I'm overwhemled. We have a large family and do believe that a timeshare is the way to go. I have heard really solid things from Marriott timeshare owners that it's the company to buy with. So far very positive. The points system seems to make sense & we did get the sales schpeel in Orlando last week. We are looking at buying a 3 bedroom at the Lakeshore property (orlando) that is not built yet- very beautiful-next to Ritz/JW. I'm told that by buying a 3 bedroom, our bargaining power to trade will be easier. We have 3 young kids and it would be nice to have the option of 2 bedroom and banking the rest and/or a large 3 bedroom. 3 bedroom is @ $34K and 2 bedroom with lock-off is $28.4 for platinum time. So here is my question. Are we nuts to do it? I see so many bargains, and yet hear so many nightmare stories. Is this a bad value? We do plan on traveling to other places, and I'm concerned that with a larger family I need as much bargaining power to add to the fact that we will need high season trades. I'm told that 3 bedroom is only in 3% of Interval and that Interval is always anxious for 3 bedroom trades. I don't really understand how to navigate this issue. Thoughts??? I'm very open. Thanks!
