Is there a better way of getting at lower MF’s than what I am seeing?
A peak-season 1BR costs 166K points. An "average" $/K deed might be about $6.50/K, give or take, including the program fee. So, it's going to run right around that for most people. You can find deeds less than that---my average is a good-but-not-outstanding $5.60. There are plenty that are more, too.

Even at an average ratio, that's an ongoing cost of about $150/night, which is a pretty good deal for a 1BR with that quality/location.

If I am reading correctly, a one bedroom Bonnet Creek resale for $1,500 on RedWeek is showing a MF of $1,053. Is there a better way of getting at lower MF’s than what I am seeing?

Thx.
I was doing Grand Desert maintenance fees using the Bonnet Creek value season for a 2 bedroom (112,000 points at $5.61 per thousand). You almost never actually need Bonnet Creek ARP. The only rooms at Bonnet Creek I don't have access to easily year round are 3 and 4 bedroom presidential units.

They have 2 queens and bunks? I didn’t realize only 2 bathrooms..... do they get booked quickly? Also, 2 queens and bunks is more than enough space for me lol
Love them or hate them - Just spent a few days there. DW could not wait to leave as she got VERY little sleep. The Q beds in both br's squeaked LOUDLY with every slight change of position. Real pain to get anywhere in a hurry from the treehouses unless you have a car. When the boats start running again it will help. Otherwise, utilize the bell staff to pick up and return to unit.

Getting back to the original question on this tread, although I does not appear they are still around. As others have pointed out prices are indeed not down due to pandemic and the market is extremely active. With the prices up as much as they are I decided to list a couple of my contracts for sale and had acceptable offers in just a few days. On my 300 point Aulani contract, the first buyer backed out when he found out he would not get the points until the contract closed and apparently thought he would get them before that (have no idea why he would think that). However, within 3 days I received a new offer for $4 more per point than the original offer. So worked out in my favor

Prices are certainly up at akv and limited supply.
