Hello Folks,

I first would like to thank the TUG community for all the invaluable knowledge I have been reading over the last serveral weeks.

I'm a new member and I have just closed on purchase of a Marriott Grand Chateau week. I won the auction on ebay on 12/02/11 for $1625 + closing and I just received my recorded deed today! The unit is a 2BR lock off EOY. I called Clark County's Recorders office and verified the recorded deed and also verified via the website (once I got to the correct page! :) )

Deed has been sent to Marriott and just waiting on them to record me as the new owner.

The seller was CJ Timershares and the closing/escrow company was Timeshare Closing Services. Both companies were very responsive to my questions and got the deal closed very quickly. One thing of note, I got my deed sent to me via email. Apparently Clark County allows for electronic recordings and TCS is one of the escrow companies that are setup to do electronic recordings of deeds. Just FYI if someone ends up using TCS, you may close very quickly if the county where you timeshare resides allows for electronic recordings.

Seller was able to make a reservation for us during the closing process so we will be in Vegas during Easter Week!

Just wanted to post an update that transfer with Marriott is complete and we are new recognized owners. Whole process from purchase to ownership transfer was just a little over a month.

I purchased Marriott Manor Club from CJ Timeshares on Ebay 1/2/12. Glad to hear you had a good experience! I just passed Marriott ROFR 1/13. I am hoping all goes smoothly. Thank you for your report.

Marriott Grande Vista 3 bedroom EOY
I purchased a Grande Vista EOY 3 bedroom on 12/29 within 2 weeks of placing a wish ad on Tug. Closing/escrow company was also timeshare closing services. ROFR passed on 1/6. Electronic deed emailed to me on 1/9. Now just waiting for Marriott to put in my name.

Congrats to the OP for your purchase. I paid Marriott $27,000 for a two br every year unit but got a lot of pre-construction points and other freebees. It's a great resort if you like LV and the two bedroom is a nice unit. The location is excellent. If Marriott eventually lets you enroll in the system you made a great deal. It's also a pretty good trader through II right now.

Great. That was fast. Good to hear that Marriott is also on the ball with fast transfers once they get the paperwork. I remember the days of waiting eight to ten weeks to get a transfer done once the paperwork was in their hands.
