We're planning a trip for the 2nd or 3rd week in June and I've been checking Skyauction periodically to see if there are any good condo auctions for that time period. So far I haven't found anything and I'm wondering if it's because the resorts haven't released inventory to Skyauction for that time period yet or if it is just unlikely that there will be anything available since that is getting into the busy summer season. I would love to get a deal like some of the ones I've read about on here (like less than $500 for a week) but I don't want to wait too long to book and then have to settle for something I'm really not happy with. So far the properties I've liked on sites like VRBO are going to cost me somewhere in the $950 - $1200 range. Is that probably the best price I'm going to find for a villa or condo in mid-June? I'm coming to the conclusion that it may be since I want somewhere that has a resort feel with a nicely decorated unit, nice pool, etc. I hate to give up on getting something cheaper but I want to be realistic about what's available for less. I'm trying to decide if I should just bite the bullet and book something I really like for more money rather than wait until the last minute and risk having to settle for something I don't really like and possibly still not save much money.:confused3 Any advice?
