Congratulations! Since this is a Starwood resort, I'm going to move your post to that board.

Most Starwood owners exchange with II because of the 3 day priority to exchange for other Starwood resorts. If you can travel off season and you check II online diligently, you can exchange into some of the top Starwood resorts and even get a larger unit than the one you own. These Starwood "sightings" are also posted on the TUG Sightings Baord, which you can access if you become a TUG member.

See the this article for more info. - Exchanging Starwood with II

You got a good price for your purchase. Sheraton Broadway Plantation is a very nice resort, in a good location at Myrtle Beach. Its rated the second best timeshare in Myrtle Beach, behind the Marriott at Grand Dunes area. My biggest drawback with the resort is its about 7 blocks from the beach.

You did well

I own two weeks at SBP. They trade very well. I think $2100 includes closing costs, so you did very well.

Has the purchase closed yet and is the ownership transfer with Starwood completed? In other words, can you call Starwood now and and will they recognize you as the owner?

We own there, too, and I've seen it bring up better trades in II with an undeposited generic week than my WKV with a deposited spring week! We also like going there. That price is very low compared to other ones we've been tracking. Great job!

thank you very much...trying to learn as much as possible...what a battle I had on ebay trying to nail this one down....6 bidders and 48 total bids...somebody came in 2 1/2 minutes before the auction closed and raised the price $700...finally beat him out with $25 to spare.....:doh:

at first the distance from the beach put me off...but then when I discovered all the pools on prem..and the nearby attractions....and all the resort reviews did not mind the distance from the beach...because the resort was great...decided to make a go of it on ebay..............thanks for your input...appreciate it...andy

SBP questions for Andy / Users

Glad to hear that someone else got a great deal. We just bought an identical, Platinum, 2BR lockout at Sheraton Broadway Plantation for $1300 on eBay. Can you tell me how easy it was to close, reserve a desireable week, and/or trade into a desireable II week? The only worry that we have is the actual trading power of this property.:)
We're looking forward to getting started as we've gone on numerous promo visits, some good, most not so good.
Any tips would be appreciated!

If the seller is an individual, I would ask to get verification of the ownership (see if you can get a copy of the deed).

If you purchased from a brokerage on e-bay, ask them to provide you with a completed Estoppel to show you that the seller has what you are looking for.

I get nervous for e-bay buyers. While it is not the norm, there are horror stories.

There is an article about Starwood Exchanges through II in Owner Resources at the top of the forum, that will be helpful to you to read. It is listed under the "Exchanging" heading

You can see owner's postings of the actual exchange power of their Starwood Timeshares with II, on the TUG Sightings Board. But you have to be a TUG member to access this board. Click here to JOIN TUG.

BTW - there is an option to use Paypal to join TUG, but it requires a human being at TUG to process it, so it's the slowest method, so use one of the other methods of payment for faster access.

Once you join, you will receive a special members password that you have to add to your profile, in order to be recognized as a member. PM me if you need help.

Hi Robert

It was a few of my posts in the link you provided beating the "proverbial dead
horse"...can you share your experience so far? Did you try to book your deeded week? Did you then deposit it? Do tell all (or as much as you can).

Thanks Charles

We own a deeded week 32 (early August) at SBP. We bought in July 2008, and while escrow was pending, the seller was good enough to reserve us a week 32 for 2009 which transferred to us in escrow. The ability to reserve more than 12 months in advance (and thereby avoid the 6:00 a.m. telephone call) is very useful.

When I went to deposit the week at Interval, I got the usual run-around claiming that Starwood controls the week to be deposited. I persevered and talked to a supervisor who suggested that he "check his inventory" to see if he could match me up with a previously deposited week 32; he was able to do so. So I got my week 32 deposited and Starwood maintained its fiction that it can do what it wants.

I already have a week 32 reserved for 2010; I will run this same drill next summer.
