Let’s keep the bougie going this week as we tackle Disney Vacation Club’s worst Grand Villas. When we say worst, we really mean we’re going to be a bit nit-picky. Is there such a thing as a “bad” DVC Grand Villa? Probably not, but there might be some DVC Grand Villas that just might not be your style or might not just be your personal favorite.

I recently purchased a contract from Marissa. It had taken a while to convince my husband that we needed more points. When I did, it was because of My DVC Points that I decided to use Marissa. I had listened when she was on the show and liked her personality. (Splurge on Bungalows is a life goal for me). I emailed her on a Thursday evening at 8:57 pm. CST I was extremely surprised to get a response in less than 10 mins. I am the type of person who does a ton of independent research on a product before I invest my money into something. I already knew what I wanted and how much I was willing to spend. Some could even classify me as ‘picky’. LOL. I told Marissa the very specific parameters that I wanted and it wasn’t very long that she found a match. She found that match in 3 days. She didn’t try to sell me on something that I wasn’t interested in. She didn’t try to tempt me to purchase a higher point contract or a higher cost per point contract. I truly appreciate that. She was very helpful and answered all my questions. She even reached out to say congrats once everything was finalized. The next time I am able to magically convince the hubs for more points, I totally intend to use Marissa again!

Monera launches a new program that allows people to purchase resale contracts with lower down payments. Not every contract will quality, however, the team at DVC Resale Market will help you find a contract that works for this program. Given that we’re just now starting to receive stimulus payments and tax refunds are right around the corner, this new program should be of interest to many members looking to add-on more points or prospective members looking to buy their first contract.
