We are An Awesome
DVC Member Community
Andy Berry joins the show to review September 2021. In all but 3 resorts, we had a slight decrease in average sales price. Disney has been more aggressive in exercising its right of first refusal on contracts. 80 contracts were bought back during September (which is more than the last three months combined). We saw huge spikes in Animal Kingdom, Saratoga Springs, and Old Key West. At the time of recording, we saw 400 active contracts on the market.
Robert Campbell had a very hard decision when buying DVC. They even used the 10-day timeshare cooling-off clause to cancel their first direct contract. However, when the timing was right, they bought into DVC and it's been one of their best decisions. Episode 173

One of the most critical things to understand in how DVC works is banking, borrowing, and transferring points. We break this down the most common questions we see members ask involves this concept of banking, borrowing, and transferring points. It's a complicated topic and quite honestly, most members have 200 points or less and only use them once a year. Every DVC professional will tell you, members simply do not understand how this works. Resale and Rental sponsors love the fact we create educational content here because it makes serving members easier when members understand their membership. Tune in to learn all about banking, borrowing, and transferring points. Episode 171
