Although the ROFR thread is nice, I also think there is some pressure that people always want to prove they got the "best" deal and post it on there. So this leads to people buying at a price that seems higher that the ROFR thread and not posting since they didn't get the "best" deal, or it would not shock me if a few of the listing (go ahead and flame away) are not shall we say 100% accurate.
That being said there are as always deals to be had, sometimes it's just a matter of luck.
Welp, I clearly didn’t get the memo about posting only the best deals on ROFR thread cuz my $145 for BWV points is just barely a step up from direct sales. But I passed ROFR easily and got my uy and # of points I wanted and will save almost $5k.. I’m pretty happy. Now just need estoppel and closing doc to make it all real! For me I used the ROFR front page to let me know what I need to bid for it to pass ROFR. I definitely wasn’t necessary looking for the best deal but what will match my budget and most likely pass since I can’t handle the heartbreak to have contracts taken over and over again.
