I wonder what the new resale limitations will be. Glad I got in when I did. We paid the asking price for our contract. It was a very reasonable price - $50/pt at SSR. The contract was neither stripped nor loaded. We have 23 points from 2012 and all 150 points coming in December 2013. We are now waiting for our purchase confirmation. Almost done!

Our timeline so far:

2/07/13 - Started researching and looking for a resale DVC contract
2/15/13 - Found contract
2/19/13 - Signed contracts
2/20/13 - Contract sent to ROFR
3/14/13 - Disney waived ROFR
3/20/13 - Received closing documents from title company
3/22/13 - Faxed closing documents back to title company and wired funds for the contract

You're a lucky duck! I'm soooooo nervous. I can't stop looking at these boards! We offered $3 over asking price at $63. Submitted to disney on the 20th....

Yes I was told more resales changes coming but those with contracts going to ROFR and current resales contract owners will be grandfathered. No date mentioned. So we will see if it happens. Since DVC has yet to announce the new classic resort price increases don't hold your breath for any prior notification.
So to be clear, you're saying that $52 for OKW and $55 for SSR are "ridiculously low" offers? I suppose we'll have to agree to disagree on that one. Where I do agree with you (maybe I just didn't communicate it clearly) is that my strategy might not get you "that" contract, but it will get you "a" contract. Clearly the way to win the contract you love is to go in with an offer of full asking price (or even a dollar higher) and you'll get it. What I'm suggesting is taking emotion out of the equation, and negotiating on a series of similar contracts in order to get the best price. While I agree with you that that strategy might not be for everyone, I disagree that it can't be done. This is an imperfect market and not every contract has equal demand.

Since then..just a smonth ago...I have seen my $108 pp look reasonable as many are listed at $120 with sales pending. Depending on the resort and the availability of points, I don't think offering full price is throwing your money out the window anymore than any other luxury purchase.
I agree, and I apologize if you took my comments out of context. My comment was specifically referring to OKW and SSR, two resorts with super high levels of demand and relatively homogeneous contracts. VGC is another animal altogether. But to my point about it being an imperfect market, Fidelity had two VGC DEC contracts with all 2012 and 2013 points on their website for weeks at $95 pp. So it does happen.

So while from a strict dollars and cents perspective loaded contracts are the best bet, buying a stripped contract has advantages which I have overlooked in the past.
Of my 3 contacts, one was loaded and the other 2 had full current UY points. I bought this way knowing I didn't need all the current points and would bank a good number of them, giving myself a cushion for years to come. I am of the camp that doesn't care about loaded, current is fine for me. And I think I did very well on my contracts. I am not into renting the points, yet I fully understand the theory of doubling up and vacationing essentially for free, I just don't have the drive.

ROFR strikes again!

Not at all surprised timing could not have been worse since inventory is now depleted! Back to the hunt Good thing we are not going again until mid 2014 so we have time.

BWV 222 points Feb UY 2013 points and forward 55.00 per point (list price)

Sent to ROFR 3/6 exercised ROFR today 3/25. Fidelity said they took 3 BWV contracts today.

Sorry to hear that! I submitted a BWV contract to ROFR on 3/5, so hopefully I'll hear back soon. It's a small contract with 0 2013 points, so I'm hoping it'll get waived.

Good luck! So far contracts without 2013 points have been passing through since Disney cannot resell them until the points become available - they would have to hold them and that does not make much business sense!

Wow, sorry to hear about it.

I am thinking really hard about selling my BWV right now. It is almost to the point where you could sell BWV and buy BLT for just a couple bucks more and have 18 extra years and a buck less a point in MF's.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that! Ours was sent on 3/17....so we still don't know yet....the only hope is it was a higher price but smaller contract, 100 points at $70.

Hmmm, good point! If ours does not go through, we may look at buying BLT instead.

Thank you - DH and DD's are not feeling my pain glad I have you DIS

Now is the time to sell BWV - resales are pretty depleted and prices are certainly up. We own BLT thought we paid a lot direct now I feel we got a deal! When I spoke with the broker I asked about a BLT 100 point contract my UY and it was gone - had 2 people interested in it.
