Sounds like we bought at the same time as you, we bought at Bay Lake and I think that that time they were around the same cost, and yet we only got 160. How much would we LOVE to have 320 to play with, you have NO idea.....

We financed as well, so I know half of your pain, LOL. My long-talked about plan to pay it off quicker hasn't materialized, so comparing what we've paid to what we have left to pay is hard...but at the same time, oh the JOY we have gotten from that money.

I would just hate to see you make a decision based on dues, then buy back in later only to face the same, or higher, dues. Even when financing, dues are still the higher total price over the years that one owns DVC.

"so valuable" But OP indicates family is no longer all that excited about going to Disney Sorry but it doesn't sound like they are "valuable" to them if that's really the case.

I am not a fan of the "keep at any cost" or "Rent" chants that occur on here.

DVC is not for everyone. If OP doesn't think the 'cost' is worth the 'reward' then the points are actually not valuable at all.

Disney makes a lot of money off of the "impluse" purchase. The folks who get to Disney, fall in love and think "we want to do this forever" then the kids grow up and maybe they don't want to do it "forever" or even "next year" LOL!

I have sold a lot of points over the past few years as my vacation habits changed. I still go to Disney but not as often. My new job has a lot less vacation and "freedom" then my old one so I actually can't go play at Disney anytime I want....

Defaulting puts you on the DVD black list and any future direct purchase would be on a cash bases only and they would require monthly dues payments.

It would surprise me if this were the case for contracts bought as a group. Even if it is this way, I bet they have the right to call the loan and I bet they do if there are payment issues on any of them. They can also block the entire account if one of them is behind.

You make some very good points here but I think that OP and others in this situation should carefully consider their options. Especially since they may still owe so much on their loans and could potenially lose thousands just unloading contracts in panic mode. If they can rent their points to cover MFs and maybe help to pay down their loan this year it could give them some breathing room and time to decide what they really want to do.

Knee-jerk and emotional/impulse actions run both ways.

If you follow that back to about Section II, you will probably find the early resales of AKV in the $90 range. As the current report will show you, AKV is selling, and clearing ROFR, now in the low $60's.
I did some looking and that interesting. Thanks for the link.

My answer is in response to the question of paying off the loans, not defaulting on the loan.

The contracts and their loans are separate from other contracts/loans. You can pay off one contract, sell it and and still owe on the others.

Good to know but it surprises me for points bought as a unit.

We bought 6 - 50 point contracts at BLT when they were "giving the free cruises". DD, an adult on the membership financed her 2 contracts for about 6 months until she got her pay bonus. She paid off one contract first and then the other.

Disney doesn't consider them as a unit even though they are all in the same membership and under the same master contract.

I don't believe that's consistently been the case from what I've heard over the years but I don't have any first hand knowledge.

this direction has taken me aback. really? i am surprise "of the
other"...that is, the whole concept of buying a "time"--share.

also the whole selling of points or weeks or part thereof would
come into play inclduing all sorts of legal matters.

then there all the off ramps connecting the main body ( the
parts of the building one is thinking they paid money for. )

first , see what i am saying.....if this was not a real option then
how could they even offer it--multiple contacts. and then how
could there be varying amounts of weeks/points of any unit if
one person contact isn't being define by the same principle/s?

there are 365 days x the amount of units that make up the
total points. the only restriction is dividing up the sells over
the limit of a 24 hrs period. i guess they could lower each
unit by each room & each contact for having the right to
stay 24 hrs and then extend them out to 365 days. therefore,
i would think the lowest amount of "weeks" or points would
be whatever the amount necessary for a single day. then
all of those 'shares" can then be extended out from day,
to days, to a weeks & greater. that would be a real
product for sale. now whoever name/s on each contact
would not matter how long or even many units are brought
by many or the few , as long as they each have a single
day to stay. it just liked the recent change/offer to buy
additional points , one time. mist come their reserves , &
i knw most are just trying to fill a vacation..but they are
impacting the other owners because they are opening up
more rooms to be off the market under the 7 mos
periods.

just an added observation, as i been trying to learn the
ins & outs of the dvc system---- but many of their "ways"
are just mind boggling.

& i have alwys wonder....why do dvc chose certain amounts
that they limit new buyers?

the thing that dean brought "up'--that single families ownership
covering different contacts of time shares could not be
divided into different sections , for ex. keeping one/selling 2
if they have 3 separate contacts....what control measures
for the dvc company to do this? time to me begins @ 24hrs
..and up from there ...while shares are all the owners
that make up the resort. so the only reasonable logic for
dvc to do this..would prevent any owner from resales- but
of course, no ways to prevent defaulting.

one thing that bothers me , how dvc tolerated the vandalism
and did nothing to the managers turning a blind eye. ( i talk
to many of the workers and their frustrations were clear.)

I did a check Using info from
http://www.disboards.com/showthread....3025864&page=6
and yes your dues are set to be $1814 this coming year but last year your dues would have been about $1740.

This is an increase of $74 not $200.

I get that $1,800 is a lot of money but it is about $6 a month more than last year.

Good catch! The OP's dues went up $211.20 over the last two years, not in just one year.

I think renting your points is the best option for you! My best friend just rented an extra year of her 320 AKV points to cover next years dues and then used the leftover funds on her Disney vacation that she is enjoying right this minute. She used Paul Little at the DVC rental store. I've used him in the past and highly recommend! Best part is he pays $10.25/ point, you recieve 65% the day reservation is made(through paypal) and remainder the day the guests check in! Good Luck to you

Wow. I have 310 points at BLT. Dues went up $0.28 so mine will increase $86.80 or $7.23 per month.

I thought AKV went up $0.28 also. Something's not right.

Sorry, I just checked and AKV went up only $0.24. Your dues increase should only be $76.80 since you have 320 points. Right?

Maybe I should call them and double check the numbers
thanks
