Questions on buying a Hyatt TS

I am looking to buy a TS specifically for trading. Either into other HVC locations or thru II. Based on the forums I feel that Hyatt TS would be great traders. Here are some of my questions

* Why won't 1300 pt weeks work for II exchanges?
I have read Kal's website and have been reading posts on the forum. Based on II exchange point requirements you need 1300 points for a 2 bedroom Red week. So theoretically if all I am doing is exchanging with II why wont a 1300 point week work? Since 1300pt weeks could be at less desirable times are they somehow treated with lower preference?

* priority of Hyatt/II system versus the general II system for exchanges
I read that Hyatt has it's own website with II for exchanges. Do Hyatt points pull same resorts for trading as a week from some other resort (comparable to Hyatt) deposited in the general II system?

good hyatt broker reference
* Can somebody give me some good references for buying Hyatt resale. I have seen the following being mentioned in the forums
- RE/MAX Town Centre 1-800-699-5095 ext: 194 (Angie Edwards)
- Glenn at www.atimetoshare.com

* What is a good price for a 2000pt resale week?
