So what about timeshare exchange possibilities? Of course it will be one of the most difficult exchanges you’d ever do because the people who pay that kind of money for a timeshare aren’t going to be in a hurry to give it up to go somewhere else.
Typically, it takes 5 years before there’s any decent amount of exchange activity. Since West 57th Street is part of the Hilton Club, Hilton members will be scooping up most of the availability in the beginning before RCI members. This is typical for any new timeshare that opens in a marquis location, is a brand named and part of a club.
So here are a few timeshare exchange strategies to help you out for this, or any extremely difficult exchange.
First, call RCI and see if they are taking requests for West 57th Street now. If they are, give as many dates as possible that you’ll accept between October 2009, a few months after grand opening, and May 2010. (you can’t request more than 2 years in advance)
Next, tell RCI you’ll accept any size suite, including a studio, even if you’re giving up a 2 bedroom. This increases your chances exponentially.
