Look, if you buy from the developer and think that you are going to rent it and make a fortune or sell it and make a fortune, you are really going to be unhappy
If you buy with the expectation of going wherever you want, whenever you want, you will be unhappy
If you find a unit you love , during a time you love, in a high demand/low supply location during peak times and have some flexibility, and buy it from a reseller, you will be pretty happy.
We have a unit that we paid $800 total for - 2 bedrooms/2 baths during New Years week. For that initial $800 and $400 every year, we get a beautiful unit in a fantastic location, have a full kitchen, hot tub, washer dryer, everything. We have had it 4 years now, and if I gave it away tomorrow, I would still feel as if I ended up way ahead.
It all depends what you paid going in and what you expect from it. You also MUST consider the management and financial condition of the place
Marriott has some beautiful properties - I don't feel that the ones in Colorado are among their best. Starwood (Sheraton/Westin), Hilton (only one ski property in Breckenridge), and Hyatt are some other of the names to consider.www.tug2.net
is a great resource. Take your time, educate yourself, and wait for the right thing to come along.
