Andy Berry is back to provide a monthly recap for June 2020. For the third month in a row, DVC Resale Market had zero contracts bought back through Disney's Right of First Refusal (ROFR). Andy commented that DVC is taking longer than usual to waive their rights. Chad thought it was incredibly ironic that DVC is taking up to 50 days to say we're not buying it back and we haven't bought anything back in the last 90 days.
Here's the link to the DVC Resale Market Average Sales Prices for June 2020. Average prices, for the most part, were steady with some notable increases for Animal Kingdom. Chad commented that at an average price of $88 per point, Aulani is looking very attractive if you're interested in going to Aulani. Owners, get the lower point-cost rooms at the 11-month window which saves even more. According to the rack-rate analysis on the My DVC Points App, Aulani is one of the best uses of points compared to rack rate.
Andy briefly discusses a new way of looking at the resorts to see if an individual resort is leaning towards a buyer's market or seller's market. He takes the total number of listing on the site. Active listings are sellers without buyers. Inactive listings are sold inventory where a buyer and seller were matched. By looking at the ratio between each group and total listings, you can see if there are more sellers than there are buyers. Using this method, Andy noted that Grand Californian, Animal Kingdom, and BoardWalk are in low supply and are a seller's market. We also looked at the reverse where we have more Old Key West and Aulani sellers than buyers.
We also encourage you to check out some guaranteed reservations at DVC Rental Store. They have a high supply of guaranteed reservations at the moment.
