Is this an OK Harborside price?

Around $10,000 for a week 48 EOY larger one bedroom in phase 1. I have a friend looking at this and wonder if anyone has any thoughts--haven't really kept up with resale prices. Thanks!

Here is a recent phase II, ANNUAL, silver season (weeks 35-46) floater at Harborside that, based on the listed square footage at least, appears to be a large one bedroom (worth 44,000 StarOptions) that just sold on ebay for $250.

Check out the posted annual maintenance fee ($1205.65) and closing costs ($2,700). Ouch!

Even if your friend can come to terms with spending 4000% more on a fixed week 48 EOY (worth 51,700 StarOptions EOY) in Phase I vs. an ANNUAL floating week that must be used at least a couple of weeks earlier each year, he/she should also fully investigate and understand the costs/fees associated with transferring ownership of a timeshare in the Bahamas.

Also, I just did a quick check, and week 48 appears to start on the weekend AFTER Thanksgiving each year. I would think that the more desirable "holiday week" would be week 47, which starts the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Good Luck,

I think their interest level is because they own the week after and this would give them the flexibility to go back to back for two weeks EOY--but I appreciate the info and will pass it on.
WOW $250 for a week!

Nope, way too high. I had a EY two bedroom, gold season for $18,000 at HRA, but we decided to get a three bedroom instead.
