According to the listing, this was an Oceanside unit. This week is worth 4500 DC Points, so based on GregT's ROFR metric and his $10/pt calculation (explained in this post ), $6000 represents a 13% ratio which is well below the 23% ROFR threshold. Based on that I would think there is a high probability that Marriott will take this from the Buyer via ROFR.

It will likely end up a very good deal for MVC as this is likely to get plucked for the Trust via ROFR.

Grande Ocean Platinum, 3 x Grand Chateau 3 Bedroom (annual, EOY Odd, EOY Even).,
I was thinking of bidding on this last night but decided against it because of the belief it would not pass. I sent the seller an email letting him/her know my reluctance to bid and asked if they would mind me following up in 30 days to know it Marriott took it. Just got back

Dear l0410z,

Sure; feel free to check back with us.
Thanks,

Too many red flags here, seller has only been eBay member since 2015, most of the early feedback is for them as a buyer (padding their rating), and full payment due at end of auction. The last one isn't necessarily a terrible thing, but I would only send to a reputable closing company given the limited eBay history. Even some of the feedback they do have the buyers say they are waiting for closing. Idiots. Sometimes things are too good to be true. Probably explains why the price was low, others saw the red flags too.
