshare listings with "Marriott" or "[specific resorts]" in title or title plus description. When new listings appear eBay will notify you via email.

Amy,

Can you break-down the steps to create an on-going search on Ebay. Thx.

You must have an eBay account to do this in the first place so if you do not, create one.
  1. Make sure you are logged in.
  2. Click on "Advanced Search" from any page -- it is a small link next to the Search box.
  3. On the "Advanced Search" page enter your search in the "Enter key word or item number" search box. (This page explains how particular search commands work, e.g., if you use quotes you will search for words in that exact order.)
  4. In the "In this category" box select "Real Estate" if you are interested in timeshare sales (because all timeshare sales are listed or supposed to be listed under that category).
  5. Check the option under the search box that says "search title and description" if you want to make sure you cover ads where the owner only put something like "Fabulous Maui Five Star Timeshare" for a Marriott Maui listing.
  6. Click on the "Search" button to start the search.
  7. On the search results page look toward the right side of the page above the list of results for a clickable link called "Add to Favorite Searches." This will bring you to the Add to My Favorite Searches options page.
  8. Under "Save Options" check "Create a new search".
  9. In the "Search Name" box give it whatever name you want
  10. Make sure the "Email me daily . . . " option on the bottom is checked, and set the duration of this ongoing search and email -- from 7 days minimum to 12 months maximum.
  11. Click on the "Save Search" botton.
Then you're done! I have lots of saved searches, especially for out-of-print books.
