FYI we are at Princeville today, and one of the people we met poolside said that at their owners update that SVO was willing to take in their Lagunamar for Nanea.

Others have posted here that they will take in certain locations.

With a sales team still selling in Cancun it would not surprise me they will take it. After all they also need to bring a big pot of fresh cash to the table also.

They offered to take any of my SVO VOIs - except my OFD WKORV. Why? Because SVO has set a (paper) price of $125K.

Of course they will take WLR to sell Nanea - profit on top of more profit.

They were only going to offer us 100% of what we paid for each of our WKORV EOYs, not what the VOIs are worth. It would have been cool if they had offered us what they are currently selling them for.

Was at WKORV and Desert Willow updates in January, and they refused to take Lagunamar back.

This really isn't new? They have offered to take in my SVR fixed summer week. When I said no then they offered to retro. I said no to that as I want to see how VSE shakes out. Priority # 1 is to bring in a LARGE pot of fresh cash. There is no priority # 2.

There is a priority #2.
To stuff the repurchased assets (I use the word assets loosely here) into the Starwood Sheraton Flex trust for more Home Option bookings or to resell the primo week's at huge markups again.

That's why HRA would not be bought back but WSJ or WLR (active sales) or WKOR but maybe not the other Westin etc.

Sounds just like a variation of priority # 1. I wonder what a new system will look like once this gravy train of the Flex program ends and there is slim inventory, just like we are seeing now with the death of the traditional week VOI?? :hysterical:
