    Default Direct Sales Experience Seasonal Decline in November 2016

    Direct sales of Disney Vacation Club points in November 2016 were down compared to prior months while increasing year-over-year for the same period in 2015.

    I wonder how the gifting of DVC deeds for Christmas affects the monthly totals. I can see couples going to WDW for the holidays and deciding to buy, or a spouse decides to surprise the better half with more points. However, when a surprise is involved the documents are not returned until January. Is it reasonable assumption that January would be higher because of this December sales spree?

    Scheduled upcoming Disney trips:

    11/30/17 - 12/14/17 - Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary Resort
    03/01/18 - 03/08/18 - Copper Creek at the Wilderness Lodge

    The month of January is usually a good month for direct sales. The December holidays are a busy time for Disney with more guests visiting the Parks, which means more guests taking the DVC tour which, in turn, means more people buying DVC deeds. Perhaps due to the holiday spirit, I suspect there are a number of guests who are willing to give the gift of a DVC deed to their family or even themselves.

    One thing readers should keep in mind is that there is a slight delay between when a deed is actually sold and when it recorded by the servicing county clerk's office. For Orange County Florida, the majority of deeds are recorded by the Orange County Comptroller within 14 days of when the deed is signed and dated by the buyer. But there are a few buyers who do not return deeds to Disney for several weeks. In November's sales data there were a handful of deeds that were dated by the buyer in September. Keep in mind that, by law, there is a 10-day period after signing a deed that a buyer can cancel the purchase for any reason, so deeds can't be recorded until after that 10-day period.
