Return to TRIWest In The Press

For Immediate Release


LOS ANGELES--- Fifteen chattters from around the world (USA, Canada, France and Greece) registered to bid at TRI WEST's 16th annual auction. Nine of the chatters purchased 13 intervals. A French bidder working in and chatting from Russia bought a Club Bali Hai timeshare located in Tahiti.

"After 16 successful auctions, a live auction supported with mail-in bids and live internet chatters from around the world is the only way to sell a large number of different resorts in different locations quickly and at a fair market price," said auction sponsor Mario Collura of TRI WEST. According to Collura, 78% of the sellers who attended the auction and followed the TRI WEST minimum bid recommendations sold their timeshare week.

A total of eighty timeshares were sold with an average price of $1,714. Highest price paid was $6,400 for a week 16 at Vistana Resort in Orlando, Florida. Lowest price paid was $295 for a mid week at Plaza Resort Club in Reno, Nevada.
