We are closing today on a new resale of a Desert Springs Villas I Red unit with 2017 availability. How long before we can actually reserve our week for next year? We already own at Summit Watch and have used II for years to trade. We have never reserved within the Marriott system. I would be so sad if we can't get a February week for next year.

You could have the sellers book the desired week you are looking for, assuming its available to be booked now, and then MVC will (especially when the paperwork tells them to do so) just transfer the already booked week over to you.

If you just wait, I have seen reports of it taking only about week, up to a few weeks for the ownership to appear in your account. Depends on the efficiency of your closing company as well as the backlog at MVC I assume.

I have owned there for about 10 years. I checked the availability and all of February 2017 check ins are still open. Generally I have seen in the red season the months of March and April are the ones you must book exactly 12 months out. And its generally only certain weeks in those months. However that being said I am sure you will see February book up within the next month or two, with January filing in also. Your in good shape at the moment, but I would see if you could get the previous owner do it for you now.
