Simple question (I think...? lol)

This may seem like a very silly question, because I've always assumed that it is in fact the case, but I've never seen it directly addressed. I've been looking into buying resale in the last year or so, and was wondering, are the Hilton Head and Vero Beach points just as good at Disney World? The only reason I ask is because it almost seems too good to be true, considering the resale price for those two is considerably less per point. From what I've always understood (please correct me if I'm wrong..) your home resort means you can book at a year instead of the eight month mark and that's really the only major difference? Am I looking at this too simply? Is there more to it? Forgive me if this is addressed somewhere, I did some searching and couldn't find direct answers to the things I was curious about.

Thank you in advance for any help.

Dues are higher at both and you can book at other DVC resorts at 7 months. So overall you will pay less upfront you will pay more in the long run with dues. If your looking to buy in cheaper consider ssr. Dues and buy in is almost as cheap.

I knew I was missing something! lol I didn't even think about looking at how much the dues for those two resorts were...silly me. Although SSR is my first choice for the price and the treehouse villas.

Thank you!

The thing about VB and HHI is that you can't ensure a WDW trip from 7 to 11 months out. Sometimes it is hard to get WDW at seven months out.

But lots of members love HHI and VB.

IMO and at the current resale price, the up front savings are not enough to justify a purchase to use the points at WDW alone. My opinion is that in order to buy for this purpose, one needs to be at or under $25 a point unless they can find a subsidized VB contract where I think $35 a point is around the cutoff needed.

If it was a great deal everyone would be buying there and there would be no available points. The price would increase due to demand and DVD would exercise their ROFR.
