Phoenix in late October

We have an exchange in Sedona for the second week of October of this year and have an ongoing search for the following week in Phoenix - specifically a Saturday check-in at the top resorts. It has been in for 2 months. How long should I wait till I expand the resorts to include some of the resorts that are rated lower in the Tug reviews?

Are you trading using RCI or II? We've had two or three trades that time of year to the Westin in Scottsdale. Also, I used to see quite frequently (haven't checked for some time) availability for the Westin in October. If you are trading with II and have a decent trader, I'd wait. I think your chances are good at getting the resorts you want.
