Blogging a DVC Resale Purchase

One of the most frequently asked questions by potential DVC members is "what's the difference between buying direct from DVC and buying resale?"  Perhaps the simplest way to answer that question is to point out that a resale purchase can save the buyer substantial dollars but is more complicated and takes longer to complete.  So how much longer and more complicated?

Freddie and Dodie (and their two children) want to be DVC members.  Dodie has decided to share her experience with the world.  Thus was born the Our DVC Experience blog. 

Via a series of dated blog entries, Dodie takes readers through their 2-month quest to purchase a contract at Disney's Beach Club Villas.  The blog contains a wealth of practical experience for anyone contemplating a DVC purchase via resale.  

Dodie ultimately purchased her contract via Jaki at  It's worth noting that there are a number of other reputable brokers which deal in DVC contracts including Shontell at DVCbyResale and the folks at The Timeshare Store.   Sellers will often list their contract with a single broker, so buyers would be well advised to contact multiple brokers in their search for the perfect Disney Vacation Club contract.
