As you draw near the end of your DVC research, we highly suggest this strategy: Jump In, Buy Small, and Addon later. In previous episodes, Dani Metzger from DVC Resale Market challenged me to think about this strategy. We brought her back to discuss our thoughts in detail and why we highly suggest potential members consider this approach. Episode 248
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

about buy where you want to stay and the importance of the 11-month booking window, DVC room availability is a huge issue. It takes members a few years to learn the ropes.

Point management and understanding Use Year is one of the most complicated aspects of being a DVC Member. Every week we see DVC community members asking questions about Use Year. We think the topic is so essential that we highly recommend you, new members, fully understand this concept before they buy into DVC. If you don’t understand Use Year and how it sets up the rules for point management and flexible booking, do yourself a huge favor and listen to the show and ask questions in the My DVC Points Community group on Facebook.
One of the most frequently asked questions for people researching DVC is, “How many points should I buy?” Andy Berry from DVC Resale Market joins the show to give us the formal DVC guide answers and then we talk with 9 DVC members to see how many points they bought on their first contract.
