OKW purchase

We are in the process of trying to purchase more DVC points through resale. Our first experience didn't work out....our offer for points at OKW did not pass ROFR (as I know many don't). Should I try again for OKW? At what price do you think it will pass? I was doing a lot of research and comparisons today, and OKW seems like the best value for us. But if our offer won't pass ROFR, then it will be a waste of time! Any advice would be appreciated.

Buy your home resorts based on where you love to stay, not on best value or cheapest price. You get what you pay for.

OKW and SSR are usually available at less than 7 months so home resort booking advantage doesn't really help there.

Nothing worse than spending thousands of dollars for a contract and not being able to book where you really enjoy staying or having to settle on somewhere else because you didn't buy there.

You might want to check out the ROFR thread, http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3001288

They frequently have discussions of the price that OKW passes ROFR or which contracts were ROFR'd. Good luck, hope you get the contract and price you want.

When you are purchasing OKW resale, be sure to check if they expire in 2042 or 2054 (not sure if that's the correct extended year). That could make a difference in the price.

I have to agree with Bill. Buy at a place you want to stay if that were it and if OKW is the one, then keep at it.

While there are a lot of contracts that were bought back---sorry that your first attempt was one of them--there were a lot that went through.

IMO, pick the price point you think would still make it a good deal for you and go with that...

But, I don't think I would buy a different resort simply because you hope it gets through ROFR if that is not what you want. We spent what we did to own at the two places that remain our favorite--BLT and BWV.

Good luck!

I was all for purchasing OKW as first choice until the dues went up. For a while there, they were the cheapest. Guess it went to paying for the latest room remodel, but that should have been included all along.

I'm curious as to why Disney keeps buying these back now, even the 2042's.
