Okay! Found a gentleman on TUG about a Wyndham timeshare at MB Ocean Boulevard. It is 154000 points and he is giving away. He said be can prep all the paperwork for deeds transfer to save me hundreds of dollars. Spoke with him and he seems to be stand up! Kinda excited but reserved as a new time sharer. What y'all think Rutgers?
From what I've read in your posts, Wyndham would be a good fit for you. They have 5 Myrtle Beach locations, 2 in Tennessee , 3 in NC and 5 or 6 in Florida, including Orlando. They all are 4-5 hours from you with the exception of Florida. Plus, it is a points based system and they have resorts all over the USA, including Hawai'i and you can go most any time if you have the points available. Lastly, depending on how many trips you take a year, you generally do not have to pay any additional fees for reserving at different resorts within the system, meaning that your maintenance fee are all you would have to pay yearly. BUT, I am not sure that 154000 points would be enough for you, because it takes 225,000 points to get a 2BR condo at some of the newer resorts in prime season like summertime in Myrtle Beach or Ski season in the mountains. With that being said, I would advise you to study the system more and ask a lot of questions before you take on the bill. There are other systems available, but Wyndham offers the best value/resorts/flexibility correlation of any system of timeshare. Some cost less, others are more luxurious and few have as many choices of locations as Wyndham. These are strictly my observances and I am definitely biased. Check it out for yourself, and if you decide Wyndham, a larger contract may be in order, but don't overload yourself because it is way easier to add than to take away. Good luck on your search.
