Andy Berry joins the show to review September 2021. In all but 3 resorts, we had a slight decrease in average sales price. Disney has been more aggressive in exercising its right of first refusal on contracts. 80 contracts were bought back during September (which is more than the last three months combined). We saw huge spikes in Animal Kingdom, Saratoga Springs, and Old Key West. At the time of recording, we saw 400 active contracts on the market.

Member’s Experience with Andy
We just passed ROFR on our new CCV contract!!
I have researched this for over a year, went through numbers, benefits of direct vs resale, kept my eyes on all the contracts, and listened to ALL the podcasts that I could get my hands on before finally putting in a contract on THE resort that we had fallen in love with this past Christmas.
Thanks specifically to this community and Podcast as well as Andy Berry at DVC Resale Market for helping me through the process and finally be able to call CCV home 😍
When I purchased my first DVC contract, it was a resale contract through Andy Berry. Andy is always prompt to respond and had all the answers to my newbie DVC questions. He is so kind and warm to work with I was sad when the transaction closed because I would miss speaking with him! Andy made sure my first purchase was smooth sailing and even remembered my favorite Disney character! I have already contacted Andy again about plans to make another resale purchase as I know Andy is on my side.
Andy was amazing. Big Thanks! We had been dreaming of becoming DVC members for years but never seemed to be the right time, until we got in touch with DVC Resale Market, and specifically with Andy. He took us through the whole process, step by step, and with the assistance of the rest of their staff, we are happy to say that we are now DVC members. We are ready to start making those memories. Thank you, Andy… you’ve got a friend in me too! 🙂

Andy Berry joins us to discuss the DVC Resale Market for April of 2021. In short, its an extreme sellers market. Listings are flying off the shelf. High demand and short supply leads to increasing prices.
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.
Andy Berry from DVC Resale Market joins us this week to discuss this month’s happenings. Prices have stayed fairly consistent from November, however, there are few resorts that are in the buyer’s favor with good inventory.
Andy Berry is back to discuss the DVC Resale Market trends for October 2020. We cover right of first refusal (ROFR), average sales prices and inventory analysis.
Andy Berry joins us for our monthly DVC Resale Market monthly update. Disney exercised Right of First Refusal on 22 contracts in August 2020. We’re back to pre-COVID resale prices. August was a banner month for sales and inventory is slightly low.
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.
