Join us for a lively conversation with Jody from DVC Resale Market as we explore the latest in the DVC resale market. We discuss Disney's Right of First Refusal (ROFR Monster) and how it's affecting contract sales. The ROFR Monster has only shown up seven times this year, a stark contrast to previous years. Listen in as we theorize that Disney might be diverting funds to pay off their Hulu bill and suggest that now is an ideal time to buy with the ROFR Monster in hibernation. Jody shares her insight into the ROFR process, and we chat about how Disney's decisions can sometimes be unpredictable.

(0:00:00) – DVC Resale Market and ROFR Monster (7 Minutes)
Today, we got an update from Jodi Gross at DVC Resale Market on the DVC resale market. We discuss the ROFR Monster, Disney's Right of First Refusal, which is the process of Disney reviewing and potentially buying a contract before it reaches the buyer. So far this year, the ROFR Monster has only shown up seven times, a stark contrast to previous years. We speculate that Disney is diverting funds to pay off their Hulu bill and suggest that now is a great time to buy with the ROFR Monster in hibernation. Jody provides insight into the ROFR process and discusses how Disney's decisions can be somewhat unpredictable.
