Keep bidding. Vistana may give up eventually :)

Does anyone know if they're currently/have ever exercised ROFR on Flex points? The resale info sheet says it's an option but I've been unable to find info on if it's being used. Thanks in advance!
Just passed ROFR on a 81000 flex options. I think it said it was for $10.

Is Westin exercising ROFR on its Princeville property? If so, does anyone have data on the 2 bedroom oceanfront for weeks 1-50 and week 51?

Yes - VSE is using ROFR for their HI resorts. Week 51 likely not represented well.
There is no OF designation at WPORV (Princeville) - do you mean WPORV or Maui (WKORV/N)?

WPORV has been reported - I would guesstimate around $6K for wk1-50
(they were sold at ~$48K to ~$56K)

Ask Tugger @Syed (by Private Message/Coversation) for estimate.

Starwood sold all deeds at "resort view" at Westin Princeville, so to get a guaranteed ocean front view, you would have to find an owner that paid (20%?) to "fix the unit," so that they got the same unit/date every time. They will be rare and hard to find.

Yes that is correct. I found one at Westin Princeville but they exercised ROFR on it. We knew they would so the owner had it priced very low. I felt like we were buying a lottery ticket anyway. I never expected to get it.

Passed ROFR for WKOVR-North EOY Odd Oceanfront 2 BR LO for $12,500 including 2019 MFs. It is a mandatory resort that can trade internally in the Vistana network and comes with 176K StarOptions that can be banked and borrowed. Closed in Fenruary 2018 and my Vistana account was set up 30 days later.

I see that Syed has two listings for OFD at $30K. If I were interested, I would offer $28K. Then if it didn't pass ROFR, I would try again with a higher offer? However, as you mentioned before, Syed would be able to give you a good idea of what would probably pass ROFR. I think that other owners of OFDs can you a good guesstimate also. CJ

Prices have dropped by about $5-7K on both OFD and OFC units over the past year, suggesting that ROFR is not being exercised, or at least not being exercised consistently.

I think mauitraveler's numbers are about right, but Syed is definitely the go-to guy.

(Why anyone would buy Nanea from the developer rather than these units at these prices completely baffles me)

Because most people don't know about the resale market or don't trust it's legit because the prices are so much cheaper than what they are sold by the developers.
