Some do. Other don’t. Most understand the basics but it is a complicated system.
Which is why there are always posts (on various forums) where people find themselves in situations they haven’t come across before and don’t understand the rules. And people are always willing to help them out.
Is there anywhere where it runs you through the basics and why would it be better to buy used. What is the cost of buying new now. I understand they expire and I’m interested in tbe beach club and wondered what is the upside. Also Disney can block tbe sale and also you don’t get the same privileges. I understand the dates. I think we would be section 5. Either March and February or November would be our first choice of months. Who do you trust and what is the best way to accomplish this. Any hints
You could give would be wonderful. I don’t even understand all the listings.
I have to confess that I put in a lowball offer on a contract today just to see if I could get a good deal.
I didn’t get it and the broker called me back saying the winning offer was about $15pp higher than mine. She said the market is starting to heat back up again after hitting its lowest level in a few years. Could have been good salesmanship, but it’s plausible that people are putting their tax refunds into DVC.
Off topic: do you listen to the original DisUnplugged podcast? Did you listen to this week’s show to learn that Pete is no longer going to be doing the Tuesday show? He will still be doing DVC Fan, DCL Fan, and dining shows and reviews. I’m sad that he is leaving the main show.
This has me wondering if the downturn was waning interest (plus a lot of people wanting to sell) due to long-term concern about Disney’s future under Chapek…but now that Iger is back, and we are starting to see some forward momentum (or at least hints of forward momentum) in the parks, that people are a bit more hopeful and willing to invest into DVC again? Don’t know. Just a thought.
If I could figure out a way to do so easily, I would sell my SSR and buy a BWV contract given the pricing today. But we’re happy with SSR, and afraid that an attempt to switch would go awry somehow. If I had a ton of spare change laying around, I’d go ahead and buy BWV, and then sell my SSR with no urgency. But…my couch cushions are sufficiently empty for that to not be a wise maneuver.
Just curious, was the winning offer pretty close to asking or did they get any kind of “deal”? Some of the accepted offer notifications I’ve gotten the past few days have definitely seemed a little high compared to others recently!
