The two most recent postings by @raddoc and @chapjim really illustrate two different approaches to acquiring resale. Raddoc's purchases has a higher up front cost, but lower MF's of just under $.08/point. Chapjim picked up what appears to be three weeks for next to nothing, but I would estimate the MF's to be just under $.16/pt. Doing some rough math (using a 5% increase in MF's) I would guess it would take about 5-6 years before raddoc's deal gains an advantage over chapjim.
No right or wrong way to go here, but I am in Camp Raddoc as I am looking at a 10-15 year time frame and like having really low cost reservations.
I'm 77 y/o. My horizon is a bit different.
