Reliable DVC Resale companies

Hi,
Can anyone suggest some known reliable companies through which to buy a DVC Resale contract? Or is there a list somewhere on here?

I know that TSS is a favourite on here but what about others?
Thanks

We used the timeshare store and had a great experience with them. There were a few others who we looked at listing with and they just didn't seem to have as much inventory. We also sent an offer in initially with fidelity and It was already sold but they never followed up beyond that. Scott with timeshare store continued to follow up with us after we lost out on our first choice with timeshare store until we found another contract that fit us. I would definitely recommend them.

I used the Timeshare Store and the staff is very helpful I recommend them highly. They made everything easy.

If you subscribe to TSS newsletter you will get new listings daily. They typically have 8-10 new listings every day

I have found that Fidelity has the best prices, but also has a $195 admin fee. They also seem to have the most inventory. Customer service with them seems to be somewhat hit or miss at times.

Is buying directly from a DVC owner possible? (Like for sale by owner with normal real estate). I am wondering why you never see FSBO DVC.

It is possible to buy from an owner, but not very popular for some reason. One place to look is the TUG (timeshare Users Group) marketplace.

We purchased from both TSS and Fidelity with great results, both companies were excellent to work with.

I also had a recent negotiation agreed upon with the seller through DVC by Resale. However the broker refused to use my preferred closing agent, and insisted upon "the one we always use". I said no, and will never deal with them again, since they would not allow me to use a different title company. I wonder if they told the seller why he lost that contract!

Fsbo

I wish these boards or other boards had a FSBO section so we wouldn't have to keep paying the brokers 10% in fees. I don't think a lot of people looking into DVC know about the TUG marketplace

What benefit is there for a buyer to purchase directly from am owner? A lower price would make ROFR more likely, plus you're relying on someone who doesn't necessarily know the process required to transfer ownership. I'd but a FSBO if I thought I could save money, but, since you really can't, it doesn't seem worth the extra risk or headache.

yep, if the buyer has to pay the same amount regardless, i expect people will trust the timeshare store (for sending a check for thousands of dollars) a whole lot more than they trust "chalee94." i'd love to save the commission, sure, but no one ever offers a rationale for the other side of the transaction.

Granted there is no rhyme or reason to ROFR, but if you look at the statistics on how many contracts actually get taken (very small) and come up with an educated final agreement, it's not hard to figure out a number that has a good chance of passing AND passes along the savings to the buyer.
The actual process of transferring ownership is unbelievably easy. The seller doesn't even do anything but basically find a buyer and create the contract - the title company handles everything.

I disagree that the buyer has to pay the same amount regardless. I bought an OKW at the beginning of this year for $65pp. I have a FSBO contract that is in ROFR right now for $58, which both sellers almost net the same. I'm the one saving here, and there was a loaded OKW that passed ROFR at $58 not too long ago. My contract has current points but no banked so I think it's going to pass.
I've also sold some contracts on my own...all funds are held in escrow by the title company. No check gets made out to me; everything gets written in the title company's name so it's all secure.

Everyone knows they will try to get the absolute best deal no matter what...even if you are negotiating through a broker, are you going to sign the contract for $58pp for OKW or $62pp because you think $62pp has a better chance of passing ROFR?
