I have one week 52 2 bedroom 2 bathroom gold crown Orlando resort I was considering renting in 2016.

What would be a good rent price and what are the odds of renting this?

I know the odds are generally low.

Just looking at thoughts and opinions.

Look at any of the timeshare rental websites and you will see a lot of Florida rentals - at low prices. Florida is over-built with timeshares, and that depresses the market - even for popular weeks.

"Opinions" don't matter when it comes to pricing a timeshare rental. You need to look at what others are actually renting their timeshare for. I think www.redweek.com is a good place to get the "Comps."

Take a good look at what timeshares at your resort have actually rented for in 2015 - that will tell you what the public is willing to pay. Be sure you look at the same resort/unit type/dates.

A few in S and VA, a single resort in NC, MD, PA, and UT, plus Jamaica and the Bahamas
I think the odds of renting out a 2 br Orlando is excellent for 1st tier resorts like DVC. Very Good for second tier resorts like Bonnet Creek, Marriott and Sheratons. It's not bad for 3rd tier resorts but the prices are much lower. I generally get $750-$800 for a 2 br at Summer Bay. If I want to rent early and not stress about having it go unused. If you are looking at Davenport I think the prices are going to be a little lower.

I'm a longtime owner of a top tier (non-DVC) Orlando TS, and this year for the first time I needed to rent out rather than use. Shockingly, my wk 52 rented rather easily for nearly 2x maintenance! The only negative for me was that I had it listed since early in the year, and didn't begin to see interest until early this month. If you decide to list your week, take a look at Redweek to determine your price. Keep in mind that the listed prices are not necessarily the actual rental prices as there is sometimes room for negotiation.

*Rather than looking at the "list" price - look at the ones that have actually rented.

probably the best odds for week 52 out of all of them, for max money in Orlando.

They are sold out everywhere , people are looking.

Clarification - this is about 2016.

A good market for week 52 this year (at this time) in Orlando.
Better than any other time in my opinion in Orlando I have found.
2016 week #52 should be as good, I will bank on that !

In the rental wanted section , no one is jumping all over people looking. Thats a good sign !
Plans will fall thru and people will get lucky, but I would rather have my vacation secured.

tricky part will be what days everybody will want to reserve, Jan 1st 2016 is a Sunday

Years ago when Marriott had decent resale and rental programs I listed my Sabal Palms (Orlando) week for sale with them. While I was waiting for it to move up their queue three years in a row I chose Week 52 and had them rent it for me. All three years all 7 days rented and even after Marriott's (then it was 20%) commission I netted well in excess of my MF.

While I don't have direct experience with Orlando, I have found that week 52 in sunny & warm beach climates can generate a lot of interest (as well as a great rental value) just a month or two before check-in, if you have the stomach for it. However, I'm willing to give up some rental income just to rent it out earlier and move on.

Just keep in mind the last drop-dead date to deposit for exchange, whatever that may be for your exchange company(ies)--just in case.
