I have only read OP's first post. Will go back to read rest. But I was one who walked. We wanted Sept 28-Oct 4 in 2BR standard view (which is studio and 1BR lock off so once all the studios are gone, so are the 2BRs). I noticed the walking too...around Oct 23rd for Sept 23rd is when I started looking. So I grabbed it up first thing at 8am on Oct 26th for Sept 26th and then on the 28th I dropped the 26th and 27th and added 2 days on the back end.
