So I have BlueGreen. I'm looking to rent a week or two, just to offset Maintenance Fees. I've done some research on what condos are going for, but I'm wondering how much the prices change with time? If I have a summer spot on the beach reserved and I want to rent it out, should I list it now, or will it command a higher price if I wait a bit until things are sold out? I protected the points, so at worst, I'm out my $40 if it doesn't rent.

Also besides here at TUG, where do you suggest I list the rental. I've read the guide on how to rent, but I am looking for more personal experiences... where have the rest of you had luck or not, and why?

Finally, do people really want full weeks, or are partial weeks often rented?

Thanks!
Edie

It is never too early to advertise - I have rented timeshares more than a year before check-in. The earlier you advertise, the more people will see your Ad.

In addition to TUG, I use Redweek and Craigslist.

I also use Redweek to check the Comps for competitive pricing.

I think there is a lot more demand for 7 night stays, starting on Saturday, unless you are renting for a special event, or someplace that might be a popular weekend getaway.

At the beach resorts near major metropolitan areas where there are lots of folks within a 3-4 hour drive, my logic tells me that there is demand for weekends or mid week stays too

Folks tied to a work schedule will prefer the weekends, and old farts like me that dont work will prefer the cheaper mid week stuff

I think you can get more for a split week done like this than a full week
