(00:06) Exploring DVC Resale Market Trends

This chapter, we explore the current state of Disney Vacation Club (DVC) resale market with insights from Andy Barry of DVC Resale Market. We examine Disney's right of first refusal (ROFR) and note the low activity, with only a couple of Grand Floridian contracts bought back recently, emphasizing that now could be a great time for buyers. I discuss the implications of the average sales prices and trends, providing valuable information for those looking to address their add-on-itis or gauge their points' current market value. Additionally, we touch on the increased speed of the ROFR process, now averaging 16 days, and speculate on Disney's motivations for not shortening this timeframe further. Join us as we provide an update on the DVC resale landscape and what it means for members looking to buy or sell.

(07:51) Disney Vacation Club Resort Analysis

This chapter kicks off with a look at Bay Lake's anticipated hard goods refurbishment and how such upgrades typically boost market interest and property values. We then shift gears to discuss the outdated technology in Disney resorts, like 32-inch TVs, and the simple fixes that could be implemented, such as USB outlets. A comparison between the pricing of Beach Club and Copper Creek villas ensues, emphasizing Copper Creek's value due to its long lease life. We also consider the merits of opting for extended leases at Old Key West, and the potential resale benefits it offers. Finally, we touch on the excitement surrounding the new tower at the Polynesian Village Resort, the strong market performance of Polynesian contracts, and the personal experiences of Copper Creek ownership, highlighting how life changes can influence decisions to sell Disney Vacation Club points.

(19:48) Discussion on DVC Resale Market Trends

This chapter we explore the current state of the DVC resale market, highlighting an unusually high number of active listings, particularly at Animal Kingdom and Saratoga Springs, indicating a buyer's market with plenty of opportunities. We note the significant inventory at Copper Creek and discuss the value proposition of Old Key West extended lease contracts. Additionally, we introduce certified hot prices that offer no-haggle, below-market value deals and Magic Cash listings that include a Disney gift card at closing. We emphasize the potential for negotiation and strategic buying, especially for new buyers looking to test the waters of DVC ownership. We wrap up by suggesting that resale purchases can be a smart way to get acquainted with DVC while finding some exceptional deals.
