Most people who rent the TS have said over the years that they generally don't get renters till between 4-6 months before travel. So it shouldn't be a surprise that you didn't get any offers till now.

Glad your week rented on Redweek. We have had similar results with redweek and my resort network.

Renters seem to all of a sudden come our of the blue.

We have rented weeks at the Resort on Cocoa Beach about 2 months prior to the start date via Red Week.

Holiday Rentals

We have two Christmas week rentals (one ski & one beach), and one New Years week (ski) rental. We just started getting nibbles in Sept, with a few more "real" contacts just this week. Last year the Caribbean week didn't rent until about 5-6 weeks out. The Caribbean week may be difficult this year with the $$$ flights. We rent at about 60-70% of the resort's rental rates, and about 1.5x - 2x the maintenance fees.

I placed a rental ad on Redweek on September 11th for a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit for President's week 2009 in southeast Florida. I received an inquiry within 8 hours, and 2 more within the next two days. I rented it quickly to the first couple who contacted me :cheer:

Meanwhile I placed the same ad on the same date at the new TUG Marketplace. The only response I received was a Nigerian scheme pitch :bawl:

I too got rentals immediately for two Week 7 SE FL weeks after placing both a TUG ad and a Redweek ad (one from each site). A couple of others rented after a 2-3 weeks. Places were priced very reasonable.

Then this stock market meltdown - inquiries just ceased.

I know that on multiple holidays, I have gotten emails just 4-5 days before a holiday. The internet with it's ability to get what you want NOW rewards the "I don't know what I am doing next week" vacationers. So be it. One must adapt, so I book my airfare at refundable rates.:D
