PM or email me if interested

Free Deeded Timeshare - first fees and usage (points) 2013

Free Closing through JRA closing (recommended by TUG), you pay only for your RCI Points account set up (about $124 if you are a member $224 if not).

I would expect a $100 deposit to be held by JRA and refunded after close.

This is for a 1-53 Platinum at Fox Hills Resort in Mishicot WI already converted to 53,400 annual RCI Points (a $3500 value) -- ANNUAL MAINTENANCE FEES = $488. less than a penny per point.

This is the best Fox Hills ownership available.

Fox Hills Resort is a premier vacation spot for the upper mid west with wonderful family atmosphere and great golf.

Fox Hills Resort is your perfect week long or weekend destination with indoor swimming pool, Fitness Center, The Oasis Spa, The 19th Hole Bar & Grill, The Willowview Restaurant and Benchwarmers Sports Bar which features daily food and drink specials and live weekend entertainment.

Fox Hills is also centrally located to skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, Door County wine tours, museums, and so much more for your Door County / Mishicot vacation.

"very low MF" ??

Maybe my math is wrong, but that equates to $9.22 fo 1k points each year. How is this low MFs? Most everything I've read and seen lately would indicate that we can find Wyndham and/or RCI points in the $5.00/1k range.

Maybe this is a prestigious resort that everyone wants to get into, thus justifying the high MFs? Or am I missing something here? I'm not trying to be rude, but just asking.

You want Wyndham points under $5.00 per K - RCI Points you want under $.01 per point or $10 per K.

This is because RCI Points have more purchasing power - 60K to 80k will get you a nice 2 bedroom in prime season while Wyndham points will take 120k to 175k to get the same unit.

Thanks! That's the answer I was looking for. I'm new to the points programs, and I thought the two points systems were equal.

Ok, I was to be the buyer of this timeshare. I received an email from the seller saying that they were waiting for the closing company to set things up. I figured it was a done deal. Then the next day I get an email saying they have decided to back out and take this off the "market". I understand people change their mind but still I think this was kind of a shady thing to do.

Sorry, just had to air my frustration and warn others if this situation would come up again. Guess I should have asked for signed papers right away. Thought those things only happened from PCC's on ebay. :(

Come on! It seems kind of childish to complain that you are not going to get something for free after all. Anyone is entitled to change their minds. I can understand it being disappointing, but to whine about it and compare Rick to a PPC company is ridiculous. Rick has given away a number of timeshares for free on this board and it is sad to see him disparaged just because he changed his mind.
