DVC Members love their home resorts for a variety of reasons. Chad, Valerie, Brad, and Sandy are back to discuss the three main factors people use when picking their home resort. Some people buy them because they love the resort. Others buy specifically for the 11-month booking window advantage. Yet other members are more influenced by the financial, economic, and deed expiration dates. We believe every resort is unique, and there's something for everyone to love in DVC. Join the conversation as we discuss these three factors across all of the DVC resorts.

Chad, Christy, Alicia, and Vicky discuss their experiences deeding and titling their DVC contracts and estate planning as DVC members. The fundamental question of estate planning is what happens to my stuff when I pass on? DVC markets this product in a fashion that you can leave this deeded estate product to your heirs. However, to do that, you should probably learn a few terms before hiring your estate planning professional in your state.
