Wow, I want one like that!

I have seen bankruptcy DVC on auction websites before, but I have never been brave enough to bid on one.

Once I was all set up, my other DVC (that just closed 4 days ago, and is a different U/Y) was already showing up online, but the points weren't loaded yet. I'll be booking the second part of my vacation with the banked points from that one.

I'm deliriously happy right now!
Thanks for everyone's help!!
Congrats on your great deals...the extra points make that one an over the top Good deal!

310 BCV (Apr) $44, 21 '11 pts, 198 '12 pts, all '13 pts, buyer pays closing and split 2012 mf (sub 10/3, passed 11/27)

190 BCV (Apr) $46, 0 '11 pts, 110 '12 pts, all '13 pts, buyer pays closing and split 2012 mf (sub 9/26, passed 11/27)

The broker botched the paperwork on the first submission and I didn't start asking questions until 4 weeks had passed. They had to resubmit everything on 10/26. Fortunately, Member Services was very helpful and let me bank the remaining 2012 points 1 1/2 weeks late.
Those are very impressive prices for BCV. I'm amazed they never got ROFR. Congrats

If it was a bankruptcy sale, Disney doesn't typically like to get tied in situations like that.

I am a little late in posting but I just wanted to add my information since this thread was SUPER HELPFUL in helping us to decide how much to bid. I don't think I ever would have ventured into the DVC resale market without this site. We closed a few weeks ago.

160 SSR Aug, 160 2012 pts and all points going forward, paid $51 per point, buyer paid closing fees, seller paid 2012 maintenance fees

Looking forward to booking our first trip!

Sorry for the delay in reporting back, i've been out of touch!!

Our 75 Pt, March,2057 OKW passed ROFR
submitted 10/29, heard back 11/27 - i was surprised to see an extended contract take the full 30 days...... but, I just looked back, and the 27th was a Tuesday - in keeping with what others have been reporting.
Pd 66/ppt - initially not thrilled with the price, but still less than retail, and we got our UY!!
Thanks again to everyone who reports on here- you've been a great help. Its also wonderful to see others get their own piece of the magic!
Happy Holidays to all....

Member Since March 2010 ... and adding on!

Received word today we passed ROFR. VWL 50 points at $66 per point. The use year and resort match what we currently own and it was exactly the amount of points we were looking for. Feel so relieved.

March 2011 BWV - December 2011 VWL - October 2012 BLT - Disneyland February 2013 - October 2013 SSR - October 2014 VWL

Bought 75 HH points (2 contracts totaling 75 points) a year ago (we are on the passed ROFR list) and we had planned to add on more at some point. With all the talk of Disney maybe changing the DVC rules soon, we decided to look into adding points ASAP. I was wanting to just add 25-50 and buy direct, but DH can't bring himself to pay $80/point. So we found an 88 point resale with Aug UY and just made offer. They have it priced pretty high at $63/point and we only paid $50/point last year for our 75 point contract, so we offered $53/point and asked them to pay 2013 dues since they used most 2013 points but borrowed 2014 points for a trip they must have cancelled (so there are points for 13 but not many for 14). We will pay cc which are high with this particular company. Will post back if they accept our offer.

edit to add: they already accepted our offer...but I am not sure how I feel about only having 82/88 points for 2013 and 21/88 points for 2014....having second thoughts. Direct at Disney would get us all points for 2012, 2013 and 2014. CC would be $30 versus the $750 with this resale company.

Edit: we are going to move forward...will post back when we go to ROFR.

Got the email yesterday that we passed ROFR!!! Submitted to Disney on Nov 27 and got word back that we passed on Dec 18...21 day turn around. Given all the posts here lately, sounds like Disney is trying to clear the books before Christmas!
