    Default DVCNews Debates: Price Increase Impact

    Several days ago, the prices on most Disney Vacation Club resorts increased with several older properties crossing the $200 threshold. All of these destinations can also be purchased via the resale market. But with direct prices rising, sellers may soon seek higher asking prices when selling their unwanted points. If so, by how much will prices rise and how soon?



    Topic: What impact will the increased direct prices have on the resale marketplace?

    IMO, if Direct jumped up $20.00, resale can jump up at least $20.00

    I noticed resale prices jumped up as soon as DVC announced the price increase. Suspect they're just going to keep going up, especially for the harder to get properties such as BCV, VGF, and BLT. We've been on the wait list for BLT because we were having such a hard time finding a non-stripped contract that wasn't outrageously priced, but we're still waiting ... May not happen now ...

    LGM59 What do you mean when you stated you had a hard time finding a "non-stripped contract"? We are looking in to purchasing through resales as well.

    Many of the resale properties were already on the rise and I too think the increase on the direct purchase just pushed them up more. Keep in mind that the resale prices were pretty stagnant for a number of years even as recently as 3 years ago. With real estate going up everywhere, I am not surprised to have timeshares follow suit.

    If I was just starting to look at DVC I think the prices would hold me back from purchasing. The prices are so high and wages have not risen to match these increases. I have a feeling that there will be many more small purchases, putting additional strain on the studio availability. Plus there will probably be a large number of defaults on the loans after they have used their first 3 years of points. I just don't think our economy is that strong yet. People are carrying too much debt.

    Not sure what you are asking, but if you are asking what a "non stripped contract" is, a Stripped Contract is one the owner is selling with no points available. Not only did they use their UY allotment, they borrowed next years also. Buying a stripped contract you cab't use it for nearly two years.

    Also since the owner who is selling the stripped contract used next years points, they should be paying the annual dues for those points as part of the closing costs. It would be an estimated figure though credited to the money you owe them. In reality, DVC will expect the owner on the deed when the bill is issued to pay the taxes. That could easily be you depending on your closing date.
