2016 ended on a positive note for direct sales of Disney Vacation Club points. In December 2016, 124,736 points were sold for the nine DVC resorts at Walt Disney World, a modest increase of 6.9% over the previous month. However, quarterly sales in 2016 for those same resorts recorded a healthy increase of 29.9% over the comparable three month period in 2015 (382,734 points in 2016 versus 294,686 points in 2015).

I ask partially because I have been thinking about DVC for a while. My wife and I have a planned trip later in 2017 where we rented points to test the accommodations. If we do go forward, we would really like to have the monorail amenity from Poly but are unwilling to move before we take that trip. Our plan is to check out Wilderness Lodge just to walk around and see the place at the time too however.
When Disney starts sales for CCV, it will probably price it a few dollars less than PVB's base price. Right now, that base price is $176/point. The Villas at Grand Floridian and PVB were discounted about $5 a point for the first 30 days.
My guess is that most buyers are interested in buying DVC's latest offering, so CCV will have a leg up on PVB. But incentives and special offers might sway some buyers toward one resort. Disney is currently offering incentives for PVB (100 one-time-use points at SSR and a cash discount if 150 points are purchased) but I don't know if Disney will offer similar discounts for CCV. Having discounts for one resort and not for the other is one way for Disney to push sales toward one resort over the other.
When you get to WDW, be sure to sign up for a DVC tour. Even if CCV is not open by the time of your visit, Disney should have a model villa or cabin available for you to look at.
