DVCNews Debates: Minimum Buy-In

Written by Tim Krasniewski on . Posted in DVCNews Debates

DVCNews Debates

The minimum purchase threshold for Disney Vacation Club ownership has been on the decline for many years.  At one stage in the 1990's owners had to purchase at least 230 points in order to join the Club.  Later these numbers declined to 160 points, 150 points and 100 points as a minimum.  There are reported instances of DVC allowing a first-time buyer to purchase even less than 100 points as a new owner.  

It leads one to question the impact of these reductions impact on owners and DVC itself.  Smaller contracts would seem to help make DVC more affortable to some buyers, however a reduction in the minimum purchase means smaller and smaller contracts with largely the same administrative overhead for the seller.  

 Topic:  Has a reduction in the minimum purchase been good or bad for DVC and its owners?
