Interesting about Fairway Villas. I would have never guessed that resort as one Marriott would build out any time soon, if ever. Then again, that is a resort I do not follow, but I've heard great things about it. Someone from my work who lives in Bucks County, PA has friends who spend Thanksgiving there every year.

I thought Aruba was one of the resort areas Marriott is currently selling via resales but I guess not.

Marriott should sell reslae weeks for every resort. I do not understand why that is not the case right now, honestly.

We'll see if it really happens.

As far as the build-out, I should say that my source is the front desk at the resort. I had asked if there were any plans to build the next building and she said that they just had a meeting a few weeks prior to say that another building will be built. They were told the purpose is to sell points.

As far as the resort, since I have owned there (10 years) I have been there 5 times. Each time during the peak of the summer. Each time, the entire resort is full. I have even tried to get a week during spring/fall for an extra week via II or even a night through Marriott. I have never found inventory. I know others have, but I have not. So it is a pretty popular location. It is such an easy drive from NY and even from Boston. That's a majority of the visitors that we meet.

For resale, I believe the entire resort must be sold out before they start resale. Ocean Club in Aruba has resale, but Surf Club does not. I do not know if they are 100% sold out, but I would guess not. Probably really close though.

They offered:

Fairway Villas Platinum 2BR - $2300 less $500 admin fee ($1800 total)
There is not currently a resale program through Marriott for either property, so that was not an option. (referring to having them list my weeks for resale and they take 40% commission)
Is Marriott saying what these timeshare weeks are really worth? I'd hate to ask them about my mud season Vail studio's worth to them!!!

Not only NY, Jersey and Boston but also Philadelphia, eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and Baltimore. It's a very busy resort spring thru fall. I'm trying to get one nignt in Oct. for a golf trip and no luck so far.

I disagree. Marriott, thru the magic of the DC, is now able to turn these weeks into points. Abara Cadabra presto chango poof!


Maybe we can start building a database of recent marriott offers for buybacks.

You can disagree all you want but try asking Marriott what they would offer for a Vail mud week studio. Just because it has a point value on a chart doesn't mean it is worth much in real dollars. There is no way they take this unit for more than zero after netting the $500 fee.

Everything has value my friend. It just depends upon your point of view.
A plot of swampland in central Florida is worthless to me, but to a Florida developer it may be a gold mine. Just sayin

EOY buybacks?

Has anyone heard of offers by Marriott to buy back any every other year weeks?

Some of the low value weeks actually were offered 0 (ZERO) points for enrollment. I think some of the low value ski resorts were like this.

This is different than a buyback. Sometimes in order to get a listing, you have to have been on a resale waiting list for a while, perhaps years. A buyback would happen pretty fast (150 days?), but waiting on a resale waiting list for an eventual listing could take considerably longer.

Giving them back my Monarch week

It is a pathetic buyback offer, but it goes in the trust. In points, my 2 BR Hilton head week during PGA tournament worth less than a 1BR Vegas in the worst season. From the reps... Apples and oranges - why are you worried about the new sytstem? You would obviously never use it

Good riddance as I don't want the long term liability.

They never did respond to my email but i called and got an offer over the phone. Less than what I paid but probably more than it would bring on ebay. Now I need to think it over.

Out of curiousity I contacted Marriott about our 1BR Platinum Grand Chateau week. They offered $2400 minus $500 in administrative fees for a net of approximately $1900. I think we're going to take the deal because we bought it resale and actually will make money. I want to start trimming down the number of weeks we own and in looking at some resale history on ebay, etc., a one bedroom just isn't that interesting to people. So, this is a good deal for us.

The resale dept. I don't have the number on hand but it was easy to find. The season was special I believe. The one that includes spring break. I believe all ch units are 2 bedroom. Yes there are fees. I don't want to discuss any numbers but the price and fees were reasonable.

Purefct, I moved your post to this current ongoing thread because it's possible that Marriott will not match the offer that was made months ago for a similar Week.

Post #2 in this thread includes a link to Marriott Vacation Club Resales; the (new?) tab on that page, Sell Weeks, brings up this info (bolding mine):
