Stayed a week at NCV in January and loved it. Now I am thinking about purchasing there. I expect that we would mostly travel there during Gold Season (weeks 1-22) so I was going to buy a Gold Season unit in the ~$4,000 price range. Seems like annuals (1-52) go for $8-$10k on the resale market so gold season seems like a much better deal. (Us Pacific Northwesterners do most of our travel in Jan - Apr to escape the dark and rain.) MF seem to be in the $900 range for the standard 2 bedroom.

Is this a good resort to own? Does it have good trading power in interval international? Does anyone have any pros/cons they could suggest about owning here?

Thanks!

NCV doesn't have any weeks that float all week 1-52. You can only buy in the seasons and use in those seasons. What you referred to as 1-52 are probably actually platinum season. If you own platinum, you can only reserve in platinum.

Only downside that is if you consider it a downside is that the 2 bds do not have a lockoff feature. Also I is easy to exchange into this resort on II during gold season.

It is a beautiful resort. We haven't stayed there but have visited and just traded in using our 1 BR platinum at Desert Springs I. One consideration would be to buy a unit in Palm Desert in the platinum season, which is weeks 50-52 (at Desert Springs 1, I believe DS2 and Shadow Ridge don't include week 52) and 1-22 as they offer 2 BR lockoffs. Then you can use them to trade into Newport Coast during the Gold season. You can pick one up from $3500- 5000. The MF's are higher in the $1200 range but you could get two weeks out of it. You could even stay there one week and Newport Coast another (on a trade). Worth consideration.
