How Long To Recoup Your Initial DVC Cost?

I just rented points for the first time and it got me thinking about buying a contract on resale. Here's how I ran the #'s and I'd love to hear comments or feedback.

Looks like the going rate to rent points is $11/$12 per point...so let's use $12 for this exercise.

Let's say I buy a Saratoga Springs 200 point contract for $11,000. This year the maintenance fees are $4.81 per point. So if someone paid $4.81 per point and sold them for $12...they'd realize a $7.19 profit per point. Selling all 200 points would net a profit of $1438 for the year.

Assuming a $11,000 cost to buy the contract....if I sold all 200 points each year and got a similar $7.19 per point profit...it would take me basically 7.6 years to recoup the contract cost. Am I looking at that correctly? Would anyone else like to share how long it took you to recoup the initial investment? I realize I didn't factor in what I'd lose by taking that $13,000 and investing it instead. I'm just curious to know if having that initital investment recouped in 7 years is a good deal...bad deal...or great deal.
