Hi,
On the paperwork sent for the makeover project to the courts section , it states an added benefit available to Courts Owners at completion of the project is membership into the Starwood Vacation Network. Does anyone know if that will also be available to someone that buys a unit from someone during now and the completion of the project?
Thanks
GKK

Check out a thread from Jan 22 titled "It's Official - Falls and Springs...."

We have determined the dates in that apply to all the remaining phases of SVR.

Here is a hyper-link to that thread. I wouldn't necessary use the word "determined," which sounds so darned final. I think the proper term would be that our current limited data "suggests that" any resale buyers after Jan 1, 2008 will likely be "screwed" by SVO.

nodge, thank you, I stand corrected. "suggests that" or "surmised" would have been more accurate.

I believe they are applying the dates I quoted in post #22 of that thread to all the resales at SVR.:D

better nodge?;)

You are not the first to had similar thoughts with people giving away SVR units right now. Some are even paying 2009 MF and SA and then still giving them away....and most can't. MAYBE they will reconsider the dates, but I/we think they are hoping to get a bunch back to sell again. That is the conspiracy theory anyway.:cool:

You're welcome!

I would be remiss in my advice giving if I also didn't answer the question the OP didn't actually pose, but must be tearing him or her up inside not knowing the answer to whenever he or she thinks about the VR refurbishment / special assessment:

According to SVO's MSC FAQ link in the article titled "Everything you wanted to know about the Sheraton Vistana Resort Refurbishment" . . . .

Yes! Kosher packages ARE available for a minimum of $35 per villa. Replenishing of all paper goods can be obtained for $10. The Kosher package includes:

50 paper plates
50 plastic spoons
11-piece new cookware set
1 new blender cup
50 plastic forks
50 plastic cups
1 new coffee maker
