I learned the hard way that the Canada Post system doesn't talk to the US post system. So they can only follow a package to the border! They eventually get a report from the US but 30 days later... So while certified mail is safe (my package finally arrived after three weeks - that's an average speed of 3 mph) it is not guaranteed to be fast and you might be left in the dark for a month.

So my advice is not only make sure that your package is traceable but pay extra to guarantee delivery within a few days. Will use Purolator or UPS next time, not Canada Post.

I think you should have the points in your account within two weeks for an add-on. Good luck!

Going to ROFR!

Hi everyone,

Firstly, I just want to thank everyone for all of the great information here. If it wasn't for these threads, I would not have been able to interpret the information in a contract in order to make a fair offer that I am happy with. So this is what I got (same seller):

100 SSR (Aug) - all 2012, all 2013. $45/pt
210 BCV (Aug) - all 2012, all 2013. $59/pt

Seller pays 2012 mf's, buyer and seller SPLIT closing costs .

I honestly doubt the BCV will pass ROFR, but you never know!

I've always used wire transfers to pay, that way the closing company has everything from my as fast as possible

Congradulations, nice contracts. Hope that BCV gets through for you.

Latest update through 10/5 has been posted on the first post of the first page of the thread. To save some "thread space", I'll just paste the latest update on that first post on the first page.

Unhappy Awaiting ROFR

We contracted for our first DVC property around 9/16/12 = Saratoga Springs, 150 points, Sept. UY, $50.67 per point. Includes all 150 2012 points and 150 points 2013 etc. We paid 2012 maintenance and closing. Went to Disney for ROFR around 9/19/12.

We contracted for our second DVC property around 9/26/12 - OKW, 150 points, March UY, $50 per point. Includes 150 of 2012 points banked, 150 2013 points etc. Seller paid all 2012 maintenance. We paid closing. Went to Disney for ROFR around 10/2/2012.

Reading about ROFR - after reading this thread, I am feeling a bit anxious about getting through ROFR.

I wouldn't be anxious about it. I think that this thread tends to get people a bit worked up and sometimes new buyers get all wrapped up in "distracting the monkey" and other playful things like that. It's all in good fun, but if you want to get a good idea about what contracts are likely to get taken by ROFR, look at the data on page 1 of this thread. The trend is (and has been for some time) that low priced BCV and a large percentage of OKW contracts are getting taken. If you are buying one of those, your chances are not great. If you're not buying one of those, your chances are great. Good luck either way, but there's no need to be nervous. There's always another contract out there.

Didn't want to post this before because I was afraid to jinx myself.

Disney waived ROFR today!!

140 VB (Feb) $33/pt, 7 '12 pts, 280, '13 pts, 140 '14 pts, no '12 MF, buyer pays closing, seub 9/13, passed 10/9, Fidelity

Thanks to everyone on the boards for all the posts that helped us get a great deal and finally become DVC members (a dream of mine since first going with my aunts when I was 13 years old in 1994!!) Especially this thread! Seeing what the lowest that passed and didn't pass ROFR helped us find what we thought would be the perfect per point price at Vero.
