Do you mean a fixed week? Yes, buying a fixed week and trying to exchange for another week will be difficult. Owners usually use their weeks or rent them for big bucks, so there are few units for exchange.Or is a floating TS almost as difficult to exchange as a fixed?
No - there are no guarantees with a floating week. The only guarantee is that you have the option to reserve at 12 mos.I'm thinking about purchasing a gold season week that the sellers have described as a floating week. Basically, I'm wondering if A) I call up one year in advance, am I guaranteed that week,
Yes - you have a very good chance as long as you call at 12 mos. out at 8:59 ET. The week on your deed means nothing with a floating week - it's just for recording purposes. You don't have any kind of a reservation until you call and make one.B) do I have a realistic opportunity to choose a different week in gold season again if I call Starwood one year in advance. New to the Starwood TS system, etc...
We own week 24 on the Hillside - treat it like a fixed week - do not expect an exchange. While technically it can float - it is not easy, and it is a hassle.Ahh, so even though the deed will say week 20 Float, its not guaranteed until I call up Starwood to reserve at the 1 year out mark to reserve it. In addition, there is a chance that another Gold Season "floater" could call 5 min. before me and reserve that week (20). In which case I would have to select another week?:
