I walked the entire property with a client today who is shopping for a three bedroom villa.
A good question to ask is what might be available by the time it's your turn to pick if you sent in your deposit today. With 100+ reservation deposits in for an available 123 units, the pickings get slimmer as each day passes.
After the touring around, I conclude that the best selection is going to be right at the $1,200,000.00 price point. At this level, you will be purchasing villas that were going for around $2,200,000.00 and these villas have some of the best views at the property. At this price point, you may be able to score a 14th - 16th floor penthouse level villa in the Ocean Tower with amazing 180 degree views of the three lagoons. At this same price point, you might also be able to purchase a three bedroom villa in the Beach Tower facing towards the swimming pool with a beach view when looking towards the right.
Give me a call to setup a tour of the property or to discuss strategy on which villa may be the correct fit for your situation. Tomorrow, it's alternating between the sauna and steam room on this rainy day with a dip in the pool and ocean if the sun peaks out.

If you are thinking about purchasing at the Final Sales Event at the Beach Villas, please allow me to represent you as your buyers agent on selection day. There is no cost to you and your purchase price is exactly the same. However, the villa you select and how much you pay for it will make a big difference in your profitability; both from an appreciation standpoint and if renting, covering expenses by "getting heads in beds"
