Is it still possible to search for only fixed weeks on e-bay? I used to use the "Timeshare Finder" feature, and I would search on a particular week that I was interested in. For example, when I searched for fixed week 23, I would often get results that showed about 20 weeks that were for sale. Now, e-bay seems to have changed its search engine and when I search for week 23, I get over 1,200 matches. Almost all of these weeks appear to be floating weeks, which isn't what I'm looking for. I feel like I'm looking for a needle in a hay stack now, and it's just not worth my time. Does anyone know if it is still possible to do a search for just fixed weeks?

Thanks for your help!

It's still not working for me. I'm using the following page:

http://pages.ebay.com/realestate/timeshares.html

and the only criteria that I'm entering is the Week #. I just did a search on week 23, and it found 1,168 matches. This is exactly how I've searched for fixed weeks in the past, and I would always get 10-20 matches -- and they would be the true fixed weeks. Is there a different way that I should be searching?

Thanks again for your help.

Ohhh.... so that's how you do it

Yes, I was signed in, so that wasn't the problem -- but I figured it out. They made changes to the system, and I really wasn't paying attention to them. (I guess I'm becoming an old dog, and it's hard for old dogs to learn new tricks ... or to peform a different set of steps to search).:crash: After you perform a search, there is a button on the right hand side of the screen labeled "See search improvements" that you can click on to get an explanation of the changes.

IMHO, the timeshare search capabilities are actually quite a bit better. In the past, if I was interested in fixed weeks 23-31, I had to search on each week separately. Now I can click on the "Week of the Year" section and pick the weeks that I'm interested in, which allows me to search all of them at one time. I can also narrow it down by state, etc.(which I could do in the past, too). So, I need to do it in a two-step process now, but it will actually be a bit faster since I don't need to do a separate search for each week.

Thanks for your help!
