Maui Ocean Club seller asking 13.5k for a 2bd 3ba annual OV my concern is nothing is booked for 2012 thus I will end paying the MF and not get anything for the additional cost...input would be appreciated on value of this unit
$13.5K is at the high-end of what you should pay for that type of unit. There have been only two 2BR Ocean View units listed on eBay this year, but if you are patient you should be able to get a better deal than $13.5K. Or use these two eBay listings as leverage to negotiate down the price with this seller.Maui Ocean Club seller asking 13.5k for a 2bd 3ba annual OV my concern is nothing is booked for 2012 thus I will end paying the MF and not get anything for the additional cost...input would be appreciated on value of this unit
That makes the deal more appealing. However, I still think that $13.5K is a bit high. Suggest you use those two eBay listings to negotiate a lower price with this seller.Seller has just come back and stated he will pay the 2012 MF and use it thus the price would be 13.5K with no MF for 2012 and use begins 2013 which is fine with us because we are already booked in MOC for Feb 2012

$13K with usage starting in 2013 is a good deal. Is the seller reputable?Have used the Ebay sales for comps perhaps can get it down to 13k but pretty sure that will be the bottom...

Also, try to choose your own closing company if possible (instead of just going along with whatever the seller chooses). Even if you have an honest seller, a bad closing company can make the experience seem like hell. There are a number of highly-rated timeshare closing companies that are recommended here on TUG.
I am looking at this same purchase. If the seller makes a reservation, wouldn't that reservation follow the sale? How, could I, as the buyer, be entitled to that week if thats what agreed between the buyer and seller?
$13500 is a good price from what I've seen in the limited sales that have been documented.
If you are hoping to go in early 2013 you might want to see if you can get the seller to reserve a week for you when the 12 month window opens for when you want to go. Surely you will be able to make your own reservation for 2013, but it may be too late if you are looking for a winter week.
Just mentioning it because you're going this Feb., so didn't know if that's when you like to go.
It drives me crazy that sellers aren't smart enough to secure a good rental/use week before they list it for sale. It definitely gets them a hogher resale price and it more valauble to the buyer, especially when you're talking a MOC.
I wouldn't be interested in this week because I always want a good winter week and I know it will be hard to get one without having control of the week.
This is the problem with alot of resales. The only reason I bought my 2BDRM OF off ebay was the seller reserved March 3rd, which is a good rental week. I put that up on Redweek and rented it easily for $3200. I wouldn't have purchased without that week included.
If you can use any week then its a moot point but if not it just makes it a little less valuable of a purchase for me.
Marriott waived the ROFR on this purchase of a MOC (Maui) 2bd 3ba OV annual with use and MF not starting until: 2013 for 13K....
This is surprising because Marriott doesn't have much inventory in the DC of MOC so you would think they would jump on this. Very good price for an excellent property, from what I can remember. I'll let you know in 23 days if it still as nice as I remember .
