Excuse my ignorance but where do you recommend finding "good deals". on HGVC Points? On the sales pages on Tug? On eBay? any particular broker? Thanks.

Check TUG marketplace, and look at listings by these reputable brokers who specialize in HGVC:
Seth Nock - www.sellingtimeshares.net
Judi Kozlowski - www.judikoz.com
They are recommended in this forum most often.

E-Bay is another source, but you need to be careful... its something of a wild frontier.
Look at closed auctions to see who has HGVC experience and what the TS went for.

You can also check Redweek, but some of those sellers do not understand resale values.

For advice on buying TS's generally, see the sticky notes in the "Buying, Selling, Renting" forum.

Thx for everybody's input. I've decided to put a deposit down on a property at the LV Boulevard. 4800 annual platinum points, $736 MF's. asking price is $4000 with seller covering closing cost. Hopefully this is good deal, definitely not a steal like I've read on some of the threads. What do y'all think?? Honest opinions appreciate.

It's a very reasonable deal, especially considering the seller is covering the closing costs and it is at LV Blvd, which has some of the lowest MFs. I am also waiting to hear back as to whether Hilton waives ROFR for a recent purchase. Crossing fingers for the both of us!
